We had a meeting at the clubhouse at Heritage Lake a few months back about incorporation and we are within the last phase of the city hood plan. A vote is coming up in June to incorporate us into a city if everything goes as planned. By the way my family lives in Tradition's and we love the community.

You can smell the sludge every day and night in Menifee. I have a small dog that is suffering because of it and my husband and I are starting to develop some issues with congestion that we never had before. We keep our house closed up and never open windows, which is not freedom or anything. Can't go outside between 5 pm and 9 am without feeling like you live in a sewer treatment facility. Neighborhood is going downhill due to renters who party in their driveways and leave their trash in OUR yard. What was supposed to be paradise is becoming a Hellhole and no one seems to care. The residents attacked a lady a while ago for complaining and told her to go back to the OC if she didn't like the smell. I suggest those neighbors look around and see how everyone is moving out and the renters are moving in and wonder why. Look at the number of kids on the streets yelling and not paying any attention to cars driving by. My husband almost hit one that came flying out of his drive on a skateboard and then gave my husband the finger like he did something wrong. Often times the security people can be called and they say they can't do anything about it. I think people defend themselves with positive thoughts because they WANT so badly to believe it will get better because they bought here but as I see it, someone better stand up now to make it better or it will just get worse. You can't keep your eyes shut just because you love your HOME, you have to stand up and fight to make it better. If I can get out I will before this sludge kills me and the neighborhood begins to look like South Central.

don't be a hater Stelis even if I am living on a mound of human sludge I am very pleased with the Heritage Lake community. I have been here for two years and love everything about it. Too bad you didn't buy here. Your mistake but don't put it down with you stupid remarks about something that isn't even true. Don't be a hater and get your facts straight. The only place that is full of human feces is your mouth...

Oh, and to all you folks just now moving into Heritage Lakes & Heritage Valley, you might want to do some reading up on the topic of sludge. Here is a Google search for sludge menifee...

All of the farm fields in Menifee, Winchester, Romoland, Homeland, have been fertilized with sludge, which is treated human feces. That stuff used to get shipped here from OC. That entire Heritage Lakes development sits on a farm field where human excrement was used to grow crops.

Heritage Lakes is in the proposed city of Menifee/Menifee Valley. The proposed city limits would extend to Briggs Road. Heritage High will be located in the new city, if cityhood is approved.

Election for cityhood is tomorrow (June 3, 2008)

VOTE YES FOR CITYHOOD!

I've lived in the Menifee area for 19 years. The sludge issue is an old one. The actual areas where sludge was dumped is the Centex Homes (The Lakes) down to the Tierra Shores area. If you are driving around Lindenberger/Domenigoni, roll down your windows and you can still smell it. It's better than it used to be, but it's still there. The Heritage Lake area was not part of the sludge dumping. Tierra Shore's land was especially hit hard (hence why you can't even walk around that lake).

If you're considering "runoff" from rainstorms part of the sludge stream, then you might as well call Canyon Lake part of the sludge area since the runoff rolls down there.

Get your facts straight.

my husband and I are looking to buy in Heritage Lakes and were worried about the type of people that we would be neighbors with there. I grew up in Romoland/Homoland and couldn't wait to leave. Now we live in Long Beach and will miss it and the people so much, it's so encouraging to hear that so many from the OC and LA are there, woo hoo!

If you own property in Long Beach, Temecula or Murrieta would be a better fit. There are other areas of Riverside County such as Canyon Crest and Orangecrest for existing or relatively new executive homes, or Lake Mathews area, and even Corona for new homes that are much better also. However, if you are an apartment dweller, you will fit right in with the other former OC, L.A., and SD apartment dwellers that now own and live in Menifee’s Heritage Lake. I know many home owners from all three cities referenced above who owned property in those cities, and moved to Riverside County. None of them sold their city homes and moved into a cheap overpriced track home in Menifee. They moved into communities with equivalent home prices befitting their status. If you buy with that in mind, you will be in a community with people in the same social- economic class as yourself.

