Chairman of the Lopinot Country Style Community Tourism Marcia Guerrero said, “They now have a better appreciation of the beauty of the forested area. The area encompassing “Oucoleau” (Black Water) and Mauvai Rock), between Surrey Village and Lopinot, is enchanting at night, and the new lights can offer more opportunities for eco-tourism.”

Member of the Lopinot Village Council, Richard Salina said, “Both residents returning home and visitors who come for its cuisine tours, parang festivals and lush scenery, can feel more secure when traversing the previously poorly lit area.”
