And now the fun will start. Maybe by the time its all over there will be enough international travel from Dumaguete to support it, well maybe one airline, once a week.
Does anyone have the exact planned location of the new airport?
This whole exercise is about identifying the land owners on someone elses's money so politicians can purchase the property and dig up dirt like failure to pay land tax etc so they have some leverage.. I don't like to be negative but that's is the way things work here. If politico's can't make money out of it, it will not happen.....
300 million pesos to buy the land for an airport? I think this money will all be used up in the "due diligence" and some public officials will go away richer.
The article says "construction in the villages of Combado and Isugan and adjacent areas".
The exact area is on the wall in the municiple pat.
RE google maps; it looks to me that the new airport runway will be running sea to mountain north of the bacong/valencia road if... the airport is to be located in Combado and Isugan. t'would be nice if someone on that end of town would go into the municiple pat and take a picture of the map and post it here. <wink ;^)
The southern municipality of Bacong, Negros Oriental is determining the number and areas of property owners who will be affected by the proposed new airport project of the government.
Initially, the government allocated PHP300 million for the acquisition of land for the airport to include right of way, among others. The airport project will require at least 170 to 180 hectares of land and is eyed for construction in the villages of Combado and Isugan and adjacent areas, he added.
Volunteer assistance is offered by local businessmen who are members of the NegOr Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Real Estate brokers are now on the move at land pricings. They usually get 5% of the total purchase price of real estate.
Economists admit it’s a long way to go, even years. It took Panglao 18 years to realize the international airport which was inaugurated last year.
Right now, there is no definite area defined within the 180-hectare parameter of the proposed airport. Second, right of way negotiations then expropriation proceedings will take years. Many times, the budget will be reverted to the national coffers due to non-realization. Usually unused budgets will be reduced annually.
I doubt any of us will see a new airport here in our lifetimes.
Yeah, I don't wanna go there!
