Stanislaus County serves the public interest by promoting public health, safety, welfare and the local economy in an efficient, cost-effective manner.
Stanislaus County is located in Central California. With over 530,000 people calling this area home, its communities reflect a region rich in diversity and a strong sense of community. Stanislaus County is within 90 minutes of the San Francisco Bay Area, the Silicon Valley, Sacramento, the Sierra Mountains and California's Central Coast. It is also within a five-hour drive to Los Angeles. Two of California's north-south routes intersect the area: Interstate 5 and Highway 99. The mild Mediterranean climate, rich soils, and ample water make this County one of the best agricultural areas in the world, positioning it as a global center for agribusiness. The County averages just 12 inches of rainfall each year and experiences a full spectrum of the seasons. Temperatures range from an average low of 38 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter, to an average high of 85 degrees Fahrenheit during the spring and fall, and to an average high in the 90's during the summer months.
Stanislaus County is being discovered by companies of all types as a great place to do business. E & J Gallo Winery, Foster Farms, Frito-Lay, Sconza Chocolate, and Medic Alert all call Stanislaus County home.
