Eastvale is a city located in northwestern Riverside County, California, the Inland Empire region of Southern California. Its boundaries extend from Hellman Avenue to the West (the San Bernardino County Line), Bellgrave Avenue to the North (also the San Bernardino County Line), the Santa Ana River and Norco to the South, and Interstate 15 to the East. Eastvale, once a rural area, was predominantly dairy farms and agricultural until the late 1990s. At that time, the area started to suburbanize to accommodate the influx of people coming from neighboring Orange and Los Angeles Counties seeking affordable housing. Eastvale was particularly hit hard by the United States housing bubble that burst in the late 2000s. A large portion of the communities’ homes were sold during the early and mid-2000s at highly inflated prices fueled by the subprime mortgage industry. In June 2006, the median home in Eastvale was valued at $601,000 and had drastically fallen to $304,000 by June, 2009 according to Zillow representing a 50% decrease in home values over a span of three years. A committee of concerned Eastvale residents, the Eastvale Community Committee (ECC), was formed in so that issues facing the growing community would be addressed. Formed in 2002, the ECC holds public meetings with county representatives, utility operators, law enforcement agencies, local school representatives, and local business owners. A group of volunteer residents publishes a summary of the meetings and other articles in the quarterly Eastvale Edition which is mailed to most residents and is also available online.
