Livermore (formerly Livermores, Livermore Ranch, and Nottingham)[5] is a city in Alameda County. The estimated population as of 2011 was 82,039. Livermore is located on the eastern edge of California's San Francisco Bay Area.

Livermore was founded by William Mendenhall and named after Robert Livermore, his friend and a local rancher who settled in the area in the 1830s. Livermore is the home of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, for which the chemical element livermorium is named (and thus, placing the city's name in the periodic table).[6] Its south side, home to local vineyards, has developed several executive subdivisions near Ruby Hill. The city has also redeveloped its downtown district. The city is considered part of the Tri-Valley area, including Amador, Livermore and San Ramon Valleys.

According to the latest U.S. Census information, Livermore is the third wealthiest midsize city in the nation. In 2005, the median household income in Livermore was $96,632, which ranked it the third highest income midsize city (between 65,000 and 249,999 people) just behind number two Newport Beach, CA ($97,428) and Livermore's western neighbor, Pleasanton, CA ($101,022).

Geography

Watercourses draining the city of Livermore include Arroyo Mocho, Arroyo del Valle, Arroyo Seco and Arroyo Las Positas. The principal aquifer underlying the city is the Mocho Subbasin. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 25.2 square miles (65 km2), over 99% of it land. Several local seismic areas of activity lie near the city including the Greenville Fault and the Tesla Fault.

Climate

Livermore has a Mediterranean climate with warm to hot, dry summers and mild to cool, wet winters (Köppen climate classification Csa). Summer daytime temperatures average in the mid-to-upper 80s (28 to 32°C), but sometimes reach 100 °F (38 °C) and can occasionally approach 110 °F (43 °C). Nights, however, are cool, with lows in the 50s and 60s (10 to 21°C). The period from June to September is extremely dry and is characterized by typically clear skies, but in late summer, subtropical moisture occasionally surges into the Livermore Valley, bringing high humidity, monsoon clouds, and, less commonly, thunderstorms.

Most of the 15.2 inches (390 mm) of annual rainfall comes in the winter, but there are still many bright, sunny days during this period. The coldest months are December and January, with a mean high of 56 °F (13 °C) and with frequent frost on clear mornings. The temperature can drop to as low as the mid 20s (−3 to −5°C) on an exceptionally cold night. Snow is rare, but light dustings do very seldom occur.

The record high temperature is 115 °F (46 °C), recorded on September 3, 1950, and the record low temperature is 18 °F (−8 °C), recorded on January 5, 1961 and December 9, 1972.[7]

History and culture

History

Old fire station in downtown Livermore
This is a picture of a stagecoach, similar to those used in Livermore in the 1800s. Livermore, California as of 24 February 2010

Before its incorporation under the Roman Catholic Mission San Jose in 1796 and prior to the arrival of the Spanish in the 18th century, the Livermore area was home to the Ohlone (or Costanoan) native people. The Livermore-Amador Valley was primarily used as grazing land for Mission San Jose's thousands of cattle and sheep until secularization of California missions from 1834 to 1837 opened great amounts of land throughout California for Mexican land grants. The fourth and second largest of these land grants were the Rancho Las Positas grant, made to rancher Robert Livermore, a naturalized Mexican citizen of English birth, and Jose Noriega in 1839. Robert Livermore was as much interested in viticulture and horticulture as he was in cattle and horses. In 1846 he was the first in the area to plant both vineyards as well as orchards of pears and olives. The first building on his ranch was an adobe on Las Positas Creek. In 1849 a two-story "Around the Horn" house was added and was believed to be the first wooden building in the valley.

After the discovery of gold in California, Livermore became a popular 'first day' stopping point for prospectors headed for the Mother Lode country. It was usually one day's journey by horse or stagecoach when starting from San Jose, California.

Robert Livermore died in 1858 before the establishment of the town that bears his name. His ranch included much of the present-day city. The city itself was established in 1869 by William Mendenhall, who had met Robert Livermore while marching through the valley with Fremont's California Battalion. Livermore was officially incorporated on April 15, 1876. During Livermore's early years, it was also quite well known for the many large hotels that graced the downtown streetcorners, before new buildings replaced them. Livermore is also notable for the Italian families that played a role in the formation of its wineries. Since it has a Mediterranean climate, the Italian families found it a good location to grow wine grapes, which also helped contribute to the development of the early city.

