Here at Santa Margarita Plumbing, we take pride in being a locally-owned, as well as a locally-based company. We got started here in the heart of Rancho Santa Margarita about 25 years ago when there was not much more than a lake and a golf course. However, through the years of growth and expansion, Santa Margarita has been able to retain the small town feel and sense of community, all while remaining a very safe place to raise a family.
When we heard that Rancho Santa Margarita was named one of the safest cities in the country, we were not too surprised because of our love for it, but we were indeed proud that our little city was getting the national recognition it deserves! Not only were we excited to see that we made the list, but we also made the top 10! We just barely missed the top 5, coming in at number 6 out of over 17,000 cities with a population of over 25,000 people.
Neighborhood Scout compares the safety of cities across the country of different sizes by factoring in population — giving you a rate for individual types of crime per thousand residents. As opposed to the "most dangerous cities" ranking, which is based on violent crimes – what makes cities really dangerous - this ranking is about safety from all crimes. Here cities are ranked by overall crime rate, which includes both violent and property crimes. Types of crimes taken into consideration are: burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, homicide, rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault.
Bedroom communities like the ones on this list exist somewhere in between big cities (which still have large crime counts), and these more-dangerous industrial satellites. There could be something to be said of the fact that the safest towns are overwhelmingly places where people live, but do not work: the types of communities that are populated by the gainfully employed and their families, who can afford to relocate specifically for quality of life. Many of the safest cities also have the best school systems and high rates of college graduates. High paying jobs are not far away. What this illustrates is that access to opportunity (nearby high paying jobs), combined with amenities in the community (like good schools), can drive home values up and crime down.
We are proud to be some of the people who both work and live in a beautiful and safe city like Rancho Santa Margarita. Not only has RSM come in as one of the safest cities, we have been in the top-10 each year since 2012(2014-5, 2013-10, 2012-7)! We hope this trend continues and based on our interations with our loyal and friendly customers, we don't see that changing anytime soon! Thank you for keeping our families, friends, and employees safe for the last 25 years!
