Welcoming, Expansive and Affordable

California City, was built by visionaries who saw the full potential of this high desert oasis, long before others could imagine the possibilities. Early developers envisioned a master planned community surrounding an expansive central park with lake, golf courses and civic center. This thriving central core of the state’s third largest city in land area stands as testament to the grand entrepreneurial spirit which created our region.

We are within a two hour drive of world class museums, entertainment, shopping and beaches to the south, or the incredible High Sierras to the north. One of the gems of the state park system is just twenty minutes to the north. California City, with its clean air and water, low traffic, low cost of living and endless vistas, recreation and nature outside the backdoor, is an amazing place to live and conduct business in

Embracing the Cannabis Industry - After months of community input, well-crafted medical cannabis ordinances were added to the city’s municipal code. This new, legalized industry in CA will bring cultivation and manufacturing, processing, transportation, security, research and other support businesses to the City. In turn, creating jobs, driving infrastructure improvements and expansion as well as significant tax revenue that will be recirculated throughout the City again and again.

The influx of businesses and industry moving to California City is spurring the construction business. Homes are being built, ground has been broken on several production and grow facilities, and a shopping center is under construction. This is a trend that will continue in 2018. Grants and business growth are contributing to robust infrastructure upgrades and expansion.
