Going downhill fast !
We have lived in Yucaipa since 1983. We moved here to escape urban sprawl and
congestion. It was pretty nice for about 10 years and then the city "fathers" decided that building over 3000 homes and putting in a golf course and of course,vetoing any decent shopping to support these homes was the way to go. We are now overun with Orange County transplants who have brought their Hummers and Benzes and Starbucks. Traffic is terrible,no planning for growth, just let the developers pay their fees jam the overpriced homes in and leave. Just east, the City of Beaumont is even worse.
Soon, you will not be able to tell where one city ends and another begins.Great place if you dig rude people,congestion,traffic,no shopping,overpriced housing.I for one have had my fill.
