Barangay Pampang Is Angeles City’s Cleanest and Safest Barangay
Among 30 villages, Barangay Pampang headed by Chairperson Lydon De Luna bagged Angeles City’s “Gawad Parangal sa mga Pinakamalinis, Luntian, Ligtas at Kaaya-ayang Pamayanan — Pogi Ya Ing Barangay Ku” which was awarded in November 2023.
As the grand winner, Barangay Pampang received a dump truck worth Php 4 million and a Php300,000 cash incentive.
The barangay garnered an almost perfect score of 98.55% after being evaluated based on the following criteria: Urban Farm and Greening Program (35%); Solid Waste Management and General Cleanliness Program (35%); and Disaster Risk Reduction, Peace and Order, Health and Sanitation Program (30%).
Each of the city’s barangays were personally visited by the judges, namely environmentalist and veteran broadcaster Cecile Yumul; Edna Marissa Simbre of Department of Environment and Natural Resources—EMB Region III; Ladislao Puno III of Department of the Interior and Local Government – Angeles City; and Lisa Juco of Office of Civil Defense Region III with the assistance and supervision of Angeles City Economic Development and Investment Promotions Office (ACEDIPO) Head Irish Bonus-Llego and Chief Adviser IC Calaguas and Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel.
Mayor Carmelo G. Lazatin Jr. congratulated all the participants and acknowledged their efforts in this project “to promote sustainable programs for participatory governance, environmental management, peace and order, and disaster risk reduction management.”
“More than the contest, the essence of this is to build back better communities and encourage implementation of intensively and extensively proactive, participative, sound, and sustained programs, projects, and activities on socio-economic, environmental, and risk reduction management,” Lazatin said.
