Lingayen, Pangasinan— For Gov. Ramon V. Guico III and Vice Gov. Mark Ronald DG Lambino, citizen engagement and respect for government processes are vital in the implementation of projects and programs.

In line with this, a public consultation on the redevelopment of the Capitol Complex was conducted on Nov. 21 at the Pangasinan Training and Development Center 1 (PTDC 1) here.

The undertaking was spearheaded by the provincial government in collaboration with DENR, DPWH, the FADZ+Casanova Design Team, residents, and officials of Brgy. Libsong West and Poblacion.

Discussed during the consultation were the project’s background, plans, and significance to the community.

Through an open forum, concerned citizens were given the opportunity to clarify and raise their concerns relative to the proposed project.

In his message, VG Lambino mentioned that part of the master plan for the Capitol Complex will be the construction of a Capitol Plaza where all offices of the provincial government will be housed for accessible and easier transactions.

Lambino also assured that the provincial government is not only focused on infrastructure projects but also on social services.

On the same note, the vice governor assured that Gov. Guico wants proper planning, proper use of resources and people’s money, excellent government services, and the redevelopment of the Capitol.
