1.1 PHYSICAL STRATEGY FOR URBAN GROWTH

1.1.1 REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT FRAMEWORK POLICIES AND VISIONS.
The Physical Development Framework Plan for Metropolitan Manila for period of 1996 to 20161 marks the current condition of urban areas in Metropolitan Manila along with recommended policy direction for its development: 1. The need to maximize physical infrastructure through redevelopment and alternative land use activities, on built-up areas where infrastructure services are under-utilized. The need to defer further development of areas where additional land using activity results to negative or adverse effects, and physical development relative to population density already reaches the threshold level. Requirement for special types of development for ecologically sensitive areas that would ensure sustainability and prevent unnecessary loss of life and property due to disasters and adverse effects of pollution. The need to plan and regulate land development towards Metro Manila’s outer core to ensure that the carrying capacities of resources therein are respected.

Urban growth in Caloocan City is plainly an integral fraction of the total regional development in Metropolitan Manila. Location of various land using activities and intensity of urban problems are basic results of complex socio-economic growth trends and public and private sector decisions transpiring not only within few cities and Municipalities, but in the whole entire region. However, whatever is the direction of urban expansion, various developments taking place in the City create manifold social and environmental illnesses that need to be immediately addressed in the context of regional concerns and challenges. Similarly, to achieve the long-term vision of the City Executive, that is the eradication of dire poverty, unemployment, and crime, the need to employ development planning and growth management approaches is foremost on the agenda of local governance. One of the measures essential in curving or minimizing negative environmental and social impacts of urban development is the establishment of a physical framework plan through certain growth strategies. Such requirement also becomes vital to rationalize urban growth in long-term period. As a whole, the objective of physical growth strategy in Caloocan City is to manage development and land using activities towards realizing a more efficient land use pattern for the City and the greater Metro Manila area. The approach specifically hopes to achieve the following: q Minimize travel time and distances between dwelling and working areas as well as between production and supply points of urban goods and services. q Implore among all sectors the protection, conservation, and enhancement of the urban environment. q Promote a more cost-effective provision of public infrastructure and facilities, which subsequently optimizes the use of resources for local development.

The Vision for Metro Manila physical development concentrates on three basic concepts. First concept is the basic livability and environmental requirements of a metropolis. The second consideration is the global role of Metropolitan Manila in Asia-Pacific region. Last concern is the influence of Metropolitan Manila to the growth polygon in Luzon Island. Along the cited major areas, the overall vision in Metro Manila’s development is well articulated in the Regional Development Plan which is described as follows:
“Metropolitan Manila will become a humane world-class metropolis renowned for its livability, economic vitality and socio-cultural exuberance. It will be the center of a growth polygon which will influence the creation of socioeconomic opportunities for areas beyond metropolitan boundaries.”2

1.1.1.1

SPECIAL DEVELOPMENT POLICY ZONES IN CALOOCAN CITY

The Physical Framework Plan for Metropolitan Manila utilizes the strategy of development management according to a selective contained growth pattern approach, and through establishing specific policy zones arising from earlier identified constraints and potentials. The preferred pattern of Metropolitan development are derived from following policy objectives: 1. Balancing development concentration in highly congested areas lacking in development, that also addresses problem of land availability Development promotion in underdeveloped areas that will lessen attraction of over concentration in existing built-up areas. Deter physical deterioration of highly congested urban areas, which environmental condition impedes growth of economic opportunities. Ensure the establishment of appropriate infrastructure facilities, community amenities and basic services in all urban development activities. Secure sustainable urban development particularly in environmentally critical areas. Promote interregional expansion of development activities within the growth polygon, in conformity with existing plans of adjacent regions.

