On March 1, 1960, the township of Los Alamitos became a chartered city. Since then it has advanced both as a residential and business community. It is debt-free, with excellent recreational and park facilities, a top-notch police force and an enthusiastic Chamber of Commerce. All in all, the city of Little Cottonwoods is best described as “A Little Jewel of a City.” Its city seal reflects its ancestry; its official flower, the Daisy, reflects its youth, since it was named by a young boy who nominated the bloom because it was his mother’s favorite flower. With its outstanding schools, friendly neighbors and strategic location as the crossroads of two of the area’s principal freeways, Los Alamitos has nowhere to go but up!
