Hi I live in Murray. Murray and Sandy are both good cities although I would be careful where I chose in Murray (just meaning it's not quite as nice the further west/north you go) I live in a very nice older neighborhood. Sandy and Murray are both very convenient which is nice. I love the school my kids go to and I've heard that Murray school district is one of the best in the state. I'm sure Sandy has great schools too. Asthma is not a good thing to have here in the winter. We have inversions which are really nasty pockets of air that settle in the valley and make the air yucky and cold. In the summer it is very dry and can get pretty hot. I moved here 11 years ago and have really enjoyed it. Any other questions I could answer feel free to ask Good luck with your decision.

Thanks You. I need to look into that air thing. He is a mail carrier but soon will be getting a new job where he will be indoors..
I know there is no perfect place but I would perfer to stay away from roudy neighborhoods where I dont have to worry about drive by or crazy violence happening every other day.. Where I live is kinda calm but a few blocks over its crazy. Thank You agian.

Most of the valley is contiguous cities, meaning you don't really know where one stops and another starts. You need a realtor to help you sort out the school districts and taxing entities, although as far as I know, the taxes are pretty equal. If commute matters to you, tell us where the job will be.

I have asthma and sl long as I stay indoors on red air days, I don't have problems. Some people find it better here due to their triggers, I never had asthma until I moved here.

He is a mail carrier and he can get transferd out there but we wouldn't know what office until he starts the paperwork. He is going to school to become a graphic designer ..or something like that.. lol I can't never remember. I have no job at the time.. but I am sure I can get one if I needed it.
We live in Bakersfield Ca.. and its the worst air quaility ... he has had asthma since he was a kid. We just dont know what triggers it because he works in different cities. I am pretty sure anywhere but here is better. I guess we can give it a try for about a year too see how things go and if it gets worse then i guess we will have to find a different place.. thank you for your response.
We just have lots of questions that can't really be answerd until we experince it ourselves... lol

School systems are overcrowded and underfunded. I don't have kids so I don't really follow school funding other than how my property taxes are impacted by that.

Our worst inversion times are typically late December through January. Our local news will report on air quality by county along the wasatch front. You could take a drive up Parley's canyon (eastbound Interstate 80) to get above the bad air if the road conditions allow.

When my cousin moved from Orange county to Utah, she got repeated nosebleeds from the very dry air here. Might want to consider a humidifier during your adjustment period after your move.

My DH has had asthma since he was a kid too. He was hospitalized for it a few times when he was young. It was pretty bad when we lived in NJ, but now he only has attacks from time to time when the pollen count is high. The inversions in the winter don't bother him and he even works outside.
