Welcome from the Mayor
I welcome you to the City of Fowler, California, one of the most beautiful, diverse, and historically rich cities of the 15 communities that comprise Fresno County. Fowler is a small, full-service city of 6,200 residents, located in the San Joaquin Valley, approximately 5 miles south of Fresno. Fowler has a distinct “Americana” atmosphere and hometown feel, with well kept and peaceful neighborhoods and a charming business district. Fowler is in an ideal location, with close proximity to Sequoia, Kings Canyon and Yosemite National Parks, and just a few hours drive to San Francisco, the Central Coast, and Los Angeles. It is a great place to live and work.
The City of Fowler is proud of its past, present and future – and we are eager to share its outstanding quality of life – including excellent schools, beautiful parks and open spaces, and a broad range of recreational and athletic activities. Fowler is known for its well kept neighborhoods, attractive downtown, highly acclaimed school district, and its quality affordable housing. Active community involvement and volunteerism is also a hallmark of our City.
Fowler is unique: while it offers a small town charm, its also a progressive community that has created quite a buzz for business development. Several major agricultural and industrial businesses and employers are headquartered here, including Boghosian Raisin, Bee Sweet Citrus, National Raisin Company, and Borga Steel. Fowler is an ideal place for new businesses due to its prime central location, proximity to Southern Pacific railroad, major highways and business routes such as Highway 99, Golden State Boulevard, and Manning Avenue. It also offers plenty of land for business expansion projects and economic development in its large industrial corridor. We hope you will join us, either virtually through this website or in person, to experience and enjoy our City, and cordially welcome you to our home.
Mayor David Cardenas
