4/5/12: Habitat Presents to JV City

4/5/12: Habitat Presents to JV City

Habitat for Humanity Riverside received a warm welcome from the City of Jurupa Valley at the city council meeting.  The presentation included pictures from the 28 homes Habitat Riverside has built & rehabilitated and the 20 mobile home rehabilitation projects in Jurupa Valley.  With a pink hardhat, Mayor Laura Roughton was officially invited to join Habitat’s Women Build project on 5/12 at our new Crestmore build in Jurupa Valley.  Mayor Roughton will literally be improving the Jurupa Valley community with her bare hands.

Union Bank presented a $20,000 “big check” and Donna Johnston represented Supervisor Tavaglione’s office to announce a $5,000 donation.  Both will fund the Jurupa Valley 4/28 community service day. Habitat Riverside received the honor of  an official declaration from the City of Jurupa Valley proclaims 4/28/2012 is “Habitat for Humanity Community Service Day”.  This day will include over 400 volunteers from the Jurupa Valley community, including members from the city council, local LDS churches, Supervisor Tavaglione’s Youth Advisory Council, and the the equestrian community. Three simultaneous rehabilitation projects will be taking place in the City of Jurupa Valley.  Horseshoe Lake Park, Veterans Memorial Park and Bravo Estates Mobile Home Park will be receiving renovations. This community collaboration illustrates how the residents of Jurupa Valley and the organizations involved are invested and wanting to make a difference.

    Being just a few streets down from horseshoe lake I am a little upset it was turned into a place to ride horses. If you haven’t noticed, the river is a stones throw away from the so called renovated park. They already have miles and miles to ride. That’s tantamount to putting a castle park next door to Disneyland. I know it was just an empty disgusting lot before but come on people. A regular park with sidewalks would look a heck of a lot better.

    Thanks for the feedback Freddy. It gives us a chance to see the impression residents have of volunteer projects. 4/28 volunteer day wasn’t intended to turn Horseshoe Lake Park into a place to ride horses, it was a simple cleanup. 4/28 volunteer day encompassed three parks. A major renovation of Horseshoe Lake Park into a regular park with sidewalks easily exceeds a $20,000 grant. JARPD was forwarded your comment and they plan to respond as well.
