Mayor Sara orders creation of zoning review team

November 16, 2016 By

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte has constituted the Local Zoning Review Committee (LRZC), a body responsible for the efficient and effective implementation of the city’s development plans, programs, objectives, and priorities.

The creation of the group was made Monday through Executive Order No. 24.

The EO underscores the committee’s task to determine necessary revisions to the zoning ordinance as introduced in the Comprehensive Land Use Plan (CLUP).

It is also mandated to identify provisions of the ordinance that are difficult to enforce or are unworkable — with the purpose of recommending revisions to the Sangguniang Panlungsod and the Davao City Planning and Development Coordinator’s Office (CPDO).

The committee is composed of the head of the heads of the CPDO, Davao City Health Officer, Davao City agriculturist, Davao City Engineer’s Office, and the Davao City Environment and Natural Resources Office.

The other members of the committee are the Davao City School Superintendent, President of Association of Barangay Captains, representatives of the City Chamber of Commerce, Housing Industry and Homeowner’s Associations/Urban Poor Community Associations and two representatives from nongovernment organizations considered by the CPDO.
