Below is some general information about Santa Clara:

Santa Clara, founded in 1777 and incorporated in 1852, is a city in Santa Clara County, in the U.S. state of California. Located 45 miles (72 km) southeast of San Francisco, the city is the site of the eighth of 21 California missions, Mission Santa Clara de As’s, and was named after the mission. The Mission and Mission Gardens are located on the grounds of Santa Clara University. Saint Clare is the patron saint of Santa Clara. The population was 116,468 at the 2010 census. It is the ninth most populous city in the San Francisco Bay Area. Santa Clara is located in the center of Silicon Valley and is home to the headquarters of several high-tech companies. It is the site of Levi’s Stadium, the future home of the National Football League’s San Francisco 49ers and site of Super Bowl L. It is also home to Santa Clara University, the oldest institution of higher learning in the state of California. The city is bordered by San Jose, Sunnyvale and Cupertino.

Santa Clara is drained by three seasonal creeks, all of which empty into the southern portion of San Francisco Bay; these creeks are San Tomas Aquino Creek, Saratoga Creek, and Calabazas Creek. There are some significant biological resources within the city including habitat for the burrowing owl, a species of special concern in California due to reduction in habitat from urban development during the latter 20th century. This owl uses burrows created by ground squirrels and prefers generally level grasslands and even disturbed areas. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city covers an area of 18.4 square miles, all of it land. Despite being located only 45 miles from San Francisco, Santa Clara’s climate is rather distinctÑparticularly during the summer, when it is generally warm and sunny, as opposed to the foggy and cool conditions one normally finds in San Francisco. The average daily temperatures in July range from 82 ¡F to 53 ¡F. Winters are mild, with the mean daily temperatures in January ranging from 58 ¡F to 38 ¡F. Most of the annual rainfall comes in the winter months; the summer months are generally rainless.

The 2010 United States Census reported that Santa Clara had a population of 116,468. The population density was 6,327.3 people per square mile. The racial makeup of Santa Clara was 52,359 (45.0%) White, 3,154 (2.7%) African American, 579 (0.5%) Native American, 43,889 (37.7%) Asian (13.6% Indian, 6.9% Chinese, 6.2% Filipino, 3.9% Vietnamese, 3.0% Korean, 1.5% Japanese, 0.8% Pakistani, 0.1% Bangladeshi, 0.1% Thai), 651 (0.6%) Pacific Islander, 9,624 (8.3%) from other races, and 6,212 (5.3%) from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 22,589 persons (19.4%); 14.6% of Santa Clara is Mexican, 0.7% Salvadoran, 0.4% Puerto Rican, 0.4% Peruvian, 0.3% Nicaraguan, and 0.3% Guatemalan. The Census reported that 113,272 people (97.3% of the population) lived in households, 2,860 (2.5%) lived in non-institutionalized group quarters, and 336 (0.3%) were institutionalized.

Santa Clara owns and operates an electric utility called Silicon Valley Power. In 2005 Silicon Valley Power brought online the Donald Von Raesfeld (DVR) Power Plant. The new combined cycle gas turbine plant produces 147 megawatts of electricity for the city and its residents. As a result, the going rate for electricity in Santa Clara is considerably cheaper than that offered by Northern California’s dominant utility, Pacific Gas and Electric. Affymetrix, Agilent Technologies, Applied Materials, Atheros, Extreme Networks, Intel, Intevac, McAfee, National Semiconductor, Nvidia, OmniVision Technologies, Palo Alto Networks, PMC-Sierra, Rovi, Synaptics, Marvell Technology Group and Trident Microsystems are among the companies headquartered in Santa Clara. Namco Bandai Games’s United States office is in Santa Clara.

Santa Clara is also home to California’s Great America, an amusement park currently operated by Cedar Fair, L.P. Nearby is the Santa Clara Convention Center, one of Silicon Valley’s largest event and meeting venues. Santa Clara also offers several museums such as the Intel Museum, Triton Museum of Art, and the Harris – Lass historical house. Near the above mentioned Mission College is the Our Lady of Peace Shrine notable for its thirty-two foot tall statue which is viewable from Highway 101 in a manner similar to the statue of Junipero Serra in Hillsborough, CA. The Mission City Center for Performing Arts is the city’s venue for theatrical productions and entertainment. The San Francisco 49ers NFL football team has its headquarters and practice facilities in Santa Clara. On Wednesday, November 8, 2006, the 49ers announced their intention to move the team to Santa Clara in time for the fall 2014 season, after negotiations failed with the city of San Francisco to build a new stadium
