City officials have assured suggestions from the public are still welcome with regards to the repair and improvement of sidewalks in Session Road as part of the city government’s Green Walks initiative that will start soon.
City Administrator Bonifacio Dela Pena said the project is not yet “set in stone,” as the city government is open to constructive criticisms, comments, and recommendations from the public for the betterment of the project.
City Engineer Edgar Victorio Olpindo said although a public consultation was already conducted and a notice to proceed has been issued for the project, the city remains flexible on the matter and will seriously consider all comments and recommendations from the public.
He assured the project will not affect the taxi stands and parking areas as feared by some residents. As to the construction of a shed, he said they plan to construct a sample for appreciation or critiquing and will adopt adjustments as needed.
City Engineering Office personnel surveyed the project site, which will initially cover the right side of the street (going up), last March 30. 
The project will be implemented for 263 days with the expected date of completion on Dec. 11.
Project scope includes the construction of a shed, bike lane, landscaping, and other infrastructure to realize the future Session Road as a complete street promoting safe mobility and leisure promenade for all. – PIO Baguio
