HIGHLIGHTS OF THE 2000 -    2004 MEDIUM TERM DEVELOPMENT PLAN OF THE CITY OF MUNTINLUPA 


INTRODUCTION

1999 marks the end of what has been the most dynamic century in world history. Never has there been an era comparable to the 20th Century in terms of the apotheosis of man in his efforts to conquer the world as manifested by the expeditious developments characterizing it.

In a micro perspective, such development holds true for the City of Muntinlupa. Upon the declaration of its independence that created the Municipality of Muntinlupa in 1917, many events have marked the locality and brought it to its current level of existence. Muntinlupa is now regarded as one of the fastest growing urban centers in the country. The transformation of Muntinlupa from a Municipality to a First Class City in 1995 is reflective of the rapid development besetting the city. As we enter into the new millennium, the City Government of Muntinlupa is prepared to face the challenges with the same zeal and dynamism that has led them to becoming the Premiere Emerald City of the 21st Century.

The 2000 - 2004 Medium Term City Development Plan (MTCDP) of the City of Muntinlupa shall be the blue print in setting the direction of its development. In its effort to attain and sustain the status of being the Premiere City, the City shall give primary emphasis on providing for the basic services of its constituents anchoring development on the tenets of providing a better life to the people.  This brochure shall serve as an outline of the priority programs and projects of the City for the next five years. It contains the sectoral goals and objectives which are reflective of the City's Mission and Vision and the dynamism and heart of the City's incumbent mayor Atty. Jaime R. Fresnedi.

VISION

"We envision Muntinlupa as a well-planned premier city of the 21st century, in perfect harmony with nature, it's people with a sense of pride and civic-mindedness, highly educated and competent, enjoying a world class quality of life with an enlightened and responsive community leadership drawing inspiration and guidance from God."

The MTCDP promulgates the overarching objective of making the City Government customer-friendly, attained through a multi-stakeholder approach involving a dynamic and world-class business sector, a vigilant and responsible civil society and an efficient and less expensive government.  The success of this partnership shall be measured by its achievement in uplifting the quality of life of the constituents, reducing poverty, generating productive employment and giving priority to the needs of the poor.

In line with this overarching vision, the City Government’s policies shall be directed towards the following priority areas of action:

  1. Delivering basic social development services in health and nutrition, education and training, housing and social welfare, and implementing human capital investment programs;
  2. Raising productivity and enhancing competitiveness of industry and services towards sustaining growth in output and employment;
  3. Strengthening the partnership between national and local government and among other local governments, the business community, and the civil society; and
  4. Maintaining peace and order in the City.

MISSION

Towards this end, Muntinlupa shall pursue an integrated and sustainable development strategy, anchored on responsible stewardship, democratic institutions, and efficient and effective management that will provide world-class infrastructure and support services in order to:

1)  Promote a broad economic base

            The harnessing of the comparative advantages of the City in terms of its potential is necessary in achieving             growth.  The government shall continue to attract private sector to flourish as the true engine of growth.              Foreign capital and technology shall also be encouraged to augment domestic resources and improve the                 City's economic base;

(2) Create a business-friendly environment which will attract environment-friendly business

            The establishment of competitive, one-stop, career-development centers will offer skills assessment,                       Information on jobs and business opportunities, and access to education and training as well as market             demands and opportunities.  The City Government shall continue market-oriented policies that will motivate             investments.

            People's participation in the development process will institutionalize consensus-building mechanisms and             keeping faith with democratic processes. The City Government shall encourage partnerships to improve                 public service. Public hearings and consultations will always be a policy in eliciting ideas and reactions from             the people on various issues.

(4) Provide quality social services

            Access to basic services and development opportunities shall be the main concern of the City Government             in giving preferential attention to vulnerable groups.  Focus will be given to primary basic services, such as             basic education, basic health care and immunization, which have greater impact on alleviating the plight of                 the urban poor.

(5) Ensure equity in the distribution of goods and services

            Enhancing government responsiveness to the poor by ensuring that policies on poverty alleviation are                     supported by specific programs and projects is the primary consideration of the City Government.  Anent                 to this, there is a need to adopt and enforce standards of efficiency and reliability in the distribution of the                 fruits of development.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

In pursuit of its vision and mission, the City Government shall be guided by the following principles:

EQUITY - All policies, strategies, programs, and projects must improve the quality of life of the City constituents, particularly the poor, and must lead to a more equitable distribution of income, wealth and opportunities.  As development progresses, the various stakeholders of society - government, business, and civil society - will share the burden of adjustments.

EFFECTIVENESS  - The City Government shall focus on doing what it does best and let go of activities that it should not be doing.  It shall seek to deliver intended results with the least unintended consequences.  Under an effective leadership,  the Government shall steer the City by providing a clear and coherent policy framework.  In activities it will undertake, it will be decisive and consistent.

EFFICIENCYThis will be achieved through adherence to market competition and continued integration with the national and global economics.   Economic services shall be delivered by the agents that have comparative advantage and which can deliver them at the least cost to society.  The City Government shall adhere to fiscal discipline and shall follow the principle of cost recovery in the provision of government services.

ACCOUNTIBILITY AND TRANSPARENCYDecision-making by the Government shall be subject to full public disclosure at every stage in order to restore and maintain public confidence in the honesty of their leaders and the integrity of public policies and government processes. Moreover, the government shall hold itself accountable to the people for its actions and operations.

