Politics

Taguig City Mayor Lino Cayetano on Wednesday opened the first out of 19 multi-level community centers, the Rockyside Community Center, in Barangay Bagumbayan.

He said this is part of the local government unit’s vision in developing its infrastructure projects.

And despite its ongoing campaign against coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19), Cayetano said the city government still is committed to creating a safe space for its citizens and making different government services available in one area and closer to communities.

He added that the community center has a fully furnished common area and a lounge area for community groups, meetings, activities, events, and other functions.

“The area will also serve as a Government Satellite Office, where City Hall services such as the issuance of burial and financial assistance may be processed. A Child Development Center can also be found here, which can serve as a daycare center for young Taguigeños. Clean restrooms for men, women, and PWDs (persons with disabilities) are also available,” he said.

On top of these features, there is also a court for sports such as basketball, volleyball, zumba, and yoga for those looking to keep themselves fit and healthy.

Taguig police and village watchmen will be stationed in the area to maintain peace and order.

“As Taguig continuously adapts to the new normal and promising government officers are set to govern the city, Taguigeños may expect more infrastructures with similar features that will serve the community’s needs. Taguig is currently building 18 more community centers around the city, designed and meticulously planned,” Cayetano said.

He also said while reaching the #RoadToZero Covid-19 campaign, the city would continuously extend its effort to make infrastructures that will serve many purposes, including rooms for evacuation and emergencies.

“These infrastructure projects are proof that despite the pandemic, Taguig continues to log successes, which benefit our constituents in short and the long run,” Cayetano said.
