Working in Clovis

The City of Clovis is a community with access to abundant recreational resources, community festivals, and family related activities and services. Clovis has long adopted the slogan “Clovis – A Way of Life” which is true in all aspects. This growing community of over 100,000 is dedicated to promoting economic self-sufficiency and planned land use. Although part of the larger Fresno/Clovis metropolitan area (pop. 500,000+), Clovis residents have the advantage of a unique blend of both rural and urban living. Fresno’s Chaffee Zoo and a variety of art and historical museums are within a 20 minute drive. Yosemite and Kings Canyon-Sequoia National Parks and many other Sierra Nevada lake, recreational and ski areas, are easily within a 90 minute picturesque drive.

The City population is growing and new housing is being constructed to meet these needs without compromising the integrity of the strong community identity found in Clovis. Safe streets and excellent city services are demanded by and delivered to our citizens. Affordable and comfortable housing can be obtained within a ten-minute drive, walk or Clovis Transit ride to work and major shopping areas. The typical value of a home in Clovis is $500,000.
