at Its Best
With Yosemite’s Half Dome, El Capitan, Yosemite Valley and our beautiful
mountain area as a backyard, residents in Eastern Madera County are blessed!
According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau statistics, our population
grew 2.7 percent between 2001 and 2002. (The entire county’s population
jumped by nearly 40 percent between 1990 and 2000.) That translates to
more than 36,000 households with an average of three people per home.
A healthy 66 percent of our residents do own homes, compared to California’s
57 percent overall. And building permits for new houses are being issued
in the hundreds every year this millennium.
At the same time, our housing and land costs are significantly lower than
Fresno – a pleasant surprise when living on the outskirts of America’s
most popular national park.
