CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga, Feb. 2 (PIA) -- Regional Development Council (RDC) of Central Luzon recently passed a resolution endorsing the conduct of a full blown feasibility study for the proposed P220-million integrated drainage system in Dinalupihan, Bataan.
In a statement, RDC 3 said, “The project is set to address perennial flooding in at least 18 of the 46 barangays in the town.”
The council added that “the drainage system shall likewise address flooding woes along the Layac area which is the entry and exit point of three provinces namely Bataan, Pampanga and Zambales.”
RDC 3 is the highest policy-making body in Central Luzon and serves as the counterpart of the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) Board at the subnational level.
It is the primary institution that coordinates and sets the direction of all economic and social development efforts in the region and serves as a forum where local efforts can be related and integrated with national development activities.
Council members include all governors, city mayors, municipal mayors of capital towns, presidents of municipal mayors’ league, regional directors of national government agencies and representatives from the private sector. (WLB/CLJD-PIA 3)
