City Manager's Update - Summer 2015
The City of Ontario continues to be the center of significant growth, development, and opportunity for our residents, businesses, and a growing number of visitors. We are working each day to enhance our recreation and entertainment opportunities, to make our community the premier entertainment destination for the region.
In the Fall of 2014, the City Council brought together volunteers, downtown arts stakeholders, and the Greater Ontario Convention and Visitors Bureau, to launch an arts and culture strategic planning initiative. This newly formed committee has designed a new arts and culture website at ontarioarts.org and is developing a series of new projects to leverage the opening of Ontario Town Square and the many existing arts and culture assets in our Downtown. Their new centralized calendar at ontarioarts.org is a great way to learn about upcoming activities that promote arts and culture in the Downtown District. Ontario will be the arts and culture center of the Inland Empire.
On March 18, 2015, the City Council hosted nearly 1,000 community leaders at the 2015 Ontario State of the City. The event featured dynamic keynote speakers and a networking opportunity for business and community leaders to forge new economic partnerships. An event highlight reel as well as all videos featured during the State of the City is now available at www.OntarioSOC2015.com.
This Summer Ontario will once again celebrate some long standing, world class events. The Huck Finn Jubilee will be held on June 12-14, 2015 at the Cucamonga-Guasti Regional Park. This event features RV and tent camping, traditional “Americana” activities, and live bluegrass music throughout this iconic three day music festival. On July 30, 2015, the City Council will host our award winning National Night Out. This annual event provides the community an opportunity to engage with the City Council and staff on a variety of neighborhood issues and helps build long lasting partnerships between community members and public service professionals. For more information, please contact the Ontario Police Department Ontario Police Department Crime Prevention Unit at (909) 395-2939.
On behalf of the City Council, I would like to thank you for your continued support of development in Ontario, and I look forward to seeing you at the annual Independence Day Parade and Picnic in Downtown Ontario along Euclid Avenue on the Fourth of July.
