The provincial government of Aklan is prepared to develop the Lambingan Beach. This is situated in the shoreline boundary of barangay Pook and Andagao in Kalibo as a possible alternate tourists attraction in the capital town.
This project appeared clear for implementation after the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Aklan has authorized, through Resolution No. 2010-094, Gov. Carlito S. Marquez to enter into a Memorandum of Agreement with the Sacred Heart of Jesus Prime Holdings, Inc. and Blue Chip Builders, Inc. for both parties to introduce infrastructure facilities aimed at developing the Lambingan Beach.
Earlier, Marquez has entered into a Memo-randum of Understanding with the Sacred Heart of Jesus Prime Holdings, Inc. and Blue Chip Builders, Inc. which committed them-selves to donate road right of way within their property from barangay Pook to Lambingan Beach and an additional 5,000 square meters near the beach area to be used by the province for the construction of tourism facilities therein.
The LGU Aklan commits itself to replace the temporary bridge by constructing a concrete bridge connecting Lambingan beach and to erect structures like a jetty port, a Provincial Tourism Office, and a showroom of Aklan products to promote the tourism potentials of Aklan particularly Kalibo.
The province is committed to shoulder the cost of transferring the donated properties to the name of the provincial government while the donors must be consulted on whatever project or develop-ment to be introduced in the donated properties.
The resolution also authorized Gov. Marquez to accept the donations.
Local tourists frequented Lambingan Beach in the past. This development will revive its luster once facilities are established. /MP
