Since its incorporation in 1960, the unprecedented growth of San Dimas has transformed the City from an essentially rural area to a well-balanced community offering industrial, commercial, and residential living. In addition to the 1,700 acre Frank G. Bonelli Recreational Area which lies within the City boundaries, there are many parks such as San Dimas Canyon Park, a city-owned golf course (San Dimas Canyon Golf Club), and over 27 miles of equestrian trails for riding. The city services include an extensive recreational program for youth and for senior citizens, and the City boasts a new modern City Hall, with excellent provisions made for County Sheriff and Fire Departments, along with a fine Los Angeles County Library and Engineering Regional Office.
The City of San Dimas understands and supports the public’s right to access the public records created and maintained by the city in the course of their regular business. It is the goal of the City to provide service transparently, which includes timely access to requested records by the California Public Records Act, (CPRA), Government Code Section 6250 to 6270. The City of San Dimas provides access to public records, except those exempt from disclosure by law. Under the Act, the City of San Dimas has ten (10) days from receipt of the request to determine whether the request, in whole or part, seek copies of disclosable public records in the City’s possession and to notify the requestor of that determination. In unusual circumstances, the 10-day time limit may be extended by up to 14 additional days by written notice to the requestor, setting forth the reason for the time extension as required by the CPRA.
