History of Mabalacat City, Pampanga, Philippines
Mabalacat became the town in 1712. It was named after the balacat tree(Zizyphus Zonulata Blco.), a fourth class timber. Mabalacat means full of balacat . Then a settlement of a Negrito tribe headed by a chieftain name Caragan, the area was virtual forest of balacat trees. It has land area of 15,262 hectares more than double that of Angeles City s. Two-thirds of the land area of Clark Air Base was taken from Mabalacat. According to old residents, from Liberation to 1949 all judicial cases were reffered to and heard at the Justice of the Peace Court of Mabalacat. Before 1712 Mabalacat was a barrio (Barangay) of Bambang, now Bamban Tarlac.
There is no official record on the foundation of this town, but according to stories handed down orally from generation to generation, the first settlers were purely Negritos led by Caragan. Caragan married Laureana Tolentino and adopted her family name. Laureana Tolentino was the first cabeza de barangay of Mabalacat, a title now equivalent to barangay captain. The Negritos were finally driven back to the nearby mountains and hills by the lowlanders who frequented the place to hund wild animals and fowls. At present one barangay, Marcos Village, is inhabited by Negritos who live in bungalow housed and speak broken English. Mabalacat like Porac, Sta. Rita, Magalang and Angeles City never gets flooded by heavy rain because it is situated on an elevated plain known as Upper Pampanga.
In 1853 Mabalacat had a population of 2,611 and four barangays, namely, Babangdapu, Duquit, Malabni, and Paglilmbunan. In 1903 its population increased to 7,049 and already had 19 barangays. These were Poblacion, Bical, Bundagul, Dapdap, Dau, Dolores, Iba, Mabiga, Mamatitang, Mangalit, Matas, Mawaque, Paralayunan, Quitangil, San Joaquin, Sta. Ines, Santa Maria, Sapang Balen, and Sapang Biabas. In 1948 its barangays increased to 20 with the addition of Fort Stotsenburg. Barangay Quitangil was replaced by San Francisco. Today Mabalacat has 27 barangays with the addition of Atly bola, Cacutud, Calumpang, Camatchiles, Macapagal Village, Marcos Village, Sto. Rosario, and Tabun. However, barangays Babangdapu, Malabni, Paglimbunan, Quitangil, Iba, Matas, and Fort Stotsenburg were renamed with their present names.
A first class municipality (Effective July 1996) Mabalacat has a population of 121,115 based on the (1990 census) and 129,900 (1995 Census). It has an average annual income of P 23,108,033.09 derived mostly from municipal license fees, land tax and IRA,. The biggest barangay is Dau with population of 47,180, and the smallest is Sapang Balen, with 347 persons.
Its people are peace loving and God-fearing as well as hardworking and industrious. They speak the Kapampangan dialect which is very rich in vocabulary and culture.

Natural Resources of Mabalacat, Pampanga, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
