Per recommendation of the City Administrator’s Office and the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, temporary parking of vehicles at La Purisima and Nuñez Streets will be authorized on March 19 for the duration of the Ateneo de Zamboanga University commencement exercises.

This, based on Executive Order  167 issued by Mayor Beng Climaco last March 8 mainly to prevent traffic congestion in the area, considered as major thoroughfares in the city, during the occasion.

Based on the EO, temporary one side (Westside) parallel parking of vehicles is authorized at La Purisima and Nuñez Streets from their junctions with Gov. Alvarez up to their junctions with Campaner St. respectively for the duration of the university’s commencement exercises on Saturday, March 19 from 12pm to 9pm.

Specifically, Westside single parallel parking will be allowed in La Purisima St. from its junction with Gov. Alvarez to its junction with Campaner St. and in Nuñez St. with its junction Gov. Alvarez from its junction with P. Rodriguez St.

The commencement exercises of the ADZU on March 19 will involve undergraduate and graduate units. The occasion is expected to draw a large number of parents, visitors and guests with motor vehicles that will converge at the same venue causing traffic congestion in the area.

To properly address the situation, ADZU Security Chief Francis Jay Llenado requested the city government’s permission to park at La Purisima and Nunez streets to properly address the situation. OIC City Administrator and CDRRMO head Elmer Apolinario favourably endorsed and recommended approval of the request. — Sheila Covarrubias
