Cong. Irvin M. Alcala made sure that agriculture in his beloved 2nd district stays top notch. Manggalang Tulo-Tulo in Sariaya receives a 315-meter Farm-to-Market road in the representative’s cooperation with the Department of Agriculture. The funding came from the DA in their program to improve agro-development in the province and on a larger note, the region.
The FMR was officially opened and inaugurated by the congressman last April 11, 2012.
Overseeing the construction of the FMR is the District Engineer’s Office of the DPWH. Cong. Alcala, DA and the DPWH have been partners in making the lives of residents in the 2nd district. The farm-to-market road costs 2.5 million pesos in appropriation funds.
Different agro-industries are found in Quezon and the second district has spread its roots. Coconut plantations, mills and farms are a welcome sight to tourists and as well as entrepreneurs. Market opportunities continue to grow and that’s why logistics solutions are also equally important as cultivation and etc.
Faster roads that lead to more market opportunities expose the local farmer to more options in selling his goods and services. Food produce are well off in smoother roads since they will still arrive fresh at the local markets. Consumers will also enjoy their fresh veggies and fruits as soon as they hit the stands.
Development need not be costly when it comes to projects. Smart solutions often prove to have more impact on the lives of people rather than unfinished or rushed projects. With a more complex and smarter infrastructure networks around the district, the representative is nearing his goal in making a model district for the entire province to emulate.
There have been past successes in leading the district to new heights. But this young visionary is taking pro-active steps in ensuring the dynamic growth of his district. He proves that success does not necessarily have a plateau once you decide to climb further and view things from higher grounds.
