History

The city now known as Cerritos was incorporated on April 24, 1956 as Dairy Valley, its name symbolizing the more than 400 farms and 10,000 cows found within its limits. Two years later, Dairy Valley voted to become a chartered California city. As land values and property taxes in California rose in the early 1960s, agriculture became increasingly unattractive in southern Los Angeles County, and development pressures increased dramatically. In a special election held on July 16, 1963, residents voted to permit large-scale residential development. As a reflection of its newly suburban orientation, the city's name formally changed to "Cerritos" on January 10, 1967.

Cerritos is a prime example of the "fiscalization" of California politics after the tax revolt of the 1970s and the passage of Proposition 13. With property tax increases effectively banned by Prop. 13, and most citizens already feeling that their income taxes and payroll taxes were too high, the only way for California cities to raise long-term tax revenue was to create as many commercial zones as possible to take advantage of the portion of county sales tax revenue allocated to municipalities. Cerritos was one of the first cities in the Los Angeles area to embark on a program of large-scale retail development, and achieved stunning success. (Economists and game theoreticians would identify Cerritos' success as a prime example of first mover advantage.) As part of this strategy, in the early 1980s the city developed the Cerritos Auto Square (still one of the largest auto malls in Los Angeles County), which generates more than $10 million in annual sales tax revenue.

Cerritos' tradition of intelligent, progressive government is reflected in its civic facilities. In 1978, Cerritos dedicated the nation's first solar-heated City Hall complex. In 1993, the world-class Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts first opened its doors, attracting well-heeled patrons of the arts to the city (and generating a great deal of business for the city's increasingly upscale retail sector). In 1997, the city opened the state-of-the-art Cerritos Sheriff's Station/Community Safety Center to provide public safety services to residents 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week. In 2001, the city opened an architecturally acclaimed public library costing more than $40 million. (The original reinnovation contract with the contractors was 22.4 million.)

In recent years, Cerritos has attracted a large population of upper-middle-class Filipino, Korean and Chinese immigrants. The "A-B-C" (Artesia-Bellflower-Cerritos) region, including the neighboring cities of Hawaiian Gardens and Lakewood, is considered one of the most ethnically diverse areas in the world.

Cerritos City Government

Cerritos operates under a Council/Manager form of government, established by the Charter of the City of Cerritos which was drafted in 1958. The five-member City Council acts as the City's chief policy-making body. In March of odd numbered years, Councilmembers are elected by the citizens of Cerritos to serve four-year, overlapping terms. Councilmembers who serve two consecutive four-year terms are not eligible, for a period of two years, to seek reelection or be appointed to the Cerritos City Council. The Mayor, selected by the Council, is its presiding officer and serves a one-year term. In the Mayor’s absence the Mayor Pro Tem assumes his or her responsibilities.

A City Manager is appointed by the City Council. The City Manager ensures the City’s policies are implemented and oversees the City’s five departments: Administrative Services, Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts, Community Development, Community & Safety Services and Public Works.

Two other positions are appointed by the City Council: the City Attorney and the City Clerk/Treasurer. The City Attorney’s responsibilities include representing and advising the City in legal matters. The City Clerk/Treasurer is the Election Official, custodian of the City’s records and serves as Clerk of the Council.

Advisory boards, made up of individuals appointed by the Council, provide guidance in determining how to meet the City’s needs and include the following: Economic Development Commission, Fine Arts and Historical Commission, Parks and Recreation Commission, Planning Commission, Property Preservation Commission, Community Safety Committee and the Let Freedom Ring Committee.

In fact, the City of Cerritos has its own shuttle service called Cerritos On Wheels (COW). The COW is a tribute to the city's origins as Dairy Valley, and in addition, the fare for the COW is fairly generous: now $.50, a recent increase from the original $.25 a trip. The COW has two routes, providing visitors and citizens access to all of Cerritos' popular destinations. Additionally, the COW also connects to Long Beach Transit, Orange County Transportation Authority, Norwalk Transit or MTA Buses at various stops. The COW vans run on propane fuel, providing an environmentally sound way to move citizens and visitors.

The Museum has artwork from famous painters such as Degas and Rembrandt. In association with the Smithsonian Institute, part of the Cerritos Museum's exhibits are rotating and seasonal while housing a permanent city collection. It is located in the same vibrant Civic Center as the Cerritos Library, Cerritos Towne Center, Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts, Cerritos City Hall, Cerritos Sheriff Station, and Cerritos High School and adds another jewel in Cerritos "triple-jeweled" crown as a leader in state-of-the-art and high quality public facilities in the country.

