County, California contains the Santa Conchita Valley which is the
home of four communities:
Bay® - Population: 35,000 A combination of rich, beach
front properties and a college town (Santa Conchita University).
Point is an ultra rich section of Duquesa Bay, home to
approximately 1,000 people, known as the "Platinum K".
Heights - Population: 30,000 Upper-middle class suburbia with
lots of upscale strip malls and planned communities.
Conchita - Population: 40,000 The oldest portion of Quartz County,
Santa Conchita grew up near the Santa Conchita Mission (now a historical
site). Much of the original Santa Conchita is decaying industrial
areas and farm based businesses.
Side is the most run down and low income section of the
valley. It is home to abandoned factories, migrant farm workers
and trendy dance clubs.
Side edges into open farm land and is home to the remaining
farm industries and farm workers.
Side is upscale and benefits from proximity to more recently
constructed Chaparral Heights.
Side is moving more slowly upscale, offering historic and
"quaint" housing for SCU students who live outside
Duquesa Bay. Still mostly working class housing and apartments.
Lake - Population: 5,000 Farmland and farm community, but also
home to the famous Quartz Lake Inn, a combination country club and
upscale meeting place overlooking beautiful Quartz Lake. Santa Conchita
Mission Historical Site is located on the western edge of Quartz
Lake. The hills surrounding the scenic lake are home to a combination
of older farmhand housing and more recent secluded mansions.
