What Are YOUR Priorities for Moreno Valley?
The City of Moreno Valley seeks your input during the budget process!

City Officials look to our community to identify their priorities for key City services and efforts that will maintain our community's high standards of living.

Recent state and federal changes mean our City must continue to work hard to protect our financial stability and quality of life against legislative policies that may potentially affect the funding Moreno Valley receives.

In past years, the City conducted a series of community surveys which asked the public about a range of issues, including satisfaction of the services we provide and issues of concern for the community.

Some of the priorities identified by your neighbors in that survey included:
  • Maintain 911 emergency response times/services
  • Maintain robbery and burglary suppression programs
  • Protect local funds from State or regional money grabs
  • Maintain safe and clean public areas
  • Repair potholes, local streets, and roads
  • Maintain the number of Police Officers and Fire Engines in service
  • Improve fire protection services
  • Enhance recreation and youth programs and facilities

Moreno Valley Officials would like to hear more from you as we continue this year’s budget planning process. The City is committed to continuing to reflect your priorities in our budget decision-making.

Please join the conversation, and tell us your priorities by completing a Community Feedback survey.

City to Make Road Improvements at Grant Street

The intersection at Alessandro Boulevard and Grant Street is scheduled to receive new street improvements that will enhance pedestrian access, safety, and traffic flow.

The street renovations will include installation of a new traffic signal, a modified left turn lane, the removal of the existing median, and installation of new pedestrian access ramps with American with Disabilities Act (ADA) upgrades.