Miguel St. and Samson Road) or the whole Second Congressional District. The identified zone area lies within envelope of EDSA (C4 Road), interpreted as the new urban core of Metropolitan Manila. The RDA covers old districts of Grace Park (East and West), Calaanan (East and West), Barrio Rodriguez, Barrio Pacita, Barrio Galino, Bagong Silang, Barrio San Jose, Marulas, Maypajo, Sampalukan, DagatDagatan Development Project, Sampalukan, and Poblacion. (see Map 1) Generally, RDA lies within a major urban center or the inner core itself where expansion of commercial and industrial activities and other high intensity uses needs more restraint, within certain extent. The carrying capacity of existing land supply, drainage system and road network system is exceeded by current requirements brought about by ever increasing day time and night time population, therefore limiting sufficient delivery of basic services. Within the RDA zone of Caloocan City, deterioration of environmental and structural quality of communities is apparent. The aesthetic condition of urban landscape within RDA is also antiquated resulting to incompatibility of structures to the area’s current and future needs and opportunities. The suitable development activities in Caloocan City’s RDA is the renewal of old structures and public facilities including improvement of transport infrastructure and utilities, especially on areas where flooding and traffic congestion are common occurrence. Integration of transportation system, with urban development and other renewal activities is also a recommended approach in developing the RDAs.

The Metro Manila Framework Plan establishes four major policy zones within the political jurisdiction of Caloocan City. These zones namely Regeneration Development Areas, Urban Control Areas, Environmental Preservation Areas, and SubUrban Development Areas have specific characteristics and recommended development activities suitable to its physical and environmental condition.

1.1.1.3 Urban Control Areas (UCA)
Urban Control Areas in Metropolitan Manila partly covers the whole First Congressional District of Caloocan City or all old districts north of EDSA (C4), recognized as part of the intermediate core between the inner and outer core of the Metropolis. Residential and commercial land uses are common characteristics of these zones, where land supply is exhausted although pockets of idle lands are present. The resulting condition of UCAs defers new or additional development that poses strain on existing amenities and infrastructure.

1.1.1.2 REGENERATION DEVELOPMENT AREA (RDA)
Portions of Caloocan City, identified as regeneration development area, are the whole districts, south of EDSA (including Gen. San

3
COMPREHENSIVE LAND USE PLAN REPORT, CITY OF CALOOCAN 1995-2020 Preferred pattern of development in UCAs concerning Caloocan City should center more on infrastructure development than deferment of new or additional development activities. North Caloocan City, where most low-density residential subdivision lies, lacks services and amenities that are possible to function, through an important increase of land use intensity in the area. The preferred land use activities in UCAs at Caloocan City, are addition of basic services, enhancement of existing facilities, and establishment of sound environmental management system such as solid and liquid waste management and improvement of air and water quality. The cited development pattern expects to sustain carrying capacity of resources, promote orderly dispersion of population, prevent environmental degradation and natural disaster, and improve the transport and traffic management system.

1.1.1.5 Suburban Development Areas (SDA)
The Physical Development Framework Plan designates strips at the outer part of Metro Manila’s intermediate core as Suburban Development Areas. In Caloocan City, SDA covers southern edges of Marilao-Mecauayan River including portions of Bagong Silang Resettlement Project, Tala Development Project, Malaria Barracks Area, and Pangarap Village. Within SDAs major mass housing and high-income subdivisions settled inhabitants usually seek employment from the inner core and the intermediate core. Generally, condition at SDAs consequently allows establishment of light industries and commercial activities that promote development of a self-contained community subsisting from on-site livelihood sources. Nevertheless, sectioning of SDAs in North Caloocan City should consider a wider expansion of coverage particularly involving most subdivisions lying on its northern half, and on areas where all mass housing and economic subdivisions and various residential communities constantly stay. Activities suitable in SDAs involves establishment of support facilities enhancing sense of community, promote community-based delivery of basic services, improvement of public transport system, and protection of environmental resources ensuring livability of settlements.

