Metro Manila residents have been seeing improvements in some public spaces as metro mayors undertake clearing operations in their respective areas of jurisdiction.

In a move to redevelop the Quezon Memorial Circle (QMC), the city government of Quezon City led by Mayor Joy Belmonte ordered the eviction of vendors after their permits expired last June 30.

Stall owners vacated the area on August 5 in compliance with the order, while some restaurants and stores surrounding the QMC playground were given until August 18 to vacate their spaces, according to a release issued by the city.

The clearing and cleaning aims to make Quezon Memorial Circle more useful for rest and recreation.
