Historical Background

Barangay Signal Village is a vibrant community, which was established on June 8, 1964 and was reinforced on January 25, 1965 by Gen. Alfredo Santos. The pioneering residents were mostly enlisted personnel from four major commands of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, who were relocated in this area (EM’s Signal Barrio) from UP Compound, Diliman, Quezon City with the assistance of Signal Service Battalion of the Philippine Army by then Chief of Staff Gen. Romeo Espino. Civilian residents were also included in the relocation.

Civic-minded female inhabitants who were mostly wives of military personnel formed an association and petitioned then President Diosdado Macapagal to separate Signal Village from military reservation. The group requested that the land be distributed to all actual residents of the barrio.

President Macapagal issued Proclamation No. 462 dated September 28, 1965 declaring the area and its environs AFP EM’s Village. Unfortunately, such proclamation was never implemented but still in effect. It was later learned that parts of the area were divided to FTI, Maharlika Village, and Veterans area.

On January 7, 1986, President Ferdinand E. Marcos signed Presidential Proclamation No. 2476 segregating this portion of land stipulated under R.A. 274 and R.A. 730 from the Fort Bonifacio Military Reservation and awarded the same to the bonafide and actual residents.

On October 16, 1987, with the support of Atty. Dante O. Tiñga, President Corazon C. Aquino issued Presidential Proclamation No. 172 adding to the former decree the words “without public bidding”. Out of the three barangays within the proclaimed area, Signal Village is the biggest with an area of 160 hectares more or less.

Upon the creation of this village, as disciplined military men they improved their area and as a continuing endeavor they are determined to finish all their work and they struggle making this community a better place to live until it became a well-developed community.

In 1998, this barangay was awarded as one of the Most Outstanding Barangay of Taguig, and barangay Chairman Atty. Henry I. Dueñas was awarded as the Most Outstanding Barangay chairman.

Today, Signal Village was divided into four barangays, Central Signal Village (originating barangay), Katuparan, North Signal Village, and South Signal Village, through the Taguig City Ordinace No. 61, Series of 2009.
