Location and Geography of Ozamis City, Misamis Occidental, Philippines

  • Coordinates: 08°09′N 123°51′E

Ozamiz City is approximately within the geographical coordinates 123⁰39’50” and 123⁰52’45” east longitude and 08⁰04’05” and 08⁰12’30” north latitude. It is located at the southern part at the province of Misamis Occidental and is nestled at the western side of the entrance of Panguil Bay in Region 10 in Northwestern Mindanao.

It is bounded on the North by the Municipality of Clarin; on the east by Iligan Bay and Panguil Bay, separating the city from the two (2) geographically proximate cities that are Cagayan de Oro and Iligan; on the south by the city of Tangub and on the west by the Municipality of Don Victoriano. It has a total territorial land area of Sixteen Thousand Four Hundred Seven (16,407) Hectares excluding the contested areas that are not yet resolved.

Ozamiz City is characterized by its low flat elevation in urban areas rising in gentle slope westward as it approaches the interior. The terrain toward the western boundary bordering the Municipality of Don Victoriano and Tangub City (passing the buffer zones of the delineation of Mt. Malindang Range Natural Park which was proclaimed as national park and watershed reserve by virtue of Republic Act 6266), is particularly rugged and very sparsely settled as hills and rolling lands are among its physical features.

The elevation of Ozamiz City ranges from the flat lowland of the poblacion and its coastal barangays at about 1.9 meters above sea level to 562.55 meters above sea level of the nearest barangay approaching Mt. Malindang, Barangay Gala. Other highly elevated barangays are Guimad, Trigos and Sangay Daku having an elevation of 432.25 meters and 235.43 meters respectively (Table III-1). It is not surprising that the climates in these particular barangays are noted to be cool and chilly, the inviting charms that made them a promising potential for tourist development.

Mt. Malindang, the landmark of the city and of the province of Misamis Occidental has the highest elevation of approximately 2,411 meters above sea level. The mountain serves as a protecting wall against typhoons and strong winds.

History of Ozamis City, Misamis Occidental, Philippines

Misamis was an old town which originated as far back as the Spanish Era and was conquered strangely not by force of arms but through faith by some Jesuit Missionaries. The origin of the name “Misamis” is believed to have been derived from the Subano word “Kuyamis” which is a variety of sweet coconut that thrived in the area. During the years, the name persisted as an inference of geographical location and upon the advent of the Spanish settlers, the word “Kuyamis” easily gave way to the m ore conveniently pronounceable but corrupted word “Misamis”.

In 1757, heightened by the piratical raids in the coastal towns of the archipelago, Misamis was chosen as the principal anchorage in Mindanao by the Spanish conquestadores. Because of its strategic location, Jesuit Father Jose Ducos built a stone fort of “Cotta” or fortress which took many years to complete and still stands today. It served as the main bastion of a big Spanish task force against the Muslim s and the Portuguese. This fort becam e the nucleus of the town of Misamis which subsequently became an ecclesiastical center of northern Mindanao. Its patron saint is the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Immaculate Conception. With the town and fort established at Misamis, the seat of the Military Government was transferred from Iligan to Misamis. The Jesuits maintained a strong fleet under the flagship “Triunfo”. They called the bastion “Triunfo” and the image of Our Lady, as Nuestra Senora del Triunfo dela Cruz” . The Recollect Fathers undertook the spiritual ministration of Misamis in 1769.

In 1850, the town of Misamis became the capital of the District of Misamis, then composed of the present provinces of Zamboanga del Norte, Misamis Occidental, Lanao del Norte, Misamis Oriental, Bukidnon and Camiguin. After the Filipino-American War, the Americans established a civil government in Misamis on May 15, 1901. In 1912, the Philippine Independent Church gained a foothold although the Catholic missionaries had been established earlier in the province. In 1920, when many settlers from Bohol and Cebu arrived in Mindanao, the town of Misamis became a trading center.

Legislative Act No. 3537 passed on November 2, 1929 divided the old province of Misamis into Misamis Occidental and Misamis Oriental.

The Occidental comprised the towns of Baliangao, Lopez Jaena, Tudela, Clarin, Plaridel, Oroquieta, Aloran, Jimenez, and Misamis . Misamis was a municipality when Tangub City was created out of its (Misamis’) area in 1929. In a bloody battle at the outbreak of World War II, the Japanese troops encountered the Filipino soldiers under the command of Major Lucas Naranjo in Baga. On May 18, 1943, the Women’s Auxiliary Service led by Josefa Borromeo Capistrano was organized. The unit was composed of courageous women of Misamis Occidental who assisted the Tenth Military District under Colonel Wendell W. Fertig. >> Continue Reading

Natural Resources of Ozamis City, Misamis Occidental, Philippines

Protect the environment

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.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.

Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
