ARAYAT, Pampanga – The mayor of this town has sought the lifting of the declaration of a permanent danger zone in Barangay San Juan Bano.
In a forum with local journalists, Arayat Mayor Bon Alejandrino said many businessmen deferred plans to invest in the village after it was declared a permanent danger zone.
Provincial disaster management officials declared Barangay San Juan Bano a permanent danger zone after a landslide occurred during Typhoon Ondoy in 2009.
Alejandrino said the affected families had returned to their homes after the municipal government addressed concerns regarding landslides in the area. “These families know for sure there is no more threat,” he said.
Barangay San Juan Bano is where the Arayat National Park, a known tourist destination, is located.
