From the big three metropolitan urban areas, let us not forget the cities that act as counter magnets that support primary urban centers. Now let’s take a look at secondary cities. This is the first map out of 15 I will be sharing about secondary cities identified by the USAID SURGE project. 😉 Here we have Olongapo City: port city, the potential of the city to consolidate port operations of adjacent special economic zones. What do you think? 😉
Haven’t you noticed that our settlement patterns follow waterways? What do you think should we do about taking care of our riverine systems and utilizing them in city planning?
