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?
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."
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.
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.
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.
Corporate Life Extended for Another Twenty-five Years
the Special Membership meeting held on July 26, 2003, 673
members present in person or by proxy, constituting more
than two-thirds of the members in good standing and entitled
to vote, approved the extension of the corporate life of
the Association by another 25 years after its expiration
in August 23, 2007 or up to August 23, 2032. Thus, the residents
and property owners are assured that the Bel-Air Village
will remain a "gated comunity."