The Cerritos Auto Square

Many residents of Southern California remember the advertising jingle of "Take the 605 to South Street, Cerritos Auto Square!" Some may remember the character "Ernest" played by late actor Jim Varney in Cerritos Auto Square commercials, and was replaced with motorcyclist stuntsman Super Dave, until they brought Varney back in digital form in the most recent commericals. In 1988, the City of Cerritos took it upon itself to beautify the Auto Square, adding a New Orleans theme and making improvements to the landscape and road, and adding rocky waterfalls and public fountains. The Cerritos Auto Square, the world's largest with its 27 dealerships, earns the city approximately $10 million a year in sales tax, which is the single largest source of revenue for Cerritos. In 2004, the Auto Square sold 52,856 automobiles.

The Los Cerritos Center is an integral part of the City's revenue plans, enabling the city to beautify its streets and maintain the City's public services and parks. In addition, the mall is the City's second largest revenue source, producing $485,000 per square foot in sales a year. This classifies the Los Cerritos Center as a "mega mall." It was last remodelled in 1996 and includes three themes to add to the shopping experience. "The Avenue" houses mainly more affordable fashion apparel and services, "The Grand Hall" holds the more upscale stores and boutiques, and "The Garden" offers a wide array of specialty shops as well as the Palms Court Cafe food court. Presently, the City is in the talks with the Center for a complete restoration of the mall which will include a new department store and a parking structure as well. In 2004, some 13 million shoppers visited the mall with the December 23rd marking the biggest day of the year with some 96,956 visitors. Offering a highly diverse choice of shops and deparment stores, the Los Cerritos Mall attracts thousands of people a day and is considered the best mall in the area by many.

The project is bounded by 183rd Street, Bloomfield Avenue and the Artesia (91) Freeway. In the summer of 2005, the City will complete a new Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill restaurant as well as a new Border's bookstore and a Linen & Things that will replace the former site of the Barnes & Noble. A Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and Chipotle Mexican Restaurant, located in the new Bloomfield Place, will be completed by summer as well.

Cerritos Millienium Library

The Cerritos Library looks like a theme park for books. However, historically, the Cerritos Library has not always been this way.

The Cerritos Library originally opened for the public in September 17, 1973. 8 years later, the city made its first renovation to the library for 6.6 million dollars. 21 thousand square feet (2,000 m²) were added for 5.4 million dollars, and the remaining 1.2 million dollars was spent on furniture and equipment. The 1981 renovation also included a multipurpose room, which the local school district used to bring elementary children to learn about the local history of Cerritos, in addition to holding educational field trips.

In the late 1990s, Cerritos recognized the emergence of the Internet and its importance. Thus, plans for a second renovation were developed and approved; Cerritos was flush with sales tax revenue from its thriving commercial zones.

To ensure that the renovated library would be built to the highest standards, the city sought advice from a team of top library experts, including librarians at Harvard University. During the reconstruction of the library, all materials were moved offsite to a parking lot near the Towne Center. For several years, the library and its collection, resided in rented portable structures. The second renovation and expansion was completed in March 16, 2002.

At the time of its second re-opening, the Library was the first building in North America to be coated in titanium panels (like the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao). It features an elaborate interior design, with reading rooms decorated in a variety of old-fashioned and ultramodern styles. A third floor was added, and several conference rooms were created on the second and third floor.

The library has been redecorated with a very futuristic outlook utilizing neon, stainless steel, and glass. Computers for basic Web surfing and catalog access are everywhere, and a large set of full-service computer workstations (with Microsoft Office) has been set up on the third floor.

The Cerritos Library currently holds a Smithsonian Affliation. Additionally, it has been awarded American Library Association/American Institute of Architects "Award of Excellence" back in 1989.

The City of Cerritos also has a county park, Cerritos Regional Park (referred as Regional by local residents), which is substantially larger than the Cerritos Park East. Liberty Park recently underwent massive renovation and reopened to the public in February 2005.

Local schools

The local school district of Cerritos is the ABC Unified School District (http://www.abcusd.k12.ca.us/). In 1965 Artesia, Bloomfield, and Carmenita School Districts unified and became known as the ABC Unified School District. Artesia, Bloomfield, and Carmentia are street names in the local area. It is commonly mistaken that the ABC School District stands for Artesia, Bellflower, and Cerritos.
