There would be infrastructure development in the areas included in the Blistt, among others, the mayor said.

Earlier developments in the city brought about by the Blistt concept were cited: the circumferential road, Marcos Highway, Naguilian road, and the Baguio-Aritao road.

Accordingly, the Blistt is for a "greater and comprehensive social, cultural, economic, business and government interaction," "growth quadrangle." (Julie G. Fianza)
