Even in a tourist-oriented county, Capitola stands out as a popular destination—as it has been since 1869, when Mr. F. A. Hihn established California’s first seaside resort community in the present Village and Depot Hill areas of the city. Events such as the Begonia Festival and the Capitola Art & Wine Festival continue to draw visitors. Year-round, Capitola’s 10,000 residents enjoy the city’s restaurants, entertainment, scenic views, and shops—including the county’s only indoor mall.
The City Council is composed of five councilmembers, all of whom are elected at large by all Capitola voters. Twice-monthly council meetings are open to the public.
The Planning Commission provides recommendations on General Plan amendments and rezoning requests, and interprets city planning policies and codes. Monthly meetings are open to the public.
