Me and my famliy are planning on moving somewhere in the Inland Empire and are planning on Chino Hills because of low crime. We have already seen house prices there and we can afford it. BUT we have a daughter with serious asthma and we want to move somewhere in the Inland Empire with the lowest pollution levels in the Inland Empire, or if anyone knows somewhere with low pollution near in the Inland Empire.PLEASE HELP!!

You can search here, but pollution is bad in most of inland so cali.
Moderator cut: linking to competitors sites is not allowed

Chino Hills air quality gets an 11 out of 100, 100 being best, national average is 48.
Inland Emprire is huge. (It includes:Riverside and San Bernardino Counties and the Pomona Valley). So, to help you need to be a bit more specific. San Bernardino County by itself is the largest county in the contiguous United States by area.

I meant the parts of the Inland Empire closer to L.A. Example: riverside,corona, hemet, ontario, rancho cucamonga. I dont want any places to far away or on or past those huge mountains Example of places too far away that I don't want: Vitcorville, Hesperia, Palm Springs.
Hope this is more specific

SoCal, that helps! Riverside County generally has better air quality.
Victorville and Hemet are actually the same distance from LA about 90 miles each.
This might help: South Coast Air Quality Management District :

I hope that helps.

Try looking into a place called San Dimas California. It is in the inland empire
a very quite and safe small town atmosphere. Very very very low crime. The town has a western feel. Lots of activities. Homes are few and far between. Not many people sell there. It is about a 10 minute drive to Chino Hills San Dimas has its own lake and water park as well as a small zoo within San Dimas Canyon Park. Well worth the search.

I love Chino Hills. It's a small clean cute town. I'm surprised about the air quality you're saying, but it's possible, 'cause there are so many cattle farms east of Chino (which is neighbouring Chino Hills).
San Dimas is nice too. And there are a few other small towns like this: Walnut, Anaheim Hills, etc.
You know saline air from the Ocean is good for asthma, don't you?

Why there's no special forum for the Inland Valley, like it is for the other big counties/areas? I'd like to find out some stuff regarding this area, but I don't know where to post. Thanks.

Hi,

I went to high school in Chino Hills, and my step-mother still teaches there, so I'm happy to answer questions about that region if I can. I will say, however, that there is a lot of agriculture near that area still and that that can be tough for asthmatics. Your daughter's doctor can do a regional allergies test that will let you know what crops to stay away from (you probably already knew that, but I thought I'd through it out there just in case).

As for Rancho Cucamonga, they get pretty intense winds which blow up all of the allergens and make it really tough for asthmatics.

I second that the sea air makes it easier to breathe for asthmatics. I have asthma and the coast is great for me -- unless someone has cats LOL!

Good luck.

Well, Temecula is in the inland empire... fresh clean air. 15 minutes from
the Ocean as a bird flies...more like an hour plus by car though. Temecula has fresh
air, low crime, affordable housing (much more affordable than Chino Hills) and is a beautiful place
to live. Drawback? Traffic.

Default I'll second the Temecula area

I also agree with the Temecula area...it doesn't get nearly as smoggy as other places in the Inland Empire. Temecula, French Valley (Winchester), Murrieta....you'll be fine with any of those.

It really does amaze me when going from this area into Corona/Riverside what a difference it makes..you can actually see it!!!

Temecula gets a "sea" breeze through the Rainbow Valley which I've been told is why it doesn't get as smoggy as the other areas.
