commerce and culture
Most of the city is residential, but, like neighboring cities such as Ontario and Fontana, it is also the center of the logistics industry in southern California. The reason for this is that it was close to the interstate expressway and the Ontario International Airport, and that the vast former agricultural land in the southern part of the city was available. Between Archibald and Etiwanda Avenue in Milliken Avenue, Foothill Boulevard and the four peripheral areas, about seven square miles (18 km²), are mainly large distribution centers, with smaller manufacturing companies. The area is surrounded by busy office parks along Haven Avenue, and there are shopping centers such as the Teravista Town Center (a shopping mall with a master plan in the center of the city, a little less than two square miles (5 km²)), and the Ontario Mills along No. 4 street in Ontario City. The city has the only Tamco Steel Plant in California that operates a steel mill. The steel mill makes steel by recycling scrap and scrap of parts.
The city has an epicenter, a minor league baseball stadium, and Rancho Kamonga Quakes Co., Ltd. is the home ground. The Quakes' mascot "Tremore" is "Larry Saurus." Fireworks are set off after every Saturday game.
The Victorian Garden Lifestyle Center, built at the east end of the city, is located at the intersection of Foothill Boulevard and Dickley Boulevard. As traditional commercial centers such as the neighboring cities of Ontario and Apland did not develop in Rancho Kukamonga, special efforts were made to design the Victorian Garden to introduce more traditional and urban design elements into the town, which has historically developed into a bedroom community. While maintaining the traditional characteristics of shopping centers such as large-scale anchor stores, food coats, and large parking lots surrounding the area, small shops are arranged in blocks surrounded by two-lane roads to create a prosperous landscape, and a parking lot with meters is constructed in front of the stores to make it up to the sidewalk. There are two main streets running through the city center in the east-west direction. The North-South Highway between these two streets is the axis of pedestrian traffic, from the anchor shop Marseys to the Victoria Garden Cultural Center through Town Square between a pair of multipurpose office buildings. The center has a 570-seat theater and a public library. In addition to the food court, there are restaurants in California Pizza Kitchen, Fleming's, Gyu-kaku, Henry's Pacific Grill, Johnny's Rockets, King's Fish House, Lucile's Barbecue, P. F. Chan China Bistro, and Richeese Diner. There are chain stores and restaurants with distinctive features such as T·G·I Friday and Yard House. There are 12-screen Cinecon and AMC Theaters here.
Across the street from Victoria Garden is the only bus-pro shop in Southern California for the Outdoor World Super Store. Both are visible from Interstate Expressway Route 15.
The city of Rancho Kamonga is a city of law established by the municipal government in 1977, and adopts the City Administration Committee and the City Manager system.

It belongs to the 31st district in the California Senate. In the House, it belongs to the 63rd district. The House of Representatives is part of the 26th district of the state. The Cook Ballot Index is Republican Party +4. As of 2008, all Republican members were represented. In 2005, the non-partisan Bay Area Voting Research Center ranked Rancho Kukamonga as the 28th conservative city in the United States.
The San Bernardino County Court Foothill Communities is also located in the city.
Because of the special circumstance that Rancho Kamonga is at the foot of the Sanga Brier Mountains, it was necessary to use many administrative channels in the city to reduce the risk of flooding from several streams flowing out of the mountains. In the past, several streets in the city were known to be repeatedly flooded with water. In particular, Hermosa Avenue has many tall curbs and especially large drainage gratings to reduce floods.
As for energy, natural gas is supplied from Southern California Gas Company. The water and sewage lines are operated by the Kukamonga Valley Water Area. The garbage collection is in charge of Bartec Disposals, the telephone is in charge of Verizon, and the cable television is in charge of Charter Communications.
Electricity is supplied by Southern California Edison and Leilliant Energy's Etiwanda Power Plant is located in Etiwanda Avenue. The power plant is one of the five "Lilliant" power stations in California, which started operating in 1963. With a power generating capacity of 640 megawatts, the second largest power plant on the west coast. There are four steam turbine generators, of which No. 3 and No. 4 are always in operation. The first and the second and the combustion turbines were dismissed in 2003 and 2004. Several systems are running to control gas emissions, and over 900 million gallons (3,400 meters3) of recycled water is used for cooling every year.
