  • Economy

    Bacoor has developed into a site of commerce. Trade, banking and the service sectors are Bacoor's primary income earners. Commercial activities are sporadic throughout the municipality ranging from wholesale to retail establishments, restaurants and eateries, hardware and construction supplies and other service-related industries, especially those located in SM City Bacoor

     at the corner of Molino Road and Daang Hari. The entrance area from the Coastal Road to Aguinaldo Highway in Talaba and the area surrounding the Zapote Public Market (now the Bacoor Public Market) are other commercial centers. Bacoor has branches of 11 different commercial banks all over the municipality.
    Land use developments in Bacoor include a proposed industrial village in Barangay Niog which will include light cottage industries with supporting residential and commercial facilities. A vast track of land in Molino area, on the other hand, is envisioned to host residential, institutional and commercial facilities. Dubbed as the New Bacoor, the land use plan in Molino seeks to utilize the area not only as a dormitory for individuals who work in Metro Manila but also for people who have migrated to Bacoor in search of economic advancement. The proposed urban waterfront development, which will cover a portion of the reclaimed area of Manila Bay, will be the front door of the municipality linking Bacoor to Boulevard 2000. The area will include an integrated mix of residential, business, commercical, tourism and recreational facilities. The proposed expansion of the LRT (Light Rail Transit) to wind up in Bacoor, designed to ease to flow of traffic in major thoroughfares, is another major development.

    Crops, the productive area of which has lessened to only 100 hectares while fishponds which likewise decreased to almost half of the original 760 hectares. Salt production, fishing, oyster and mussel culture, which are now being threatened to near extinction because of pollution and overpopulation, are the other sources of income of the residents. These industries are also threatened by the construction of the Manila-Cavite Coastal Road Extension which will directly affect the Bacoor shoreline. The construction is not yet finished, thus affecting traffic flow in and out of Bacoor and the whole province of Cavite, as the town serves as the gate of the province. Very heavy traffic congestion is experienced by motorists due to unjustified traffic schemes, and poor and slow road maintenance especially during rush hours when most motorists travels in and out of the province to work on the nearby cities of Metro Manila. Bacoor is currently experiencing a rapid shift from an agriculture based economy to a residential/commercial urban center.

    Religion

    Roman Catholicism is the dominant religion in Bacoor, mainly due to the influx of immigrants from other places, most notably from Metro Manila.

    The original inhabitants of Bacoor are mostly members of the Philippine Independent Church

     or "Aglipayan Church". The Aglipayan church has a long and colorful history in the town. It is one of the first Catholic congregations in the Philippines to join the new movement and then Catholic Priest Father Fortunato Clemena became the first Aglipayan Priest and as well as the first Aglipayan Bishop of Cavite through the Aglipayan Schism period. Most of the first members were Katipuneros headed by General Mariano Noriel who is also the first president of the laymen organization. Today the Aglipayanos have a magnificent Cathedral in honor of its patron saint, St. Michael, in the center of town. The Aglipayans which they are most commonly called run the Bacoor Parish School.

    There is also a small population of Muslims around the Zapote area, where a local Mosque

    History

    Some accounts indicate that the town of Bacoor, also named Bakood or Bakoor (named after "Fence" made of bamboo, Fence in Pilipino is "Bakod"), was founded in 1671. When the Spaniard troops arrived in "Bacoor", they met some local inhabitants in the process of building a fence around their house. The Spaniards ask the men what is the city's name, but because of the difficulties in understanding each other, the local inhabitants thought that the Spaniards were asking what they are doing.
    The men answered "Bakood". It was then pronounced Spanish which is "Bacoor" by the Spaniards soldiers and was soon officially called "Bacoor".

    Bacoor was also the site of the Battle of Zapote Bridge
    Battle of Zapote Bridge
    The Battle of Zapote River, also known as the Battle of Zapote Bridge, was fought on June 13, 1899 between 3,000 Americans and 5,000 Filipinos.

    In the aftermath of the Philippine Revolution

     which coincided with the declaration of the first Philippine independence on June 12, 1898, Bacoor was designated as the first capital of the Philippine Revolutionary government by Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo

     until it was transferred to Malolos, Bulacan. "Gargano" was then the revolutionary name assigned to Bacoor by Aguinaldo's henchmen.

    During World War II, The occupation from the Japanese Imperial armed forces entered the towns in Bacoor on 1942 during the Japanese Invasion. From 1942 to 1945, many several of the Caviteños between men and women was joining the strong group of the recognized guerrillas under the Cavite Guerrilla Unit (CGU) and the Filipino-American Cavite Guerrilla Forces (FACGF) led by Colonel Mariano Castañeda and Colonel Francisco Guerero of the 2nd Infantry Regiment, FAGCF in the towns of Bacoor and arrvial by the local Filipino soldiers under the ongoing 41st and the pre-war 4th and 42nd Infantry Division of the Philippine Commonwealth Army during the Japanese Occupation.

