Tracy

Tracy is a community of 83,000 where neighbors and local merchants greet residents by name and the welcoming never stops. Tradition, charity and prosperity abound. Locals know the City as one of the friendliest cities in California. Tracy is a place to kick off your shoes, sit back and relax. The opportunity to live the good life still exists here, and family, faith, education and the arts are still valued within the community.

Our strategic location is a theme that runs throughout our town’s history, even as the country’s emphasis has shifted from railroads to highways. Tracy is centered in a triangle formed by the interstates of 580, 205 and 5. Tracy is also conveniently situated an hour from Sacramento, San Francisco and San Jose and a few hours from Los Angeles. If residents desire recreation, Tracy is also situated near the Bay Delta, Yosemite, and Tahoe.

There are extensive public facilities for sports and recreation for both youth and adults. The City is also expanding its recreational offerings through groundbreaking public-private partnerships. Tracy is also home to several annual festivals including the popular Dry Bean Festival–a nod to its agricultural history and a summer/fall evening Wine Stroll, which showcases one of the area’s local crops–grapes.

Tracy’s traditions are constantly being reinvented. While we move forward, we never leave our foundation. The City is proud of the significant strides it has made in positioning itself for future business success, resident prosperity, family enrichment and exemplary financial sustainability. Some of the progress made includes technology investments and a reorganization that created a streamlined permitting process and greater efficiencies for both the City and investing businesses. Tracy is a growing, evolving, vibrant community with new and expanding possibilities around every corner.
