Eastvale Community Foundation (ECF) Hangs New Military Banners

By Jennifer Madrigal


Eastvale – The Eastvale Community Foundation (ECF) has begun the process of ordering and hanging new Military banners in the City. They recently replaced all the old mountings on 43 poles with heavy duty, hinged hardware that will help support the banners through our strong winds; and they removed all the broken banner arms. They also adjusted all the banners – including nine new tributes – to the height of 14 feet from the street. This adjusted height should eliminate the possibility of trucks hitting the lower arms.

The ECF has hired the Dekra-Lite company to produce the banners. The new material consists of two banners sewn together to provide extra durability.

Greg Coker – a recently retired Army Master Sergeant and new ECF board member – is now managing the program. While some of the details of the program are still being finalized, applications for the banners are available on the City’s website.

The ECF will be replacing banners previously removed due to damage, provided the individual is still in active military duty (which is the qualifier for all banners).

While the replacement of all previously removed banners will take some time to be mounted, the ECF is hoping to complete installations every few months. Going forward, newly approved banners will be set up with the next scheduled installation, once manufacturing is completed.

The ECF is very excited to be handling this program. “Honoring our military personnel is something that we are passionate about. Seeing all the nice, neat banners hanging proudly along Archibald fills my heart with pride,” said ECF Executive Director, Sharyn Link.

Eastvale: Support The Eastvale Community Foundation



eastvale-community-foundation-logoEastvale – Raising money, having fun, and getting the community involved is what the Eastvale Community Foundation (ECF) is all about. The ECF is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization made up completely of volunteers, created by the Eastvale City Council in 2011 as a way of helping to assist with needs throughout the City.

The mission of the ECF is to strengthen the Eastvale community by collaborating with the City Council to identify needs and issues, and encourage the volunteering of time, talent, and resources.

The ECF is committed to serving the Eastvale Community, and has provided over $50,000 in youth scholarships for Eastvale youth sports and art programs in the last two years.

According to Sharyn Link – who has been an ECF Board Member for quite some time, as well as Executive Director of the foundation for the last year – the ECF donated scholarships to approximately 100 children in 20 different programs this year.

You can help support the ECF’s actions by attending or sponsoring their Second Annual Golf Tournament coming up on August 15, which will benefit programs in the City of Eastvale. The tournament will be held at the Los Serranos Country Club and the cost for this event is only $125 per person, although teams save $50 if they sign up as a foursome. The price includes 18 holes of championship golf, dinner reception and a few surprises.

This year, the primary goal of the golf tournament is to support the Military Banner Program, according to Link. “We want to raise enough money to provide all new hardware so the banners can withstand the Eastvale winds.  We also want to replace all of the banners that have been damaged or are missing.  Our Military personnel deserve our highest respect and honor and we plan to make our Military Banner Program show them that Eastvale is proud of them and thanks each and every one of them,” said Link.

Last year, the ECF raised over $20,000 at their 1st Annual Golf Tournament and their goal this year is to raise $30,000.  All proceeds from this event, and all their fund raisers, stay in Eastvale.

“Our long term goal is to help provide monument signs and way finding signs for our City.  We want people to know where Eastvale is when they drive into town,” said Link.

“I would like to encourage everyone to support the Eastvale Community Foundation throughout the year, but especially now for the golf tournament.  We can use sponsors, golfers, and if you don’t golf and can’t make it out during the day, come to the dinner in the evening.  We have a no host cocktail hour commencing at 5 p.m. and dinner will be at 6 p.m.  We have some amazing raffle prizes, silent and live auction items and a few surprises thrown in this year. It is a very fun evening and we encourage residents to come join the fun,” said Link.

Nine amazing board members have been putting in a lot of hours to put on this year’s golf tournament. According to Link, they also have a Golf Committee consisting of some Eastvale residents who have been helping with the planning of the tournament. On the day of the tournament, Link says that they will need about 40 people helping in order to make it as big of a success as last year’s event.

Eastvale: City Council Recap 01.22.14

By Jennifer Madrigal

Eastvale – This month, there were two city council meetings. Here is a recap of what happened at both meetings:

The Jan. 8 meeting was attended by Council Members Ric Welch, Jeff DeGrandpre and Bill Link, along with Mayor Pro-Tem Adam Rush and Mayor Ike Bootsma. The invocation was led by Pastor Mark Lee of Vantage Point Church. There was a presentation by Darin Acevedo with Eastvale Pop Warner of a framed jersey to the City of Eastvale in appreciation for all their help. Michael Armijo of Eastvale Community News gave an update on the newspaper and on the Eastvale Chamber of Commerce.

Consent Calendar was passed 4-0-1 with Link abstaining. Item 5.2 which amends the zoning code to allow the placement of temporary signs in the public right of way, subject to Limits on Time, Place and Manner, was pulled for discussion. Motion was carried 4-1 with Welch voting No.

