People who know Riverside recognize what an outstanding city it is and understand that its infrastructure, historic core and neighborhoods reflect its greatness.
As Riversiders look ahead 20 or 30 years, it is clear that NOW is the time to make choices that will determine our future – to become a City of Arts & Innovation known for its outstanding quality of life, attracting diverse and dynamic people, encouraging innovation and working together for the common good.
Riversiders and thought leaders came together in 2009 to create an agenda that will build a City that our children and grandchildren will love as much as we do, and be proud to call home, Seizing Our Destiny is that agenda for Riverside’s Innovative Future. Read the original Seizing Our Destiny report.
As a guide that leads to the future we desire, it is built around the necessities that people want from their City – a strong economy, welcoming places to gather and be entertained, an able workforce, art in all its forms, opportunities to learn, quality health care and respect for the earth and one another. Civic leaders, nonprofit, neighborhood and faith-based organizations, local businesses, City government and elected officials are joining forces to make this agenda a reality through collaborations on a number of initiatives and projects.
