A Message from the City Manager

During the month of March, the City of Fontana is springing into the new season with events that encourage healthy living, Earth appreciation and Easter celebrations.

Residents are walking their way towards healthy lifestyles with the Fontana Walks! Community Challenge. Even with February being a short month, residents were able to log over 300,000 steps, bringing the step total to 1.6 billion out of the 2 billion-step goal. Residents are encouraged to log their steps every Thursday via our website. The next community walk, hosted by Healthy Fontana, will take place at the Steelworkers’ Auditorium at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 17.

Fontana is a proud member of the Tree City USA program. For the past 22 years, the city has and will continue to strive to plant and nurture our trees. In celebration of Arbor Day, the City of Fontana will host an event at the Mary Vagle Nature Center on March 29, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. Third-grade students from Randall Pepper Elementary and Cypress Elementary will have the opportunity to visit Mary Vagle for an exciting day of hands-on environmental learning activities and an exotic animal demonstration.

Fontana families can also bring their children to three different events this month for an Easter egg hunt, jumpers and games at the following locations on March 31 from 10:00 to Noon:

  • Cypress Neighborhood Center at Seville Park
  • Jessie Turner Center at Fontana Park
  • Don Day Center at Southridge Park

We look forward to a productive year ahead and appreciate your cooperation as we all work to continue to make Fontana a shining example of exceptional municipal service. Whether you are here to live, work or play, we know that Fontana is a great place to be.

All the best,

Ken Hunt
