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:
- City Proper
- The entire stretch of Iznart Street;
- Valeria Extension (Barangay Nonoy);
- The entire stretch of Muelley Loney Street.
- District of Mandurriao
- R. Mapa Street;
- Q. Abeto Street;
- Guzman-Jesena Street.
- District of Lapaz
- Huervana Street;
- Burgos-Mabini Street;
- Rizal Street.
- 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.
