Capitol to preserve
NOPJ landmarks


The site of the defunct Negros Occidental Provincial jail owned by the provincial government is up for lease but historical landmarks at the facility will be preserved, Jose Ma. Valencia, chief of staff of Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr.,  said yesterday.

He cited the jail arch, and bricks that date back to 1889.

The governor has ordered the preservation of these materials, Valencia said.

Valencia said he will recommend to the governor that the proposal of 888 Chinatown Square to lease the property to construct a three-storey structure, with the third floorserving as a parking area that can accommodate about 250 vehicles, be published.

The publication will trigger a public bidding, he added.

The Sangguniang Panlalawigan this week granted the governor authority to decide what to do with the property.*CPG
