Letter From the Mayor

As Mayor of Dixon, California, I’m happy to boast a bit about my hometown. Dixon was built on hard work and opportunity. When early citizens learned that the railroad was to be built a few miles outside their town, rather than remain isolated, they relocated to take advantage of what the railroad could mean for them—literally taking their homes and buildings and physically moving them to Dixon’s current location.

And that was just the beginning… Today our citizens are working hard in the areas of advanced manufacturing, food processing, agtech, biotech and more.

If you’re a business considering a move to Dixon, let me be the first to extend a warm welcome. We understand that having a strong economy is essential to having a strong community. If you are an existing business—whether you opened your doors yesterday or one hundred years ago, please know that we recognize your importance. We value you and will support you. Our City Council and staff, our Chamber of Commerce, our Downtown Business Association all stand ready to work on your behalf.

Dixon is proud of its businesses and its citizens. We recognize and celebrate our diversity. Our community, while growing, is of a size and character that you can make as much of an impact as you choose. We encourage your engagement to move our community forward. We are a city of doers, with many volunteer opportunities within our local government, educational institutions, community organizations and non-profits.

We recognize that Dixon’s location, with ready access to both the Bay Area and the Sacramento region, provides us with exceptional opportunities to enjoy all of what northern California offers. Join us. It will be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make.

Steve Bird, Mayor of Dixon
