The Provincial Government of La Union (PGLU) recognized the Cleanest, Safest and Greenest Local Government Units (LGUs) in the recently concluded 167th Founding Anniversary at the People’s Hall, City of San Fernando, La Union last March 3, 2017.

Six LGUs received ₱5.25M worth of environment and agri-tourism related projects for being adjudged as cleanest, safest and greenest municipality in La Union. Also, four famous inland water destinations in La Union received an award worth ₱2.75M on the same day.

The municipalities received the award by garnering the highest scores after a field visit and validation last December 2016. They were judged based on the general cleanliness of the municipality, urban space greening, support systems for environmental management, and protection and people’s participation. Public safety and order was also considered during the visit which included indicators and measures on crime statistics and implementation of crime, drug and road hazard prevention programs.
