The main paths of people of San Mateo is the Barangay roads. Road linkages
from the town center to the other areas or barangay in San Mateo. It also connect
people from the remote areas of San Mateo like Pintong Bukawe to the town center.

Government Development

Ring Roads(RR) will provide arterial access coming from Gen. Luna Ave. going
to the inner areas of the towns central development areas where residential
subdivisions and business centers are located. These ring roads will be 4-lane
undivided roads with provisions for shoulders that will alleviate vehicular flow
friction especially in instances of drop off/pick up of public transport commuters.
These ring roads will similarly be connected to the other main thoroughfares.
The succeeding figure shows a typical roadway.

Trails in Timberland Heights makes San mateo known as the mountain biking
capital of the Philippines. Its nearly 2 kilometers stretch of uphill paved road that
leads to the gates of Timberland with 200 ft elevation. That why bikers called that
the wall.

Marikina River

The river follows a more or less East-West direction until San Jose, Rodriguez,
where it takes a sharp North-South turn towards the Municipality of San Mateo,
where the Ampid River forms the boundary between Barangays Maly and Ampid. At
this point across the River in Quezon City, Calamiong Creek drains Barangay
Bagong Silang. Further downstream the Nangka River and its own tributary in the
Sapang Labo Creek mark the Boundary between San Mateo and Marikina.

Watershed Area (Wawa River and Pintung Bukawe)

The 2,974-hectare increase in the Forest Areas of the new land use plan is
due to the inclusion of the watershed area in Pintung Bukawe. From 1,456 hectares
the area is increased to 4,430 hectares. This portion of Pintung Bukawe was
excluded in the 2001 CLUP because it was being claimed by the municipality of
Rodriguez. However, the local government of San Mateo maintains that this land is
historically part of San Mateo as can be found in old municipal records and

The proposed 2010-2020 CLUP included this 2,974-hectare watershed to

regulate the use of the area and prevent the building of large structures since this is
a high-risk geohazard area. This will also ensure the protection and preservation of
the watershed.

Government Development

1. Improvement of Drainage Infrastructure

a. Construction of Dikes and Holding Ponds

b. Realignment of Meandering Portion of Marikina River

c. Realignment of Nangka River

d. Construction of Proposed Water Detention Reservoirs/ Impoundment


2. Sustainable Reforestation

Shows the various climate change adaptation projects proposed for San Mateo.



Dikes are proposed to be constructed
beside the waterways. This is to retain the
area as potential storage of floodwaters.

Creating a series of storm water

detention or holding ponds will slow down
the flow of flood waters in Marikina River.


Realignment of Marikina River is

crucial to flood control because it is the one
which receives all the storm run-off from the
mountains. Realignment of this portion will
also direct the flow of the river and protect
the outer bend from further scouring.


The mouth of Nangka river is

generally directed perpendicular to the flow
of Marikina River. Realigning the Nangka
River outlet will create a smoother transition
of the outfall and increase the efficiency of
the flow of water in Nangka River.


Mini Dams or reservoirs can be used
to impound runoff water coming from the
upstream watersheds during the wet season,
for irrigation use within its vicinity during the
dry season.

Mini dams are needed because at present,

the mountains surrounding San Mateo lack
the vegetation needed to slow down the
very fast velocity of storm water run-off.

To reduce the surface water run-off from

the mountains aggressive tree planting
must be done.

The income generating forest is planned into commercially viable blocks

sufficient to support barangays. The sustainable forest will ensure the protection of
the mountainside vegetation cover and will thereby ensure that low lying areas will
be protected from high velocity surface water run-off.

Riverside Mixed-Use Development;

Construction of Dike and Elevated RoadThis project package will involve the
planning, design and construction of a Riverside Mixed-Use Development, and the
construction of a dike with elevated road.

The 23-Hectare Riverside Development will include high and medium-rise

commercial and residential condominiums, commercial strips, amphitheater, parks
and promenades.

The dike, aside from addressing the susceptibility to flooding of the flood-prone
areas near the river, shall also function as a road in order to provide an alternative
route to the municipality. The dike with elevated 4-lane road is estimated to be 4
kms. long.

Central Business District

The Central Business District is strategically located amidst the concentration

of settlements. A major commercial area starts from the vicinity of the public
market, bounded by the national road going to Montalban and Daangbakal St . At
Barangay Guinangbayan II. This commercial zone is a conglomeration of financial
institutions, a public market, restaurants/small eateries, retail stores and the like.

Another area, which may be considered as major commercial area, is within

the vicinity of Delos Santos St. corner Gen Luna St. , in Barangay Ampid I. Other
minor commercial areas are located near the Producers Market at Barangay Banaba
and in the corner of Patiis & Gen Luna St. , in Barangay Malanday.
Government Development

New Government Complex; Commercial

Center & Municipal Hospital

The project involves the development of New Government Complex. The 22

-hectare site shall be located a few kilometers away from the existing government
center to decongest that area. The proposed New Government Complex will house
the new Municipal Hall, Civic Centers, Hall of Justice, Sports Center and Municipal

A new Commercial Center will also be located in the site. The Commercial
Center will support the needs and complement the activities of the Government
Complex, as well as meet the demands of the rapidly growing municipality.
University Town

A University Town
will be developed in a 130- Hectare area located at the southern boundary of San
Mateo. The University Town will be a selfcontained academic community comprised
of school campuses and ancillary/support facilities like commercial centers, housing,
health services, chapels/churches, sports centers, etc.
Plaza Natividad

Where the Municipal Hall and Diocesan Shrine of Our Lady of Aranzazu you
can find. This is the image and heart of the municipality.

