Welcome to the City Manager’s Office

Milpitas is a flourishing community with a very diverse and inclusive resident and business population. Often referred to as the Crossroads of Silicon Valley, the City is situated between major thoroughfares in the Bay Area and considered a highly desirable location for world-class technology companies seeking to build a central base of operations. Today Milpitas is recognized as one of the top 10 Best Cities for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) workers. The US Census Bureau’s 2018 survey reveals Milpitas as the 8th fastest growing city in the United States and the 2nd fastest growing in California. With the addition of the new Milpitas Transit Center offering BART, light rail, and bus service, and multiple new mixed-use development projects, the City is at the forefront of building the next generation economy.

The City of Milpitas operates under a Council-Manager form of government establishing the City Council as the legislative and executive body. The City Manager’s Office manages the day to day operations of City Government, recommends strategic direction and solutions to City Council, submits for adoption a balanced budget, monitors legislative activities that impact the City and implements the City’s general policy guidelines.

We are devoted to providing unparalleled customer service to all our residents, businesses and guests. We care deeply about what you think and want to ensure that that initiatives and programs reflect the values of our community. Please let us know how we can be better.
