Santa Clara is a Charter City with a Council/Manager form of government. The City’s financial stability ensures the highest levels of citizen and business service, low business taxes and solid real estate value, and it is also one of the safest U.S. cities with a population of 75,000+. Our outstanding public safety record includes the highest fire rating in Santa Clara County and some of the fastest emergency response times in the state.

With a focus on high quality customer services and its reputation, it is no wonder more than 9,400 businesses, including many of the world’s top technology firms, and thousands of long-time residents have made the City of Santa Clara their home.

Numerous books have been published about the City of Santa Clara’s rich and varied history. They are available for checkout at the City’s library, or available for purchase from many local places, as well as online.
