A recently conducted survey indicated that Moreno Valley residents strongly prioritize public safety and quality of life services. As we continue to prepare for the future, we are committed to protecting and maintaining the vital city services to make Moreno Valley a better place to live, work, and raise a family.
Over the last 10 years, the State has taken over $50 million in locally controlled funds from the City. More than 2/3rds of Moreno Valley residents believe that the City needs additional funding to protect and maintain key city services.
Maintaining rapid 9-1-1 emergency response times is among our top priorities. Fast response times to 9-1-1 calls are critical for saving lives. Moreno Valley is working hard to maintain the rapid response times of our City’s paramedics, firefighters, and emergency medical workers who are the first to respond and save lives.
We are also working to preserve vital youth services. Studies show that between 3 and 6 p.m. – the hours after school ends and before parents typically return home from work – children without an after-school activity are three times more likely to get into trouble. Supervised after-school park, recreation, and library programs are essential to keep children safe, off the streets, and out of trouble.
The community survey also showed that Moreno Valley residents support other key city services, such as:
- Maintaining robbery and burglary suppression programs
- Maintaining safe and clean public areas
- Repairing potholes, local streets, and roads
- Enhancing recreation and youth programs and facilities
