Eastvale – Even amongst a pandemic, Eastvale continues to grow.  Below is a recap of recent updates and new additions that have joined Eastvale.    

On July 3, the City of Eastvale announced that Fire Wings is coming soon to the Eastvale Gateway Food Court.

On June 30, the city announced the success of the Automated License Plate Read (ALPR) systems that were installed last year. “ALPR systems are high-speed, computer-controlled cameras that automatically capture vehicles’ license plate information, compare the plate number to one or more databases available to law enforcement personnel, and send alerts when a vehicle of interest has been observed,” stated the City.

The City installed 30 fixed ALPR systems (located on entry and exit points of the city) that have “scanned over 32 million license plates, with approximately 14 thousand successful alerts. The mobile ALPR systems, installed on law enforcement vehicles servicing Eastvale, have scanned over 450 thousand license plates, with approximately 260 successful alerts. These combined alerts have led to the recovery of 43 stolen vehicles and 13 arrests for charges including the possession of a stolen vehicle. The data retrieved from these ALPR systems have also been used as evidence to assist in a large number of investigations that led to numerous arrests,” stated the City.

Community Support Among COVID-19

Staff Reports

Eastvale – This month, the coronavirus (COVID-19) caused businesses to close instead of open. However, the Eastvale community continued to grow in a different way, as residents and City officials have come together to combat COVID-19.

As of April 6, the Riverside University Health System reported 29 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 1 confirmed death in the City of Eastvale. Several residents have shown concern with the increase of cases in the city. But a third Riverside County community testing site has been established at Harvest Christian Fellowship church in Riverside for residents who want to be tested for COVID-19. Those who want to be tested can call 800-945-6171 for an appointment. To get tested, you must have symptoms and have an appointment before showing up at the church parking lot. Drive-ups without appointments cannot be accommodated. For more information on the COVID-19 and new testing facilities, please visit: https://www.rivcoph.org/coronavirus.

The City has also done their part to provide resources to the community and remind residents to only leave your house for essential services, practice social distancing, and wear a face mask when leaving your house. In addition, a wide variety of helpful resources are currently available via the City’s Facebook page. They’ve shared videos of Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams showing how to make your own face mask and Councilmember Clint Lorimore showing how to wash your hands properly. The city has also posted a Riverside County Department of Public Social Services COVID protocol list, showing what to clean when you get home from buying essentials. Also shared was a caution to be aware of price gougers and scams. Price gougers are subject to criminal prosecution, which can result in imprisonment and/or a fine up to $10,000. You can report price gouging by filling out the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office price gouging complaint form: https://bit.ly/2WfQNID. For more information on price gouging, please visit: https://bit.ly/2R7onx5. Also shared was a Riverside University Health System announcement recommending to “Stay in Place, Maintain Your Space, and Cover Your Face” when out completing essential tasks. For more information please see the following video: https://vimeo.com/402767450.

Support for law enforcement and first responders has also been tremendous as local organizations and community members have donated supplies. Eastvale residents dropped off care packages last month to the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station. Eastvale Kiwanis also donated protective equipment to the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station. Lastly, the Eastvale Chinese American Association donated 1,000 N95 masks to the City to distribute to first responders and City personnel.

Local businesses are also being supported by the community. The City announced two Great American Take Out days in March, suggesting community members order takeout from local restaurants for the next month. They also listed businesses in Eastvale that are offering take out or delivery. The list can be found at: Eastvaleca.gov/coronavirus. Several businesses have even offered special times for individuals who are seniors, pregnant, or disabled. This list includes: Masala House Grocery (open from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. for seniors), Smart n Final (open at 7:30 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. for seniors, pregnant women, and disabled), Albertsons and Vons (open from 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. for vulnerable at-risk people and seniors), Target (open from 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. on Wednesday mornings to seniors 65+ and those with medical conditions) and Ralph’s (prioritizing seniors in line). In addition, Supervisor Karen Spiegel hosted a Riverside County Business Resources Town Hall meeting to discuss how businesses impacted by COVID-19 can obtain additional assistance or more information on the Federal Government’s CARES ACT.

Our children are also supported during this time, especially after CNUSD extended their closure date to June 19, 2020. The district’s Free To-Go-Meal Program is available during the temporary district-wide school closure. This program is open to all students 18-years-old & under as long as someone in their family is enrolled in CNUSD. For more information, please visit: http://bit.ly/3a1FbNE. JARPD and JCSD Parks & Recreation have both created virtual portals for our community to have fun, stay educated, and find resources throughout these uncertain times. JARPD’s Virtual Portal can be found by visiting: https://www.jarpd.org/virtual-recreation. JCSD Parks & Recreation’s Virtual Portal can be found by visiting: https://www.jcsd.us/services/parks-and-recreation/jcsd-to-go.

