Bacolod named one of PH’s model cities
Bacolod City is still one of the Philippines’ “most livable urban centers.”
Bacolod came in second to Davao City in The Manila Times’ Search for the Philippine Model Cities and Municipalities 2018.
Laoag City placed third.
Mayor Evelio Leonardia on June 19 said the recogniton is “inspiring.”
Bacolod City came in first in the same award last year.
“If we come right after Davao, that is still something to crow about. Likewise, this ranking shows how consistent we are,” Leonardia said.
“We are very, very pleased. This, for me, is a validation and proof of consistency. Last year, we were called the ‘Top Model City’ and this time we came very close to that after Davao,” he added.
