HEMET – Riverside County 3rd District Supervisor Chuck Washington has announced that road, parking lot and other improvements will be made to the Exchange Club Park at Mayberry and Fairview Avenues in Valle Vista this summer.
The road improvements will include minor street widening, curb, gutter and a sidewalk along Mayberry Avenue and Fairview Avenue. The parking lot, also receiving improvements, will be shared between the future park developed by Valley Wide Recreation and Parks District and a new Early Childhood Education Center being developed by the Hemet Unified School District.
“This project will improve traffic and pedestrian safety while providing an ADA compliant pedestrian path for Valle Vista Elementary School students and their parents,” Washington said.
The work will be completed during the school’s summer break. The project will be funded utilizing the Gas Tax/HUTA Funds, 3rd District Development Agreement Public Facilities Trust Funds Hemet Unified School District, and Valley Wide Recreation and Parks District funds in accordance with a three party agreement approved in January.
“It is a prime example of what can be accomplished when multiple agencies collaborate to fill a need in the community,” Washington said.
Washington also announced recently, the collaborative effort to develop a funding pathway for the Idyllwild Community Center. The county of Riverside, Economic Development Agency (EDA), County Service Area 36 and the San Jacinto Mountain Community Center board are joining forces to complete the much anticipated 8,000 square foot facility.
