consists mainly of areas within the inner portions of the city such as residential subdivisions and socialized housing sites
Security of tenure for informal settlers
Migration (chain reaction) = increase in population density
Increase of demand for the delivery of basic and support services
Ensure the predominant residential character of the city
Provision/expansion of basic services and facilities
Provision of efficient drainage system or rain water management system
Vacant Land Use
classified as agricultural areas, grasslands, salt beds and fishponds
Decrease in water absorptive capacity
Loss of livelihood (salt industry, inland fishery and agricultural sector)
Traffic congestion
Susceptibility to flooding
Proper drainage system
Increase price of idle land tax
Build cistern or water impounding system
Create livelihood intervention programs
Vacant Land Use
classified as agricultural areas, grasslands, salt beds and fishponds
Decrease in water absorptive capacity
Loss of livelihood (salt industry, inland fishery and agricultural sector)
Traffic congestion
Susceptibility to flooding
Proper drainage system
Increase price of idle land tax
Build cistern or water impounding system
Create livelihood intervention programs
Open Space
areas within the city limits such as roadside and easement
former controlled dumpsite, easement at coastal road area, freedom island, and those open spaces inside private subdivisions
Impose decrease in water absorption capacity if there will be no vegetation to harvest water.
Less vegetation would also yield less protection from air pollution.
Use of alternative water absorption technology
Commercial Land Use
1.04 percent or approximately 34.37 hectares increase in share to the total land area for commercial land use
Increase in economic activities = lot values will increase
Increase in the number of vehicles in the area = increase in demand for transportation services
Increase in waste materials = too much pollution
Economic prosperity = possible increase in crime rate
Support to economic activities (e.g. One-Stop-Shop Business).
Promote other forms of mobility (e.g. bike lanes)
Strengthen solid waste disposal system.
Monitor commercial activities.
Strengthen law and order in the area.
Industrial Land Use
areas which still have remaining industrial facilities while those areas already vacated were converted to other uses
As large industries are already veering away from the LGU, a large chunk of employment was also lost. This also resulted to a loss of government revenue (tax).
Reclassification into commercial or mix use area.
Can be used as evacuation areas during a calamity or disaster.
Institutional Land Use
consists of existing public and private schools, health centers, hospitals and medical centers; government offices, and religious centers.
Decrease in institutional facilities = increase in demand for basic social services
Loss of income for support businesses
Provision of additional institutional facilities
Facilitate manpower pooling/economic assistance
Employ skills upgrade or training for displaced workers
Parks and Recreation
parks and recreational areas are to be maintained as such; conversion to other uses shall be prohibited
Parks and recreational area may be used in times of disaster as a temporary/immediate evacuation area.
to maintain strategic circulation as well as evacuation area which is highly convenient to the local population.
a steady increase in the road network for the city of Las Piñas
Does not automatically translate to accessibility since much of the increase were due to opening of private subdivisions, thus road access are limited.
Future road developments should not compromise the aesthetic appearance of the city and its environment.
Traffic management is a priority.
Expand “Friendship Routes”.
Tourism and Development Area
remains the same at 10.06 hectares or 0.30 percent out of the total land use
Activities related to tourism are limited and lacking tourism support facilities such as hotels, souvenir shops and restaurants.
Tourism should not be limited only to the Historical Corridor, other manmade tourist attractions and its support facilities are still encouraged.
three existing cemeteries: a government-owned, a catholic cemetery and a private memorial park with columbarium.
Land use for the public and catholic cemetery is already maximized thus the need for land or other alternative method of internment.
Address the shortage of land for cemetery.
River System
remains the same at 36.04 hectares or 1.09 percent out of the total land use
including the city’s two major river system - Zapote and Las Pinas Rivers - also included are the tributaries
Problems are illegal dumping of solid waste and untreated commercial/industrial liquid waste, and soil erosion that can aggravate flooding.
Strict enforcement of laws and ordinances against illegal dumping.
Engage the community in regular clean-up activities.
Build flood control infrastructures.
