SAGADA, Mountain Province -- Four barangay resolutions on  improvement of existing or opening of farm to market roads here to increase  income of  rural households and boost tourism were endorsed by the provincial peace and order council here in a meeting in the capital town of Bontoc Wednesday.
Proposed for funding by Sagada Mayor James Pooten for endorsement to the regional peace and order council and eventually to President Duterte are four  FMRs  worth P50 million each  at southern Ankileng, Suyo, Balugan and northern Bangaan.
Southern areas of this tourist town produce beans, pepper, taro, bananas and rice.
Pongas Falls and rice terraces along the way are tourist come-ons of southern barangays.
The Balangagan to Taccong FMR at Suyo is where Balangagan Cave is located.   
During Saturdays, most market vendors selling vegetables at the town center come from Ankileng and nearby Balugan.
Once fully constructed, the Ankileng, Mabisil to Pakil FMR would make it easier for farmers to transport their crops to the market.
This would also be the case in Patay- Danum- Mobo- Nadatngan- Bangaan Tabbak FMR at the northern side of town.

The Tap-ew–Balintaugan -Bagnen FMR at southern Balugan is where the historic Spanish trail is located leading towards Balintaugan.