The City of Eastvale has also offered some ease by announcing they will not be enforcing street sweeping violations through Thursday, April 30, (with the date being subject to change). However, they will still enforce violations that pose a risk to public safety and health. Those include parking in front of fire hydrants, along red curbs and in disabled/handicap stalls without a placard.

The City of Eastvale also partnered with the Eastvale Chamber of Commerce to form the “Eastvale COVID-19 Restaurant Relief Fund”. Donations received will be utilized to purchase gift cards/certificates from our local Eastvale restaurants to infuse money into our small business economy, who have been significantly impacted by the lack of dine-in customers during the Governor’s Stay at Home Order. Those gift cards/certificates will then be distributed to public safety personnel, other essential workers, and local residents and families affected by COVID-19. If you wish to donate, please visit the Eastvale Chamber of Commerce website at: https://www.eastvalecoc.org. If you have any questions, please email info@eastvalecoc.org.

Lastly, the city of Eastvale have closed their doors, but they remain available online or by phone Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. You can contact staff by emailing info@eastvaleca.gov or calling 951.361.0900.

Did you hear? Heroes is coming to Eastvale!

Heroes will be located at Hamner Place, located at the intersection of Hamner Avenue and Schleisman Road, bringing a new dining experience to our city.

We’ve heard our residents loud and clear when it comes to elevating dining experiences in Eastvale and we couldn’t agree more! The Eastvale community deserves a diverse variety of options for family outings and special occasions.

This past year, we have been working hard on restaurant recruitment and attraction. We surveyed all our restaurants to identify what type of dining options were missing. We also conducted a Restaurant Feedback Questionnaire to better understand our community’s ideas on future development of restaurants in our community.

It was important to the City that residents help lead us in the right direction as we focus on recruitment and attraction as part of Economic Development. Since then, we have been meeting with restaurateurs to identify how we can elevate dining experiences in Eastvale.

Stay tuned for more exciting news regarding dining experiences!

Here We Grow Again: DICK’s Sporting Goods is Coming to Eastvale

Staff Reports

Eastvale – Eastvale continues to grow as new restaurants, centers, and businesses are coming to town.  The newest edition to the Eastvale community is DICK’s Sporting Goods.  DICK’s is expected to open in summer 2019, bringing a new look to the Eastvale Gateway Center. 

“Eastvale is an active community where both adults and children participate in sporting events,” said Mayor Todd Rigby in an announcement on May 9. “We have numerous sports leagues for our residents to participate in. We are excited for DICK’S Sporting Goods to open a location in Eastvale!”

DICK’s is a popular sporting goods store that sells high quality sports equipment, apparel, footwear, and accessories.  Their products include some of the most popular name brands in the sporting business.  In addition, DICK’s provides great customer service and offers exclusive deals on various products.  Their Eastvale store will be a great edition to the Eastvale Gateway Center.

Lewis Retail Centers is also pleased to partner with DICK’S Sporting Goods to open their newest location.  “Lewis Retail Centers is dedicated to working with cities and businesses to build strong and vibrant communities,” said Eastvale Gateway Developer, Randall Lewis, in a news release. “We love being a part of Eastvale’s amazing growth and know DICK’S Sporting Goods will be warmly received by Eastvale’s wonderful community.”

“We are excited to have the largest sporting retail store in the country coming to Eastvale,” added City manager Bryan Jones. “We encourage our very active community to shop local for all of their sporting good needs!”

In addition to DICK’s coming to Eastvale, the Vista Medical Group has officially started construction.  Their Ground Breaking Ceremony took place on April 19.  The Eastvale location will be at the Marketplace at the Enclave, which is at the corner of Schleisman Road and Archibald Avenue.  This will be Vista Medical Groups’ fourth location and their largest yet, according to the City of Eastvale. 

Vista Medical Group is a family practice that strives to provide quality and affordable healthcare.  Their new location will offer urgent care, occupational medicine, and general health care services for patients of all ages. 

Here We Grow Again: Sprouts is Coming to Eastvale

Staff Reports

EastvaleThe City of Eastvale officially announced that Sprouts Farmers Market will be coming to Eastvale!  The grocery store is expected to open in summer 2020, according to the City.  The new Sprouts will be located at the future Merge Retail Center on the northeast corner of Archibald Avenue and Limonite Avenue.  The store will bring approximately 140 career opportunities to the Eastvale community. 

