Lake Forest, California

From Academic Kids

Template:Infobox Community

Lake Forest is a city located in Orange County, California. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 58,707.

The city was created in 1991. Residents voted to name the city Lake Forest, after an expensive gated residential community, denying the longer claim to the territory by the community of El Toro. Since being founded, it has expanded its limits to include the new communities of Foothill Ranch and Portola Hills. The multiplicity of names often creates confusion: some people in the Portola Hills neighborhood, for example, can receive mail addressed to them at Portola Hills, Lake Forest, or Trabuco Canyon.

The City of Lake Forest hosts the headquarters for hard-drive maker Western Digital.

In 1994, Kathryn McCullough became Mayor, the first African-American mayor of any city in Orange County.
