The Senate Committee on Local Government on Thursday approved the proposed creation of the Metropolitan Davao Development Authority (MMDA).

House Bill 8930, seeking the establishment of the MDDA, was approved by the House of Representatives on March 25, 2021.

Under the plan, the following LGUs were identified to be part of the Metropolitan Davao: Tagum in Davao Del Norte, Island Garden City of Samal, Panabo in Davao del Norte, Digos in Davao del Sur, highly-urbanized city of Davao, and the towns of Carmen in Davao del Norte, and Sta. Cruz in Davao del Sur.

Sara said Moreover, the suggestions for the MDDA to assume the functions of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) in granting franchises, manage Davao International Airport, create the Metro Davao Police District, and elect the chairman of the MDDA are yet to be consulted with Regional Development Council XI chairman Jayvee Tyron Uy, said Duterte.

Also TF DAVAO, 10ID  will then include the whole AOR of MDDA and upsized to a brigade level to be headed by an O-7 ( Brigadier General ). Currently the Task Force is headed by an O-6 (Colonel) and its AOR is within the urban areas of Davao City only.
