California Consulting is honored that the City of Woodlake has asked us to provide grant writing services. We look forward to strategically working with them to help turn their vision into their legacy.

The community of Woodlake was founded in 1912 by Gilbert F. Stevenson, a wealthy land developer from southern California.  Stevenson purchased options on some 13,000 acres in the Woodlake area with the vision of establishing citrus orchards around a model planned community.  Stevenson first built a two-story brick building on the corner of Valencia and Naranjo Boulevards – still Woodlake’s main intersection to this day.  Stevenson went on to establish the beginnings of Woodlake’s infrastructure, installing streets, water and sewer lines and water wells.  Several residences began to spring up around the city’s core.  Stevenson’s company “The Woodlake Townsite Company” promoted the town extensively, claiming that it was “the fastest growing town in central California”.
