As promised when he took his oath as Father of the City two years ago, Mayor Marcy Teodoro’s administration is exerting all efforts to make the city a better place to live in, do business with and spend a relaxing vacation.


Part of this program is to build more infrastructure projects such as the renovation of Marikina Hotel to lure more tourists and visitors; improving parks such as the Freedom Park which will be reopened soon; building and fixing roads and bridges; building flood control facilities to solve floodings in the city, and  a lot more.


“Mahal ko ang Marikina at gagawin ko ang lahat para maisaayos an gating bayan!” Mayor Marcy vowed on June 30, 2016 when he took his oath as Mayor of Marikina.

What makes Mayor Marcy's projects more effective is that he personally visits and inspects them while they are under construction to make sure that they are on schedule, that the works are being done according to plan and if there are problems, they would be given solutions right away. For instance, he dropped by Freedom Park recently to supervise its construction.


In recent days, the Local Government has embarked on the following projects:

  • Building a new Rescue 161 Headquarters and Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office on Fortune Ave. in Brgy. Fortune;

  • Constructing a new Marikina Health and Social Welfare Buildings on J. Molina cor E. Santos Sts. in Concepcion Uno in  front of Concepcion Elementary School;

  • Putting up a new police outpost along Tumana Bridge to boost security in the area;

  • Constructing 99 alleys with drainage improvement in Tumana in partnership with the Department of Public Works and Highways;

  • Building a new Parkland Subdivision Multi-purpose Gym in Bernardo Circle Parkland in Malanday; and




  • Constructing a new Marikina Transport Terminal on Bayan Bayanan Ave., in Concepcion Uno where the old 164 Base was located near Meralco.

These projects are among the infrastructure facilities being built or have been constructed that would help transform the Marikina into a world-class city.




 

Improving the city’s infrastructure facilities will also attract more investors to put up businesses in Marikina, helping create more jobs and boost the tax revenue collections of the Local Government that will be used to fund the construction more public works. It will also help lure more tourists and visitors in the city that will translate into more business for restaurants, shopping malls, shoes and bags manufacturers, among others.
