The City of Jurupa Valley covers about 45 square miles. Most of the city is either semi-rural equestrian properties or suburban in character. However, specific areas, due to their history and location, began as small centers of commerce. The 2017 General Plan identifies specific areas within the communities of Rubidoux, Glen Avon, and Pedley as “Town Centers.” These centers are designated with the Town Center Overlay to encourage the development of traditional, pedestrian-oriented town centers with characteristics that distinguish them from surrounding areas. These areas are intended to function as walkable, small downtown environments that attracts locals to shop, dine and socialize, in keeping with their historic uses.
Over the next couple of months (November 2022-September 2023), the City of Jurupa Valley will be engaging with the community to talk about the future of the historic Pedley area. This historically rural part of the city is located around the intersection of Limonite Avenue and Van Buren Boulevard, perhaps the most significant crossroads of the city, adjacent to the Metrolink station, and extends down to the Santa Ana River. The Pedley area is also the civic hub of the community as it includes City Hall.
The Pedley Town Center Plan will create a long-term vision for this area of the city, and provide policy direction and guidance to residents, City staff, decision-makers, and the broader community. This Plan will guide development and public improvements to create a cohesive center that will anchor this historic area of the city and help solidify its identity within Jurupa Valley. The intent of this Plan is to clarify a unique vision and strong implementation strategies for the Pedley area.
