SBMA sets ‘clean-up Fridays’ to prepare for SEA Games
Oct 04, 2019

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT — Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Chairman and Administrator Wilma T. Eisma has scheduled regular weekly clean-ups and called for volunteers to help maintain the sports venues here for the upcoming Southeast Asian Games.
 
In a video message posted on social media, the SBMA head asked for assistance and stressed the importance of cleaning up Subic in time for hosting the 17 competitions to be held here from November 30 to December 11.
 
“Come, join us; come and volunteer,” Eisma said. “Help us clean our beaches; help us clean the game venues so that we can show the world a Subic Bay Freeport that’s clean, a Subic Bay Freeport that’s united.”
 
She added that with less than 10 weeks into the 30th SEA Games, the agency would need all the help it could get from residents, employees of locator-firms, and even students in the Subic Bay Freeport Zone and the neighboring communities “so that we can show a face of Subic that is worthy of pride to the whole world.”
 
Under the clean-up schedule, the volunteers, along with SBMA personnel, will start cleaning the sites from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. each Friday.
 
Aside from the regular Friday schedule, SBMA departments have been also assigned on to do clean-ups from Monday to Friday from September 30 until the start of the SEA Games.
 
The four crucial clean-up sites are the Waterfront Road/Boardwalk area, Remy Field, Malawaan Park, and San Bernardino Road.
 
SBMA Senior Deputy Administrator for Business and Investment Renato Lee had also encouraged business locators to join the weekly clean-up and asked them to “adopt” clean-up areas.
 
He said the other areas that need to be maintained include the Moonbay Marina complex, Kalaklan gate, Magsaysay bridge, the former Park ‘n Shop, the vicinity of Harbor Point Mall, Subic International Hotel, Times Square, Golden Dragon, and Subic Bay Yacht Club.
 
He also asked neighboring locators to join clean-up projects near the Pamulaklakin river, Flying V gas station, NSD area, Rali’s Point, Triboa Bay, Edgewater, Acea Subic Bay Resort, the New Container Terminal, All Hands Beach Resort, and Hanjin jetty.
 
The SBMA is now undertaking a P133.5-million rehabilitation of sports facilities here, as well as repairing major roads to prepare for the Sea Games.

Chairman Eisma said the quality of the sports venues and other facilities in Subic, including the quality of the environment, would significantly define the SEA Games experience for delegates, as well as the general impression of how the Philippines hosted the event.
 
Out of the 56 sports events in the 2019 SEA Games, Subic will host 17. These are sepak takraw, beach volleyball, beach handball, muay Thai, pencak silat, table tennis, triathlon, duathlon, modern pentathlon, sailing, windsurfing, traditional boat race, canoe, kayak, chess, rowing, and shooting.
