Join Mayor Gutierrez to Beautify MoVal
Mayor Yxsitan Gutierrez is on a mission to keep Moreno Valley beautiful, and he is calling upon everyone to help.

Will you answer the call?

This month's edition of Mayor's Minute highlights the City's exciting new Beautify MoVal program. Beautify MoVal is the City of Moreno Valley's community care initiative, which allows community members to take responsibility for keeping a City park, trail, or road clean, either by volunteering or by sponsoring a clean-up.

Kawhi Leonard, Mayor Gutierrez & New Balance Team Up for Sneaker Giveaway Event
Every kid deserves a fresh pair of kicks (also known as sneakers). Mayor Gutierrez, New Balance, and Kawhi Leonard agree, which is why they teamed up for the Kawhi's Kicks Giveaway event.

Children enrolled in "A Child’s Place," the City's afterschool child care program were treated to this special shoe and gift giveaway event to ring in the Spring season on Thursday, April 1, 2021. Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez, Community Advocate Miesha Slayton, and City Staff worked together to distribute over 120 pairs of New Balance shoes at the City's Conference and Recreation Center.

The Mayor and City Council look forward to their continued partnership with New Balance and the Leonard family to seek new opportunities to serve the Moreno Valley community.

Pet of the Week: Apollo
Our Pet of the Week is Apollo. He is a playful Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull mix that just turned one. Apollo is a friendly puppy with energy to spare. He is great on a leash and would make the perfect pet for an active family that likes to stay in motion.
