About the City of Santa Clara




Quality, Tradition, and Service are more than words in the city of Santa Clara. They are the reasons that our citizens prosper, and why businesses choose to locate and expand in our City.

The City of Santa Clara, at the center of the Silicon Valley, is in a strategic regional location convenient to freeways, airports, railroads, expressways, light rail and other public transportation.

With 19.3 square miles of tree-lined neighborhoods and thriving commercial/ industrial centers, it is an ideal location for new, relocating, or expanding businesses.

Santa Clara has a long tradition of quality public services and a well-maintained infrastructure. The City has owned and operated its own electric, water and sewer utilities for over a century. Lower utility rates and high standards of service have encouraged the relocation and growth of businesses in our community.

The City's financial stability is further encouragement to local businesses. Low business taxes, moderate real estate prices (compared to other jurisdictions within the Bay Area) and low crime rates are also key components to economic prosperity. Santa Clara's fire defenses and physical conditions continue to receive the highest rating in Santa Clara County (Class 2 fire protection). This very high standard benefits the community through lower fire insurance premiums for commercial businesses and industry. The community provides significant expenditures for education. Excellent residential areas, fitting all types of family budget needs, are located in and around this community. A program assisting low and moderate-income "first-time home buyers" is available through the City's Redevelopment Agency.
