Moreno Valley

The City of Moreno Valley, once a collection of three rural communities, incorporated as a city in 1984.

In the 1980s, the valley experienced explosive growth. Housing construction escalated, and families from the major metropolises migrated by the tens of thousands. In the first decade of the 2000s, growth escalated again, and housing exploded.

Today, it is among the fastest-growing communities in California and the Inland Empire, offering affordable housing and easy access to many other Inland communities.

Neighborhood Info

The City of Moreno Valley, once a collection of three rural communities, incorporated as a city in 1984. Today, it is among the fastest-growing communities in California and the Inland Empire, offering affordable housing and easy access to many other Inland communities. Centuries ago, the Moreno Valley area was an integral part of John Butterfield's legendary Tucson-to-San Francisco stagecoach route. In 1883, Frank E. Brown built a dam at Bear Valley in the San Bernardino Mountains to provide water to the foundling communities of Moreno (Spanish for "Brown") and Alessandro. But legal fights left the area without access to the water, and many of the farmers moved out. In 1918, as the United States was anticipating entry into World War I and was rushing to build up its military forces, March Field was built on 640 acres. March eventually became a permanent military facility encompassing more than 7,000 acres. For more than 70 years, March Air Force Base enjoyed a long and active military history in the valley; at the height of its activity, the Base supported 85,000 troops. But in 1996, March was realigned as an Air Reserve Base, and is today poised for great economic growth involving public and private development. In the 1980s, the valley experienced explosive growth. Housing construction escalated, and families from the major metropolises migrated by the tens of thousands. In the first decade of the 2000s, growth escalated again, and housing exploded. Today, the City of Moreno Valley offers a wide variety of neighborhoods, shopping, schools and colleges. Moreno Valley California includes the friendly neighborhoods of Box Springs, Hidden Springs, Moreno Valley Ranch, Edgemont, Rancho Belago, Sunnymead and Sunnymead Ranch. Remember, Moreno Valley CA is sometimes spelled as Moreno Valey, Morano Valley, Morayno Valley, and Mareno Valley.
