Call The Central Valley Home
When you join CMP you become part of the Fresno and Clovis family. Located in the agriculturally rich San Joaquin Valley, the Fresno/Clovis community has grown to a population of more than a million, while retaining the easy quality-of-life found in smaller communities.
Over the last few decades, the Central Valley’s affordable housing, excellent schools and great weather have drawn professionals and families alike from Los Angeles and San Francisco, resulting in a vibrant and diverse community. With a number of surrounding suburbs, you can choose to live in an urban or rural setting, while maintaining convenient access to shopping, dining, entertainment and other services.
Fresno boasts superior educational facilities, including an acclaimed state university with nationally recognized athletic and academic programs. Fresno’s emerging downtown is home to the Triple-A Baseball National Champion Fresno Grizzlies, as well as an active arts, music and tech community.
Surrounded by three national parks, including renowned Yosemite National Park, and the beautiful Central Coast, recreational activities are limitless. From Fresno, you can reach ski the slopes of China Peak in just an hour, enjoy world-class wine tasting in Paso Robles in two hours, or explore the vibrant cultures of San Francisco or Los Angeles in less than a four-hour drive.
With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, low cost of living and immediate access to some of nature’s most breathtaking sights, it’s easy to see why Fresno is known as California’s year-round playground.
