Bel-Air wins Clean & Green Award for the 8th Year in a Row!
For the record-breaking eight consecutive year, Bel-Air was proclaimed the Cleanest and Greenest Barangay, Cluster I in the City of Makati for the year 2002. For winning this award, the Barangay received PhP 125,000 and a plaque, that now sits with its seven other siblings. Can we be any more honored?
Truly, this accolade is something the entire Barangay worked hard to achieve. As an eight-time winner, Bel-Air is being inducted into the Clean and Green Hall of Fame. While this makes the Barangay ineligible for future competitions, Barangay Capt. Nene Lichauco pledges "to continue the tradition of keeping our community a wonderful oasis of green in the midst of the urban jungle."
The Barangay Bel-Air Clinic's supply of 2004 anti-flu vaccine is almost depleted. If you have not visited the Clinic for your shot, please do so as soon as possible. This benefit is extended only to all Barangay Bel-Air residents who hold a current Barangay ID.
Bel-Air Village residents who want to plant trees, shrubs and bushes on the sidewalk must first secure a permit from the Ecology Committee. Otherwise, a fine of PhP 2,000.00 will be imposed on the violator and the planted tree(s) will be removed. This is in accordance with Board Res. No. 1997-08-05, which likewise authorizes the Association's Ecology Committee to formulate guidelines and recommendations on the kind of tree that may be planted in the sidewalk.
The Ecology Committee and the Beautification and Cleanliness Committee of Barangay Bel-Air agreed to assign a specific specie of tree to plant in every Village street in the residential area for uniformity. This was done in consultation with the tree expert contracted by Barangay Bel-Air.

Thus, the residents and property owners are assured that the Bel-Air Village will remain a "gated comunity."
