According to the planning and building director, the city is comprised of 80% single-family homes, 5% multi-family units and 15% commercial/industrial space. Since more than 70% of the homes are owner occupied with an average length of residence exceeding 19 years, Fountain Valley is a very stable community.
That stability breeds good schools. The website GreatSchools.org gives Fountain Valley Schools a rating of nine out of a possible 10 in terms of quality education. The organization bases their rankings on how well students do on standardized testing compared to other students within the state. Obviously, Fountain Valley students are doing very well.
With a great location, access to the shopping, amenities and attractions of Southern California and an excellent school system, Fountain Valley is a safe and stable community in which to live, work and raise a family.
But just because the city has a lot to offer now, doesn’t mean that the community is content to rest on its laurels. Please read on to learn about planning and work that is being done to ensure that Fountain Valley continues to stand out among California cities.
