With our rich history of entrepreneurship, some of the world’s smartest and most creative people, and an unparalleled quality of life, there is no better place than Palo Alto to live, work, raise a family, grow a business, or just visit. For decades, Palo Alto has been a driving force in the global economy and the innovations that are developed here continue to change the world.

At City Hall, as we go about our daily work in our great City, we strive to mirror such innovation and to build a culture of excellence and service that enriches the lives of people in our community and builds strong social bonds.
