Chino Hills, CA – The City of Chino Hills has scheduled a neighborhood meeting from 10:00
a.m. to noon on Saturday, July 28th to update the Los Serranos community on planned
capital improvement projects. A presentation is scheduled at 10:00 a.m. at Los Serranos
Country Club, 15656 Yorba Avenue. Attendees will learn how projects are planned,
prioritized, and funded. This is the third in a series of meetings held in Los Serranos to
provide information on neighborhood concerns.
“The Los Serranos community was taking shape in the 1920s when the rules were very
different,” said Rad Bartlam, City Manager. “There were no requirements to build street
lights, sidewalks, or even storm drains.”
According to Mr. Bartlam, the Chino Hills City Council has been setting aside Community
Development Block Grant Funds since 1999 to pay for basic infrastructure in the
community. The first project was launched in 2005 after enough funds had been set aside.
Mr. Bartlam said funding has also been secured through Safe Routes to School and Measure
I – the half cent sales tax approved by voters. From 2005 to 2018, over $19 million has
been spent on basic infrastructure improvements in the Los Serranos community, with
approximately half coming from City funds.
Public Works Director Nadeem Majaj will review a list of past projects and provide
information about ongoing and future projects. For additional information, please call the
City Manager’s Office at (909) 364-2610.
