New Additions to the City of Eastvale

Staff Reports

Eastvale – On October 1, the City of Eastvale turned 9-years-old!  Over the last nine years, the city has grown with new businesses opening almost every month. Here is what’s expected to open soon.            

On October 2, the City of Eastvale announced that the Little Eastern Café will be opening this fall at The Station.  Little Eastern Café will feature a delicious menu of Taiwanese and Japanese fusion.  The Station is located at Hamner Avenue and Cantu-Galleano Ranch Road in the Goodman Commerce Center.

In addition, Fire Station 31 is having an Open House on October 12 in honor of National Fire Prevention Week.  The event will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Fire Station 31, located at 14491 Chandler Street in Eastvale.  The open house will include a static display, fire station tours and demonstrations for all ages.

Fire Prevention Week is observed each year during the week of October 9 in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire, which began on October 8, 1871, and caused devastating damage, according to the City of Eastvale. 

“In a fire, mere seconds can mean the difference between a safe escape and a tragedy,” states the City. “Fire safety education isn’t just for school children. Teenagers, adults, and the elderly are also at risk in fires, making it important for every member of the community to take some time every October during Fire Prevention Week to make sure they understand how to stay safe in case of a fire.”

Another big project we have all been waiting to be completed is the I-15 Limonite Avenue Interchange Project. The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will take place on November 14, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. The ceremony will be held at the Park & Ride located at 12105 Limonite Avenue, Jurupa Valley.

The City of Eastvale and City of Jurupa Valley will be celebrating the new Limonite Avenue bridge that connects our two cities.  The new design will feature a new 8-lane overcrossing; 3-through lanes in each direction plus 2 turn lanes; widening of the off-ramps from two to four lanes; the addition of two new loop on-ramps; and widening of Limonite to four lanes in each direction between Hamner Avenue and Wineville Avenue.

To RSVP for I-15 Limonite Avenue Interchange Project ribbon cutting ceremony, please email trollings@jurupavalley.org or call 951.332.6464.

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.”

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.”

EASTVALE: Here We Grow Again


eastvale park mayor addresses crowd

By K.P. Sander and Jennifer Madrigal

Eastvale – The brand new Eastvale Community Park opened on Saturday, March 8, to a crowd of excited Eastvale residents. Representatives from the Eastvale Mustangs JAAF and Cheer, AYSO Soccer, Empire Soccer, Chivas Soccer, CrossFit Eastvale, and many others came out to promote their businesses. JCSD had demonstrations from various programs going on which kept both children and adults actively engaged throughout the day. Even with the dreadful Santa Ana winds, the event was a success.

The 160-acre parcel on the northwest corner of Limonite and Hamner Avenues is the ‘Cat’s Pajamas’ right now as far as real estate goes in the City of Eastvale. The massive property, owned by Dairyman, Brad Leal, has been the focus of discussion by the City Council, and even Eastvale citizens. Further exploration of the vision for the Leal Property was to be addressed at the City Council meeting on March 26, but discussion on the Specific Plan was approved to be continued to a later date. Stay tuned.

Ponino’s Pizzarena (located in the Ralph’s shopping center next door to the newly opened Soccer Wearhouse) opened without fanfare on Thursday, March 13 so employees could get into top form prior to the grand opening – coming soon; however, feel free to stop in for some hot, cheesy pizza right now.

You may have noticed that the Auto Zone at Archibald and Schleisman is now open. Still to come in that shopping center is Starbucks (gotta have one on every corner, right?), Fantastic Sam’s, Mes Amies Hair and Nails, Dentistry with Nihar Tanna DDS, Juice It Up, and the Great Harvest Bread Company (if you are not familiar with this business, you are in for a real treat).


The City of Eastvale has so much to be proud of, and so much to look forward to. The City is working on entryway monuments and directional signs that will be a beautiful welcome for citizens and visitors in the future. Yorba Elementary is planning its grand opening for July 6, 2015. And our second fire station will benefit our City next year as well.


EASTVALE – Here We Grow Again (Update)


Eastvale – It seems like you can’t drive on any main street in the City of Eastvale without seeing a significant construction project underway.  If you’ve been following this article, you know that our beautiful City, already home to more than 57,000 residents, is in the process of building out the majority of the open land still available.

Our population will increase through the hundreds of homes being constructed throughout the City, and jobs will become available through new businesses – with revenue generated through both key components of a thriving metropolis.  It’s exciting to see the transformation of Eastvale, especially if you have been here for a while.  It almost makes the few cows you see here and there seem quaint, instead of being responsible for the successful agricultural Dairyland it was decades ago.  But time marches on and progress continues for Eastvale.

As decisions are still being made for one of the biggest pieces of acreage, the Leal property on the northwest corner of Limonite and Hamner avenues, other projects are nearing completion.  Auto Zone and Starbucks, at Archibald and Schleisman, look to be opening their doors soon.

Desi Arnaz Ranch

The Desi ‘Arnaz Ranch’ located behind the Desi Collection Models at Estancia East and West

The beautiful new homes, Estancia East and West, located at Citrus and Granja Vista del Rio just opened their stunning model homes.  The Desi ‘Arnaz Ranch’ home is visible from the models, directly behind the Desi Collection model.  This is perhaps the most charming of all the new homes and an obvious tribute to Mr. Arnaz’ love of Spanish style architecture, with equestrian and musical décor abundant throughout.

There are a few new businesses coming to Eastvale.  Look for Tio’s Tacos and Cellular Repair to open soon in the Gateway Center (next to Pick Up Stix); and Boba2Go Coffee and Tea (next to Albertson’s).
