Segment of Pigeon Pass Road to be Closed June 9 through August 8

Beginning June 9, Pigeon Pass Road will be closed to traffic from Old Lake Road to Meadow Lark Avenue as a result of the continuing development of the Meadow Creek Community. 

Pigeon Pass will reopen August 8. 

Construction on Pigeon Pass was scheduled to coincide with the school district’s summer break to limit the closure's impact on neighboring school traffic. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this closure may cause.

Girl Scouts Give Back to Moreno Valley Animal Shelter

The City of Moreno Valley would like to thank Brownie Troop 737 for their generous donation to the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter.

The Brownies brought in some much needed items including food, cat litter, towels, toys, and side by side bowls.

These items are always needed to help make the animals comfortable in the shelter as they wait for their owners to find them or are adopted into a new loving home.

This donation helped the girls earn their “Give Back” patches.

For more information about donating to the Animal Shelter or volunteering, please visit the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter's website.

Way to go girls!
