Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan supports the reopening of 'Sitio La Presa' to the public due to the thousands of tourists the place attracts anytime of the year and the benefits Baguio City and nearby Benguet municipalities of La Trinidad and Tuba get.

Domogan on Wednesday said 'Sitio La Presa' is a tourist destination situated within a 'protected forest area' and is Sitio Pungayan of Tuba, Benguet.

Being a 'protected forest area,' people who go there should follow the rules and regulations imposed by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources - Cordillera Regional Office (DENR-CAR).

'At the same time, the concerned local government unit (LGU) helps in imposing the rules and regulations and iron out issues regarding prices of goods and produce being sold in the area when it was opened to the public two years ago,' Domogan said.

At the time, a kilo of strawberries in 'Sitio La Presa' was sold at PHP500 when it was sold only between PHP150 and PHP200 at the Baguio City Public Market.

'Sitio La Presa' was popularized in a national television network series entitled 'Forevermore' in 2014.

The DENR declared the area closed to public after the series has been completed and because the environment has been compromised.

Recently, the Benguet Provincial Board proposed a resolution for the DENR to reopen the area for tourists.

The proposal if approved will be forwarded to the Cordillera Regional Office of the DENR which will forward the same to the DENR Central Office for review and comments of Secretary Regina Lopez.
