Written by: Bert Dalida

The Re-development Task Force has yet to decide what to do with the three boat stations at the Boracay's beach front.

Mabel Bacani of the Re-development Task Force said it is still under the deliberation of the National Task Force, since the mentioned structures are facilities approved under the Boracay Master Development Plan.

According to DOT Boracay OIC Tim Ticar, government structures that are considered service providers are not included or are exempted from the 25+5 meter easement.

Ticar said that the mentioned boat stations was funded by the Department of Tourism and was given to LGU Malay.

Meanwhile, the demolition of illegal structures at Boracay’s vegetation area have already been started, some were voluntarily done by the resorts and establishments themselves.
