More informal settlers/families from esteros, flood and fire victims from Quezon City, Manila, Makati and Parañaque were transferred from 1970 to 1972.   By the first week of January 1973, the 7,840 lots were considered filled up.
Since San Jose and San Gabriel were converted into resettlement areas, the said localities have been provided by the government with infrastructures such as school buildings, rural health units, roads and bridges,  chapel, electricity, waterworks system, civic and government centers, commercial and industrial centers.   Sometime in 1970, Carmona Community Resettlement Council came into existence with the exception of Barangay San Jose under  Barangay Chairman  Hon. PATERNO J. GARALZA, while Areas C, D, E, F, G, H , I, J and K with  assignee leaders called Community Area Chairman, until late 1973 positions of  Barangay Chairpersons existed commencing at Area J Zone 9  thru
viva-voce spearheaded  by then   Hon. CESAR CASAL, the incumbent Mayor of Carmona.

     In 1974, through the initiative of all the Barangay Chairpersons of then San Gabriel, Carmona, Cavite, an Association of Barangay Leaders was formally organized with Hon. RICARDO AGRAVIO and Hon ALFREDO DIAZ, as chairpersons alternately.  The unity was tested by the outbreak of shortage of all essential commodities such as rice, sugar, edible oil and others.  An agreement was reached and thru Barangay Secretary of Area J, WALTER D. ECHEVARRIA, JR., official assigned to source funds to expedite the request for the supply of  commodities and  Barangay  stores started  with allocation of 150  cavans  (100kilos per cavan worth  P 150.00) per week, as quota for the whole,  of now  General Mariano Alvarez.
There are several business enterprises operating in the area which adequately meet the employment needs of the resident therein, and one is the 1st movie house “The Vision Cinema”  owned by Mr. DOMINADOR G. VIRATA, managed by Mr. LEONISO G. VIRATA,  who emerged as the 1st Mayor, of General Mariano Alvarez in 1981 upon separation from Carmona as on independent municipality.
The First Cavite Electric Company put up electrical lines and later through a referendum, MERALCO took the management.
Due to popular clamor of the residents of the aforesaid resettlement area towards conversion of the area into a new Municipality, the SANGGUNIANG BAYAN  of  CARMONA upon request of Governor  JUANITO  R. REMULLA favorably endorsed RESOLUTION NO.56, Series  of  1977 and  RESOLUTION NO. 13,  Series  of 1978.   
It was duly approved by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of the Province of Cavite, through Sangguniang Panlalawigan Resolution, by their presiding officer, the Governor of Cavite.
