Riverside has much more and as well the 10 freeway corridor.
Why do you think Palm Springs installed all those fans? To blow the smog back to Los Angeles. J/K
Hemet has far less smog and you can check with the aqmd to verify.

Hemet Population: 71,785

The density is not that much greater???? Moreno Valley has nearly 3 times our population yet we outrank them in sex offenders.
you should be ashamed. Can't you make a living being truthful?? Survey says....NO!!!
The city is not a "toilet." We have coming here since 1988 and moved here in 1999. Yes, the city has problems, but I am certainly not living in fear. You might want to check the areas in Compton, to see what they are currently like. My wife and I are real estate agents her in Hemet, and we are all over the town, at all hours of the night and day, and we do not feel unsafe. I heard recently that the number of section 8 homes in town is about 18 or 19. I really don't think that is going to effect the quality of life in our two cities of around 150,000 people. As far as sex offenders go, the density is not much greater than that of Moreno Valley, Riverside or Corona.
We like Hemet, that's why we have made the choice of living and working here.

We bought here 5 years ago and the city has gone down so dramatically over that time. For example, just check out the rates of sex offenders per capita. Hemet is a dumping ground for sex offenders and the holy land of section 8 housing. Crime is skyrocketing. I don't feel safe here anymore because of all the criminal events---and we live on one of the better streets. We've had people attempting to break into our back yard, neighbors have had cars broken into and keyed and RV's that were attempted to be stolen. We've had to install security cameras and are on guard at all times.
I've talked to people who came to Hemet from Compton to get away from gangs and crime and are seriously thinking about heading back to Compton. I know the low prices of housing makes it a tempting choice, but it's not worth it. Good luck on your search for a safe and live-able city Suzi :)
Smog is usually in summer, and our home is high in the hills, but the only thing we see is fog.
Oh, and Scott........ Been to Walmart many times, and I have not yet been mugged!

Florida is a long street. The west side is full of new restaurants and shopping areas, and I have never seen one prostitute or sign of a gang.
I can't tell you how many times we have stopped to feed the goats that you see on Sanderson. I LOVE those goats!
I love the country part of Hemet! Looking forward to moving there. Still waiting for approval from the lender.
If it doesn't work out, we'll just keep looking.
I don't know about the job Market in Hemet, but if you don't want to do retail, landscaping, or restaurant work here in Coachella Valley, you will be hard pressed to find a job. It's probably the same in Hemet. Small agricultural town. Our offer is on the Ag side because we like the climate and Orchards.
We discovered Hemet because we always drive through it on our way to Temecula to visit the grand kids. Until we started looking for housing there, we didn't know about the bad areas, but having lived in Tustin and Santa Ana, we know every town has it's "wrong side of the tracks!"
On purpose, we chose acreage with no HOA, so we can put in solar panels and a windmill or two! :-))
Thanks to you who stuck to the topic.
It is much appreciated!
So check things out for your self as you would with any life changing move you make, no matter where you decide to move you will always find some one who doesnt like it there.
This is essentially a small town. One in which a person's character is quickly known to clients, past present, and future. If you wish to check on our honesty, I would be happy to give you a list of past clients. Most of our current business is through referrals from past clients, that does not happen by being dishonest.
