Malay Mayor Ciceron Cawaling on Wednesday officially signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with Urban Planner Arch. Felino Palafox.
Jimmy Maming, newly designated information officer of Cawaling, said the MOA is meant for the seven-month formulation of the Master Development Plan for this island.
“The plan includes not only the development of Boracay, but may expand to the whole of Malay, as well. The plan includes formulation for architectural development and tourism,” Maming said.
“The Cawaling administration is also bent on including the environmental sustainability of this resort island,” he said.
The plan to ink agreement with Palafox started last year.
With the MOA, the local government of Malay is hoping to lure tourists and, at the same time, enhance both environmental and tourism sustainability.
Palafox has been credited for the planning of more than 16 billion square meters of land and the design and architecture of more than 12 million sq m of building floor area in 38 countries.
