"A Family Town?"

Manteca, CA

Manteca is advertised as a "family town". However, recently with the inevitable rise in population, we have also seen a substantial increase in crime. From graffiti, to car theft, to violence, pretty much all forms of crime have risen. I have lived in Manteca my whole life. I was here from the time it was a small suburb of ten to twenty thousand, to where it is today (about 60,000 roughly) now with the problems that are associated to larger cities. It's underdeveloped infrastructure leaves no room for gang units and although the town's councilmen give the impression that Manteca is a "family town", they do little to protect the families within it.

It used to be nice - 2/5/2010

Manteca used to be nice before all the trashy people who don't have manners moved in. The city does not feel safe anymore, the council makes silly monetary decisions and there are gang and graffiti issues here now. Welcome to California~!

Manteca, small town charm with things to do - 2/28/2008

Manteca is growing in population but there is only rush hour traffic. There are homes for all family types from the full family to the active senior. Weather you like the more establish charming property to the newer more splendid place your sure to find your dream home. The Silicon Valley is continuing to grow and expand to the area for those who don't like to commute. But if you have a hard time finding "the extra time" you can do work, extend your learning or play games while taking the train, bus, or a van pool. There are more businesses coming to the area so you can just drive 5 minutes and there is the grocery store, movies, dining of all sorts, and shopping. There are also malls in the near by towns. Tennis or golf anyone? There is an area with multiple tennis courts, always clean and safe and the golf course is beautiful with mature shade trees for the advance lovers that play mid day - mid summer. There are multiple dog friendly parks to walk around too. If you feel like taking a bike ride on the main streets you can and not worry about being hit by a crazy drive. Speaking of driving, Manteca is pretty much in the middle of California. There are always those wonderful drives thru the orchards up to the mountains, or to the big cities or to the ocean. If you love wine sampling, spas, skiing, fishing or treasure hunting choose a direction, any direction! And you’re sure to find an adventure!

Crime increase - 3/28/2006

Manteca has been advertised as a "family town". Recently, however, Manteca has been the recipient of a much expected population increase. Due to the towns underdeveloped infrastructure, we have seen a tremendous increase in crime without the neccessary police to prevent it. Nearly all forms of crime have received an increase; from graffiti, to car theft, to violence, etc. with no funds for gang units. The town's councilmen continue to convince people to move there under the pretense of a "family town", yet they do little to protect the families within it.

Poorly Planned City - 2/24/2006

The city is extremely poorly planned and ugly. Schools are awful.
