About City of Signal Hill
The City of Signal Hill is located just 30 miles south of downtown Los Angeles and within four miles of the Pacific Ocean. Well-known for the discovery of a vast oil field in 1921 and its subsequent “oil history,” Signal Hill also claims the only accessible high ground for miles around: a 300-foot hilltop that gives the City its name. Completely surrounded by the City of Long Beach, Signal Hill was incorporated in 1924. The City offers residential, retail and industrial residents the benefits of a full-service municipality while preserving the feeling of a small hometown.
Encompassing 2.2 square miles, Signal Hill has a population of 11,465 full-time residents and a daytime population of over 40,000. With its central location, this vibrant City offers residents and visitors a wide range of amenities.