Former Landfill, your a total snob, it doesnt matter if your an apartment renter or a home owner in Long Beach. Long Beach people arent Long Beach people according to if they have a mortgage or not. Get over yourself. Im guessing YOUR status is total stuck up jerk..

The only sludge in Heritage Lakes is the stuff some the mouths of these people are writing about that nonsence. I live in Park Lane area of Heritage Lakes and find it is wonderful. I do get a whiff of the dairy farm on rare occations when the wind is coming from the south, but it is not very often and usually goes away in fifteen or twenty minutes. Again, it only happens rarely! Not a problem. To the folks who think the OC or LA county is better than the IE, I say PLEASE stay there! We love it here, the area is not overrun, there is no crime to speak of, no major traffic, and it is a joy living the country life. Heritage Lakes is the jewel of Menifee and I feel lucky to have been smart enough to buy into this development when I did and plan to stay here for many years.

Hi,
I'm originally from OC and we were looking into Heritage Lake a few years ago before the market crashed. We opted for Texas instead. While we love what you get for the money here, we miss California terribly and are always considering coming back.
How is the neighborhood today? Is it as dismal with forclosures the way so many other riverside county communities appear to be?

I go to HOuston for business all the time. The housing in Houston is very cheap but the quality of living is not there. I believe that today is the best time to buy in CA and especially in Menifee. You can get a very beautiful house for mid 200k, the community is very nice, the people. This is the best place for the price.

Heritage Lake was INCORPORATED in 2008, into Menifee. The Signs on the freeway tell you it is no longer Sun City or Romoland. The assessor's office has FAILED MISERABLY to state the facts and the TRUTH that Heritage Lake is NO LONGER either Sun City or Romoland and they need a wake up call to change the computers to provide correct CITY information. In October of 2008 we joined the Menifee Comunity and City and we are tired of incorrect information being stated.

Hello Janette
I can help get you the information you need for Romoland as well as Heritage. Also if you are interested in purchasing in Hertiage, I can be of assistance because I am a REALTOR and sometimes when a REALTOR, that is not affiliated with Heritage or other new homes, represents you the buyer, you basically can get a better deal and ammenities. If you are still interested in purchasing a home new or old, please feel free to contact me at any time.
I AM BLESSED TO BE YOUR BEST REAL ESTATE AGENT

Wow so this realtor dated this back in 2007? I bet Miss Ruth told u alot of nice things about the market and the area back then and how financing would be easy . Now its 2012 i bet she took advantage and all of her clients back then are either facing foreclosure and or default at this very moment. Im glad i waited till now to buy a new home. Where closing in a few weeks. I did not need lousy realtor i negotiated a bargain with free closing cost and builder incentives all on my own. If i can do it anyone can. Lets phase out these realtors who helped greatly to a weak economy.

These people claiming sludge issues are a bunch of uneducated NUTS. I doubt that any of them have higher than a high school diploma. I used to live next to one of the loudest ones. Please take a chemistry class then come back and tell us about sludge-or better yet get a real job. I live in Heritage Lake and love it! My grass is sooo green from all that untreated waste.

Moved from Huntington Beach....initially missed everything about the area, guess when I purchased there I was young and enjoyed all the amenities and raising a family, a big part was the beach being 15 minutes away. Raised a family then retired to Menifee. I return back regularly and enjoy my regular spots with friends and family, but I've noticed how crowded and busy everything has become. Didn't notice till I moved away, now things are much more laid back. By the way talk about over priced, when I purchased in HB in 1990 it was considered very expensive at the time. When I sold I made over 3 time the original purchase price(good timing). Could have made 4 times but waited about 4 months too long. Now thats what I consider over priced when 4 months could mean that much difference. Purchased a house and pocketed a bunch of dollars. Guess it all depends on where your at in your life...mine has slowed down to living slower verses trying to work my way towards the beach.
