The Lompoc Valley Center is located at the north end of the city of Lompoc at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) and "H" Street. The center opened in 1999. In 2014, a Public Safety Training Complex was added. All of the buildings are designed to be multifunctional as needs expand and change. The center features a contemporary design that embraces the natural character of the site through design and placement of the buildings. The LVC and the Public Safety Training Complex are situated on a beautiful 205-acre parcel that includes portions of Davis Creek.
