L'Isle-d'Abeau (French pronunciation: ​[lil dabo]) is a commune in the department of Isère in southeastern France.[3] It lies 35 kilometres southeast from Lyon. It is part of the urban unit (agglomeration) of Bourgoin-Jallieu, and of the functional area of Lyon.[3]

Urban development[edit]

This little city was developed with the creation of the new town. It has 8 primary schools (1 is private), three middle schools, one high school and 2 IUT dedicated to informatic and multimedia jobs.

The municipality gave its name to a new town, whose creation was decided in 1970 to canalize the demographic growth of the Lyon agglomeration. It is organized in a New Agglomeration Union, together with Four, Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, Vaulx-Milieu and Villefontaine. Since January 1, 2007, the Union became the Communauté d'agglomération Porte de l'Isère (CAPI), with over 93,000 inhabitants in 21 municipalities.
