California, U.S.A.
Welcome to Calimesa, California.
The City of Calimesa is located in Riverside County and is part of the Greater Los Angeles Area. Home to around 8,000 people, Calimesa is nestled in the San Gorgonio Pass. The pass is a gap on the rim of the Great Basin between the San Bernardino Mountains to the north and the San Jacinto Mountains to the south, which carries the Interstate 10 and the Union Pacific Railroad between the Los Angeles basin and the Coachella Valley. Calimesa was incorporated as a city in 1990, shortly after its neighbor Yucaipa. Before its incorporation, Calimesa was a census-designated town that straddled the Riverside-Bernardino County line where Interstate 10 travels east from Redlands in the San Gorgonio Pass. Much of what was then Calimesa was actually situated within the city boundaries of Yucaipa, and when Yucaipa incorporated, it included the area outside of the Yucaipa Valley on the hilltop traditionally known as Calimesa, as to not leave a gap between the two towns. Hence, although the two cities are situated in separate counties, both Yucaipa and Calimesa share the same street system and addressing, with many named streets extending from one city to another. The history of Calimesa began with a small rural town containing mainly single-family homes and ranches. After U.S. Route 99 (I-10 Freeway) was established, new businesses popped up in Calimesa, which allowed for a separate identity from the larger town of Yucaipa. In 1929, around 100 residents held a meeting to apply for their own post office and a name contest was held. The winning name was Calimesa, which is said to come from cali, meaning California, and mesa, from the Spanish word table or table-lands. In modern day, the last decade has brought several planned communities, including the JP Ranch Development, Calimesa Springs Development, the Summerwind Ranch at Oak Valley and Mesa Verde. The Summerwind Ranch and the Mesa Verde both contain mixed-use commercial space. Most schools in Calimesa are served by the Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District, but the southernmost area belongs to neighboring Beaumont Unified School District. The latter is in fact the fastest growing area of town as of now. Calimesa only has one public school, Mesa View Middle School, which opened in 2009. The Calimesa Elementary School is actually located in Yucaipa, and high school students attend Yucaipa High School; the only operating elementary and high school is currently the Mesa Grande Academy, which is a private K-12 school owned by the Seventh-day Activist Church. The nearest community college is Crafton Hills College, situated in the city of Yucaipa as well.
