A Message from the City Manager

On behalf of the City Council and our staff, welcome to San Gabriel’s website.

As the birthplace of the Los Angeles region, San Gabriel is home to the fourth and most prosperous mission in a string of 21 California missions that once defined this region as an outpost of colonial Spain.

Today, San Gabriel continues to thrive as an extraordinary place, home to a vibrant community brimming with arts, culture and history. Visitors to San Gabriel can experience world-class entertainment at the legendary Mission Playhouse, museums in the historic Mission District, or a rich array of shopping, dining, and entertainment on Valley Boulevard.

However, to 41,000 residents, San Gabriel is home, with top-tier public safety services, award winning development programs, and a variety of parks, recreation, arts and leisure. The City Council, elected at large, is re-envisioning San Gabriel’s government with an eye toward openness, transparency and innovation. 

We are glad that you are here, and we invite you to explore this website to learn more about the City of San Gabriel. It’s our hope that you take an active part in the city’s future. Please reach out to us if we can be of service.

Best regards,
Mark Lazzaretto
