Below is some general information about City of Industry:

Industry, officially the City of Industry, is an industrial suburb of Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Valley region of Los Angeles County. Home to over 2,500 businesses and 80,000 jobs, but only 219 residents at the 2010 censusÑdown from 777 residents in 2000Ñthe city is almost entirely industrial. It was incorporated on June 18, 1957 to prevent surrounding cities from annexing industrial land for tax revenue. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 12.1 square miles. 11.8 square miles of it is land and 0.3 square miles of it (2.31%) is water. Industry is a suburb of Los Angeles 22 miles (35 km) away from Downtown L.A.

The city’s zoning is primarily devoted to business: 92% is Industrial, 8% is Commercial. The few residences in the city either existed before incorporation, are on properties adjacent to either Industry Hills Golf Club, Industry Hills Recreation Center or in a small neighborhood adjacent to City Hall. In addition, there are residents at the El Encanto Healthcare Center, a nursing home owned by the City. The City of Industry has no business taxes and is primarily funded through retail sales tax from shopping centers located within the city limits, and property tax on parcels within the City. The city has the highest property tax rate in Los Angeles County, at 1.92%. In addition, there is a revenue-generating hillside hotel resort, known as the Pacific Palms Resort (formerly the Industry Hills Sheraton), which is almost completely surrounded by the city of La Puente but actually located in the City of Industry.

City of Industry is a popular investment area for Chinese businessmen and the city has also emerged as a high-tech import/export center for computer parts, with business links to the Asian marketplace. For convenience many Chinese entrepreneurs and staff live in nearby Rowland Heights, Hacienda Heights, West Covina, Diamond Bar and Walnut. Industry is also the location for the proposed Los Angeles Stadium.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has a regional station on Hudson Avenue, just off Hacienda Boulevard (shared with the neighboring City of La Puente, and the unincorporated towns of Avocado Heights, Valinda and Bassett), while the county Fire Department uses two stations (#118 on Gale Avenue, and Station #43 on Stimson Avenue on the west side of town). According to the 2011 FBI uniform crime reports, with a population of 222, Industry had 1,136 known property crimes, giving it the highest average per resident property crime rate(5.117) in California. The average property crime rate for the entire US that year was 0.029. The same report indicates 44 violent crimes, giving it the second highest per resident violent crime rate(0.198) in California.
