Brief information about Yorba Linda
Its most famous resident was Richard Nixon, who was born there, although his father moved the family away before Yorba Linda incorporated. The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is in Yorba Linda.
The new city drew up and implemented its municipal general plan in 1972. By the 1980 Census, the population was nearing 30,000. Within ten years it exceeded 50,000.
In 1990, the Birthplace of Richard Nixon opened as a public library and museum. It would later become a federal presidential library. In 1994, the community center opened.
With over 20,000 housing units in the city as of 2016, many residents now oppose further urban development and have organized the Preserve Yorba Linda movement in an effort to maintain the natural environment and reduce traffic congestion, among other things. The Preserve Yorba Linda movement is unaffiliated with the Yorba Linda Preservation Foundation, which seeks to protect historical buildings in the city.
It has two ZIP codes, 92886 and 92887, approximately the western and eastern portions of the city, respectively. A third, 92885, also exists, exclusively for PO Boxes. The city is served by area codes 657 and 714 in a geographical overlay situation, in which 714 numbers were running out, so that 657 numbers are now also being issued in the same area. Eleven-digit dialing is therefore now required for local calls.
It is bordered by Anaheim on the south, Placentia on the west and southwest, Brea on the northwest, Chino Hills State Park on the north, and Corona on the east.
The two nearest seismic faults are the Whittier Fault and the Chino Fault, both of which are part of the Elsinore Fault Zone.

Originally, the city pursued construction of an auto mall on the entire Savi Ranch site. Although multiple car lots do presently exist, the original plan was rejected by residents, in favor of a combination of retail stores, restaurants, hotels, and office buildings. Moreover, as of 2010, two of the three car dealer locations sit empty, one of which only sold used cars.
As a significant source of sales tax revenue to Yorba Linda and as one of the first anchor tenants (along with Best Buy), The Home Depot became a political talking point in its own right.
This is due to the fact that Savi Ranch is divided into two sections, east and west. Savi Ranch East is the Yorba Linda side, which is larger, while Savi Ranch West lies within the adjacent City of Anaheim. At the inception of Savi Ranch, the Home Depot was located in Savi Ranch East. In the early 2000s, however, the Super Kmart location in Savi Ranch West went out of business, and The Home Depot moved into that location and in the process took the sales tax across the city boundary.
Also located in the Yorba Linda side of Savi Ranch is the headquarters of John Force Racing, which house 16-time NHRA Funny Car Champion John Force, his team of drivers, and their cars. An on-site museum is dedicated to Force’s career.
