The request of Boracay Foundation Incorporated (BFI) regarding height requirements of buildings in the island is still pending.
In an interview with the BFI Executive Director, Pia Miraflores on Wednesday, May 29 by Yes FM 91.1, she said that currently it was not clear to the BFI what the answer the Town Council will give about their proposal.
It was learned that the BFI had approached Mayor John Yap long time ago regarding the proposal.
However, even during the Town Council session held yesterday, the matter was not discussed.
Nevertheless, Miraflores said BFI still hopes that the proposal will be approved by the Town Council.
The proposal of BFI aims to make the existing fourteen (14m) meter maximum height of buildings in Boracay Island, be increased to sixteen (16) meters for what is referred to as “Development Needs” of the island.
