BARANGAY ALANGILAN
KALAPARAN
THEN AND NOW

     The 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 No. 404.
    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 (20) years.
   
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.
     The Yulo Waterworks System was established as 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 ESTABLISHING BACOLOD CITY NATURE’S PARK IN BARANGAY ALANGILAN”. And approved on December 01,2003 by the City Mayor Luzviminda S. Valdez.
    The primary objectives of the enactment and establishment of said ordinance are for the purposes of tree parks, eco-tourism and nature parks to protect the city watershed, prevent floods and soil erosion and maintenance to beautification project for the Barangay and the City as well.
     Today, Alangilan is being called as “ VEGETABLE BOWL” of Bacolod. It is starting to establish its name in game fowl breeding. It is envisioned to be the Summer Capital of Bacolod City.
     On December 15, 1999, the city Government of Bacolod under former Mayor Oscar R. Verdeflor awarded a certificate and branded Barangay Alangilan as “ LAND OF SPRINGS”.
