The Roxas City Council has approved a resolution allowing Sy-led mall developer SM Prime Holdings Inc. (SMPHI) to cut tress within its site along Roxas Boulevard in Barangay Baybay, Roxas City, Capiz.
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) recently issued an environmental certificate compliance (ECC) to the first SM mall in the province.
City Councilor Cesar Yap emphasized that under the resolution, SMPHI is required to plant new trees as replacement for every tree to be uprooted.
Engineer Tino S. Solidum, SM City project engineer, said that the management agreed with the requirement.
City Mayor Angel Alan Celino and the City Council welcomed the new investor in the city.IMT
