“We started with the Greenhills Shopping Center first because this is our main commercial area,” Zamora said in an interview over ANC.

“And now we will move towards entering the inner roads in all the barangays,” he added.

The city government implemented on Monday a “no parking” policy on both sides of four selected roads circling around Greenhills Shopping Center.

This, after Zamora issued an Executive Order last week, declaring Club Filipino Avenue, Missouri Street and portions of Annapolis and Connecticut Streets as “no parking zones” from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.

The city mayor also bared during the interview that a proposal has been made to open the roads in gated communities in the city for motorists during rush hour.
“There is a proposal to [open the roads],” Zamora said.

“Now, if there will be a directive from the President or from the DILG (Department of Interior and Local Government), then we will have to follow,” he added.
For the proposal’s approval, Zamora said that the local government will coordinate with the homeowners’ associations of the subdivisions.

“We will have to closely coordinate with the village associations. In fact even in previous years, this proposal has already cropped up,” Zamora said.
