The province will have two mega projects completed next year, the Bohol Panglao International Airport and the modern Capitol building in barangay Dao, this city.
The imposing Capitol is a four-story building constructed at a sprawling four hectare lot which is located on a hilly area that overlooks Tagbilaran Bay. The new Capitol will be on the higher level of the Carlos P. Garcia Park which starts across the Bohol Wisdom School.
The new Capitol building is scheduled for completion April next year, few months before the completion of the modern airport in Panglao, says Gov. Edgar Chatto during an interview with the Chronicle yesterday.
A basement parking is included while the government edifice takes pride to have its modern mechanized waste water treatment facility.
The P700 million new Capitol is a landmark project of the Chatto administration which incidentally reopens the old Capitol building today. The edifice fronting Plaza Rizal is now converted into a museum worked under the supervision of the National Museum.
On Sunday, the province launched a the soft opening allowing the public to view the centuries-old building which was constructed wayback in 1855 or some 162 years ago.
