Sierra Avenue Valley Boulevard Land Use Study

Project Description
The Sierra Avenue Valley Boulevard Land Use Study is a Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) Compass Blueprint-sponsored project that seeks to address several interrelated goals in the area centering on the intersection of Sierra Avenue and Valley Boulevard in the City of Fontana. The Sierra-Valley area is a unique and diverse part of the City; it contains the City’s largest employer (Kaiser Hospital), sees some of its largest volumes of traffic, and contains one of its largest concentrations of shopping as well as residential neighborhoods with a mix of relatively affordable housing types. However, the area is also the most congested in the city and the limited amount of transportation alternatives further exacerbates the existing condition. Therefore, at this time, it is unclear to what degree the surrounding area can capitalize on the medical center’s activity. Due to the congestion and visual condition of the streetscape and surrounding uses, the area currently does not successfully convey the message that Fontana is a great place to live, work, and conduct business.

To address these challenges, the City applied for and was awarded the Compass Blueprint Grant from SCAG for the Sierra Avenue Valley Boulevard Land Use Study.
