Spring Valley is a census-designated place in San Diego County. Located in the southwest corner of the county, it is named after a natural spring that is located nearby. It began to be settled when, in 1863, Augustus S. Ensworth filed a claim for control of the land.
The average income per household in Spring Valley is approximately $46,000, putting it at the lower end of earnings of cities in San Diego County. It is also very ethnically diverse, with a large number of Hispanic people living within the community, along with a fair amount of African Americans.
Spring Valley has seen a population decline over the past few decades, one of the few cities in San Diego County to experience one. In 1990, the population of this city was approximately 55,000; by 2000, it was almost cut in half to 26,000. This can be attributed to several factors. First, as new, poorer immigrants moved into the community, the established middle class left. This exodus led to a boom in development in other areas of San Diego, which further attracted more people from Spring Valley. It does appear that the population of this city has stabilized, so hopefully more middle class residents return. As a Spring Valley personal injury attorney, I know that once an area begins to become run down, the chances of getting injured go up significantly due to broken or cracked sidewalks, trash and debris on the street, etc.
