Coverage of Prohibition of On-road Parking Expanded

The City Council enacted Regulation Ordinance No. 2013-338, “An ordinance amending Article II of Regulation Ordinance No. 2009-216 (An ordinance re-establishing parking areas for all vehicles in the City of Iloilo).

Said ordinance was amended to include other major roads in the City of Iloilo that should be a “no on-road parking” zone, and these roads are, to wit:

  1. City Proper
    • The entire stretch of Iznart Street;
    • Valeria Extension (Barangay Nonoy);
    • The entire stretch of Muelley Loney Street.
  2. District of Mandurriao
    • R. Mapa Street;
    • Q. Abeto Street;
    • Guzman-Jesena Street.
  3. District of Lapaz
    • Huervana Street;
    • Burgos-Mabini Street;
    • Rizal Street.
  4. District of Jaro
    • Commission Civil Street;
    • McArthur Drive (Tabuc Suba to Buntatala)

The proponent, Councilor Plaridel C. Nava II, Chairman, Committee on Transportation, stated that the above-mentioned additional roads are situated in very significant areas where considerable number of vehicles are usually passing through, thus the need to prohibit on-road parking.

This ordinance was passed during the City Council’s regular session last August 27, 2013, with Councilor Nielex C. Tupas, acting as the Temporary Presiding Officer.
