    The Bonita area is a very great neighborhood. Wholesome, and very family oriented. It consists largely of older home structures, but is very quaint and quiet. The location is very close to a network of schools between k-12 as well as a community college and pre schools. Great accessibility to the freeway, yet far enough away to not be disturbed by the hustle and bustle of everyday life. One particular concern, however, is vehicle safety. Many cars that drive through the area have a tendency to go over the speed limit and is quite a hazard to the large population of children within the area. One particular change that I would like to see, particularly in my neighborhood, is the addition of speed bumps along the street. To encourage to drive more consciously.

    Quaint area with horses and nice neighborhood homes and schools. The weather is perfect. Not too hot, not too cold. Lots of businesses close by for convenience but not right on top of you. The home value continues to improve because the HOA stays on top of the homeowners to assure compliance. The future for the area is hopefully to remain the same with quiet green belts, open areas so more houses are not built and quality people to run our schools.

    Bonita is an equestrian friendly community. People are friendly, and health-conscious. There is a great part for walking or bike-riding. As long as you are willing to wait until rush hour is over, the commute is reasonable.
