Tell us what Azusa means to you

  • What makes this a good place to live? What are the downsides?


I agree with Ashley. I come from a town in Washington state, Longview, that's a lot like Azusa in more than one way. Same issues, especially with the two high schools that also share a football stadium. Maybe if the two cities became sister cities they could learn from one another what works and what doesn't.

I lived in Azusa from 1975-1983, (When I entered the U.S. Navy). Even back then there was always "Plans" to build a lighted stadium that both high schools would share, thereby leaving Citrus College to fend for itself...

35 years later they still hope to play somewhere other Good Ol' Citrus Stadium!!! IMAGINE THAT???

Azusa is in need of a make over . Azusa is not a bad city it needs better cleaning and nicer parks. Especially its schools including Gladstone High School. The distirct really doesnt support Gladstone High School. Its seems as if the distirct mainly supports Azusa high school. its not right to be choosing favorites. They also need to creat a football feild for both schools instead of sharing citrus college. It also seem like they are not putting any money towards the high schools, including Gladstone high School.

Feels like Mexico. The downtown area is in need of a revival. Nice homes in the Canyon, with peace and quiet.
