The Los Alamitos Community Foundation is a newly established organization that partners with the City of Los Alamitos to provide funding to enhance programs and services offered through the City to benefit the residents of Los Alamitos.


The Los Alamitos Community Foundation has identified three priorities to initially focus on in this first year including funding towards a Police Department Canine Program, an Urban Forest Program, and an Adaptive Recreation Program. Each of these programs will benefit the residents of Los Alamitos in the areas of crime prevention, environmental benefits and community inclusion and expansion of services for families with special needs. Visit the Foundation’s website at https://losalfoundation.org to donate today and begin your support of these valuable programs and services that will enhance the quality of life for residents in Los Alamitos.

Follow the Foundation’s Facebook and Instagram pages @losalfoundation to support and keep up with all the Foundation’s activities and events.

Losing even one person to drowning is too many. Last year, there were 44 fatal drownings in Orange County. Drowning is preventable if safeguards are taken. For this reason, Orange County Fire Authority launched a drowning prevention campaign focused on avoiding distractions while watching children near water and encouraging individuals to never swim alone.

Construction activity on Oak Street is wrapping up this week in anticipation to the start of the school year. Oak Street will be fully accessible with the start of school on Monday, August 15. Final street restoration and striping will take place on Saturday, August 13, and August 20.
