I like that Moreno Valley is surrounded by nature and there is a lot of history despite it only being a city for a short time.However, I wish that there was more to and more opportunities available.
It has become gang-infested. I use to be very proud of the city. I moved here for the military and decided to make this home, but 12 years after retirement I find myself looking at other cities and maybe another state.
nothing to do out here and violence is on the rise. turning into a mini LA from a violence perspective.
There is a lot of places to eat throughout the city. But there is an aged feel about the area. There is not many new buildings, and there is a big homeless population. There is a great place to hike (Two tree trail to the M). Drivers are always trying to race you at the light, weather they are young or old. And all types of cars.
This is not a good place to live. There is no diversity and there is barely any job opportunities and when you do get hired, the environment is poor and people are extremely rude. If I were you, I would not live here.
Over the years it seem as if many people with problems runningaway from the law , criminals , child molesters are movingout here causinggrowing peaceful families to move to a better area. My neighborhoodis quiet but i get out of my cave and see many homeless druggis all around the streets its getting congeated with the wrong people...it needs to be swept up clean throw out all bad peeps from this amazingcity that once was. Poor school educational....lack of law enforcement
Lots of people not enough space and schooling system could be better. Need more business to come here bring more jobs available for those who are looking for jobs.
the crime rate in moreno valley needs to change and the city needs to be cleaned up as far as bums and transients and crime
Wish this area had more opportunities for small business to thrive. I live in an area where it's nothing but big companies.
Moreno Valley has a booming population but is lacking in jobs and housing. This creates a crisis in which many people find themselves driving over an hour for work or sharing small living quarters with many people. Moreno Valley is a good place to live for people who are established and near retirement. However, for those who are beginning families or looking to start careers, Moreno Valley is desolate.The MVPD is very slow in response due to the high volume of people in the city. There is frequent crime in the city ranging from accidents to violent offenses. The schools are worth an inter district transfer, however I would not suggest beginning a family here just for the sake of the schools. Moreno Valley mall is satisfactory, however they lack many stores and a lot of residents make the journey into Riverside to the Tyler mall. The real estate market is atrocious, with most apartments charging a minimum of 1300 for a 2 bedroom apartment in an unsightly and unsettling neighborhood.
I used to live in Hawthorne, CA, before I moved to this city. I actually had heard great things before moving here too. However, after living here for about three years, I can say that my expectations of what I had thought would be a lovely place to move, is now reduced to nothing. There are no good entertainment getaways like the beach. And the weather is brutal during the fall and spring; as it is in the summer. So to speak, the temperature can climb to 114 degrees and that wouldn't even be counted as one of the hottest days. Another thing is that, when I moved out here I was told that housing was cheaper and jobs were plentiful. None of that is true.
There are a lot of places to shop and dine here but I would like for there to be more events in Moreno Valley that would bring the community together. There's nothing to do on the weekends and there's not a lot of places to have a nice family outing besides the restaurants.
Throughout the past 7 years living here in Moreno Valley I have discovered the good and bad in this city. With a population over 300,000, Moreno Valley has many places to offer the residents. I like the Canyon Springs Parkway town-center, and as well as the Sunnymead Ranch. Those are my two favorite places to go in Moreno Valley. I like the fact that there are multiple places to hike. What i would like to see changed in my city is better care of the environment in the low-income areas. The grass (if there is any) is brown and patchy and there are no lamplights for the dark areas which makes those neighborhoods a target. The lack of care and improvement on the low-income areas scream poverty which encourages residents to not take care of their lawns and homes themselves.
The city is becoming more and more populated with active and inactive gang members, and ex cons. This has been noticed by many members of the Moreno Valley community so a lot of neighborhoods have established neighborhood watches to minimize criminal activity and/or suspicious activity. The police are everywhere yet often times, they appear to be too late. Hopefully it will get better in the future.
Not enough police that care as well as budget cut affecting the quality of life.
I see this area being overcome with crime and gang life.
On the last page I described how much crime has been visible lately. There has bee a huge boost in crime in these past few years.
