Welcome to Our Community


We are pleased to welcome you to the community. Enclosed is information about many community resources such as telephone numbers for a wide range of City services and programs and school districts; a listing of library locations; archives of our semi-annual community newsletter, and much more. We hope you will find this information helpful.

San José is a confident and exciting city, full of optimism and opportunity. We treasure our past. We embrace our diversity. We nurture our future, in our children and through stewardship of our resources. People are proud to live here. In a 2001 community survey, two-thirds of us said our neighbors have pride in San José, and nearly 70 percent of us rate the quality of life as good or better. 92 percent of us feel safe in our community. For over ten years, the FBI crime statistics have shown that San José is the safest large city in the U.S.

Our city is committed to sustaining and improving the quality of life in every neighborhood, for every resident, now and in the future. San José has a strong reputation for creating innovative solutions and collaborative partnerships between government, businesses, schools, non-profits and residents to address the needs of the community.

Once you get settled, we encourage you to take advantage of the many civic, cultural and community organizations and activities in San José. We think you will find this a very welcoming community - one that values the participation of all residents. The continuing health of our community is based on strong participation by residents and businesses who work together to enhance the quality of life we all enjoy. Not only do you gain by becoming involved in community affairs, but the entire community benefits as well.

A great community has a special character – a spirit that makes it unique. San José, by this definition, is a great city, with wonderful promise and great potential for becoming even better. You now live in a strong, safe, and healthy community, with opportunities for everyone. Let us be among the first to welcome you home.
