Yorba Linda, known as the “Land of Gracious Living” is a city with a strong sense of community and small-town character. Yorba Linda began its transformation into a modern community with its incorporation in 1967. During that decade, the population increased by 890%, reaching 11,856 in 1970, with the city adopting a General Plan for municipal development in 1972. Yorba Linda’s population of 28,254 in 1980 experienced a surge in 1990 with over 52,422 residents. Growth has slowed since, with just over 68,000 residing in the City.
