ANALYSIS

Geographically, San Pedro is strategically located between the Metropolitan Manila and the Industrial Estate of Calabarzon. Being the first town of Laguna, it is the center of staging point for both of the mentioned areas.

In general, San Pedro may be noted for its abundant supply of potable water from its underground water reserve. A great portion of land area is plain while a small part of it can be considered upland.

It's shoreline areas, or low lands, may be suited for agricultural and fishing industry purposes. Because of it being submerged to the Laguna Lake waters these areas may be utilized for cash crops production, grazing animals and other livelihood projects initiated and implemented thru cooperatives.

Its terrain features and a good road network make accessibility to transportation and good mobility. It has also good public amenities and utilities to cater to the needs of local populace. With this the influx of migratory individuals involved in industrial and manufacturing businesses increased, thus different barangays became the site of housing centers, but still some vacant lots can be found in these areas.

Overall, San Pedro has changed from agricultural to an industrial status and still on its way to progress, in the advent of the creation of Mega City Manila. The whole Calabarzon may be annexed to it. With the above characteristics, the area is flexible enough to suit to the changing environment with its corresponding needs.
