Costa Mesa: One of the Best Places to Live
Costa Mesa is considered one of the Best Places to Live* in the nation and, along with several other OC cities, has been designated as such by a number of magazines and websites over recent years.
Economic opportunity and jobs, housing affordability, education, health, and low crime rates are all used in the formula to rank cities for such lists.
In 2014, despite a 30% reduction in force, Costa Mesa police kept personal crime incidents limited to 2 per 1,000 people and property crime incidents to 35 per 1,000 people. People want to live where they feel safe and they feel that their families are safe.
The Costa Mesa POA is proud to contribute to the quality of life in our great city.
