• Gridley is growing, becoming livelier, more active, and more festive than ever before. You can see it in the historic buildings being restored to their former glory. You can see it in the new storefronts blossoming throughout the area. And you can see it in the partnerships among retailers, developers, the community, and the City.

  • The City is small enough to provide a quiet country life-style, and large enough to offer the amenities and conveniences of much larger cities. This quaint community with a population of approximately 7,000 residents is located in the heart of the beautiful Sacramento Valley at the foot of the world's smallest mountain range, the Sutter Buttes.

  • Come grow with us! Our community is a wonderful place to live, work, and play. Our rural roots make for an excellent workforce with traditional values. Our Economic Development staff will work with you to start or grow your business. We will connect you with our many local and state partners. We are focused on creating and enhancing conditions for both your family and your business to succeed and thrive.
