Measure L: The Hotel Tax - General Information

The Moreno Valley City Council recently voted to place Measure L on the 2016 November ballot for the residents' consideration. Measure L is a hotel tax and is not a tax on residents or local businesses. Measure L is not a tax on residents, and would be paid by out-of-town visitors, tourists, and any other persons when they stay at a hotel or motel in Moreno Valley. If approved, Measure L would create a locally-controlled source of funding for vital city services such as police, fire, 9-1-1 emergency response, libraries and street repair.

Strategic Plan

The Moreno Valley City Council charted a plan for the future by adopting the City's first Strategic Plan this summer. Momentum MoVal, is the result of an incredibly collaborative effort among participating residents, Council Members, business owners, and other stakeholders in the City's future.
This strategic plan will align the City's resources and creative energy toward meeting objectives identified by the community and approved by its elected leaders. As a dynamic and forward-leaning endeavor, Momentum MoVal identifies the City's top priorities for the next three to five years while allowing the City Council to adjust priorities as needed to address emerging issues. It's a living document with a laser focus on achieving the aspirations of our diverse community.

Moreno Valley is proud of its military heritage and those serving our country. In support of hometown military personnel and their families, the City installs Military Appreciation Banners along major thoroughfares.   While the military banners recognize the men and women who are currently serving in the United States Armed Forces, the program promotes patriotism and civic pride in our community.
Military banners can be viewed online via the City's new GIS-based banner mapping tool. The new online map can be found here .

Avoid a Scary Halloween,
Follow these Safety Tips

Be safe this Halloween! The only things that should be scary are the costumes and decorations.
General Safety Tips Include:
  • Be aware of surroundings and report any suspicious activity to police.
  • Walk on sidewalks and drive-ways whenever possible. Avoid alleys and short cuts.
  • Cross the street at corners with crosswalks.
  • Always travel in groups that are properly supervised by an adult.
  • Only accept candy in the doorway of a residence.
  • It is safest to use a flashlight or battery-operated candles in a jack-o-lantern.
  • Remember to keep exits clear of decorations, so nothing blocks escape routes.
  • Please keep dried flowers, cornstalks and crepe paper well away from all open flames and heat sources as they are highly flammable.
For more safety tips, visit the Moreno Valley Fire Department webpage.
