History of Valencia City, Bukidnon, Philippines
- article from the LGU of Valencia City
The territory that now comprises the City of Valencia was formerly the thirteen (13) barrios of the Municipality of Malaybalay, Bukidnon. The earliest inhabitants in the area, now comprising part of the Pobl;acion, were Bukidnon natives who founded a settlement along the banks of Pulangui River. The pioneers were led by Datu Sebastian Manangkila.
Barrio Panlibatuhan, is derived from a Binukid word, pangyohan ho kayu ha malibato" which means the supply of Malibato wood materials fro home building. Malibato, the hardest wood in the Province of Bukidnon, was found in Valencia - a landmark of the Panlibatuhan Bridge. The first site of settlement was in a sitio named " Panglibatuhan" because the area was thickly forested with Malibato trees.
When the first one-room barrio school was opened in 1911, its first teacher was Mr. Jaime Galoprt. That school site was approximately the present location of Valencia National High School. Mr. Jaime Galoport came from Valencia, Bohol. So when the Southern portion of Malaybalay was separated as a new municipality, the settlers agrred to name it "Valencia" and is now known as the poblacion.
The rich natural resources found in the territory eventually attracted Christian settlers from Mindanao, Visayas and Luzon. The Immigration settlers in the area started in the middle of 1930's. During the World War II, the migration started to increase such that between 1960 and 1975, the population increased by 4.46 times or from 13,898 to 64,541.
The prime mover in the creation of Valencia into a town was the late Mr. Teodoro N. Pepito, the first appointed Mayor who led the petitions to convert Valencia into a municiplaity. By virtue of Executive Order No. 360 issued by then President Carlos P. Garcia, Valencia was officially born on January 16, 1961. Since the creation of the municipality in 1961, the municipal government had been headed by five (5) appointed and elected Municipal Mayors.
With the concerted efforts of the Municipal officials, Employees and constituents spearheaded by Mayor Berthobal R. Ancheta and Congressman Reginaldo N. Tilanduca, Valencia was converted into a City thru Republic Act (R.A.) No. 8985 to be known as the City of Valencia in the Province of Bukidnon approved by then President Joseph E. Estrada. The City of Valencia is dubbed as the City of Golden Harvest.
The phenomenal rise of Valencia as an urban center in the Province of Bukidnon gave way to the fulfillment of its vision. Consequently, the conversion of Valencia into a City resulted to the improvement of its peace and order condition, traffic management, infrastracture, sports and cultural facilities.
Mayor, Honorable Jose M. Galario, Jr. became the Fourth elected Mayor and the First elected City Mayor of Valencia when he won the Year 2001 Mayoral Race.

Natural Resources of Valencia City, Bukidnon, 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.
