NAGA CITY — Mayor Nelson Legacion on Monday, Feb. 22, has called on business owners here to include in their list of corporate social responsibility projects the beautification and development of areas near their workplaces.

Legacion encouraged businessmen to include the easement or the road right of way near their respective establishments in the beautification and cleanliness drive. “Let’s try to do it beyond the confines of our properties,” he said.

The idea was inspired by the proposal manifested by the Naga Imperial Crematory and Columbary (NICC) to beautify and conduct regular clean up along the muddy roadsides, sidewalks, and vacant lots fronting the business establishment in Barangay Balatas, here.

“The idea is consistent with the LGU’s vision of creating a self-reliant and caring city,” said the mayor who gave his assent to the NICC’s request in a memorandum of agreement made and entered into by and between the business establishment and the LGU Naga.

The initiative of NICC is endorsed and encouraged by Punong Barangay Pedro San Juan of Barangay Balatas because such project supports the barangay’s objective for sanitation and environment protection.

The private company will also conduct activities that will lead to the reduction of the urban blight there, aside from keeping the area waste and mud free.

“The NICC is willing to shoulder the cost of such development including the landscaping,” assured Philip Imperial, NCCI president.

It is indicated in the agreement that once the project is completed, the NICC will maintain all the improvements that have been undertaken in the area including the management of the developed site to sustain its cleanliness and orderliness.

However, prompt and voluntary surrender of the place by NICC to the city government shall be required once it is needed for public works and other similar purposes.

The NICC, whose columbary product was formally launched on December 18, last year, organizes a community project that will develop and beautify a public domain as part of its corporate social responsibility.