The Livermore Ranch post office operated from 1851 to 1853.[5] The Nottingham post office opened in 1869, the name was changed to Livermore in 1870.[5]

Livermore originally had a Boot Hill called the Old Knoll Cemetery.[9]

In 1909 the Livermore Carnegie Library opend.

In 1942, the U. S. government bought 692 acres (2.80 km2) of ranch land, bounded by Vasco and Greenville roads and East Avenue, and built the Livermore Naval Air Station. This facility operated until it was decommissioned in 1946. In 1952, the government established Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory on the site.[10] In 1956, the California campus of Sandia National Laboratories opened up across East Avenue.

Culture

The Livermore Hindu Temple

Livermore's culture retains some vestiges of the farming and ranching traditions that have existed in the valley since the time of Robert Livermore, but now largely reflects a suburban population. This culture was documented in the photoessay Suburbia in 1973 by then native photographer Bill Owens, with the photos shown in numerous exhibits.[11] Livermore has a strong blue-collar element, as well as many professionals who work at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the high tech industries within the Bay Area. Recent housing development has included the addition of hundreds of million dollar homes set amongst the southside's vineyards as well as a multi-million dollar renovation of the downtown area. The renovations included the Livermore Cinemas, the Bankhead Theatre, a parking structure, and office buildings. There is a state-of-the-art library (with a controversial front mosaic[12] by Maria Alquilar) that opened in 2004 and the Livermore Airport.

In 2010, proposed projects included extension of BART high-speed rail system with an underground downtown station and a regional performing arts center between Livermore Avenue and L Street.[13]

According to the latest U.S. Census information, Livermore is the third wealthiest midsize city in the nation. In 2005, the median household income in Livermore was $96,632, which ranked it the third highest income midsize city (between 65,000 and 249,999 people) just behind number two Newport Beach, CA ($97,428) and Livermore's western neighbor, Pleasanton, CA ($101,022).[14]

Arts organizations supported by the city include the Livermore-Amador Symphony, Del Valle Fine Arts, producer of classical music events, and in the valley at large, the Valley Concert Chorale, Livermore Valley Opera and the Valley Dance Theatre, a classical ballet company. Since 1918 Livermore has hosted the Livermore Rodeo,[15] called the "World's Fastest Rodeo," that claims it has more riders per hour than any other event of its type.

Livermore's Farmer's Market at Carnegie Park downtown

Places of worship include the Iglesia Ni Cristo on Gardella Plaza, First Presbyterian Church, the Unitarian Universalist Church in Livermore, Asbury United Methodist Church, the Mar Thoma Syrian Church (the first Indian Christian Church in San Francisco Bay Area[citation needed]), a Hindu temple, Islamic Center of Livermore, Saint Innocent Orthodox Church, Saint Charles Borromeo Catholic, Cornerstone Fellowship, and St. Michael Church Catholic, which is the oldest local parish, having held its first services on August 25, 1878.

Camp Wonder opened its first summer camp for children with special medical needs in Livermore in 2001.

Districts of Livermore

One of the largest districts is Springtown, the northeast area of the city north of Interstate 580. Originally conceived as a retirement community in the early 1960s, Springtown has many of the city's hotels and a public golf course.

The downtown, or Central district has two movie theaters, a community theater, and space for open air concerts.

The North Livermore district is North of the Union Pacific Railroad that cuts through the Downtown.

The South Livermore district has over 40 wineries.

Livermore Police Department

The Livermore Police Department (LPD) was established in 1876, at that time the only law enforcement agency in the San Francisco Bay Area besides the San Francisco Police Department. The current Chief of Police is Steve Sweeney. In July 2008, LPD opened its first substation in New Downtown Livermore, known as the Central Station or Downtown Office. The LPD has had the best S.W.A.T. Team in Northern California, due to the team winning the Northern California S.W.A.T Competition.[citation needed]

Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department

The Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department provides fire and advanced life support services to the cities of Livermore and Pleasanton. It serves an estimated population of 150,000 (Including 78,000 in Livermore, and 71,000 in Pleasanton) over 44 square miles (114 km2) (23 square miles (60 km2) in Livermore, and 21 square miles (54 km2) in Pleasanton) with an operating budget of $28,000,000. In 2008 the LPFD responded to approximately 11,000 calls for service. The International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Local 1974 represents its 112 members.

World's longest lasting light bulb

The city is noted for one world record. A 110+ year old 4-watt light bulb, called the Centennial Light, housed in the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department main station, is still burning. It glows dimly, but still functions as a light bulb.[20] The Guinness Book of World Records, Ripley's Believe It or Not, and General Electric have concluded that the bulb has been burning continuously since 1901 with the exception of power failures and three times it was disconnected for moves to new stations. The light bulb was manufactured by the Shelby Electric Company and was hand blown with a carbon filament.

