Review of Citrus Heights, California

Going Downhill
Star Rating - 2/4/2018
When we moved into Citrus Heights 7 years ago, it felt like it was on the upswing and we were comfortable taking daily walks through many neighborhoods. Now, we find petty thefts, car break-ins, and drug paraphernalia (and/or regular trash) on the ground make our walks feel much less safe and pleasant. Homelessness is increasing, and the squeeze of the California real estate/rental market means that the median income of people moving into the city has decreased. When I shop at Sprouts, I'm always wary of being approached in the parking lot by someone looking for a handout. There are no good non-chain restaurants nearby, so we have to go Roseville, Folsom, etc. And the hot weather is terrible, but that's true for the whole Sacramento area.
