City gov’t seeks new site for Davao Sports Complex

According to this report by Rico Biliran, the proposed sports complex is not yet off the hook. We are probably the only big city with no modern sports complex. But at least there’s hope. (Fingers crossed)

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/10 June) – The City government of Davao is looking for a
new site where the proposed multi-million Davao City Sports Complex would be
erected, City Administrator Wendel Avisado said.

“We are searching for a new place now to situate the sports complex, “ said
Avisado after the awarding rites of the Run for P.E.A.C.E Region XI, a
nationwide simultaneous running event at the Rizal Park, yesterday.

The move came after the plan to put up the sports complex inside the
University of the Philippines-Mindanao campus in Barangay Oshiro, Mintal, some
15 kilometers southwest, was allegedly scrapped due to a land dispute between
the school and some residents of the place.

But Avisado said “we are not closing our door but for now we are tasked to
look for another place.”

In the agreement between the city government and UP, the state university is
to make available, from its reservation, 20 hectares for sports complex
project and provide professional input in the operation, according to the
official website of Davao City. Read Full story here.