Many community members expressed their excitement of being able to shop locally for healthy items.  When the City of Eastvale announced the opening on their Facebook page, thousands of community members liked the post and hundreds commented on the page.  The post was also shared 253 times in an effort to spread the news to family and friends. 

Mayor Todd Rigby was also pleased to announce the opening of Sprouts and discussed how the store will benefit the Eastvale community.  “With Sprouts coming to the northwest portion of our city, this will help to provide a grocery store to our residents in that area of town,” said Rigby.  “We look forward to adding Sprouts to the successful businesses we have here in Eastvale. This addition will give our residents another healthy and economical shopping choice.”

Sprouts Farmers Market is a grocery store with fresh, natural, and organic products at affordable prices.  As one of the fastest growing retailers in the country, Sprouts offers bulk foods, vitamins and supplements, bakery, and so much more.  Be sure to check out their Butcher Shop, Fish Market, and Market Corner Deli for high-quality meat, seafood, and freshly prepared entrees and sides. 

The Eastvale Sprouts will not be the only business in the Merge Retail Center.  Starbucks was recently announced to join Sprouts in the same center.  In addition, a Walmart Superstore will be located across the street at the southeast corner of the same intersection.  The City announced that Walmart is expected to open in 2022.  Also, Archibald Avenue plans to be widened as part of The Merge project.

Here We Grow Again: Eastvale Celebrates Community Safety Achievements

By City of Eastvale

Eastvale– Safety continues to be a top focus for the City of Eastvale and we are prioritizing community safety in an effort to maintain a safe environment for our community to live, work, play, and shop. We are working hard to enhance the safety in our community through collaborative endeavors that include advancements in public safety, investments in technology, and the active participation of residents in the Neighborhood Watch Program.

Additional Motorcycle Officer and Additional Patrol Hours

The Eastvale City Council heard the community’s desire for increase public safety and in February 2018, they approved an additional Motorcycle Officer position to enhance the safety of our roadways. Most recently, we welcomed our second Eastvale Police Department Motorcycle Officer, Deputy Lionel Murphy, who will be joining our current Motorcycle Officer, Deputy Paul Lonthair in keeping our streets safe through enforcement. City Council also approved 10 additional patrol hours, which equates to two additional deputies and are anticipated to come in the next year.

“We would like to welcome our new Motorcycle Officer, Deputy Lionel Murphy to the Eastvale Police Department family. I am confident that the addition of Deputy Murphy will help reduce the number of traffic collisions and increase the overall safety of the city.”

ALPR (Automated License Plate Reader) Program

We believe advancements in technology is one of the most crucial parts of public safety. The City of Eastvale is in the process of implementing an ALPR (Automated License Plate Reader) Program. ALPR cameras will be installed on patrol vehicles as well as various entry and exit points to the city. This tool will help our Police Department combat and deter crime, assist with investigations, and help identify wanted vehicles.

Streetlight Acquisition

We also believe that increased visibility through lighting is another important part of safety and are pleased to announce that the City of Eastvale purchased 4,078 streetlights located within city limits from Southern California Edison (SCE). Previously, these streetlights were owned by SCE and maintained by the Jurupa Community Services District. With the partnership of the Western Riverside Council of Governments, the City of Eastvale will acquire all eligible streetlights in Eastvale. As part of the acquisition, the City looks forward to retrofitting each streetlight with Light Emitting Diode (LED) fixtures; an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional lighting. LED lights align with the City’s strategic goal to enhance public safety by using less energy and producing a more natural light on street surfaces. Acquisition of these street lights will also serve as a revenue stream for the City of Eastvale while we bring better cell phone and internet carrier service to the city.

Neighborhood Watch Program

We know that community safety cannot be fully achieved without the help from our community and Eastvale is the only city in the nation to have every residential neighborhood engaged in the Neighborhood Watch Program. In 2017, Mayor Todd Rigby, Mayor Pro Tem Brandon Plott, and community member, Don Pettinger began the implementation of the Neighborhood Watch Program in an effort to bring residents together to help combat and deter crime in their neighborhoods.

Today, all twenty-nine neighborhoods in Eastvale have Neighborhood Watch Groups established, there is a total of 60 Block Captains who meet quarterly, and every neighborhood entry and exit have Neighborhood Watch signs installed. Social media has played a key piece to the Neighborhood Watch Program and residents have shared valuable information through the “Eastvale Crime Watch & Reporting” Facebook page. In addition to communicating through social media, Neighborhood Watch Meetings take place throughout the year and have approximately sixty-five residents in attendance on average.

