Mayor Apura eyes world-renowned urban planner to design new Carcar city center


Carcar City Mayor Nice Apura is eyeing a well-known urban planner and green architect to design the proposed new city center.

The Cebu politiko said he intends to tap Jun Palafox for the project.

Carcar City’s new city center will include a public transport terminal, a market, a public park in front of the new City Hall, as well as the rehabilitation of the old public market, and beautification of Mainit-Mabugnao Cave.

Apura said getting Palafox as consultant will cost the Carcar city government around P5-7 million.

He said he hopes Palafox wins the public bidding.

“Initial pa lang gyud. No specific plans or details yet. Duna lay mga discussions kung unsay mga gusto namo mahitabo ug unsay sitwasyon karon. But for sure, we want a sustainable development,” Apura said.

“I hope he wins the public bidding,” he added.
