Over the years, Clovis city officials have gone to great lengths to build a city to serve a variety of residents. The efforts have paid off. People from all walks of life make Clovis their home.
Not too many years ago, Clovis primarily was known as a community for young families. That remains true today. Many young couples eager to set down roots still select their first home in Clovis. But as those families – young a few years back – age, they’ve decided to stay put in Clovis, too. And so Clovis is home to families with older children as well as families experiencing the empty-nest syndrome. Seniors and young, single adults find their niche here, too. A wide selection of mobile home parks and apartment complexes offer a variety of housing options.
In all housing selections, there are varieties in price ranges, too. Working-class families to seniors on fixed incomes to professional, double-income families settle here. There are choices in lot sizes, ranging from large acreage, larger-estate lots, to conventional single-family parcels and townhouses and condominiums.
And so Clovis, where there are plans for the future, has something for everyone.
