Lady solon urges House to look into Subic resort deal

A lady lawmaker is urging the House of Representatives to look into a deal allegedly favoring a leisure resort designed by urban planner Felino Palafox and entered into by former Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Chairman Felicito Payumo.

In her privilege speech this week, Buhay Party-List Rep. Ma. Carissa Coscolluela said Payumo granted Moonbay Marina in 2002 a lease rate of R2.75 per square meter per month for a period of 50 years and renewable for another 25 years.

Coscolluela said the lease rate approved by Payumo to Moonbay Marina was far lower compared to adjacent properties which were rented out in foreign denomination or .00 per square meter back then.

"To me, that is a transaction disadvantageous to our government," Coscolluela emphasized. TEMPO.COM

Do we understand it correctly that it was the property developer and not TLMR who made this sewer system? That is interesting since it was Palafox (the self proclaimed environmental champion) whom property developer Moonbay Marina commisioned to design this area.

The question now is.... if he really cares for the environment... how come his project dumps sewer into SubicBay?

This project to me puts his credibility in question...


This is now a serious health and environment issue that must be addressed right away. TLMR helps in beach clean up in its surrounding area on its own and are strong advocate for clean and healthy environment

The Lighthouse Marina Resort (TLRM) takes this issue with grave concern and has raised it with the developer and proper authorities. By the way, this is not supposed to be a sewer system and was installed by the property developer. TLMR is a lessee in the area and is not ina ny way connected into the drainage system. Accordingly it is supposed to be a storm drain. TLMR opposes in the first place the installation of the drainage into the beach and the bay albeit supposed to drain only rainwater.

  • That issue is actually very minor if it will be compared to the waste water being dumped thru a sewer outpole right into the adjacent Alava Pier. I'm sure SBMA management knows that all waste water from the Old Naval Station areas is dumped directly into the sea, without any necessary treatment. Now, just imagine the volume of waste water from the Hotel building compared against the whole Old Naval Station areas?

  • From your point of view it may be minor, but what the article is trying to say is that palafox, while claiming to be an environmental hero... is himself guilty of damaging the environment... gets mo???
