The City of Fountain Valley was incorporated on June 13, 1957, as the 21st city in the County of Orange. Since its incorporation, Fountain Valley has established itself both locally and nationally as a forward-looking community dedicated to improving the quality of life for its citizens. Fountain Valley adopted a Master Plan before any developments had begun. Fountain Valley has often been referred to as Orange County’s best-planned community.
The City is working on its General Plan Update to provide a long-range policy and planning document guiding the City’s physical development, conservation, and improvement. It is anticipated that the General Plan Update will be completed at the end of the year or at the beginning of 2023. The City’s General Plan was last comprehensively updated in 1995. We are excited for the future and proud to celebrate another milestone in our great City!