    From January to August 1945 during the Allied Liberation, Filipino soldiers of the 4th, 41st and 42nd Infantry Division of the Philippine Commonwealth Army and the 4th Infantry Regiment of the Philippine Constabulary including the Caviteño guerrilla fighters of the Cavite Guerrilla Unit (CGU) and the 2nd Infantry Regiment of the Filipino-American Cavite Guerrilla Forces (FACGF) was liberated and recaptured the towns in Bacoor and defeating Japanese Imperial forces and ended in World War II.

    1995-1998 (10th Congress)

    HB08959 was filed by Congresman Renato P. Dragon with other cityhood bills of Imus (HB 08960) and Dasmariñas (HB 08931)

    2004-2007 (13th Congress)

    The previous local government, led by its most recent mayor, Jessie Castillo (who served as the town mayor until June 30, 2007) aggressively pushed for the conversion of Bacoor from a municipality into an independent component city (which meant it would no longer vote for provincial officials, would no longer depend on the province for budget, and may have a separate congressional district) despite stiff opposition by people's organizations, subdivision homeowners' associations, and even the people themselves. Even Cavite's first district Rep. Joseph Emilio Abaya, to whom Bacoor falls under his jurisdiction, at first refused to sponsor the cityhood bill in the House of Representatives
    House of Representatives of the Philippines
    The House of Representatives of the Philippines is the lower chamber of the...

    , saying that the town is not yet ready for more complicated problems that would arise from cityhood.

    As a general rule, a bill towards the cityhood of a municipality must emanate from the House of Representatives where the concerned district representative—in Bacoor's case, Abaya—should sponsor the said bill. However, the particular bill for Bacoor that Castillo is actively pushing had Party-List Reps. Rene Velarde and Hans Christian Señeres as principal sponsors..

    Statistics also indicate that Bacoor is ranked fourth from among the municipalities in the Philippines in terms of liabilities in millions of pesos in 2004, with PhP147 million. It is tied with San Pedro
    San Pedro, Laguna
    The City of San Pedro is a first class Municipality in the province of Laguna, Philippines. It is named after its patron saint, Saint Peter. San Pedro is Laguna's gateway to Metro Manila since it lies on the boundary with Muntinlupa City, Metro Manila's southernmost city...

    , Laguna as first from among the towns in Region IV with such.

    Castillo vowed to push for cityhood of Bacoor at all costs, but the campaign hit a snag as Abaya and the provincial government under Gov. Ayong Maliksi filed a dissenting opinion before the House Local Government committee regarding the cityhood issue, which meant further delay of its enactment since that House session ended in 2006.

    It was also discovered that on August 2006, Abaya also filed his version of the cityhood bill with the other two Cavite congressmen—Reps. Gilbert
    Gilbert Remulla
    Gilbert Cesar Remulla is a Filipino newscaster and politician.-Biography:Gilbert is the seventh and youngest child of former Governor Juanito Remulla and Ditas Catibayan Remulla...

     and Jesus Crispin Remulla—as secondary sponsors; however, this is entirely different from the one Velarde has filed (and the one Castillo is actively supporting) as it calls for the creation of the City of Bacoor as a component city of the province.

    Cong. Gilbert Remulla of the old Second District of Cavite filed his own Bacoor cityhood version

    2007-2010 (14th Congress)

    Bacoor Cityhood was filed by Rep. Abaya again through Housebill 06422 in the 14th congress to convert the municipality of Bacoor into a component city. That bill is still pending in the House of Representatives, while that of Dasmariñas has already been transmitted to the Senate and is already approved on third reading and is signed into law by the President (Republic Act 9723) and was ratified through a plebiscite last November 25, 2009.

    Mayor Strike Revilla revived the push and around the town materials have sprouted proclaiming "Yes to Bacoor Cityhood! Now na!"
    Such campaign which include the town mayor's name can be found everywhere in town, on lamp posts, overpass, electric posts, flyover, highway, and even on road railings.

    2010 (15th Congress)

    Newly elected Congresswoman Lani Mercado filed HB00521 which will create the City of Bacoor. It was filed last July 1, 2010. It is now in the senate.

    Lone District of the Municipality of Bacoor

    In keeping with the decentralization of Cavite in the midst of increasing population by adding more congressional districts to streamline delivery of public services in the province, a bill was filed by Rep. Joseph Abaya
