Burbank is a city in Los Angeles County situated in two distinct areas, with its downtown, civic center and key neighborhoods nestled on the slopes and foothills that meet the Verdugo Mountains, and other areas located in flatlands at the eastern end of the San Fernando Valley. Today, nearly 108,000 residents populate this media and entertainment-oriented city. Burbank prides itself on a high quality of life, combining 21st century technology with a small-town atmosphere.
Incorporated in 1911, the city of Burbank experienced significant growth in residential, commercial, and industrial development as well as an increasing population during the early 20th century. In 1917, the Moreland Truck Company, the city's first significant industry, relocated to Burbank. Soon after, Lockheed Aircraft Company made its headquarters in Burbank. By 1940, Warner Brothers, Columbia Pictures and Walt Disney Studios all had facilities in Burbank. During the 1960s and 1970s, more of the Hollywood entertainment industry relocated to Burbank, among them was the National Broadcasting Company (NBC), earning the city the nickname, "Media Capital of the World". In 1978, the tri-city Airport Authority purchased the Lockheed Airport. In 2003, the airport was renamed the Bob Hope Airport, after the actor's death. Today, the Bob Hope Airport is one of the fastest growing airports in the nation. The growth of the airport coupled with the entertainment industry, helped transform Burbank into a center for business and tourism.
