About Avalon

Welcome to the City of Avalon web site.  We are constantly striving to use this tool to provide useful information to residents and visitors.  Avalon is a full service city providing law enforcement, fire protection, harbor operations, ambulance, planning, building, sewer, trash, cemetery, public works, and many other city services.  Most of the information in this site relates to these functions.

The Avalon City Council encourages citizen involvement in city government.  Residents, property owners, and visitors are encouraged to participate in the governing process through our City Council meetings, boards and commissions.  Information about these meetings is available on this website.

A visitors Center is operated by the Catalina Island Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau and is located at 1 Green Pleasure Pier in Avalon.

The City provides substantial funding to the Chamber to act as the official Destination Marketing & Management office for the Island and as Film Liaisons. People seeking information about visiting Catalina Island may find the Chamber and Visitors Bureau website useful in arranging accommodations, transportation, tours, and activities. A Chamber web cam is also available to the public.

Catalina Island is a national treasure.  Its interior and waters provide a unique and interesting natural environment.  The Catalina Island Conservancy is the primary steward of these resources.
