City of Ontario – California Highlighted as Part of Strong Cities | Strong State Campaign
The city of Ontario was recently profiled as part of the ongoing “Strong Cities | Strong State” campaign highlighting local government success stories across California. “Strong Cities | Strong State” is a project of the League of California Cities and the California City Management Foundation (CCMF).
“This city was designed from the beginning by the Chaffey Brothers to be the center of everything. This is where the crossroads of trade were, this is where the affordable land was, this is where the water was and this is where the jobs were. This is where you could bring your family and live and thrive and have the best of everything,” said Ontario Mayor Paul Leon. “It’s no different today and we’re going to keep it going in that direction.”
The city of Ontario’s profile is accessible at www.strongcitiesstrongstate.com/city/ontario.
The “Strong Cities | Strong State” website is the centerpiece of a campaign broadly promoting city success stories alongside profiles of the elected officials and city managers working together to build and maintain a high quality of life for California city residents.
Highlights of city of Ontario’s profile include:
- New and improved stores and shopping experience at Ontario Mills
- The continuing revitalization of the Historic Downtown Euclid District
“The leaders of our city understand how valuable it is to provide quality jobs for our citizens, and that these jobs are a key component to building a complete community where our residents can live, work and play” said Ontario City Manager Chris Hughes.
The overarching goal of the “Strong Cities” campaign is to promote the innovation and experience of local officials in delivering vital services at a time when this expertise is vitally needed by state leaders struggling with fundamental issues of governance. “Strong Cities | Strong State” seeks to position cities as vital, necessary and equal partners in building a better California.
The Strong Cities | Strong State campaign will continue profiling individual cities each day, with a goal of highlighting all California cities over the coming year-and-a-half. Profiles include photos, video and other media articulating how each individual city has been working to both provide essential services, as well as elevate the quality life of its residents. Success stories will range from public safety initiatives to educational partnerships, infrastructure improvements to community engagement strategies and more.
