Emerging as a leading business friendly community in California, Hesperia continues to take steps to provide an attractive experience to both commercial and industrial companies. The City is continuously looking at ways to enhance the quality of life for its citizens, whether it is adding additional access to the City through the Ranchero Road Underpass, launching a Citizen Emergency response team or providing quality recreation opportunities.
