About the City

Imus is one of the fastest growing towns in the province of Cavite in terms of population and industrialization. Urbanized yet still countrified in its landscapes, Imus faces a myriad of problems inherent to its growth, traffic, education, health services, cooperative development, housing, peace and order, business/entrepreneurship, youth and sports, infrastructure and ecology and environment.

On June 30,2012, a plebiscite was conducted by the Commission on elections from 7:00 in the morning to 3:00 in the afternoon in 453 clustered precincts which resulted to affirmative votes, necessary for the conversion of the Municipality of Imus into a component city.

After 20,438 out of 22,742 Imusenos casted their votes and gave bid for their nod of approval in favor of the Municipality’s bid for cityhood, the 238 year old Municipality of Imus was officially proclaimed a CITY at the now historic office of the Sangguniang Bayan. The 1st ever flag raising ceremony of the newly proclaimed City of Imus, 2012 was attended by hundreds of Imusenos.

Managed by a team of youthful politicians and technocrats, the City Government has put in place programs and projects designed to uplift the living standards of a population that is inching towards the million mark.

Inspite of all the industrialization, the Imusenos still remain true to the values of their forefathers, hence the impassioned devotion to the Philippine Flag waving valiantly as a symbol of courage and triumph come Wagayway Festival and the City’s title as “FLAG CAPITAL OF THE PHILIPPINES”.
