About Pico Rivera

Pico Rivera is a city located in southeastern Los Angeles County, California, United States. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 63,428.

History and culture

Pico Rivera (founded in 1784) was incorporated in 1958 from the merger of the long-standing unincorporated communities of Pico (named for Pío Pico, the last Mexican governor of California) and Rivera. Situated on a rich alluvial plain between the Rio Hondo and the San Gabriel River, the area was once predominantly agricultural, but since the 1950s it has been primarily residential. Pico Rivera lies below the Whittier Narrows, making it one of the "Gateway Cities."

The north side of the city is home to the Pico Rivera Sports Arena, where concerts and sports are occasionally held.

A number of good parks dot the landscape, including Rivera Park on Shade Lane, Smith Park on Rosemead and Mines, Pico Park on Beverly Blvd, Rio Vista Park, and Stream Land park at the North end of Durfee Road.

Business

Recent development

There has been frequent redevelopment in the city of late, starting with the opening of a mega-shopping complex along Washington Blvd, bringing well-known businesses such as Starbucks, the Borders Group bookstore, Walmart, Walgreens, a newly added Del Taco and other businesses into the city.

Other redevelopment has taken place in recent years along historic Whittier Boulevard, bringing new businesses such as Target and Panda Express there.

New developments include the Krikorian Theatres at the corner of Paramount Boulevard and Whittier Boulevard as well as a new Rite-Aid at the former Lucky's supermarket site on Durfee Avenue and Whittier Boulevard. A state of the art LA Fitness, Fresh and Easy market, Rubios, Round Table Pizza, Juice It Up and other businesses have opened up at the former Kmart site at the corner of Washington and Rosemead Boulevards.

As of April 1, 2009, the City of Pico Rivera imposes a 10.25-percent sales tax (statewide plus local supplementary), which matches South Gate's sales tax rate as the highest in the State of California.

Historical

There was a 157-acre (0.64 km2) manufacturing facility located at the corner of Rosemead and Washington boulevards which was owned and operated by the Ford Motor Company. The plant closed in 1980 and was purchased by Northrop Grumman in 1982 for its Advanced Systems Division. Upon the unveiling of the B-2 Spirit bomber in 1988, it was revealed that much of the development for the former black project had in fact occurred at the site. In the early 1990s, the division was renamed the B-2 Division to reflect its most famous product. At its peak, the project employed approximately 13000 workers in Pico Rivera. The site closed and demolished in 2001 and is now a large retail center, anchored by WalMart and Lowes.

Emergency services

Fire protection in Pico Rivera is provided by the Los Angeles County Fire Department with ambulance transport by Care Ambulance Service. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department provides law enforcement.
