In celebration of Muntinlupa’s 104th founding anniversary, the local government leads a series of activities including the blessing of a housing project and recognition of the city’s COVID-19 response partners.

As a kick-off event, Mayor Jaime Fresnedi and other local officials grace the blessing ceremony of the first four buildings of BALAI Muntinlupa, a housing project for local government employees and officials, situated at Lakeview, Brgy. Putatan, Monday morning.

BALAI Muntinlupa shall comprise of 35 four-storey medium-rise buildings with 668 housing units and 115 parking spaces.

In the afternoon, a Thanksgiving Mass is set to be conducted at the Muntinlupa City Hall Quadrangle, to be followed by a short program.

Vice President Leni Robredo congratulates the city officials and the people of Muntinlupa during the founding anniversary via recorded message. VP Robredo also recognizes the city’s resilience all throughout the years and vowed to provide assistance to Muntinlupeños.

Mayor Fresnedi expresses his thanks to the Office of the Vice President and the city’s partners in the local COVID-19 response efforts and sustainability of programs despite the challenges of the pandemic. 

The local exec attributes Muntinlupa’s development and the improvement of the local COVID-19 situation to the “whole-city” recovery approach. 

“Naging whole-city ang ating approach kung saan sama-sama ang lokal na pamahalaan, Muntinlupa City Council, mga barangay, kapulisan, mga kasama sa Bureau of Fire Protection, pribadong sektor, at ang bawat Muntinlupeño. Muli nating napatunayan na sa pagkakaisa, lahat ng adhikain ay mapagtatagumpayan,” Fresnedi says.

Muntinlupa City’s active cases have dipped to a single digit since December 16. To date, there are only six active cases in the city with five barangays logging zero active cases. While as of December 16, at least 437,010 individuals were vaccinated in the city, translating to 114% of the target.

The local government is set to award plaques of recognition to its local partners including the Barangay Captains, Muntinlupa City Police Station, Muntinlupa City Health Office, the National COVID-19 Vaccine Operations Center (NVOC), SM Center Muntinlupa, Festival Supermall, Ayala Malls South Park, Alabang Town Center, PLDT, Inc., and Globe Telecom.

Other officials attending the program include Congressman Ruffy Biazon, NVOC chair Usec. Myrna Cabotaje, Vice Mayor Temy Simundac, and members of the City Council. 

In 2021, the city has garnered several awards and citations from various agencies including: Green Banner Seal of Compliance Award, Best LGU in Nutrition Governance, Best LGU in the Implementation of National Dietary Supplementation Program, Best LGU in the Implementation of Nutrition in Emergencies Program, Best LGU in the Implementation of Nutrition Promotion for Behavior Change Program, Best LGU in Documentation of Nutrition Programs, 5th Most Competitive City among Highly Urbanized City in the 2021 Cities and Municipalities Index (CMCI), 1st in CMCI Resiliency Pillar, 5th in CMCI Infrastructure Pillar, 6th in CMCI Most Improved City, and 7th in CMCI Government Efficiency Pillar.

Muntinlupa gained its independent status as a municipality in 1917 through Executive Order 108 issued by Governor General Francis Burton Harrison. Today, it has transformed as a Highly Urbanized City with nine equally progressive barangays and a population of 543,445.
