This new year marks a special milestone for the City of La Mirada!  The year 2020 commemorates La Mirada’s 60thanniversary of incorporation.  The City will be celebrating its growth from the early days of citrus and olive groves to a desirable family-friendly community with a high quality of life.

To celebrate 60 years of progress, the City of La Mirada is featuring a special anniversary logo.  In honor of the City’s diamond anniversary, we will also incorporate the anniversary celebration into some of La Mirada’s most well-attended community events, such as our Summer Concert series.  We will also pay tribute to our City’s rich history by including articles in La Mirada Living, the City’s newsletter, to highlight important milestones. A traveling 60thanniversary historical timeline will also be displayed at some community events, including the popular Easter Egg Hunt in April.

La Mirada has experienced tremendous growth over the last 60 years and we have much to celebrate!  The City continues to have one of the lowest crime rates in the region due to the hard work of La Mirada’s Public Safety Team and a collaborative approach with residents and businesses.  The City also continues to invest in its infrastructure to improve neighborhoods and offers excellent recreational and cultural programs.  Businesses continue to invest in La Mirada helping create jobs locally.

Since the City’s incorporation in 1960, our residents have continued to show a tremendous sense of community pride. La Mirada residents work hard to keep their homes attractive, give generously of their time to civic causes, and gather together at community events throughout the year. I thank all of our wonderful residents and businesses for investing in La Mirada and making our City one that continues to thrive.

I encourage you to visit our Historic Neff Estate and learn about La Mirada’s history during this milestone anniversary year.  Free tours are available the third Saturday of the month from 2 to 4 p.m. Please visit our website at www.cityoflamirada.orgor look for future issues of La Mirada Livingfor anniversary information.
