A BRIEF HISTORY ON THE CREATION OF THE BARANGAY

The Barangay U.P. Campus was created on June 25, 1975 by Executive Order No. 24 of the then Quezon City Mayor Hon. Norberto S. Amoranto. Since its creation, the barangay operated as a duly recognized basic political unit in Area 23, Fourth District of Quezon City with boundaries as follows:

POLITICAL BOUNDARIES:*

North: U.P. Compound and boundary line of Barangay Culiat

East: Katipunan Avenue to the boundary line of Balara Filter

Southeast: U.P. Compound and boundary line of Barangay Loyola Heights

Southwest: U.P. Compound and boundary line of Barangay Krus na Ligas, U.P. Village and San Vicente towards Culiat Creek

The said executive order was issued pursuant to Presidential Decree 557 dated 21 September 1974 decreed by the President of the Republic of the Philippines converting all existing barrios into barangays and abolishing the system of zone organization of barangays in Quezon City.

With the implementation of Republic Act 7160, otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 1991, barangays were given more powers, duties, and responsibilities as the basic political unit of the land due to devolution of powers from national agencies to local government units or LGU’s consisting of cities, municipalities and barangays.

With strong political will, active participation of non-government organizations, wide involvement of the residents and the leadership of the Punong Barangay, the Barangay U.P. Campus has improved dramatically in relatively all its components – legislature, justice system and executive arm – compared to the past administrations.
