Loomis Basin Chamber of Commerce Newsletter
January 2017
President's Message:
My husband and I, with kids in tow, relocated to the Loomis Basin from Southern California in 1994. Not long after discovering the local lifestyle and sense of community afforded those living here, my husband penned the song “Where’s Loomis?”  People may have heard about Loomis but were not sure where this gem was to be found.
Fast forward to 2016 – Loomis has maintained the rural lifestyle we all enjoy and out tight-knit community is even stronger today. The difference today is that the Loomis Basin is regarded as a true asset of Placer County, no longer unknown but envied. Our homes are highly sought after by those wanting to move to Loomis, Penryn or Newcastle to experience our way of life, our schools and our small-town environment. New businesses are clamoring to open their doors within our community to experience our entrepreneurial environment, and, I must mention, the tourists. 
Yes, I said tourists. Loomis has become a designation. Tourists arrive on buses, motorcycles, bikes, cars and limousines. They come to experience our small-town Main Street and its many offerings, including restaurants, shopping, wine tasting, breweries, events and locally grown produce. 
2017 will bring about our long-awaited downtown street and sidewalk improvements, which will enhance the walkability of our Main Street area. Our mural program will be completed with a Historical Walking Tour preserving our local agricultural heritage. The Chamber will be launching new incentives and programs to support our Loomis Basin businesses through continued growth and prosperity.
Though the question of “Where’s Loomis?” has been answered, and we have been found, our local Loomis Basin businesses are the heart of our community. Time after time, these businesses step up to support our schools, athletic teams, churches, community events and charitable organizations. Our goal at the Chamber is connecting business to businesses within the Loomis Basin. We are here to work hard for our members and provide unwavering support while enhancing the Loomis Basin community, the place we call home.