1.1.1.4 Environmental Preservation Areas (EPA)
Areas for environmental enhancement in Caloocan City cover river edges of Tullahan River. Primary characteristics of EPAs are those environmentally sensitive locations that are considered natural danger zone. Parks and other areas for recreation and intensely polluted zones with indication of environmental deterioration, also fall under EPAs. The three categories of EPAs are environmentally constrained areas, environmental protection areas and environmental enhancement areas. The Physical Development Framework Plan of Metro Manila in this case, defines Tullahan River as under the environmentally enhancement areas. The state of Tullahan River has seriously deteriorated, compelling all sectors to employ measures that will regenerate the river for future use as well as to secure the survival of the ecological system connected then. However, granting the cited major characteristic of an EPA, the protective zone should also cover all river system of Caloocan City as well as flood plain areas and subdivision open spaces and city parks. The special zone of EPAs implore activities on environmental protection including reforestation, relocation of endangered settlers, banning of construction, and employment of pollution abatement measures.

1.1.1.6 Urban Promotion Areas (UPA)
The Metro Manila Physical Development Framework Plan selects solely area surrounding Malinta Interchange in the Municipality of Valenzuela as the only location for urban development promotion in CAMANAVA district. Zones under UPA normally locate within intermediate and outer cores of Metropolitan Manila, in which development focuses on the promotion of production activities such as industries that are no longer feasible in RDAs. Likewise, the Framework Plan considers UPAs as redevelopment areas, inasmuch as current structural condition and land use activities in these areas shall likely transform to other suitable activities according to a preferred development thrusts.

COMPREHENSIVE LAND USE PLAN REPORT, CITY OF CALOOCAN 1995-2020 UPAs in common, position themeselves within longexisting industrial zones alongside residential and commercial uses that are expanding over the years. In these areas, light to medium-industrial activity yields the most volume of production activities. Having the widest intensity of transport network, UPAs also accommodate expanding commercial land uses leading to the swelling of sizes of mixland using activities. Their locations are not contiguous but somewhat dispersed, and in some places form pockets of industrial lots, surrounded by residential and commercial establishments. In view of the given characteristics of UPAs, therefore, development therein should seek balance between complimenting production activities and protecting population from pollutive industries. Nevertheless, the Physical Framework Plan for Metro Manila did not provide any Urban Promotion Area in North Caloocan City, despite the all too evident need of some locations for such zone. The local development thrust includes creation of urban sub-center resembling an UPA that will provide the badly needed employment opportunities and services from various urban amenities. In a like manner, designation of an UPA serves as the most immediate policy response to the development thrust of the City. As such, observation shows that vicinities surrounding intersections of SusanoCamarin Road and Old Zabarte Road, reflects the characteristics of being an UPA. The vicinity characterizes a typical transit point or node that attracts commercial and industrial activities which likely provide employment opportunities. Small commercial and large industrial establishments around the said intersection are also surrounded by residential communities that are suitable (and necessary) to engage in micro-scale businesses and to shift towards mix land using activities. (see Map 2) interconnection of special structure in Metro Manila and the adjacent regions. Under the regional studies conducted by JICA and DTI, the primary regional axis that will eventually affect urban development in Caloocan City is the North Regional Axis along North Luzon Expressway and the North Rail Corridor. The primary axis identifies Meycauayan and Malolos as the future major urban center outer north of Metro Manila. On the other hand, the secondary axis runs towards Cabanatuan City through North Caloocan City. (see Map 3) However, forming a strong north-south axis also becomes necessary to integrate potential planned urban development areas, both in the north and south of Metropolitan Manila. The most likely means to join functions of two axes are the establishment of transportation corridors that will ultimately traverse and intersect areas within both North and South Caloocan City (op. Cited). Likewise, the proposed Urban Structure Concept promotes the integration of existing Central Business Districts (CBDs) within and along EDSA, that includes A. Bonifacio District and the whole corridor of Rizal Avenue Extension.

The endorsement of the City Development Council for the ratification of the Medium-Term Development Plan clamors for the declaration of an ultimate vision that will respond to current and future issues and challenges gripping the City. During the delivery of the City Mayor’s State of the City address, the remark of the City Executive exclaims a vision, that cites the following:
“I have high hopes for Caloocan. My vision is to see a Caloocan where poverty does not exist, where everyone who wants to work is working, where the streets are safe and clean for our children, where people do not find the need to work in distant shores to sustain their family’s material needs.”
