Neg Or near completion
of forest land use plans

Negros Oriental is nearing completion of the Forest Land Use Plans for all its cities and municipalities, Provincial Environment and Natural Resources officer, Charlie Fabre, said.

He said the province is almost 100 percent complete in the submission of the FLUPs by the municipalities and cities. In fact, only Basay town, the farthest in the south, is finalizing its FLUP and the rest of other local government units in Negros Oriental are already done with theirs.

Negros Oriental has six cities and 19 municipalities. Only the capital city of Dumaguete and San Jose town do not have forest lands, Fabre said. Now that the LGUs have planned out the base use of forest lands in their areas, development will now focus on the watershed areas. moremoremore
