Prodded by political will, the municipal administration marked Panglao’s fiesta celebration with the signing of a landmark executive order, enforcing the mandatory salvage zone along the shorelines of the tourist town, a measure that once sparked debate with resort owners in the past.

Mayor Leonila Montero pointed out in her EO 9, series of 2014, that Panglao has to step up law enforcement efforts to preserve and protect their major tourism asset which is the beach or the shorelines that, in effect, will sustain and even improve the local businesses and the tourism industry.

EO 9 entitled “Enforcing the Salvage Zone and Easement along the Shorelines of this Municipality and Creating the Salvage Zone Enforcement Team for the Purpose” makes it a policy to prohibit any structure within the 20-meter salvage zone and or any facility or paraphernalia–be it for temporary purpose–that may destroy or obstruct the shorelines.
“In addition, owners of beach or shoreline establishments are obliged to maintain cleanliness in their immediate vicinities and beach or shorelines adjacent to their properties,” the EO stated.

The Salvage Zone Enforcement Team is tasked to strictly enforce the policy “to ensure the preservation and the sustainability of the general coastal ecosystem of Panglao”.
