Zamboanga City 400 hectare Lake Reservoir - No more flooding incidents. No more lives lost. No more properties destroyed. No more water rationing. No more blackouts.
Sacol Island Airport
China and Japan are building artificial islands to make Airports. Here we are, blessed with a natural island. The future expansion of Zamboanga City’s International Airport (ZIA) and Cargo Terminal should be established in the city-owned big Island of Sacol. Sacol Island is the most ideal and logical choice for the future expansion of the city’s international airport because of its location and isolation from the limited flatlands of the city proper.

ZAMBOANGA CITY -- The city government has started the operation of its 5th Material Recovery Facility (MRF) as it seeks to strengthen the implementation of the Solid Waste Management Act.
Engr. Reynaldo Gonzalez, City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) chief, told the Philippine News Agency that the additional MRF located near the sanitary landfill in Barangay Salaan aims to extend the lifespan of the city's Sanitary Landfill System.
Gonzales said the MRF in Barangay Salaan initially will process an average of 15 to 18 tons of garbage a day.
The Barangay Salaan cooperative will help in the recovery of recyclable materials.
He said the city government spent some PHP12.41 million for the construction of the Salaan MRF, over PHP9 million of which was spent for the construction of the MRF building including a unit of anaerobic baffle reactor (ABR). The remaining PHP2.7 million was used to purchase the needed equipment.
Gonzales said the Salaan MRF is one of the components of the SLF second cell, whose function includes the manufacturing of the densified styro pavers.
The other four MRFs of this city are located at the old public market in Sitio Magay, Barangay Zone I; Bagsakan Center at the Sta. Cruz Commercial Complex in Barangay Camino Nuevo; at the old dumpsite in Barangay Lumbangan; and at the city government-owned slaughterhouse in Barangay San Roque.

|We're proud to bring to all the Zamboangueños around the world and in our beloved City of Zamboanga, a special gift from a very special woman who helped witness the Presidentialcreating the City of Zamboanga in 1936 - The former and still beloved Mayor Caling Lobregat, and her city hall crew. Muchas gracias con ustedes todo. Please download this photo freely, and share it with all your fellow Chavacanos, wherever they may be. This memorial photo belongs in all our hearts & homes. This is our story. This is our history. Long live our ancient City of Flowers!|
- Founded 13th and 14th Centuries
- Established June 23, 1635:
- June 23, 1635 should be symbolically known as “Dia del Chavacano de Zamboanga.” Why you might ask? This was the day that a permanent foothold was laid on Zamboanga by the Spanish government with the construction of the San José Fort, and the subsequent evolution and proliferation of a unique dialect/language based on ancient Creole Spanish that is called Chavacano de Zamboanga.
"Soon, the construction of one of the finest and most important Spanish forts in the East was put into effect. Upon careful choice of locating the fort at the southern-most tip of the peninsula for its military vantage point of the main water routes that converges in what's called today the Basilan Straights, the foundation of the grand fortress of Fuerza de San José was laid by Father Melchor de Vera, a Jesuit priest and engineer of the Spanish army, on June 23, 1635, establishing a permanent Spanish presence here brick-by-brick.2 Zamboanga City, as we know it today, was thus born."
- Established as Chartered City: October 12, 1936
The principal peoples of the Philippine archipelago were the Negritos, proto-Malays, and Malays. The Negritos are believed to have migrated by land bridges some 30,000 years ago, during the last glacial period. Later migrations were by water and took place over several thousand years in repeated movements before and after the start of the Christian era.2
Not much is known of the early inhabitants of the Mindanao Island peninsula during this time line. Although Western time line puts Philippine history in accordance to their discovery of the islands, this short-sighted view point cannot erase the factual history of the people who discovered and inhabited the islands long before the western world arrived. The barangay method of government of these peoples, in use for over a thousand years, was the biggest dividing line between their nation of small enclaves and the present geographically defined country that is The Philippines.

Republic of Zamboanga (Revolutionary Government of Zamboanga): May 18, 1899 - Nov 16, 1899 (de facto) - This was the timeline when the new republic was independent and free of any foreign influence.
May 18, 1899 - Fort Pilar and its Spanish troops, in Southern Philippines, surrendered to the Revolutionary Government of Zamboanga.
May 23, 1899 - The Spaniards evacuate the city of Zamboanga for good, after burning down most of the city's buildings in contempt of the Zamboangueños' revolt against them.
President of Zamboanga Republic
May 18, 1899 to November 16, 1899 [barely six (6)months], Vicente S. Alvarez was chosen by his fellow Zamboangueños to be their first president and popular leader of the revolutionary government established immediately after the former Spanish garrison troops evacuated to Manila. The events that followed afterwards were historically described as a mob mentality, filled with divided partisanship that lent to "jealous self-interest, biter rivalry, rapacity, and bloodshed" from assassinations and cattle-shooting for amusement. The president and his fellow Christian Zamboangueños' actions could not be considered heroic by any means, but was paralleled with that of the Moro Pirates with whom the fort of Real Fuerza de Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Zaragosa was erected to defend against.6
The rivalry between the local revolutionary leadership of President Vicente S. Alvarez and opposition leader Isidoro Midel allowed for the easy subjugation of the city by the American forces when Midel sided with the Americans upon their arrival. As a reward for his help, the new American rulers allowed Isidoro Midel to continue as president of the new Zamboanga Republic for about sixteen (16) months, against the will of the people, after former president Vicente S. Alvarez fled to Mercedes, then later to Basilan, when the Americans arrived and took control of the fort del Pilar and its remaining armament. The saying "divide and conquer" was aptly applied to the new Zamboanga Republic.6 Read more...

The City of Zamboanga is entitled to at least 3 Districts since 2007, yet the controlling POLITICIANS insists on keeping the city at 2 districts only. Answer: If there are three districts there would be more money for the city but less for the representatives because they have to divide it into 3. Example: If the city is getting 10 for 2 districts, each rep gets 5. With 3 districts the city will get more, like 12 but now it has to be divided among 3 so each rep will only get 4. The original 2 reps who used to get 5 do not like it cuz now they are getting less.
Based on the 2007 census, then Congresswoman Maria Isabelle C. Salazar now mayor was "working" towards passing into law for a Third congressional district of Zamboanga City. Three elections later, the city is still at only 2 districts.

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.
