"Small, Unincorporated Town Near Azusa..."

Like Charter Oak, which is just three miles away, Citrus is a small, unincorporated section of Los Angeles between Azusa, Glendora and Covina along the 210 freeway. A smaller section of Citrus is north of the 210 (south of Azusa) while the larger portion of Citrus is south of the 210 (north of Covina). Regardless of what side of the freeway you are on, Citrus homeowners maintain an Azusa address.

Homes vary in price but are considered affordable and offer a variety of architectural styles. New home construction is picking up and many areas are priced for first time homebuyers. The neighborhoods are generally nice here and crime in Citrus is low with just minor disturbances.

With downtown Los Angeles approximately 30 miles away, many residents rely on public transportation. The Covina Metrolink station takes riders directly to downtown LA. Traffic along the 210 is a nightmare so its best to avoid that, especially during high commute hours.

Citrus College is technically in Glendora and is the oldest community college in Los Angeles county. It is a very well respected and students from nearby communities, such as Azusa, Charter Oak, Monrovia, Duarte, Claremont and of course, Glendora makes up the majority of the 12,000 students enrolled. They have a strong athletic program as well.

Overall, schools fall under the Azusa Unified School District and are considered good with lots of after school programs and above average state test scores.

Yet overall, there isn’t anything to do here, but with Glendora, Azusa and Covina close, you don’t want for anything.
  • Affordable Housing