There were no Public Hearing items, or Old Business items. The New Business Items section was as follows:

8.1: Reaffirm or Select New Appointments to the Eastvale Community Foundation: 5-0 to re-affirm current appointments.

8.2: Reaffirm or Select New Appointments to the Planning Commission: 5-0 to reaffirm current appointments. They opened up an application for the vacant position and voted to decide on a replacement at the Jan. 22 city council mtg.

8.3: Reaffirm or Select New Appointments to the Public Safety Commission: DeGrandpre expressed concern about current functioning of the commission and would like another look at its operation and an outline of expectations. Bootsma also asked the commission to set meeting dates permanently for the commission. Motion was carried 5-0 to move this item to the Feb. 12 City Council Meeting.
8.4: Mayor Appointments to Outside Boards/Commissions: This list of appointments can be found on the City of Eastvale website.

The City Manager did not give a report and the meeting adjourned at 7:02 with closing comments from the Council. The information above was taken from the City of Eastvale Council minutes.

The Jan. 22 City Council meeting was attended by Council members Welch and Link, along with Mayor Pro-Tem Rush and Mayor Bootsma. Council Member De Grandpre was absent. The invocation was led by Pastor Ed Moreno with New Day Christian Church.
During the Presentation section of the meeting, the City of Eastvale recognized City of Eastvale volunteers for their service and dedication to helping the city.
The consent calendar with items 5.1 – 5.10 was approved 4-0-1.

The Public Hearing Section of the meeting began with Item 6.1 General Plan amendment, change of Zone, Major Development Review and Conditional Use Permit for the development of an Arco Gas Station facility, A convenience store, restaurant, and drive-through automatic car wash facility in one building, a second building for a sit-down restaurant, and a third building for a drive-through restaurant on an approximately 1.7 acre site. A second Conditional Use Permit is also being requested for the operation of a gasoline service station with concurrent sale of beer and wine in the Arco AM/PM convenience store. The City Council approved the project by approving resolutions 14-05-14-08 with a vote of 4-0-1. This property is located on the corner of Hamner and Riverside Drive.

Council Members asked about the high traffic of the industrial area on that street and whether that had been considered in the plans. In response, they were advised that it is probable that Riverside Drive will be widened in that area to four lanes or about 60-70 feet curb to curb. Council Member Welch also shared that there will be a trail consistent with Jurupa valley Equestrian trails in that area and that Jurupa Valley (not JCSD) will be in charge of landscaping and maintaining it.
During the Public Hearing Section of the meeting, a representative for the above project spoke about his general happiness and excitement for this project to proceed. He also shared that for building two of this project, they had tenants like Subway and Starbucks in preliminary discussions.

The Old Business Items section of the meeting began with Item 7.1: Appointment of Planning commissioner to replace William Link. The council approved Jeff DeGrandpre’s candidate, Larry Oblea as a new City Planning commissioner. Mr. Oblea came highly recommended with great references from his time as a planning commissioner for the City of Santa Fe Springs.

New Business item 8.1 Selection and award for consultant for Traffic Engineering On-Call Support- Iteris, Inc. was passed 4-0-1. Iteris, Inc. will now handle traffic signal design and operation on the 56 traffic signals throughout Eastvale. The cost is tied to specific projects as they occur. Item 8.2 Ordinance relating to establishing speed limits on city streets was also approved 4-0-1. This item calls for the amending of speed limits on three more sections of Eastvale. These speed limits were determined after a traffic study was conducted. Council Member Link questioned how these speed limits are determined. City Manager Jacobs explained that the speed limit is based on the speed that 85% of the vehicles travel on that stretch of road. Thus the speed limit will be adjusted on the following sections of road: 65th to Hamner to 35 mph, Hamner Citrus/Schleisman to 50 mph and Schleisman to Archibald to 50 mph.

The City Manager’s Report was given by Carol Jacobs. She announced that the 3rd Annual State of the City Address will be held at Roosevelt High School on March 27. She also announced that the City will be starting a pilot program with code enforcement on the weekends. They will be keeping track of code violations and having code enforcement at different periods throughout the weekend in order to see what time period is most effective. According to Jacobs, “This new weekend program is expected to be painful to start as most new enforcement usually is.”

During the Council Communications portion of the meeting, the Vehicle License Fee issue was discussed. Council Member De Grandpre and Mayor Pro-Tem Rush were able to get a support letter from the California Association of Governments to Senator Roth and they are hopeful it will help improve the chance of the bill passing. Welch and Bootsma again thanked the volunteers to the City of Eastvale for all their help and Bootsma expressed his desire for some type of annual event to recognize these volunteers. The meeting was adjourned at 7:10 pm.
