The city is economically independent, prides itself in personalized service to the residents and business community and strives to maintain a high degree of livability for its residents. (more)
The history of the community and the name "Signal Hill" itself date back to World War II when the area's hilltop location was used to signal ships in the Long Beach Harbor and warn of air attacks. For many years, the community was also a major oil producer with hundreds of wells producing crude for area refineries. As the Long Beach area grew in popularity, the open space that Signal Hill provided became a target of developers. The community's Redevelopment Agency was formed in 1974 to eliminate blighted areas in the city and establish a strong, balanced tax base for future years. Real estate options in Signal Hill consist of single family homes, townhouses, condos, and waterfront properties.
