TO ALL CONCERNED STAKEHOLDERS
FROM ESTHER M PACHECO
ON KATIPUNAN FOOTBRIDGE TO RISE SOON!
Great news in this Easter season!
This past Monday, representatives from sectors concerned with our beloved
long-awaited Katipunan Footbrdige were asked to attend a meeting with
Representatives from Miriam College, the Ateneo, Loyola Heights Homeowner
Associations, and Barangay Chair Noguera met with City Engineer Cabungcal
Mayor Belmonte. Essentially we were asked WHERE EXACTLY we wanted the bridge
to be built. We all agreed it should go up midway between Ateneo's Gate 3
Miriam College's Gate. In other words, one end would land right on the
Barangay's parking lot, and the other straight across onto Ateneo's
We were told that our decision was the final step needed to put up the
SO, NOW THE FOOTBRIDGE WILL FINALLY BE BUILT. ALLELUIA! But we shall
once we see that bridge standing there, right?
Meantime, just to push the project some more, I sent a follow-up email to
Belmonte (see below).
If we do not see that bridge going up in May, please all help in badgering
City Hall. I post relevant call numbers:

HERE, THE EMAIL TO MAYOR BELMONTE:
26 April 2006
Dear Mayor Belmonte:
In the name of the stakeholders, whose representatives met with you and
City Engineer Cabungcal last Monday, let me thank you for calling us to
where exactly we want the footbridge to be built.
Since this final decision has been made, your office made us understand that
the bridge would go up any time now. May we expect construction to start no
later than the first week of May?
PAGASA has had bulletins published in the newspapers warning us all to
the La Nina phenomenon to manifest itself during the summer months. May we
therefore ask that building of the bridge begin in earnest,
the heavy rains with its floods take over our city?
We thank you, Mayor Belmonte, for your positive response to this letter. May
ask that a copy of this letter be sent to Engineer Cabungcal--as a record of
our gratitude for past and forthcoming quick action by City Hall.
With the best of wishes in this Easter season,
Esther M Pacheco
