Moreno Valley Welcomes New
Tractor Supply Company
Moreno Valley City Council members joined representatives of the Chamber of Commerce recently to cut the ribbon on the new Tractor Supply Company store at Stoneridge Towne Centre, 27330 Eucalyptus Ave. Tractor Supply Company offers a wide range of products, from farm and ranch and livestock supplies to sporting goods, home living items and even tractors, as the name implies. Here's a brief video!
Free Masks Available at
Employment Resource Center
The City of Moreno Valley still has some free masks available. They are part of the City's "We've Got You Covered" initiative to give out 175,000 free masks to residents at local grocery stores and with several drive-thru events at City Hall. The remaining supply is now available at the City's Employment Resource Center (ERC) during regular business hours at 12625 Frederick St., Suite K3.
Mayor's Minute: Santiago Park
In this month's Mayor's Minute video, Dr. Yxstian Gutierrez, Mayor of Moreno Valley, is excited to break ground on what will be MoVal's 33rd City park. Learn about Santiago Park, coming in 2021!
A Visit to: Bethune Park
Speaking of parks, with its rows of mature palms and a nice mix of other trees, Bethune may be one of Moreno Valley's prettiest parks you've never heard of, unless you live nearby. Tucked away in a neighborhood at 16745 Kitching, next to Bethune Elementary, Bethune Park features picnic facilities, such as tables, shelters and BBQs, a playground with a water feature, plus two softball/baseball fields and two lighted tennis courts. Of course, right now, high-touch facilities and activities are restricted. But Bethune Park's beautiful open spaces are certainly worth a visit any time!
"Do I Need a Permit for a Yard or Garage Sale?"
Yard and garage sales are intended to allow residents to sell household or personal items. So a yard or garage or sale may not include new merchandise or other items purchased for resale. Here are some other yard/garage sale guidelines:

  • Permits are not required to hold a yard/garage sale.
  • Each residence may hold a maximum of three sales per year.
  • Yard/garage sales cannot be held continually from weekend to weekend.
  • Yard/garage sale merchandise cannot be displayed or conducted on public property (sidewalks, streets, alleys and parkways).

MoVal's Code & Neighborhood Services Division maintains a very useful and informative section on the City's website regarding permits, violations, parking and much more.
