Angeles City Barangays

Barangay Cutcut

Historical Background

The Philippines is divided into 15 regions, 21 municipal districts, 60-chartered cities, and 74 provinces (including Metro Manila). These are further divided into more than 1,500 municipalities (like Angeles City) and more than 40,00 Barangays (including CUTCUT), the basic geographic units of the Philippines political system. Each local government unity can create its own source of revenue and levy taxes. Each is governed independently by elected officials who are accountable to the national government for their actions.

On the late 1940 the biggest Barangay is Sapang Bato with 817.84 hectares while the smallest is Virgen Delos Remedios with 9.18 hectares of land. It has an elevation of 478 feet above see level, which gives Angeles a unique topographical advantage especially during floods. It has a total land area of 6,432.82 hectares and is unevenly divided among the thirty-three (33) Barangays. Its slopes, which start from 0 to 3 percent, are mostly plain expect those along the northwestern area, which are gently rolling hills. After the World War II Angeles grew northward to Barangay Balibago, Pandan, Anunas, Malabañas and Sta. Teresita because of their proximity to the gates of Clark Air Base. These Barangays were mostly nothing but rice and sugar cane fields before. The military base expansion was part of many contributing factors leading to its phenomenal growth, commercial, Trading, Housing complex etc., emerged, until they become bustling community that became responsible in making what Angeles is today.

Barangay CUTCUT was establish in the year 1821, and one of the Barangays of the culiat. In 1829, CUTCUT was one of the first barrios of Culiat, now known as Angeles.

JUAN G. NEPOMUCENO, THE Barangay Captain then, named it CUTCUT derived from the word Cutcutan, since the old Camposanto is located in CUTCUT.

During that time, the barrio assembly started clearing the planter vegetable and rice. Captain JUAN G. NEPOMUCENO bought a small sugar mill, called it Caldera. During harvest time, sugar milled in the said place.

Barrio CUTCUT was known for its sugar cane because of its suitable sandy loam soil and rice as its alternative product. CUTCUT has a land area of 416 Hectares.

In 1963, the barrio became more progressive and its population increased and to its scenic greenery and pastureland. Because of the tremendous increase in population, the owners of adjacent properties converted their own lands into subdivision. Nepomuceno Subdivision pioneered the said conversion by selling lots for house units. Followed by Bagong Bayan, Carmenville, Villa Teresa, Sunset Valley Subdivisions, and ect.

Soon many establish were built and many invested in this barrio because of its accessibility to the city proper. The presence of the American soldiers in Clark contributed also to the progress of CUTCUT.

During the liberation period, the term of Tenyente Del Barrio was only (1) year to give everybody a chance to serve. The tenyente was selected among the men in the barrio who has a strong character and proven integrity and respect by the people.
