Erring Panglao Resorts to Be Demolished?
« on: May 17, 2009, 08:01:21 PM »
By June Blanco
The Bohol Chronicle

The die is cast: the notices are already out.

And Panglao Mayor Benedicto Alcala is ready to demolish structures within the 20-meter salvage zone of the Alona Beach if the resort owners will not voluntarily do so by the end of the month.

Alcala said he had the notices sent by registered mail with return card to the owners of 12 resorts on the famed Alona Beach.

These resort owners – including two incumbent councilors – have been “a headache”, the mayor lamented.

Their sheer hardheadedness has caused difficulty for the town’s firetruck, garbage truck and septic tankers in passing through.

He has negotiated, cajoled, requested, reminded and directed these owners to demolish these structures, mostly seawalls, but to no avail.

During a recent meeting of resort owners at the JJ’s Seafoods Village in Tagbilaran City called by Gov. Erico Aumentado, however, Alcala sounded off his predicament to the body that included
foreign nationals who have chosen to reside in Panglao.

The participants pressed for the removal of the obstructions that prompted Alcala, as implementor of the law, to issue the notices.

Alcala also welcomed Aumentado’s offer of a bulldozer, if required, for the demolition of illegal structures set 15 days after the receipt of the notice – or around the end of this month.

The public clamor emboldened the mayor to act anew. To note, some resort owners had filed a mandamus case in an apparent move to pressure him into issuing business permits. But the mayor was adamant, saying that he had already given his word: no demolition of illegally constructed structures – no license.

The cases have dragged on for around a year now, he said, and have come to the point where the judge had requested for a status quo on the structures during their pendency.

Alcala said a temporary restraining order (TRO) would have been better as this expires after 60 days.

And the 15-day waiting period starts.

this issue has been around for quite some time. it is good to hear that someone seems serious in implementing what the law provides, and we certainly need officials who have political will to do what is right and lawful and legal. but actually doing it is quite another matter. we shall see in the next couple weeks if our local officials can really do what they intend to do, and prove to their constituents that they are worthy to be called leaders.

I am curious, I try to keep up with news of Bohol through the on line newspapers, and blogs however often a story is reported but there is no follow-up news. 

As an annual visitor to Bohol, and especially Alona Beach I was surprised on my last visit to see how property owners had set up barriers to pedestrians trying to walk along the beach and was wondering if any action has been taken to clear the obstructions as indicated by this article.
Today Honolulu, tomorrow Baclayon!

these barriers on the beach should be dismantled. beach resort owners are treating an area that is supposed to be communal as if they own it, which they don't. resort owners should be disciplined and government leaders should do it. that is what they have been elected to do: implement the law. if they can't, they should be discarded come election time.

here's my two cents worth of win-win solution: let them pay a fine (say P50,k each) and give them a two year phase out period aron maka bawi pod sila sa investment pagtukod sa structure.  after all the municipality is not blameless here kay og nag monitor pa sila pirme, walay illegal structure nga mobarug diha.

this comment has a point: if the LGU had done proper monitoring, these illegal structures should never have seen completion because it is their job to stop constructions that are illegal. however, i'm certain that the resort owners know the boundaries of their properties and i'm equally certain that they were aware that they were encroaching on public land. if they are truly law-abiding citizens, then they don't need to be monitored and instead do voluntary compliance. i believe what happened is a classic case of the filipino attitude of finding a way to go around the law (palusot) and see if they can get away with it. well, malas lang siguro sila this time. they should be game enough to comply now they it seems that they can't get away with it.

Please be reminded that the illegal structures was probably built also during the administration who go easy on this 20 meters salvage zone because he is also a resort owner who do same violation by encroaching and obstructing the beach area.

I am just saddened by the kind of development being implemented at Panglao beach area not just Alona beach but all other beaches in Panglao especially at Bohol Beach Club area where the burly guards shoo you away the moment you set foot on the beach in front of the resort which in fact it ( beach ) belongs to the public. There should be a Boracay like comprehensive development or much better in order to attract many local tourists and not just a previlege few.

I have to agree with you. In my place a sand dune beach and the oceans rippling shores belong to the state parks.

The resorts facing onto the beach of a state park are not allowed to claim any part of the beach front as their own neither are they allowed to bulid extentions from their current resorts out onto the beach.

Maybe because the government owns mineral rights on most of the lands in some places in the states. So salt is found on the beach it is a mineral there fore it belongs to the state and the people.

you're absolutely right my girl next door, commercialism should be " tamed for their greediness as what they say"  of course for the sake of the general public.
