LINGAYEN–The Pangasinan Eco-tourism Zone in the province will soon be a reality.
Considered on one of the special projects of the Espino administration, the zone will have its groundbreaking ceremony on April 5 Barangay Estanza in Lingayen as part of the celebration of the 430th “Agew na Pangasinan.”
Former President Fidel V. Ramos, a full-blooded Pangasinense, will be the guest of honor and speaker of the event, as a tribute to his vision that led to the segregation of parcels of land in Barangays Sabangan, Estanza, Malimpuec and Capandanan in Lingayen for eco-tourism and other sustainable projects of the province.
It was President Ramos who signed Proclamation No. 1258 in June 22, 1998, which empowered the provincial government to pursue the development of the 300-hectare eco-tourism zone in that area.
Gov. Amado Espino, Jr. will lay the time capsule that bears the documents describing the plans and the vision, inside a specially marked area on the site.
The eco-tourism zone will be a self-contained community that will include an 18-hole golf course, beach front residences, high-end and mid-range subdivisions, commercial area, amusement park, resorts and hotels, restaurant and retail shops, water sports area and a yacht club.
Local and foreign investors already visited the area and have expressed interest to invest in the eco-tourism zone.
Representatives from the business sector, tourism officers, regional officers of government agencies, and other stakeholders will witness the groundbreaking ceremony. (PIO/Rafael Manuel)
