About La Canada Flintridge

La Caada Flintridge is a city in Los Angeles County, California, United States. The population was 20,318 at the 2000 census. Its ZIP code of 91011 ranks the city as the 85th most expensive city to live in the United States with a median home sale price of $1.25 million in 2008.

Pronunciation

Part of the name for La Caada Flintridge comes from the Spanish word caada, meaning gorge, ravine. In Spanish, this has a tilde () and is pronounced [kaˈɲaa]; the English pronunciation is /kənˈjɑːdə/. "Flintridge" is simply pronounced as the two English words "flint" and "ridge", but does not refer to an outcropping ridge of flint (see history section). The name has nothing to do with the country Canada.

Geography

La Caada Flintridge is located at 3412′22″N 11811′58″W / 34.20611N 118.19944W / 34.20611; -118.19944 (34.206047, -118.199499).

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 22.4km (8.6 mi), all land.

The city is situated in the far western end of the San Gabriel Valley, sometimes referred to as SGV. It is nestled between the San Gabriel Mountains and Angeles National Forest on the north, and the San Rafael Hills on the south. Most of the city drains southeastward toward Pasadena to Arroyo Seco, but the western part of the city (generally west of Alta Canyada Road) drains southward toward Glendale via Verdugo Canyon. Both drainages join the Los Angeles River north of downtown Los Angeles.

La Caada Flintridge varies in elevation from about 970 feet (295 m) just below Devil's Gate Dam in the Arroyo Seco to about 2400 feet (730 m) at the highest neighborhood, along the mountain front east of Pickens Canyon, at the upper end of Ocean View Blvd. The city limits extend into the San Gabriel Mountains and reach 3440 feet (1050 m) along Mount Lukens Road, which follows the crest line well above the developed city.

The city is home to Descanso Gardens and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Weather

The climate of La Caada Flintridge is typical of a Southern California inland valley, with mild winters and hot summers. Spring often has hazy days, in contrast to the more persistently clear weather of fall. On average, the warmest month is August with high temperatures (F) in the low 90s and lows in the low 60s. December and January are the coolest months with typical highs in the high 60s (F) and lows in the mid-40s. Rainfall occurs mostly during winter, averaging about 22 inches annually. Rainfall is rare in summer. The moderating influence of the ocean (22 miles, 35km, away) is limited due to the city's location inland from the intervening Santa Monica Mountains and the Verdugo Mountains and San Rafael Hills. Consequently, summers are generally hotter and winters often cooler than in coastal parts of metropolitan Los Angeles if winds are calm or blowing gently offshore. Occasional strong offshore winds, known as Santa Ana winds, can bring particularly hot air in summer and fall as air from the deserts plateaus crosses the mountains and descends, thus warming further by adiabatic heating. Summer and early fall temperatures are substantially cooler if the prevailing wind is persistently onshore. Occasionally during a winter storm, the upper elevations of the city may see trace amounts of snow. The small ski resorts Mountain High, Mount Baldy, and Mount Waterman are located about 30 miles to the northeast. In August of 2009, the city came under threat by the Station Fire.

History

During the Spanish era, the area was known as Rancho La Caada.

Prior to the city's incorporation in 1976, the area consisted of two distinct communities, La Caada and Flintridge (the latter named after developer and United States Senator Frank P. Flint). Flintridge comprises the southern part of the city, covering the northern flank of the San Rafael Hills, but more generally including most areas south of Foothill Blvd. The eastern part of the city, even north of Foothill Blvd., was also originally considered Flintridge and is still home to the Flintridge Riding Club and Flintridge Preparatory School. Reference to the entire city is often shortened to just 'La Caada' but seldom to just 'Flintridge'. The full city name specifically does not have a hyphen in it, to illustrate unity between the communities that were once separately known as La Caada and Flintridge.

La Caada Flintridge had the longest city name in California with 18 letters until the year 2000, when the title was ceded to Rancho Santa Margarita.
