Stan Taylor and Michael Cooke of the City of Windsor, Ontario, Canada are once again in Olongapo to conduct studies, inspections and evaluation on the ongoing Capacity Building Partnership between the City of Windsor and Olongapo City. This is their fifth (5th) visit in the city.

This partnership is the second between Windsor and Olongapo City. The first partnership resulted in the improvement of Olongapo City’s waste management system, particularly disposa.

The current partnership aims to strengthen the economic well-being of Olongapo City through improvements on land use management,

It is expected that through this partnership, there will be an increase in the capacity of city staff to monitor development activity in the city and assess the potential problems in the watershed areas before they become hazardous.

Taylor and Cooke will be conducting studies, inspections and evaluations until the 25th of July.

It can be recalled that through the initiative of Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr., improvements are now being made in the land management of the city. Recently, the city has received a grant from Australian Aid (AusAid) to implement the Unified Land Information System that will organize data about the city’s land administration management.

Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr. and Canadian flood control experts Stan Taylor and Michael Cooke at Olongapo City Hall on July 14, 2008. Taylor and Cooke are back in the city to continue their study on the city’s land use and watershed management as part of Olongapo’s sisterhood pact with the City of Windsor, Canada.