 

 SPATIAL DEVELOPMENT FRAMEWORK

INTRODUCTION

Among the 17 Cities and Municipalities that comprise Metropolitan Manila, the City of Muntinlupa has been the forefront of development planning. Reflective of this is the fact that Muntinlupa was the first LGU in the National Capital Region to have an approved Comprehensive Land Use Plan (CLUP) and Zoning Ordinance.  These documents were approved in 1993.

Since then however, numerous developments and changes have marked significant changes in the present character of the city of Muntinlupa.    Similar changes are likewise observed in the land use pattern of the City. Though it generally adheres to the CLUP of 1993, the proportions of land utilization has dramatically changed, brought about by the rapid urbanization of settlements which in turn is brought by rapid population growth in the locality. There is thus a need to update the CLUP and the zoning ordinance to make it more proactive to the present scenario besetting the City.

 In this document, spatial development refers to the evolution of a system of areas with potential linkages for the following purposes: (a) to facilitate the flow and exchange of goods, information and services;  (b) to rationalize the distribution of population; (c) to promote sound environmental management; and (d) to forge unity and cohesion among the barangays.

SPATIAL PROFILE

In spatial development planning, parts of the whole are assessed with respect to the over-all contributions of the sector to the total development of the City. Hence, the role played by the various barangays in the total development of the City is primary to the achievement of the goal of becoming the Premiere City of the 21st Century.

Each barangay plays a distinctive role in development brought about by its strategic location and features and the current trends in land use.

Barangay Tunasan -  being the southern-most area of the City,  links the locality to the Province of Laguna.  It is home for numerous residential establishments. Sixty five percent of the total land area of the barangay is used for residential purposes. The remaining is a mixed use and some are for industrial activities. Attempts to change the land use from residential to industrial (based on current activity) has been met with much opposition from the local residents.  Preference for residential land use has been advocated so as to safeguard the development of the locality.

Barangay Poblacion - is host to the country's National Bilibid Prisons. The NBP alone comprises 84.15 percent of the land in this barangay. As such it is currently considered an institutional zone. However, much speculation has cropped up as to the development of the area. In anticipation of the impending development, the City of Muntinlupa has proposed a Master Development Plan for the NBP area. The Plan proposes to contain the commercial area of District I, comparable in development to that of the Alabang area in District II. The barangay is mostly zoned for residential use,  although few medium to low scale commercial activities can be noted along  the national road and some parts of the barangay where people converge.

Barangay Putatan - is home to the most number of subdivisions and sitios. It is largely  residential in use. Putatan comprises 14.44 percent of the total land area of the City. It has been proposed in the past that the barangay be divided into four smaller localities instead of just one. This proposal was brought about by the need to effectively target public service and utilities to the area's residents.

 Barangay Bayanan - is another area classified mainly as residential. Like most of the barangays in District I, commercial activities/zones line the barangay area along the national road spanning the whole length of the district until Alabang.

Barangay Alabang - is the most  commercialized barangay in the City of Muntinlupa. With Filinvest Corporate City as well as the close proximity of the Alabang Commercial Center and Madrigal Park, it is projected to be the backbone of the City's economic development. It is projected to fuel the City's development making it the Premiere City of the 21st Century.  These developments have transformed this once fishing and agricultural village into a highly urbanized modern area characterized by commercial activities with dwindling residential use. At present, even the residential portion of the barangay along the old provincial road (Aplaya Rd.) in now lined with commercial establishments, reflecting the fast paced commercialization being experienced by the locality.

Barangay Cupang - is dubbed as the "Most Blessed Barangay in the City of Muntinlupa."   The development activities that have occurred in this locality are enough to warrant this reputation. From frugal activities such as fishing and farming, the barangay is now the proud host to some 50 major industries of the City not to mention 11 first class subdivisions. Land use is mainly industrial with sporadic residential zones.

Barangay Buli - is the smallest barangay in terms of land area. However, it is characterized by a mixed land use of industrial and residential, owing to the spillover from Barangays Cupang and Sucat.

Barangay Sucat - is home to the 600-megawatt power plant of the National Power Corporation. There are about 27 major industries located in the locality, five large subdivisions, and vast open spaces targeted to carry the commercial activities which is expected to spill over from Barangay Alabang.

OVER ALL DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY

Spatial development shall be pursued based on a strategy of effective networking of the nine (9) barangays.  This shall be accompanied by establishing linkages and optimal use of resources.

SPATIAL DEVELOPMENT ROLES

Despite the varying strategic roles being played by the Barangays, the City of Muntinlupa  aims to move forward  into the new millennium on the basis of a common vision of the future.  This is the vision anchored on becoming a Premier City by the next century.

For practical development planning and management purposes, the City of  Muntinlupa shall be divided into two districts  - each of which have spatial factors favorable to the needs of rational and sustainable growth.    When planned within an integrated development area approach,  Muntinlupa City would be able to maximize its potentials both as a premier center of commerce and industry as it retains its "provincial" ambiance.

With its strategic location as the gateway to the CALABARZON subregion capturing most of its population, Muntinlupa shall emerge as the center for finance, trade, commerce and industry in the southern part  of Metro Manila to the CALABARZON area.

District I comprises Barangays Tunasan, Poblacion, Putatan, and Bayanan which shall remain as residential areas,   Barangay Poblacion emerging qs its center of commerce and trade.

District II comprises Barangays Alabang, Cupang, Buli, Sucat and Ayala Alabang shall serve as components of an industrial and commercial network with Alabang as the primary growth center.
