THEN AND NOW
most historic event took place in 1938 when Bacolod was elevated into a
city through Commonwealth Act 326 passed by the National Assembly
creating the Chartered City of Bacolod. Assemblyman (later senator)
Pedro Hernaez of the second district sponsored the bill. The law was
passed on June 18,1938, but it was not until October 19,1938 that the
city was inaugurated because of persistent rains during the year.
Bacolod was proclaimed as Chartered City by virtue of Commonwealth Act
President Manuel L. Quezon appointed Alfredo
Montelibano, Sr. as the first City Mayor of Bacolod (now both deceased).
Barangay Alangilan started as a Sitio of
Barangay Granada, Bacolod City in the year 1938. Before and after the
World War II, the place was know as Sitio Calaparan. During that time,
the Mayor of Bacolod City was late Hon. Alfredo Montelibano, Sr. the
father of former Provincial Governor of Negros Occidental and former
Mayor of Bacolod City, Hon. Alfredo L. Montelibano, Jr. The first Barrio
Lieutenant of Granada during the time was the late Melecio A. Quiachon,
the father of the late and former Barangay Captain Patricio B. Quiachon
of Barangay Alangilan who serve the Barangay for more or less twenty
Barangay Alangilan remained as Sitio Calaparan
until in 1962 when the said Sitio was created under City Ordinance No.
104, Series of 1962, and defined its boundaries as a separate Barrio and
took effect on May 1, 1962. The late Hon. Teofisto M. Cordova was
Bacolod City Mayor that time.
The first Barrio Lieutenant in Barangay
Alangilan was the late Francisco Acot Guadalupe and named as the “
Father of Barangay Alangilan”.
The original name of this place is Calaparan, but
when the majority of its inhabitants executed a petition as required by
the City Council of Bacolod for the creation of a new Barrio, it was
changed to ALANGILAN, which derived from scented flowering trees known
as Ilang-Ilang that was grown and existed in the locality. However, on
the northeast portion of this barrio there is a body of water
continuously flowing known as Alangilan Creek.
Alangilan is very rich of potable water because
it has many rivers, creeks, and springs (under earth water), in
different areas. In fact, its water source the natural springs of
Buro-Buro and Bucal-Bucal, located 14 and 16 kilometers respective
upstream form the City proper of Bacolod and are with in territorial and
political jurisdiction of the Barangay.

Water District (BACIWA) took over the operation and maintenance of the
Yulo Waterworks System of the City as agreed and covenanted, and
pursuant to Memorandum of Agreement entered and executed by and between
the City of Bacolod and Bacolod City Water District, thus the Memorandum
of Agreement was ratified by virtue of Resolution No. 4539, Series of
1974 on January 14,1974 of the City Council of Bacolod.
On the 124th regular session of the Sangguniang
Panlungsod of Bacolod City held on November 20, 2003, the City Ordinance
No.346, Series of 2003 was enacted and entitled, ”AN ORDINACE
