Fillmore and Moorpark are separated by more than a narrow, winding road through the sandstone walls of Grimes Canyon. Moorpark, predominately white, is among the richest cities in Ventura County. Fillmore, mostly Latino, ranks near the bottom of the list in income. In the past 20 years, Moorpark has gone from a small packing town on the rail line to a fast-growing suburb of Los Angeles, while Fillmore has remained a pioneering agriculture town tucked in the Santa Clara Valley.

Moorpark is now one of the few California cities where Latino residents make up a shrinking portion of the overall population.
