Crime & Safety
I have been living in Arvin, California my entire existence. This city is my hometown and I love my hometown. But there is some disadvantages of living in this small town. First, and most importantly is air quality. This city is well known for having the worst air pollution in California. Hence, this will/ can cause illnesses in its residents. Secondly, is job opportunities. This small town mostly consists of small markets. These small markets can only employ a small amount of individuals. Therefore, this might be one of the biggest reason of unemployment and crime rate here. This city is full of amazing people, this city and its residents deserve more.
Arvin, CA is a small city about 25 minutes away from Bakersfield, CA. It's a very knit community with friendly faces and welcoming enviorment. Most stores are only a walking distance from the neighborhoods. The only thing that would make Arvin better would be if they would build houses or small shopping centers in the empty dirt fields.
I have lived in Arvin for about 7 years It's a very small town but people here are very friendly and honest. My husband has lost his wallet 3 times since we've lived here and all 3 times it was returned to him intact ..That says a lot about a community. The charter school here is Grimmway Academy and I don't know who loves it more me or my children! Yes it's small town with not much to do but in my opinion it's a town worth living in.