The Ranchok Kamonga City traffic will have access to bus services at OmniTrans, to Metro Link, and to air services at the nearby Ontario International Airport. The Interstate Highway Route No. 15 and the relatively new California National Highway Route No. 210 section run through the city, and U.S. National Highway Route No. 66 is also running. Since Interstate Expressway Route 15 is located on a raised mound of earth and diagonally across the southeastern part of the city, most of the industrial areas, small shopping centers, and several residential areas are isolated from the larger part of the city. Towards the north, the mountain is low, forming a northeastern border with neighboring Fontana City, and enters the Kahon Pass through the Sanga Brier Mountains. The Route 210 runs almost straight east-west through the northern part of the city, almost dividing the residential areas of Alta Rome and Etiwanda. The western part of the road runs through a place dug down as it passes through the city, but the street rises to the east of Dei Creek Boulevard, and becomes elevated when it passes the Sunsbein Creek flood control route, and then crosses the interstate highway Route 15 to enter Fontana City.
In Ranchok Kamonga City, there are schools from public kindergarten students to 12th grade, which run under several school districts. The schools include Alta Roma, Central, Kukamonga, Etiwanda and Chaffi. In addition to these, there is Chaffi University, which has satellite campuses of University of Labelne, University of Redlands, Everest College and Phoenix. Universal School of Technology is also located, which is an automobile specialized school. A private Apple Christian Academy was recently established.

the name of 'Cucumongo'
The name 'Kukamonga' comes from the name of the Tonva Indian, and the pronunciation is probablyKukm (Kukamana), meaning a place with sand. However, Bela Roca, the chief of the Gabrielino branch of the Shoshoni tribe, says that the meaning is the place of the village where the water comes. "Cu" or "Kuc" means "come, come, come, or go." "Amo" means "water, wet, and water," and "Nanga" means "land of a village." Either interpretation shows that it points to the same place. The northern part of the city is at the foot of a mountain range, and there are many dug wells and creeks. The surface soil is very rich in sand and rocks due to a storm repeatedly blowing down from the northern mountain range. Another theory of 'Kukamonga' is that it means 'light over the mountains' and the place names ending with 'nga' can be found in many Tonva place names in this area, so this theory is certainly fantastic. The area became a part of the Rancho Kukamonga, a Mexican land patent, for the first time in the 1800s as an example of a local name.
In popular culture, the name 'Kukamonga' is considered to be a place name with a strange sense of words. One of the catchphrases for the radio show "The Jack Benny Program" is that Mel Blank announced the announcement of the train, saying, "The train is just leaving Platform 5, Anaheim, Azusa and Cook... I'm going to Amonga." There was a long pause between "Cook" and "Amonga." These three cities exist (as towns at that time), but the Los Angeles audience had heard a joke about the lack of such a train route. As a 'reward' for this 'advertisement', Rancho Kukamonga City named the street 'Jack Benny Way' when it built a minor league baseball stadium and built a bronze statue of Jack Benny outside the entrance of the stadium. This statue was later moved to the Center for Culture of Victoria Garden. By chance Jack Benny Way had crossed Rochester Avenue, which was not named after the character of Eddie Anderson of the Jack Benny Program. The name was given in 1889 because the home of the three brothers' investor was Rochester, New York. Mel Blank was one of the many popular media creations, and in the 1948 manga "Merry Melodies", Duffy Duck in "Dafi Sleeps Here", and in the 1960s, "Rooney Tunes" manga, Bugs Bunny repeatedly made the catch phrase.
The duo of surfing in California, "Jean and Dean," incorporated Benny's phrase into the lyrics. "Anaheim, Azusa and Kukamonga Sawing Circle, Book Review and Timing Association (Liberty 55724)," the B-side of "Ride the Wild Surf" which became a hit in 1964.
