On behalf of the Board of Supervisor’s, we would like to welcome you to the official Webpage for the County of Imperial. It is our hope that you find this site useful as we have attempted to create a virtual County Administrative Center so you may access vital information of your interest. Imperial County provides a variety of quality services to visitors and its residents through its operating departments. We invite you to explore our site and get to know your county, Imperial County!
Imperial County is home to approximately 180,000 residents which live and work within its seven cities (Brawley, Calexico, Calipatria, El Centro, Holtville, Imperial and Westmorland) and eight unincorporated communities (Bombay Beach, Heber, Niland, Ocotillo, Palo Verde, Salton City, Seeley and Winterhaven). The county was the last to be established in California in 1907; however it is the ninth largest California County encompassing 4,284 square miles.
We have a rich agricultural heritage, which includes the production of half of our nation’s winter vegetables, an extensive amount of renewable resources, including geothermal, wind, and solar, a wide-range of cultural and outdoor recreational activities with hundreds of points of interest such as the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area, a magnet for off-road enthusiasts, and the Sonny Bono Salton Sea National Wildlife Refuge, a renowned birding site, and a lively population with frequent family-oriented community events.
