The Central California town that keeps sinking

The very ground upon which Corcoran was built is steadily collapsing, a situation caused primarily by agriculture.

  • Corcoran, California is listed by the state as a severely disadvantaged community with a median income of $40,000 a year. The city council has been working to attract growth including refurbishing the downtown by improving sidewalks, adding benches, parklets and other public amenities.
