- Pomona Valley
The Pomona Valley, located between the
San Gabriel Valleyand San Bernardino Valleyin the Inland Empire region of Southern California, straddles the border between Los Angeles Countyand San Bernardino County. Some residents consider the Pomona Valley to be a unique geographical area, distinct from both Los Angeles and the Inland Empire. Indeed, on March 1, 1893the California Assemblyvoted 54-14 for a new county to form in the region, San Antonio County, with Pomona as its seat. Los Angeles interests in the Senate rejected the concept, however, and today the eastern and western portions remain divided between San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties.cite news | title= History timeline of the Inland Empire, California | url= http://www.sbsun.com/empireday_3/ci_7323066 | publisher= San Bernardino County Sun| date= October 30, 2007| accessdate= 2007-11-15] Physical dividing lines separating the Pomona valley from the San Bernardino Valley on the east include: the San Antonio River, the eastern border of the Watershed of the San Antonio River, and Interstate 15/Etiwanda Avenue. The Pomona Valley is separated from the San Gabriel Valleyto the west by the San Jose Hillsrunning approximately along State Route 57.The valley lies south of the San Gabriel Mountains and north of the Chino Hills. The eastern San Bernardino County portion is largely rural and suburban while the western LA County portion ranges from older urban areas such as Pomona and Claremont to newer affluent suburbs. The historic Route 66 runs through the Pomona Valley.
The residents of the Pomona Valley are predominantly
Whiteand Latino. In contrast to the San Gabriel Valley, the population of Asian Americans is much smaller.
