ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

A City on the Rise...

Lemoore is a city preparing for the future while preserving the best of its past. Lemoore has enjoyed a steady population increase of four and five percent over the past few years. Site location consultants are impressed with the advantages that we have to offer expanding and relocating companies-a hardworking labor force, large tracts of affordable land, enterprise zone incentives, foreign trade zone designation, and a pro-business environment. Yet, Lemoore retains the charm and beauty of small rural town with its turn-of-the-century buildings and residences.

A City with Market Access

Lemoore is located in the heart of Central California’s San Joaquin Valley. Our location is equidistant from both the Los Angeles and San Francisco metropolitan areas. Lemoore is positioned at the crossroads of Highway 198 and 41, giving us direct access to Interstate 5 and Highway 99, both just 25 miles away. The Fresno/Yosemite International Airport, located just 35 miles away, services both commercial and freight air traffic.

A City with an Abundant Workforce

The available labor force in Lemoore has the benefit of being very diverse. Because of our heavy agricultural ties, there is an abundance of unskilled and semi-skilled general labor. But, there is also a significant amount of skilled workers with a variety of educational and technical training backgrounds. Many of our residents are related to navy personnel stationed at NAS Lemoore or were prior military themselves and have chosen to reside permanently in Lemoore. Technical training is available from West Hills College, Chapman University, College of the Sequoias, and the Kings County Job Training Office.

A City with a Pro Business Attitude

The City of Lemoore is committed to working with both local and future business and industry. The City Council and the City Manager are dedicated to bringing economic growth and vitality to Lemoore. Likewise, City staff are committed to simplifying the task of bringing new businesses to town. Several incentives are already in place that can help your company’s bottom line.
