Shedding Light on
Adelanto's Economic Outlook:
BALDY MESA + STORAGE PROJECT
The City of Adelanto is thrilled to welcome AES to our community! AES is developing and delivering clean energy solutions for communities across California. The industry leader recently broke ground on the Baldy Mesa Solar + Storage Project on a privately owned site north of El Mirage Road that will ultimately house 150 MW of solar and 75 MW of battery storage.

Amazon, the largest corporate purchaser of renewable energy, announced earlier this year that they will purchase power from the Baldy Mesa project and other renewable energy projects to help meet their pledge of powering their operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025, which is expected to be met five years earlier than promised. To learn more about Amazon’s sustainability efforts, visit their website at https://sustainability.aboutamazon.com.

Here in Adelanto, this not only means a step towards a cleaner environment and a boost in the local economy, but also ensures more green jobs for our residents. Mayor Gabriel Reyes and the City Council are committed to a proactive approach to industry growth and changes, and we're getting ahead of the pack with this recent development!

Community Cleanup Event
WORKING TOGETHER TO CLEAN UP THE CITY
The Adelanto Code Enforcement Department and Public Works team worked together to pull off another amazing event last month in conjunction with Burrtec Waste: the Community Cleanup on October 22nd.

Thanks to the participation of Adelanto's citizens, the city's staff was able to remove a significant amount of debris from our properties and streets. Nearly 225 vehicles came through that day, allowing Burrtec to clear out 2 roll-offs of tires, 3 roll-offs of metal, 10 dumpster trucks, and 12 pallets of electronic waste! To put it in perspective, each roll-off is 24 feet x 8 feet x 8 feet and pallets are 4 feet x 4 feet x 4 feet.

The success of these events is completely dependent upon the participation of our community residents. Fortunately, Adelanto's citizens stepped up with many individuals volunteering their time to pick up trash from roads, collect tires, and bring in household garbage. 

The City of Adelanto is looking forward to organizing another Community Cleanup early next year. For more information, please visit the Code Compliance website at www.ci.adelanto.ca.us/173/Code-Compliance or call (760) 246-2300.
Infrastructure Improvement
MOJAVE DRIVE & BELLFLOWER STREET
Did you know that there are several ways the City of Adelanto can help keep your roads smooth and safe? Potholes and minor cracks are considered normal "wear and tear" when it comes to paved roads, especially here in the desert where extreme temperatures expand and contract the materials that go into the asphalt.

The Adelanto Public Works Department and our engineering team evaluate each report of damaged roadways and make expert decisions on how to best repair our roads. Sometimes, simply filling in a pothole or crack will do the trick. Other situations call for resealing when small sections of the road must be completely repaved. Finally, asphalt overlay or complete replacement is sometimes needed.

Recently, the Adelanto Public Works Department partnered with Hillcrest Inc. to conduct major restoration repairs at the intersection of Mojave Drive and Bellflower Street. The crews are working hard to keep everyone as safe as possible throughout the process and maintain a smooth traffic flow. Our team is cognizant of prime commuting hours and nearby school schedules, and we make every effort to keep traffic moving during peak traffic times.

This project is progressing quickly! After the repaving is complete, crews must wait one full week before painting in order to ensure the lines stay easily visible for as long as possible. 

As crews near the finish line on this project, they've already got their eyes set on other road repair projects throughout the city. Whether it is filling in a pothole or repaving an entire intersection, the City of Adelanto's team is ready and willing to help.

Remember, it all starts with you, the citizens of Adelanto! If you see a city road in need of repair, please reach out to us so we can address your concerns. For more information, please visit the Street Department's website at www.ci.adelanto.ca.us/187/Street-Department or call the Public Works Department at 760-246-2300, ext. 3075.
Community Development
CANNABIS EQUITY ASSESSMENT AND OUTREACH
The City of Adelanto is in the beginning stages of developing a local cannabis equity program designed to remove barriers to entry into the legal cannabis industry for individuals and communities that have been impacted by cannabis prohibition and the War on Drugs. Earlier this year, the City was awarded grant funding from the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) through the Cannabis Equity Grants Program for Local Jurisdictions to conduct a cannabis equity assessment. The purpose of the cannabis equity assessment is to understand how cannabis criminalization has impacted communities in Adelanto and to develop recommendations and policies to inform the development and implementation of the City's cannabis equity program.
The City, in partnership with SCI Consulting Group, will be hosting several community meetings, stakeholder interviews, and surveys to gather information and data from the community to inform the equity assessment. The public is encouraged to attend public/community meetings and complete the online survey to provide input regarding the City’s equity program. The community survey is available at the following link: City of Adelanto Cannabis Equity Survey
