Moreno Valley, CA

Moreno Valley is a city of approximately 200,000, and is part of the Inland Empire, a region east of Los Angeles. It is a young city, incorporated in 1984 when voters of Edgemont, Sunnymead, and Moreno voted to band together as a way to control growth and govern themselves rather than remain under the jurisdiction of Riverside County. Today this 50-square-mile city is a booming metropolis of diverse young people. The city's phenomenal population growth from about 50,000 in 1984 can be attributed to its proximity to both Interstate 215 and the Moreno Valley Freeway (California Highway 60), which provides easy access to Los Angeles. Families comprise 84 percent of households in the city.

NEIGHBORHOODS AND DISTRICTS

As the city's population grew, housing prices also skyrocketed. Some of the city's major neighborhoods include:

ECONOMY AND INDUSTRIES

Because economic growth has not kept pace with population growth, Moreno Valley does not have many jobs within its city limits for a city of its size. Many residents commute to jobs in and around Los Angeles.

The largest economic sector is retail, followed by education. Construction and health care are also significant sectors.

The city's largest employer is March Air Reserve Base, which contains the 452nd unit, the Air Force Reserve Command's largest air mobility wing. The Riverside County Regional Medical Center is also a major employer.
