Arcadia is known for many things, among them high property values, beautiful neighborhoods, safe streets, excellent schools, stable and responsible municipal government, quality commercial districts and involved residents. We are also known as the best city in California in which to raise kids!
These attributes have long been the case in Arcadia and as such, it may seem like they are achieved easily and without much effort. In fact, it takes a considerable amount of work by people who truly care about the community. It takes time, expertise, foresight and dedication to a common goal to keep Arcadia a great place in which to live and do business.
The city encourages you to be active in your neighborhood associations and civic and service groups. We want you to let us know what you think about locally controlled issues that affect your quality of life. We think it’s great if you have the time and can volunteer for a local organization that could use your help. We hope you will support local businesses because their success is your success in that they play a major role in the funding of public services.
