The number of cities comprising the Metro Manila Development Authority may soon grow to 18 as chairman Francis Tolentino is bent on including San Pedro City in Laguna as a member local government unit.

Tolentino announced his plans for the inclusion of San Pedro City in the MMDA at the program commemorating the city’s first Cityhood Anniversary Monday. He was the Guest of Honor.

The MMDA chair said it is reasonable to include San Pedro City in his envisioned Mega Manila because it is the city of Laguna that is closest to Metro Manila.

He said he will formally make the proposal for the city’s inclusion in the MMDA at the first meeting of the MMDA Council of mayors in January 2015.

San Pedro public information officer Sonny Ordoñez lauded Tolentino’s plan to incude the city in the MMDA since the area has “highly urbanized people” and is considered a “dormitory bank” for people who go to work in Metro Manila.
