La Habra Heights, located just 25 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles, is a picturesque community comprised of hillside estates, grasslands, oak woodlands, avocado and citrus groves, riding trails, and panoramic views. Parcels are large, minimum one-acre lots, with a combination of residential, agricultural, and open space areas. The narrow, winding roads and virtually non-existent sewer and storm drain system enhance the rural nature of the community.
The Heights incorporated in 1978 in an effort to preserve our
entirely residential, rural atmosphere. The community consists of 6.2
square miles and 5,712 residents. Volunteerism is alive in the Heights
with residents staffing the 60+ year old Fire Department and working to
preserve the unique scenic beauty and wildlife through several community
organizations. Demographically, the community is well educated,
mid-to-upper income, and politically conservative. Citizen participation
in the City planning and governmental processes is very high, founded
largely on a strong sense of community identification.
