Arcadia has a rich history and a reputation for achieving a good balance of beautiful and peaceful neighborhoods, quality economic development, and superior public services. As a community, we appreciate our past, value our traditions, and are poised for the future. This philosophy is the foundation of decisions made by the City Council and City staff. Every day we allocate resources to ensure fiscal stability and a high quality of life that includes not only basic municipal services - such as public safety and the maintenance of streets and sidewalks - but also the provision of enhanced amenities such as an exceptional library, a multitude of recreation activities for all ages, and an informative and interactive communications program.
Please know that City staff is here to work with you to preserve our environment of excellence. Employees strive to provide you with the best customer service and to be accessible, responsive, responsible and creative in meeting the needs of the community.
