Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong said he plans to pursue the construction of multi-level parking facilities in the Summer Capital.
The proposed project has been met with vehement opposition when it was pitched by former mayor Mauricio Domogan.
Magalong explained that the establishment of the parking facilities will help ease traffic congestion in Baguio.
He said the city government is looking at areas near or at Burnham Park for the project.
“I am asking ‘yung mga kumokontra. Huwag sarado ang isip. Iba na ang needs nga-yon kumpara sa needs noon,” Magalong said.
He also called on tourists to leave their cars and ride buses going to Baguio.
“‘Wag n’yo nang dalhin ang mga sasakyan n’yo. Ride buses,” Magalong said.
