In a Memorandum of Understanding and Cooperation (MOUC) signed by Vice Mayor Sebastian "Baste" Duterte representing Davao City Government, Lt. Gen. Felimon T. Santos Jr., Commander, Eastern Mindanao Command, GMA Kapuso Foundation, and other major partners on July 31, 2019, in Mapula, Paquibato, EMC through the 52nd Engineer Brigade will carry out the construction while 10th Infantry Division through the 1003rd Infantry Brigade will be tasked to secure the project.
