Thousand Oaks

The City of Thousand Oaks, located in beautiful Ventura County, 12 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, is nestled against the Santa Monica Mountains and surrounded by more than 14,800 acres of natural publicly owned open space. This open space contains 75 miles of trails for hiking, biking, or just leisurely walking. While this natural acreage gives our community the best of nature, another source of pride in our community is the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza. Opened in 1994, this jewel of cultural arts has become a beacon for our region featuring world-class entertainment, musicals, concerts, children's shows, ballets, and much more. Thousand Oaks, a family-oriented community of 128,000, is home to excellent schools, outstanding parks, and myriad shopping opportunities, including the largest auto mall in the nation, according to J.D. Powers and Associates.

Incorporated in 1964, Thousand Oaks is a master planned community at its best. City services which other communities only dream about such as a city-owned library, teen center, senior center, cultural center, quality infrastructure, and natural open space is due to thorough planning by the City's past councils and leaders.

The City has been fortunate to have had a balanced budget throughout its history due to conservative management. To keep the balanced budget in place in the face of state budget cuts, City leaders have enacted a selective hiring freeze with approximately thirty positions frozen (not being filled). Even though Thousand Oaks is still growing, the City is not adding any new positions while maintaining current programs and services. City leaders have not added any new programs or positions for several years; cutbacks have been made in a variety of areas where possible.
