The Pacific Coast Cities Project is a master planned alternative to the city of Metro Manila. It is a grand design that will provide the solution to the multi-level problems that seem to beset Metro Manila residents and government officials for the past 50 years. But unlike other marvelous plans, this one proposes in very concrete and practicable terms what could be done and should be done.
- It is a modern urban center in a resort-quality environment
- Encompasses parallel programs for rural development, agriculture, reforestation, and eco-tourism.
- An International deep-water port and airport
- A new growth center just 80 kms away from Metro Manila.
This proposed project will include 8 different areas, or cities, that will organize the different areas of livelihood. These include
A City For Learning
The University City will be a master-planned community for world-renowned schools and educational institutions, both locally and internationally, with access to the latest information and technology.
Here, universal education will make it affordable for all, with help from educational assistance programs such as the government’s study-now pay-later program.
This City of Learning will have dedicated Research and Development sites attached to each campus where professors and scientists will have access to a living laboratory to further develop and improve the state of our technology,
An International Seaport
A major anchor of the Pacific Coast Cities is the development of the Dingalan Bay seaport. This is projected as the Port City.
The port is a potential national flagship project that will transform the Philippines from a mere trade and consumer goods to a transshipment center, rivaling the world ports destination of Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
At present the Philippines does not have an international port facing the Pacific Ocean because there is little cargo to ship to and from the Pacific Coast and the rest of Luzon.
The Workers City
In the Workers City, the sources of primary livelihood are the industrial estates nearby to service modern agro-based industries and other related light industries, including the processing of agricultural outputs.
What is interesting in the Workers City is that future workers must undergo skills training and formation of values at the "processing” or training center.
Values of discipline and good work ethics shall be impressed on them.
City of Agriculture and Industry
The city for Agriculture and Industry provide a master-planned City of Industry dedicated to the establishment of various agricultural fields and and factories.
This city will be subdivided into different sectors for agriculture, allowing for future growth and diversity to support all of the country's food supply needs and creating employment opportunities for 3.6 Million people within the next 25 years.
The industrial sector for this city will be created to support the many logistical needs of the agriculture sector, such as the processing, packing, and logistical requirements for food preparation and storage.
A City for Olympic and International Sports Events
Since the Pacific Coast City is located on relatively flat land, adjacent to the bay and facing a major river, the Olympic City is suited to host large sporting and water sports related events as well as serve as an ideal venue for training.
This area will be zoned for mixed use development that is centered on sports, leisure and active recreation.
A Center for Government Affairs
The New Pacific Coast Cities Project includes a master-planned Government Center that would allow people to have complete access to the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government, thereby making governance more efficient by bringing the government closer to the people.
Included in the Government Center will be an Embassy Row where Embassies of all nations can be located in an orderly and beautiful setting, serving the needs of their respective subjects and constituents.
A Relaxing and Fun Resort Community
As a resort community, the Pacific Coast Resort City offers unparalleled ocean views which sharpen one’s fascination with the emerald blue seas and sparkling stretches of sand.
A prime ocean front conjures majestic dreams and soothes life’s bruises. The ensuing exhilarating experience is definitely a come-on that money cannot buy.
Future artists, scientists, inventors, cultural workers will be far easier to come by since they can rest their bodies and spirits here.
Golf enthusiasts will also be inspired playing on championship golf courses while tourists/guests can luxuriate in well-appointed hotels and marinas.
A City for Prayer and Spirituality
Of course, after all the physical needs are met in the New Pacific Coast City, the earthly body seeks spiritual renewal and fulfillment. In the pristine beauty of the Sierra Madres will rise an Ecumenical Center – a place of communion for all faiths congregating together to pray and worship one Universal God.
