Abstract
The Local Government Code of 1991 (RA 7160) empowers local authorities to manage their internal affairs consistent with devolution and local autonomy. In line with this, as implemented by Article 384 the Barangay Maloro must submit a Barangay Development Plan (BDP) and Annual Investment Plan (AIP) to the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG). This study delved on measures to elicit the citizen participation of the barangay residents in the planning, implementation and evaluation, the levels of citizen participation, and community issues that has generated citizen participation. Survey and interview were used to generate primary data from the 120 residents of Barangay Maloro, Tangub City. Descriptive and inferential statistical tools were utilized in examining the overall level of participation in planning, implementation and evaluation a higher percentage of the people were observed as less engaged. Furthermore, as manifested in the overall level of participation baranagy residents were observed as less engaged in planning, implementation and evaluation of the Barangay Development Plan (BDP) 2014-2016 and Annual Investment Plan (AIP) 2017. Therefore, the level of citizen participation indicates a medium level of participation which the Barangay Maloro residents were involved either in implementation only or in planning and implementation stage of Barangay Development Plan (BDP) and Annual Investment Plan (AIP). Among the recommendations are for the Barangay Maloro officials to promote community development through citizen involvement.
