CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, April 20 -- Supporting projects and programs that will help the city attain its goals, the 18th City Council headed by Vice Mayor Raineir Joaquin V. Uy on Monday adopted Resolution No. 12662-2017, approving and adopting the Comprehensive Development Plan(CDP) and the City Development Investment Program (CDIP) of Cagayan de Oro City covering the period  2017 to 2019.


In his endorsement, Mayor Oscar S. Moreno said the updated CDP and CDIP were adopted by the City Development Council (CDC) during a full meeting last year.


In its Resolution No. 002, Series of 2016, the CDC cited that in the next three years, the city government shall continue to adopt its Eight-Point agenda to pursue its vision of development for the city through priority interventions supportive of efforts along Poverty Alleviation and Peace and Order, Revenue Generation and Resettlement; Infrastructure and Investment; Metropolization; Environment and Education; Housing; Health and Hospital Services; Agricultural Productivity; and Tourism, Teamwork and Traffic  (PRIMEHAT).


According to the CDC, the updated CDP 2017-2019 also identifies proposed legislative measures that seek to address policy gaps and other technical and/or administrative concerns that will help effect the desired outcome for an effective and efficient implementation of developmental interventions.


The goal is for the city of Cagayan de Oro to be an investment enabling city characterized by stable peace and order condition, climate resilient economic base, strong public-private collaboration that promote eco-friendly investment opportunities, and investor-friendly laws and regulations and support facilities.


The short-term goal of the social development sector is to alleviate poverty among local impoverished population through improved access to adequate, affordable and quality social services, hand in hand with promoting safe, orderly, and resilient communities.


Meanwhile, the city will also continue to adopt the same goal of providing adequate and quality infrastructure facilities to support and sustain socio-economic growth of the city.




Meanwhile, the CDIP translates into implementable programs and projects the development direction of the city government during the period.


The CDP and CDIP were reviewed and endorsed by the committees on planning and development and on laws and rules both chaired by Councilor Ian Mark Q. Nacaya. (SP)
