With a population of 112,000, Norwalk ranks as California's 58th largest city. This LA suburban city was founded in the late 1800's, but took another hundred years to incorporate (1957).
The Norwalk area was originally settled by Spanish settlers who set up several prosperous missions. A Senior Manuel Nieto, a Spanish soldier, was deeded a Spanish land grant (Rancho Los Nietos) in 1784 and included all the lands of present day Norwalk. After the Mexican American War of 1848. Nieto's Rancho was subdivided and put up for sale. Buyers flocked to buy the fertile lands sporting incredibly huge sycamore trees.
In 1873, the Railroad came to town, and local bigwigs, the Sproul family, sold land on the stipulatio that it be used as a passenger stop, thus guaranteeing the community's economic future. Locals would promote tours to "see the country", which is to say, invest or buy land.
By the 1890's the city prospered with many fine houses intermixed within successful agricultural operations.
With many thanks to it's Dutch residents, by 1900, Norwalk was established as a major dairy center with nearly every major farm carrying dairy. Sugar beet farming became the biggest cash crop in town.
After the 1950s, the demographics shifted from predominantly white to include generous portions of the Hispanic population. Norwalk gradually became a non-entity as the town grew significantly as a residential area, but diminished greatly as a producer or manufacturer of any essential goods. Today, almost all the jobs are in the public sector, schools, city, hospitals, police.

Though the state allows for such enterprises, the Norwalk Zoning Commission is considering a nine-month moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries.
Commissioners do not appear to be taking the stance for political or philosophical reasons, but they want to make sure all city agencies, particularly police and planning and zoning, are in agreement about them, reports The Hour.
The nearby communities of Stamford, Wilton and Westport all have similar moratoriums, and other communities are considering their own.
Flying under the radar screen has been a Zoning Commission discussion about medical marijuana. Not that they have said much. At the May 12 Zoning Committee meeting, Acting Planning and Zoning Director Mike Wrinn said he was trying to get a possible moratorium on the growing of medical marijuana in Norwalk to a public hearing.....
Those wishing to produce medical marijuana or open a licensed medical marijuana dispensary in Norwalk could be waiting for a while.
