COMMUNITY

Fresno, California rests near the geographical center of the San Joaquin Valley and is the fourth largest city of the eight counties that make up the valley.  It is approximately 200 miles north of Los Angeles and 170 miles south of the state capitol, Sacramento.

Being that Fresno is in a centralized location, the city is merely a short distance from several major recreational areas and urban centers. Fresno is the nearest major city to Yosemite National Park, at only 60 miles south.  Likewise, Fresno is in close proximity to Sierra National Forest (40 miles), Kings Canyon National Park (60 miles), and Sequoia National Park (75 miles).  The city of Fresno sits at the junction of Highways 41 and 99 (41 is Yosemite National Park's southern access road and 99 branches east from Interstate 5 to serve the urban centers of the San Joaquin Valley), and is a gateway for Yosemite visitors coming from Los Angeles.  The city also serves as an entrance into the Sierra National Forest via highway 168, and Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks via Highway 180.

In 2013, Fresno became the largest inland city in California as its population reached 509,000, and was estimated in 2015 around 520,000, making it the fifth largest city in California, and the 34th largest in the nation.

Median incomes in Fresno are currently about $20,000 below the California state level.  The average real per capita personal income in 2015 in Fresno was $19,465 and the average median household income is $41,531.  Currently Fresno has 29.8% of the population living below poverty with 75.2% of the population is a high school graduate or higher and 20% of the population over 25 years of age hold a Bachelor's Degree or higher.  Fresno falls behind the state in all areas and identifiers.  Recently Fresno County has been identified as one of the most socio-economically disadvantaged areas in the state of California, and the nation as well.