“On behalf of the Eastvale Police Department, I would like to thank the community for their continued support and for sharing valuable information with us, which has led to the immediate apprehension of several suspects,” Chief Tim Martin said.

The significant decrease in mail thefts was the first of many success stories that the Neighborhood Watch Program experienced. With the increase of communication and residents implementing crime prevention measures to their homes, the average mail thefts reported per month decreased from twenty-six in 2017 to six in 2018.

Camera Database Program

One of the other successes the Neighborhood Watch Program has had is their camera database program which allow residents to input their surveillance system information in a database for law enforcement access. Approximately ten different arrests have been made with the help of this database in place. This program truly shows the amount of pride residents have for the city they live in and that they are passionate about being a part of enhancing safety in their community. Residents can share their surveillance system information to be included in this database by visiting: http://bit.ly/eastvalecameradatabase.

Proactive Enforcement

Lastly, the safety in our community would not be possible without the continued proactive efforts made by the Eastvale Police Department. We recently recognized our local Special Enforcement Team (SET) and the Marijuana Eradication Team (MET) for an award recently received by the California Narcotics Officers Association for outstanding Quality of Life Investigations involving indoor marijuana grow houses. We are incredibly grateful for the deputies who serve our city every day to keep us safe and maintain the quality of life in Eastvale.

Aggressive Solicitation Ordinance

To address aggressive solicitation, City Council adopted an “Aggressive Solicitation” ordinance on May 2018 and also installed “It’s Ok To Say No To Panhandling” signs throughout the City. We want residents to feel comfortable enjoying our community and the aggressive solicitation ordinance seeks to enhance resident safety by prohibiting solicitation in an aggressive manner. This ordinance allows deputies to respond to incidents of solicitation that either put the person being asked for money in danger or are done in such a manner to make an individual feel as if they have no choice but to donate money.

“As a community, it is important for us to partner together in achieving a safer city,” Mayor Todd Rigby said. “With the residents embracing the Neighborhood Watch Program, the City installing new technology, and the Police Department increasing patrol hours and adding an additional Motorcycle Officer, we are seeing the results of a safer community. I look forward to the continued involvement of our community in being committed to keeping our residents, businesses, and visitors safe in our city.”

“Together, we can send a message that Eastvale has created a multiprong approach of preventing and solving crime to enhance the quality of life and safety,” City Manager Bryan Jones said. “I am confident that all of us in Eastvale will continue to collaboratively invest our time and energy in resources to elevate community safety. We all deserve the opportunity to thrive in the place we call home!”

The City of Eastvale would like to remind its residents and businesses to be vigilant by reporting suspicious and criminal activity as soon as its seen to the Eastvale Police Department. If you see something, say something. Maintaining a safe environment is a team effort and we are grateful for our team that is made up of our Eastvale Police Department, residents, businesses, and partnering agencies. Together, we are best.

Here We Grow Again: Eastvale Welcomes Sunshine Growers Nursery

By City of Eastvale

The City of Eastvale is proud to announce that Sunshine Growers will be coming to Eastvale! On Wednesday, October 17,2018 the Eastvale Planning Commission approved the development of a new 20,000-square-foot greenhouse and retail store for a new plant nursery at Sunshine Grower’s new location on Riverside Drive, east of Hamner Avenue.

“We are thrilled that Sunshine Growers has chosen to expand their business in our young and growing community,” said Mayor Clint Lorimore. “I am certain that our community will benefit from the variety of plant options that Sunshine Growers will provide, and I look forward to seeing how Eastvale homeowners will beautify their landscaping following the opening of this new business.”

This locally-based, family-owned business will be moving from Ontario, bringing jobs and approximately $4-million in taxable retail sales to Eastvale. Sunshine Growers is a family of wholesale and retail nurseries that sell quality plant material to the community and to landscape contractors. When they open, Sunshine Growers will be the only full-service plant nursery in Eastvale, providing a great local option for the community to continue to enhance landscaping around their homes, keeping our city beautiful. Sunshine Growers will carry the best-suited plants for the Eastvale community based on environment, typical weather, and placement. Having a local nursery will allow pest and other environmental problems to be easily identified.

Sunshine Growers has also been extremely supportive of both the Eastvale Community Fruit Tree Project as well as the Eastvale Garden Group. These supportive efforts have included donating trees to the Eastvale Community Fruit Tree Project, hosting classes for the Eastvale Garden Group, and donating gift cards to these groups.

“It’s an exciting time to grow your business in Eastvale!” said Interim City Manager Bryan Jones. “Their success is our success and I am confident our residents and businesses will give Sunshine Growers a warm welcome.”
