This Week in City Hall, March 7

Council considers spending $1,470,470 of Measure Z dollars on Mt. Rubidoux trail

The asphalt trails leading to the top of Mt. Rubidoux

After blazing a new trail permitting the retail sale of cannabis last week, this week Council will focus on one of Riverside’s oldest trails. If it receives just 5 affirmative votes, $1,470,470 will be awarded to Onyx Paving Company for repaving of the Mt. Rubidoux trail. The proposed project includes maintenance and repair work to the asphalt trail as well as modifications to improve accessibility for fire vehicles during 4th of July fireworks events.

If approved, dollars for this project will be transferred from the City’s Measure Z fund to cover the project costs.
