City Council Approves Resolution in Support of Canyon Springs High School Stadium

A majority of the City Council passed a Resolution providing conceptual support for construction of a stadium on the site of Canyon Springs High School.  

Building a stadium would complement academic and extracurricular activities at Canyon Springs High School, as at all of Moreno Valley's other comprehensive high schools.  Earlier this year, the City conducted an informal survey of residents of the area near Canyon Springs High School to solicit their views on the proposed stadium. Responses to the City’s informal survey indicated a 2:1 ratio of support for a stadium at Canyon Springs High School.

Construction of a stadium on the Canyon Springs High School site must comply with all applicable laws and regulations, and the School District is actively working through the environmental review process.   City staff will work closely with the School District to address issues of mutual concern and address any impacts on Westbluff Park, which is adjacent to the school site.   

Police Explorers Promoted to Senior Leadership Roles

Pictured top to bottom: Sophia Fitz promoted to Explorer Captain, Alex Chavez promoted to Explorer Lieutenant, and Zachary Navarro promoted to Explorer Sergeant.

Congratulations and thank you for your continued support and dedication to the City of Moreno Valley!

Meet Officer Santistevan and K9 Ozzi 

Officer Santistevan and his K9 partner Ozzi have been serving the residents of Moreno Valley for the last 5 years, helping chase down and arrest suspects and sniff out illegal drugs.

Ozzi and Officer Santistevan are constantly interacting with our residents and delivering invaluable service to our community.

Earlier this week Officer Santistevan and Ozzi were assisting a resident and thanks to Ozzi’s training and Officer Santistevan’s handling they quickly identified a potentially life-threatening situation that would have otherwise gone unnoticed before it was too late. Great police work prevented the resident from being seriously harmed.

Although Ozzi’s primary assignment is chasing down bad guys and sniffing out drugs, he really likes just being a dog.  Whether he is at a school presentation or a demonstration, Ozzi is always excited to show off his skills, play fetch and be the center of attention.

Ozzi is not just a dog, he is member of our law enforcement family, a member of our community, and he excitedly serves the residents of Moreno Valley every day.    

Cardinal Glass Industries Doubles Production Capabilities

Cardinal Glass Industries, one of the first manufacturing companies in Moreno Vally's south industrial area, recently doubled its production capabilities at its facility located on Cardinal Avenue during a major expansion.

The new area consists of nearly 50,000 square feet and will expand Cardinal’s existing coated glass and optical mirror operations.

This new increase in capacity will help Cardinal keep up with growing demands of residential construction for the next twenty years and provide new job opportunities to the community.

This successful project was a collective effort from the Development Services Departments and Economic Development working closely with Cardinal throughout the design, approval and construction phases.


The one-year-old German shepherd was cold and shivering on a dirt floor inside a metal shed. Large patches of fur were missing from her coat and she was covered in scabs, an advanced case of mange.

Little did she know that guardian angels drive Moreno Valley Animal Control trucks.

Police officers who were at the home on an unrelated investigation discovered the dog and knew she needed help – and fast. They called Moreno Valley Animal Control officers who quickly took her to the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter to be examined. Veterinary staff diagnosed her with a severe case of Demodectic Mange, a painful, but not contagious condition, and began treatment immediately.

Over the next three weeks her fur coat began to grow back and the red, itchy skin and the pain began to disappear. The veterinarian said she will fully recover from her condition.

The case was presented to the Riverside District Attorney’s Office for review and possible filing of Animal Cruelty Charges.

A German Shepherd rescue picked up the dog to find her a loving home. And thanks to the guardian angels from Moreno Valley Animal Control she will never have to go back to that metal shed with the dirt floor.

San Michele Road Reopened After Improvement Project

The Public Works Department is happy to report that San Michele Road between Perris Boulevard and San Celeste Road has been reopened following a months-long project to add major infrastructure to the area.

A 56-inch storm drain and a 39-inch water main were installed and overhead electrical lines were moved underground.

The street’s curbs, gutters, pavement and sidewalks were also improved.

Work associated with the project located on the southwest corner of Perris Boulevard and San Michele Road is expected to be wrapped up in the next two weeks, weather permitting.

The Public Works Department appreciates your patience during this improvement project.
