    Issues Confronting Santa Clarita

    How about the Antelope Valley?

    Most townspeople will tell you that areas west of the 14 freeway are more desireable, but there are pockets of good and bad neighborhoods on both sides.

    One forum poster on said “The problem with the AV is that the relatively lower housing costs are still going to attract the less-moneyed. With poor folks come poor-folk problems such as inconsistent employment and, sometimes, questionable character. But, I gather, the other fringe exurbs (Berdoo, Riverside, even out as far as Cabezon) are all experiencing the same difficulties.”
