Projects + Information

Although Ukiah is a smaller city, we have big ideas when it comes to business development, recreation programs, and providing superior municipal services to our residents. In addition to the extensive number of services currently provided by the City, our staff will be working on a host of projects including those shown below. In addition to being a full service city, Ukiah also manages its own electric utility and airport. As the largest city in Mendocino County, we have become the leader in recreational events for the family, solid improvements in our municipal infrastructure, and in redevelopment programs to enhance our business climate.
