Sunnyvale is a high tech bedroom community in Silicon Valley, which offers great commutes to jobs in surrounding cities, and also has plenty of employers of its own, as well. Located about 40 miles south of San Francisco, Sunnyvale has a population of about 133,000 people. Sunnyvale got its start in 1860 when the railroad came to town. In the 1870's, wheat was replaced by fruit orchards as the prevailing crop. Canneries were then built, with Libby's opening a plant in town. The Joshua Hendy Ironworks also opened for business in Sunnyvale, helping to supply some of the materials needed for weapons for the military. Today, the big industry in Sunnyvale is of course high tech, with some of the biggest firms, and brightest tech people, calling Sunnyvale home. Along with Mountain View, Sunnyvale is the only other city in Santa Clara County where apartments, condos, and townhouses outnumber single family detached houses. The ratio is approximately 1.1 to 1, however, whereas in Mountain View it is more than 2 to 1. Residential housing units in Sunnyvale were counted by the 2004 state census to include 54,194 residential units, of which 21,126 are single family attached houses, 3,940 are single family attached homes, 25,032 are apartments, condos, or townhouses, and 4,096 are mobile homes. Sunnyvale is home to hundreds of high tech firms, covering industries such as semiconductors, software, telecommunications, and much more. The housing options are many and range tremendously in price from a small studio apartment to a large single family detached house. For a large city, crime rates are surprisingly not too bad. Sunnyvale employs dual police officers/firefighters -- called public safety officers. To the best of our knowledge, the only other bay area city which follows that model is Rohnert Park, up in Sonoma County. Though unusual, one can think of many advantages in terms of cross training and public acceptance/perception of such personnel. It seems to work just fine in both Sunnyvale and Rohnert Park. Another interesting feature of Sunnyvale is the grouping together of almost all city offices (city hall, police, courthouse, library, etc, etc.) all together in one huge area the size of entire city block. They even have their own gas station for fueling of city vehicles, and it's all within walking distance of everything else. Sunnyvale was, long ago, orchard country. An employee of Libby's accidentally invented fruit cocktail when he took home a variety of leftover fruit in a can. Trivia: Rooster T. Feathers, a comedy club in Sunnyvale, was the first place to install a video game -- in 1972. Reach the Sunnyvale Chamber of Commerce at 408-736-4971.
