DEVELOPMENT NEEDS
The population of Rosario is not wanting in terms of sports and recreation facilities. The most common of these are the basketball courts. The courts, however, can be multi-purpose and can be used for different activities other than basketball. Thus, the court can be reception halls, seminar venue, and other sports competition venue.

Continuous maintenance of the facilities can be programmed within the planning period. The present condition of these facilities if they are properly maintained can still be serviceable and operation even after ten years.

Sports and recreation management and administrative unit must be created within the municipal government. This is aimed at institutionalizing sports and recreation management in the municipality. This will give sports and recreations sector a permanent place in the governance of the municipality.
