The functional role of the Municipality according to the approved Provincial Physical Framework Plan of the Province of Northern Samar are as follows: Secondary center for commerce, trade and industry; producer of coconut or copra and rice; fishing grounds of various fish species; destination of eco-tourism; links with Legaspi, Tabaco and Cebu, and as service center of Pacific towns. These functional roles assigned by the province to Laoang is not only the result of planning, research and scientific studies, rather, these are real and existing potentials that when properly harnessed and developed would certainly boost economic activities not only to the town of Laoang but to the province as well.

As the center of commerce, trade and industry in the second district of the province, sufficient allocation of commercial areas were made in the preparation of the urban land use plan. Instead of the standard area of 3% of the built-up area, the area allocated to this land uses was increased to 5% of the built-up area. This was made to anticipate the commercial needs not only of the locality but also of the second district of the province.

As the center of industry in this part of the province, standard area allocation for light and medium industries has been complied with. Moreover, after delineating the allocation in the urban areas, the remainder of the required area was distributed to all identified growth node barangays of the Municipality.

As the service center of the pacific towns and port of entry to other regions of the country, the construction of the Mualbual Port which will serve both domestic and international shipping services will be completed. In fact, construction of marginal road networks and other transportation utilities has been incorporated and delineated in the urban land use plan. Standard allocation of road area requirements both in urban center and rural areas has been considered in the preparation of the urban and general land use plans.