Development of Historical Town Center

The project involves the development of the towns historical center, with the
Diocesan Shrine of Our Lady of Aranzazu as the main focal point.

The project will entail Redevelopment of the Shrine Area and Facelift of the
Nuestra Seora de Aranzazu Parochial School. The project will also include the
design and construction of a Plaza that will be integrated into the Historical Center.
Part of the Historical Center plan will be the relocation of the Municipal Hall to
the New Government Center. The existing Municipal Hall building shall be renovated
and adaptively re-used for commercial, educational or institutional purposes.The
Historical Center will cover approximately 7 hectares.


Diocesan Shrine of Our Lady of Aranzazu (Nuestra Seora de Aranzazu)

Which is one of the oldest and most beautiful churches in the province. The
rich and meaningful history of the Diocesan Shrine and Parish of Nuestra Seora de
Aranzazu dates back to the early Spanish era of 1596, when the Augustinians friars
built the first settlements in the place. In the year August 29, 1659, the first parish
was built under and in honor of the patron St. Matthew (San Mateo), the apostle and
evangelist. But in December 6, 1696, the Jesuits came and gained control of the
town. Thus, in 1705, a Jesuit priest, Fr. Juan Echazabal, started the devotion to our
Lady of Aranzazu from Spain and changed the patron of the town from St. Matthew
to Nuestra Seora de Aranzazu.

In 1715, the first concrete church was built but was destroyed in 1863 by a
devastating earthquake. In 1887 the church was rebuilt and repaired but was again
destroyed by the war of 1942 during the Japanese occupation. In the year 1990, the
bell tower was repaired after the earthquake of July 16 of the same year. And in
1993, the whole church, including the main altar, was repaired and refurnished.

The Parish of Nuestra Seora de Aranzazu was proclaimed as a Diocesan

Shrine of Our Lady of Aranzazu by the Vatican, being the only church in the
Philippines under the title of Nuestra Seora de Aranzazu and only sister-parish of
the Basilica of Aranzazu in Spain. At present, the Rector and Parish Priest of the
Diocesan Shrine is Rev. Fr. Lawrence (Larry) C. Paz. He is assisted by Rev Fr. Gerard
Joaquin (Gerry) V. Masangya, Director of the Nuestra Seora de Aranzazu Parochial
School and Rev. Fr. Ramon (Boy) Daguman, guest priest from the Diocese of
San Mateo Municipal Hall

The new Municipal Hall Building, offers the utmost in public service
convenience and serve as one of the premier government centers for the entire
province of Rizal. And its located to centre of the San Mateo.

The project aims to make the Diocesan Shrine of Our Lady of Aranzazu
as the main focal point of the municipality.

The project will entail Redevelopment of the Shrine Area and Facelift of the
Nuestra Seora de Aranzazu Parochial School. The project will also include the

Timberland Heights

The 677-hectare Timberland Heights a mountain suburban lifestyle just 15

minutes away from Batasan Pambansa in Quezon City. Timberland Heights provides
the complete amenities of a township within a peaceful highland environment. Its
also known as one of the best mountain biking in Luzon.
There is a need to improve vehicular circulation within the busy town center and
decongest the traffic on the main highwayconnecting San Mateo to Quezon City,
Marikina and Rodriguez.

A proposed Circumferential Road (C-6), which will serve as a beltway, will cross San
Mateo in the near future. Once completed, this will connect the South Luzon
Expressway (SLEX) and the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX). This will connect SLEX
in Bicutan, will follow the periphery of Laguna Lake and eventually cross the
provinces of Rizal and Bulacan before eventually exiting to NLEX via an interchange
in Marilao, Bulacan.

A proposed access road from Quezon City is likewise being proposed to pass
through the existing 2.9-km long Patiis Road. This will serve as a shorter access to
the new San Mateo Landfill for the trucks coming from Quezon City. This access road
will entail the construction of a bridge that will cross Marikina River.

There is a need to improve vehicular circulation within the busy town center
and decongest the traffic on the main highway connecting San Mateo to Quezon
City, Marikina and Rodriguez.

Road linkages from the town center to the remote areas of San Mateo like
Pintong Bukawe need to be improved.

Existing roads are subjected to extreme heavy use by the dump trucks plying
the route to the new sanitary landfill. New and more direct access roads to the
landfill need to be constructed.

The local government of San Mateo is looking for aggressive development to

their municipality that will

1. Provide for more employment opportunities for the constituents;

2. Increase per capita income;

3. Raise income of the Municipality;

4. Provide a wholesome natural environment that will sustain life through the
protection of the quality of air, water and man-environment ecology;

5. Guide orderly and proper growth of development that is people- centered

and environment sensitive;

6. Enable all man-made structures to harmonize with and enhance the

natural environment; and

7. Generate funds for the implementation of the plan.
