La Verne is a medium-sized city with a population of 32,206 people and seven constituent neighborhoods. It is the 238th largest community in California.
Founded in 1887 and incorporated in 1906, La Verne is a “close-knit” community which has been able to retain its “small town” traditions and virtues. With eight mobile home parks and three large retirement communities, the city has a significant senior citizen population. In addition, due to an influx of new upscale housing during the past two decades, La Verne also enjoys a large clientele of school-age youth. The City is a well-balanced residential community which includes a good mix of commercial and industrial uses as well as the University of La Verne, an airport and fine public and private schools.
