City Manager's Update - Spring 2014
Ontario has long been a community recognized for job growth and strong community services. This year we continue that tradition with a series of new developments and a wide variety of recreational and educational programming for our residents. What follows is a snapshot of some newsworthy successes championed by your City Council.
The City Council’s commitment to infrastructure enhancements was once again realized last Fall with the completion of the North Milliken Grade Separation at Milliken Ave. and Guasti Rd. These City improvements eliminate the atgrade crossing for trains by elevating trains over major thoroughfares throughout the City, easing traffic congestion. The beginning of another grade separation at Milliken Ave. and Mission Blvd. just launched and will be completed in 2017. Concurrently, the Vineyard Ave. Grade Separation project has commenced and will improve access and traffic flows to the Ontario International Airport and surrounding business districts by the end of 2016.
Development in the southern part of the City is off to a very strong start in 2014. Nine specific plans have been approved encompassing 2,919 acres. These plans propose the development of 10,760 single family residences, 5,233 multi-family residences, 1.6 million square feet of commercial space, and 550,000 square feet of business park. The recent investment of over $50 million has resulted in significant infrastructure improvements including streets, water, sewer, storm drain and water reclamation systems.
I have been given clear direction by the City Council to continue the Set ONTario Free campaign and our resolve to transfer the Ontario International Airport to local control. We will continue to work diligently with all parties and the entire Southern California region to bring back our most important economic engine and job creator.
Our Mayor and City Council will host the 2014 State of the City on March 19, 2014, at the Ontario Convention Center. Hosting three industry experts, the Mayor and City Council will demonstrate Ontario’s status as a leader in transportation planning, business growth, and innovation.

Finally, I want to thank the Ontario Mayor and City Council for giving me the opportunity to serve this community. I am truly humbled, and I look forward to furthering the vision of the City Council and ensuring that our community continues to be a model of public service excellence for all.
