About The City of Orange
With a population of about 145,000 (2016 est) citizens, the City of Orange ranks as the 42th largest city in California. The City of Orange was incorporated way back in 1888.
The first inhabitants were the Gabrielios Native Americans. The first Europeans to arrive in the Orange area were the Spanish sometime in the mid 1700's. The lands about Orange were granted to a retired soldier for his excellent services in pursuance of Spanish expansion into New Mexico and California.
Orange grew up from the old Spanish Ranch called Santiago de Santa Ana. In 1848, Mexico ceded California to the United States, but a two Spanish families continued to control the lands. In a debt default and legal dispute that followed, a couple of Anglo-Americans bought the 1400 acre Rancho in 1869 in exchange for legal fees!
The two Los Angeles lawyers involved in the lawsuit were Alfred Beck Chapman and Andrew Glassell, also owned a lot of land in the area already. The subdivided their holdings into 40 to 120 acre plots and sold them off. Although Chapman called himself the "Father of Orange,"
the city's development is credited to his partner's brother William T. Glassell. William laid out the downtown area and built the first buildings of note in Richland.
According to Myth, Orange was named by the winner of a poker game.
According to legend, Chapman, Glassell and two others were playing a game of poker to resolve a dispute over the name of the city. Though its not know who won, the name was declared to be Orange (originally Richland)
The town of Orange began as a farming community, although it took a while for the new settlers to figure out what and how to grow. The first crops were grains, oats, barley and corn. In a few more years, grapes and raisins became a successful cash crop. The ever innovative farmers tried to grow tropical fruits like bananas and pineapples without much success. Eventually, around 1873, they tried Oranges and Bingo, orange groves were planted in abundance.
The community took off in earnest with the arrival of the Railroad in 1880. With cheap fares available, thousands of visitors flocked to the area with many buying land in the process. By 1890, Orange had it all, asphalt, street lights, streetcars, a library, newspaper and picturesque downtown plaza.
Some say that the city was incorporated to stop a saloon from operating in town. Orange became one of the first cities to prohibit the sale and manufacture of alcoholic beverages.
The Orange groves had survived cold weather, floods and drought and by the 1920's, citrus was the town's biggest crop. One packing house alone shipped out nearly one million boxes of oranges in a year. In the late 1930's cold weather and floods greatly damaged the crops and roadways.
World War II brought the military to town and bringing with it, desperately needed jobs. After the war, many soldiers returned to Orange to make it home, resulting in the biggest expansion the entire history of the city.
In the early days, City Hall was very smart. Since the 1950's, city planners have decided to make sure the city did not grow too fast and that there was a good mix of residential, agricultural, industrial businesses to provide ample jobs for the citizens and a afford a reasonable tax base. It was a good plan and it worked, that is until NAFTA and the Federal Government started raising taxes and forcing most of American core businesses overseas. Today, the City of Orange lacks self sufficiency in just about every core area. Almost all of the top 10 employers in town are in the public and healthcare sectors.

The Latest Cannabis Ordinances, MMJ Permits, Marijuana Zoning, Meetings and News
Villa Park recently joined a handful of cities across Orange County choosing to add stricter regulations on marijuana activities. On Jan. 1, 2016 an amendment to the Villa Park Municipal Code went into effect, prohibiting commercial cannabis activities from entering the city. Pot shops, delivery services and the growing of weed are all banned under the new law, which passed 5-0 at the city’s December council meeting.
The law is in reaction to recent state legislation that, effective March 1, would give the state the power to license growers and dispensary owners. Cities are allowed to pass their own prohibitions, if it’s done by March 1.

According to city code, the punishment could be hundreds of dollars worth of fines and the violation amounts to a misdemeanor.
At a city council meeting in April 2016, the city attorney for Orange mentioned what contributing might mean:
"The individual has to be doing something more than just walking by at the time [...] Some indication that they are contributing to the party. They may be with their red cup or they're jumping up and down to the music or whatever it might be, but, something so an officer has to observe something more than just mere presence."
