WELCOME TO THE LOMPOC VISION
We are proud to provide you with information about our Lompoc Valley community. Quietly nestled between the ocean & Santa Barbara, Lompoc represents the essence of California — the art & culture of a big city & the heart & hospitality of a small, coastal town. Much like the glorious murals that grace its landscape, Lompoc is rooted in the past - its early heritage is embodied by the captivating historic commercial storefronts along the streets of Olde Towne Lompoc.
Lompoc prides itself by working as a partner and supporter of businesses of all sizes to help them achieve greater success. The community’s goals are clear: to remain financially secure, to create jobs, and to improve the quality of life for all who live and work here by promoting a healthy balance of safe neighborhoods, parks, community facilities and strong commercial and industrial areas. We invite you to spend some time in Lompoc. Whether in person or via our web page, we’re happy to have you. Lompoc is truly a magnificent place to live or visit!

This message is for Mr. Jordan. As a member of a Lompoc pioneer family I enjoy your publication focusing on the Lompoc Valley and it’s neighborhoods. I especially enjoy reading about the historical past and the people and families that settled and developed Lompoc. My mother, Shirley McCabe Phelps was a long time member of the Lompoc Historical Society and was an important member in developing the Spannie House and the displays of Lompoc past. It is important for the nurturing of a “sense of place” for people to learn and connect with the people of past generations. The early settlers, the farmers, merchants and miners that developed the town. Life in the Depression, WW II and Camp Cook. The immense change to the valley when Vandenberg AFB was constructed out on the mesa north of town, brought new life and direction to the people of the once compact farming community. The 60’s & 70’s were a time of growth and expansion and brought many changes to our community. I would ask that you include more articles that trace the history of the wonderful community of Lompoc.
“The Lompoc Vision is a monthly publication that validates the positive activities and events permeating the Lompoc Valley.” Our goal is to inform, educate and validate these activities & events. We reflect the good stuff, no politics & no negative news. Just think, finally… “Media on a positive only note!”
