Inglewood: An All-American City

 

As a gateway to major commercial centers of the United States and internationally, Inglewood is in a unique position on the shore of the Pacific Rim. The Los Angeles International Airport is directly accessible by Inglewood's Century Boulevard – one of the City's busiest commercial corridors. Proximity to the airport, the Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors, and four major freeways facilitate both domestic and international trade.

: Access
Centrally located in Southern California, Inglewood is accessible to major transportation resources. Surrounded by Interstates 405, 105, 110, & 10;  two miles from Los Angeles World Airport (LAWA); served by Union Pacific & Burlington Northern Santa Fe rail lines; and less than 30 minutes from facilities at Los Angeles and Long Beach harbors.

: Labor Pool
Inglewood's work force is primarily professional or highly skilled, and over 46% have attended college.

: Training
The City provides its businesses with excellent job training and placement services at the Inglewood One-Stop Career and Education Center. The One-Stop Center provides businesses with subsidies for training new and existing employees, and offers access to teleconferencing, telecommuting and distance learning activities.

: Education
Inglewood is home to 21 public and 4 private schools ranging from pre-school to adult education. Inglewood houses Springfield College, the University of West Los Angeles Law School, and it is less than twenty minutes from Loyola Marymount University, University of California at Los Angeles, the University of Southern California, California State Universities at Long Beach and Dominguez Hill, El Camino Community College and Los Angeles Southwest College, and less than an hour away from a number of other Colleges and Universities.

: Housing
One of Inglewood's best-kept secrets is its beautifully landscaped neighborhoods and quality housing. Whether it's a gated community, historic family homes, or executive townhomes, Inglewood has the housing selection that you want, at a price that you can afford. The prices for real estate in the city are significantly lower than prices for cities with similar climates, with a median property value of $175,000. Inglewood is a family community with 86% of its homes being family households and almost half of all households occupied for more than five years.  Inglewood is committed to its sense of neighborhood, and has provided incentives over the past 25 years for the development of more than 300 single family homes and 550 condominiums, as well as 489 units of senior and disabled housing.
