Due to the arrival of a significant number of new tenants, the Planning Commission allowed a revision to the Shops at Jurupa Valley project’s site plan. The City Council will now discuss the matter. The confirmed restaurants and stores will be shared soon.

Shops at Jurupa Valley Project

A 32-acre retail, dining, and commercial development on the intersection of Pyrite St. and Mission Blvd. was given the go-light by the City Council. When it is complete, the “Shops at Jurupa Valley” project will have more than 20 new structures and more than 230,000 square feet of retail and commercial space.


Retail shopping, grocery stores, sit-down and drive-through restaurants, car washes, petrol stations, and retail fitness centers are permitted. 

The shopping center will have plenty of outdoor eating, walkways, parking, and landscaping.

About Jurupa Valley

A team of committed community volunteers established the City of Jurupa Valley on July 1, 2011. It takes pride in being the 28th City in Riverside County and the 482nd City in California. The strong demand for improved police services and local control over zoning and planning issues served as the primary justification for incorporation.

Jurupa Hills, Mira Loma, Glen Avon, Pedley, Indian Hills, Belltown, Sunnyslope, Crestmore Heights, and Rubidoux are included in the 44-square-mile region that makes up the City. 

It shares borders with Eastvale and San Bernardino County to the west, San Bernardino County to the north, and Riverside to the south and east. The Santa Ana River passes through parts of the City’s southern region.

Other Projects of Jurupa Valley

Jurupa Road Grade Separation

With the completion of this project, Jurupa Road will have a new, four-lane underpass that runs beneath Van Buren Boulevard and the Union Pacific Railroad bridge. By segregating train traffic from cars, bicycles, pedestrians, and pedestrian traffic, the underpass will increase safety and traffic flow. 

Removing the need to wait for trains, the sound of train whistles, and the pollution produced by idle vehicles would also enhance the quality of life for Jurupa Valley residents.

Citywide Guardrail Replacement 

This citywide project aims to bring 12 distinct places’ worth of existing metal guardrails up to current Caltrans standards. Improved guardrails will increase traffic safety.

9,715 linear feet of additional sidewalk, 15 crosswalks, 19 ADA curb ramps, and pedestrian sign flashers will also be added as part of this project. On routes near Sunnyslope Elementary School with high pedestrian traffic, these other additions will enhance pedestrian walkability and road safety.
