Grand openings and projects started in Eastvale
Eastvale – Eastvale is continuing to grow with new stores opening and projects starting.
DICK’s Sporting Goods held its Ribbon Cutting on July 8 and its Grand Opening event from July 12 to 14. The new Eastvale Gateway store is located at 12399 Limonite Avenue. The Grand Opening included great prizes, fun activities, and a chance to meet professional baseball player Zack Cozart!
DICK’S Sporting Goods, is the largest U.S.-based, full-line omni-channel sporting goods retailer. The new DICK’S location in Eastvale opened up approximately 75 jobs to the community.
Another exciting announcement is that the Eastvale L.E.D. Retrofitting Project is now in process. In March 2019, the City of Eastvale purchased 4,100 streetlights from Southern California Edison (SCE) to place within the city limits. “We have now began the process of upgrading to new retrofitted LED lights, making the city streets much brighter at night,” according to City officials.
These new LED streetlight fixtures have been placed strategically in a distribution pattern that will not cast light backwards onto residents’ yards. They only cast light out far enough to cover the road surface and they will use 75% less energy than traditional streetlights. In addition, the lights “align with the City’s strategic goal to enhance public safety by creating more visibility,” according to the City.
A total of 1,118 lights have been converted citywide, which completes all the main streets (arterials). The entire project is expected to be completed by December 2019.
In addition, Eastvale’s newest Shop-Dine-Stay destination, Hamner Place, broke ground on July 12. Hamner Place will be located off Hamner Avenue and Schleisman Road. See the Hamner Place article for more information.
