The unproductive and hilly 248-hectare land at Pilar Bataan will be developed as retirement place and source of living of government employees. This will still give employment to the local residents by raising crops like banana, rice, and corn. Also, fishponds, cattle breeding, and recreation will provide earning proceeds for the members of the Central Luzon Association of Regional Officers (CLARO). The conversion started last September as 1,500 mahogany trees were planted by 250 employees from various government offices and non-government organizations. This tree planting activity complied to Executive Order No. 26 or the National Greening Program which plans to plant 1.5 billion trees covering about 1.5 million hectares for a period of six years until 2016.

At present, CLARO has around 150 members in the region from various agencies, state universities and colleges, and government-owned and -controlled corporations. According to CLARO president and National Economic Development Authority-Region III director Remigio Mercado, the land will be a psychosocial and economic groundwork for retiring executives. He further explained that government service is not a tiresome job but a rewarding one. The agencies that participated in this project were the Philippine Information Agency, Civil Service Commission, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Philippine National Police, Department of Labor and Employment, and the Department of Science and Technology.
