In this issue, we are featuring the first PPP project to be undertaken by a local government — the Talisay City Plaza Complex Heritage Restoration and Redevelopment Project, in Talisay City, Negros Occidental. The project will restore and transform the central public market into a mixed-use facility as well as restore the old city hall. This will complement the existing Italianate architecture and Neo-Romanesque columns of the old Lizares Mansion as well as that of the St. Nicholas Parish Church which are major tourist destinations in Talisay.