Industry

Laboratories

Livermore is the home of two DOE National Laboratories. The laboratories are known worldwide, and attract significant attention both for their scientific research and for their major roles in developing the United States nuclear arsenal.

The largest employer in Livermore is the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), a federally funded research and development center funded by the Department of Energy which is operated by a limited liability consortium named Lawrence Livermore National Security, LLC (LLNS), a joint venture company of Bechtel National, the University of California, BWX Technologies, URS, and Battelle. The lab is the location of the supercomputer Blue Gene/L. The lab was the co-discoverers of new superheavy elements 113, 114, 115, 116, 117, and 118. The chemical element with atomic number 116, previously known as ununhexium, was given the name livermorium, after the laboratory, in 2012.

LLNL is the location of the world's most powerful laser, the National Ignition Facility (NIF), a project designed to create the first sustained, controlled nuclear fusion reaction, which would generate fusion power, a potential energy source.

Livermore is also the California site of Sandia National Laboratories, which is operated by Sandia Corporation, a Lockheed-Martin owned Company.

i-GATE

The two National Laboratories, along with other stakeholders, including the University of California, Berkeley, UC Davis, and regional cities, partnered to create the i-GATE (Innovation for Green Advanced Transportation Excellence) National Energy Systems Technology (NEST) Incubator. The 15,000-square-foot (1,400 m2) i-GATE NEST campus was created to stimulate large-scale, high-tech business development around the two labs. Initial focus of the campus will be solar energy, fuel cells, biofuels, LED lighting, and other related technologies.[21][22]

Wine

One of California’s oldest wine regions, the Livermore Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA) played a pivotal role in shaping California’s wine industry. Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes in the Livermore Valley in the 1760s. In the 1840s, California pioneers looking for outstanding vineyard sites began planting grapes in the region. Robert Livermore planted the first commercial vines in the 1840s. Pioneer winemakers C. H. Wente, James Concannon, and Charles Wetmore recognized the area’s winegrowing potential and founded their wineries in the early 1880s.[23] The Wine Group has administrative offices just outside of Livermore, at the Concannon Vineyard.

A sign on the I-580 freeway in Livermore.

Interstate 580 is Livermore's primary freeway. Linking the rest of the San Francisco Bay Area to the west, I-580 passes through Livermore before it heads east through the Altamont Pass to the Central Valley. Highway 84 heads southwest from I-580 to Fremont. Vasco Road, an unnumbered highway that is maintained by Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, connects Livermore to Brentwood, California and the Sacramento – San Joaquin River Delta area.

Livermore Municipal Airport, a general aviation airport, is located there.

The WHEELS bus system operates in Livermore and to the neighboring cities of Pleasanton and Dublin.

Livermore has two stations for the Altamont Commuter Express (ACE), a commuter train which runs from Stockton to San Jose. One station is at Vasco Road, and the other in downtown Livermore at its Transit Center, which also connects to the WHEELS bus system.

There is a petition drive to bring the Bay Area Rapid Transit system to Livermore.The group that started the petition was founded by the former mayor of Dublin, Linda Jeffery Sailors, who was successful in extending BART to Dublin/Pleasanton, currently the closest station to Livermore.[26] If BART does come to Livermore, the system would connect to the ACE Train.

Media

Radio station KKIQ is licensed in Livermore and broadcasts in the Tri-City area.

Landmarks

Livermore has five landmarks listed on the National Register of Historic Places: the Bank of Italy Building, the Hagemann Ranch Historic District, the D. J. Murphy House, the Livermore Carnegie Library and Park and Ravenswood Historic Site.

  16. ^ All data are derived from the United States Census Bureau reports from the 2010 United States Census, and are accessible on-line here. The data on unmarried partnerships and same-sex married couples are from the Census report DEC_10_SF1_PCT15. All other housing and population data are from Census report DEC_10_DP_DPDP1. Both reports are viewable online or downloadable in a zip file containing a comma-delimited data file. The area data, from which densities are calculated, are available on-line here. Percentage totals may not add to 100% due to rounding. The Census Bureau defines families as a household containing one or more people related to the householder by birth, opposite-sex marriage, or adoption. People living in group quarters are tabulated by the Census Bureau as neither owners nor renters. For further details, see the text files accompanying the data files containing the Census reports mentioned above.
