Famous in international urban planning, Palafox’ expertise is being sought by the Leonardia administration, step by step towards the direction and dream of having a master plan for the city. Although they identified the benchmark, but nothing is closed yet. What is important, according to Leonardia is that Palafox will help Bacolod attain its master plan for urban planning. This will enable Bacolod City to become identified in the international level of standard as a city, once Palafox participates in its urban planning,” Leonardia pointed out.*
