The last few weeks have brought lots of good news to the City of Adelanto. Mayor Reyes and the City Council have been hard at work improving quality of life throughout our city.
ADELANTO SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM ANNOUNCED BY MAYOR REYES
Recently, Mayor Gabriel Reyes announced the creation of the Adelanto Scholarship Program. Starting later this year, graduating students who plan on attending a local college or university will be eligible to apply to receive scholarship funds from the new program.
Funded by taxes collected from the cannabis industry that have brought millions of dollars annually to the City of Adelanto, Mayor Reyes and the City Council approved the new Adelanto Scholarship Program to encourage local students to continue their education and pursue their dreams.
“I would like thank my Mayor Pro-Tem Daniel Ramos who spearheaded this effort,” said Mayor Reyes.
Mayor Pro Tem Daniel Ramos added, “The cannabis community is showing its strength, commitment and dedication to being and doing MORE for our Adelanto community. It’s an amazing feeling to know that Adelanto will be the second city in the country, and the FIRST city in the State of California, to fund college tuition for our youth through cannabis revenue. The biggest takeaway of all this, is the fact that families lives WILL be changed forever, and we will now be breaking a generational curse that has held our children back for many years. Thank you thank you thank you to our amazing cannabis community, we salute you!”

FREE MOBILE FOOD DISTRIBUTION SET TO RETURN MARCH 15
Working with the Community Action Partnership, we have arranged for the Mobile Food Distribution trucks to make their monthly return to the City of Adelanto on March 15. See the attached flyer for more information.
NEW SHOPPING AND APARTMENTS COMING TO ADELANTO
Mayor Reyes and the City Council have been focused on creating jobs here in Adelanto, and last week they voted to give Adelanto more options for housing and shopping, approving 200 new apartments and a 9,000 square foot residential retail center. These new apartments will help give residents more options for housing, and the new shopping space will allow our economy to continue to grow. Best of all, this project will create both temporary construction jobs and permanent retail jobs right here in Adelanto.
Fulfilling a longtime pledge by Mayor Gabriel Reyes and the City Council, the City of Adelanto began cleaning up rundown properties as part of a Blight Abatement Program.
Many of these properties have been long overdue for removal, and a few weeks ago the City began clearing out the first of these eyesores. Keep a look out for more of these projects in the coming months. We’re committed to improving every part of our community.
Water Report Crystal Clear
Did you know that citywide, Adelanto goes through more than 53 million gallons of water every month? 53.599 million gallons, in fact.
And despite that much water flowing, we’re able to do that with no arsenic and non detectible amounts of iron and manganese. Pretty amazing what our professionals who run the Adelanto Water Treatment System take care of every single day, so all we have to know is when we turn on the faucet, clean water is going to come pouring out.
For more information on our City’s water, take a look at the most recent report prepared by the experts who work with City Hall:
City of Adelanto Ends Busy 2021 With New Parks and Continued Sidewalk Repairs
Finishing a transformational year for the City of Adelanto, Mayor Gabriel Reyes recently announced a number of infrastructure improvement projects that mark just the latest steps in the City’s comeback.
BIG INVESTMENT IN ADELANTO'S PARKS
In recent weeks, Mayor Reyes and the City Council have invested millions of dollars in fixing and expanding our parks in Adelanto. Marconi Park was approved for an overhaul and we’ll soon be seeing a brand new football field there. In addition to the rehab being done at existing park space, the City also recently received funding to build a brand new local park. Between the two projects, Mayor Reyes and the City Council have dedicated almost $3.5 million to Adelanto’s parks, increasing quality of life for every resident.
CONTINUAL SIDEWALK REPAIR
You might’ve already noticed, but our crews have been out and hard at work. All across Adelanto, we’ve been repairing sections of broken sidewalk. Stay tuned, there’s lots more of that ahead, too. Mayor Reyes and the City Council have instructed staff to make sure repairs to our roads and sidewalks remain a high priority.
CAPPING OFF A BUSY YEAR
These accomplishments mark just the latest in what’s been one of the busiest years in Adelanto’s history. With more jobs, more housing, the first balanced budget in years, and more opportunity than anytime in the past, Mayor Gabriel Reyes has been leading Adelanto’s comeback. By letting business owners know Adelanto is a place that welcomes job creators, the City has really started to live up to its motto as the City of Unlimited Possibilities. And by reinvesting that increased revenue back into the community, the City of Adelanto is moving fast, working hard, and getting the job done for its residents.
