I've heard that the smog in and around San Dimas is heavy. Is this true?

Where can one reside for a job in San Dimas that is within a commutable distance (preferably within an hour drive in peak hours), safe, good schools and is a decent place to live in general and where the air is cleaner and healthier like the beach cities?

Thanks!

Yeah, San Dimas air can be pretty brutal, although it's gotten a lot better than it was 15 years ago when I used to go to Raging Waters with summer camp. For the most part it only gets bad when it's really hot and the wind blows in from the coast. That's not too often, since the heat usually occurs when wind blows from the deserts (Santa Anas).

Sadly, when you get inland, there really isn't any place that's immune from pollution, although like I said it's pretty decent most of the time (of course, I'm a Valley native, so I could just be more tolerant).

For the most part, though, the pollution will be far less anywhere, since San Dimas is in a small mountain pass, which means that the air traveling through it will be compressed a little and the particulates in the air will get more dense.

Check out Covina/West Covina, Azusa or Glendora. The pollution is still there, but it shouldn't be as bad as San Dimas. A bonus is that you'll be driving away from downtown LA in the morning to get to work and toward it going home... so you won't get hit so hard by the traffic.
