The City of Fontana is located about 50 miles east of Los Angeles. The City spans approximately 42.4 square miles and has a population of 204,312. The City was first developed as an organized rural community through the vision of Mr. A. B. Miller. Although self-sufficient, the farming community was abruptly reshaped to accommodate the industrial revolution in 1942 with the transformation of Mr. Miller’s farm into a steel mill by Henry J. Kaiser. The area became Southern California’s leading producer of steel and steel-related products. The steel industry dominated the City’s economy until 1984 when the steel mill closed. Today, Fontana has emerged as an affordable suburb, attracting both residents and businesses.
