Noveleta LCE poised to continue infra projects, reopen tourism in 2021

NOVELETA, Cavite, Dec 14 (PIA) – The local government of Noveleta will put to completion several of its infrastructure programs and projects for 2020 and hopes to revive the town’s economy thru reopening its tourism industry this coming year.

During his interview for the #LagingHandaNetworkBriefing News Tuesday, 8 December, Mayor Chua reported that some of its programs and projects under the UNLAD Noveleta 2020 were put on hold like the industrial zone groundbreaking and other infrastructure projects, adding that the town suffered much with the economy coming to a halt due to the lockdown.

Mayor Chua reported said that “Information dissemination is key to adapting to the New Normal especially with regards to COVID-19 quarantine protocols and counter measures.”

He also revealed during his interview with PCOO Assistant Secretary JV Arcena that he took care of the needs of his constituents during the height of the pandemic by returning his two years (2019 & 2020) worth of salaries to the LGU funds to purchase food for the relief distribution to the residents.

“This way we were able to save the LGUs calamity funds which we later used for our relief operations during the series of calamities brought by Typhoons ‘Rolly and Ulysses,” stated Chua.

On the tourism side, Mayor Chua proudly said that ”Noveleta was known as the Boracay of the 80’s” because of its beautiful beaches with the best sunset view. The local government made the rehabilitation and clean-up of the town’s shoreline as one of the its priority projects, hoping to revive the tourism industry with the opening of the beach resorts in the town like the Lido Beach Resort and the Long Beach Resort and Aqua Park.

These beach resorts are now open and now operating to 50% capacity pursuant to IATF guidelines.

Early next year, the Noveleta app will be launched to digitalize access to government services and payment of government fees keeping the public safe from the threat of the COVID-19 infection and mitigating its further spread.
