Merced, California

The city of Merced occupies 23.3 square miles in the San Joaquin Valley of Northern California and is currently home to more than 78,000 residents. Incorporated in 1889, the city was named after the Merced River. It serves as the county seat of Merced County. It is a charter city that operates under a council-manager government. Merced, informally known as the "Gateway to Yosemite", is less than two hours by automobile from Yosemite National Park. The University of California, Merced (UCM) campus and Merced College are located in Merced.

Merced’s economy has traditionally relied upon agribusiness and upon the presence of Castle Air Force Base. Over the past twenty years, more diversified industry has entered the area, including printing, fiberglass boat building, warehousing and distribution, and packaging industries. Castle Air Force Base closed after the end of the Cold War in 1995. This has affected residential real estate and some sectors of the retail and service economies, but overall retail has continued to increase.
