Over the past 25 years the city of Palmdale has been ranked as one of the 25 fastest growing cities in the United States. Its population has bloomed by nearly 40,000 in the last ten years and now sits at approximately 152,000 people. Palmdale is nestled in the Antelope Valley and is considered to have a high desert climate which means it gets hot in the summer and a little colder than the surrounding areas in the winter with average temperatures in the high 90’s during the summer and often dropping into the 30’s during the winter months. Aerospace companies like Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman are the largest employers in the area. The Space Shuttle and the SR-71 Blackbird spy plane were both originally manufactured in Palmdale. Adding to the cities connection with the aerospace industry, The LA/Palmdale Regional Airport is home to one of the largest airplane hangars in the world and it was used to build a giant replica of JFK International Airport for the 2004 movie The Terminal.
Palmdale is one of the largest cities in the United States that is not currently served by an Interstate Freeway or U.S. Highway. The city is actively working on developing its freeway system and it is rapidly expanding its public transit and bicycle paths/lanes, but these efforts have not yet greatly helped the terrible local traffic because according to the U.S. Census report, Palmdale has the longest average commute time of any city in the United States exceeding even that of New York City. There is no doubt that this level of extreme traffic helps lead to the numerous auto accidents that occur in Palmdale every day.
