City of Corona is conducting a survey to determine the needs of citizens and what kind of development they would like to see in downtown Corona.
The survey was floated because the city plans to revitalize the Downtown, and the City of Corona would like to understand priorities of its Residents, Visitors, Workforce, Businesses, Non-profits, Schools, Commercial Brokers, and Investors.
If you live in Corona City, you can fill out the survey here.
Other Developments in the Riverside County
New developments are taking place in Riverside County. We reported about Riverside being named in Inc. Magazine’s 50 Best Places in America for Starting a Business. We wrote that:
“A surprising statistic from Inc.’s study is that Riverside, CA has 92.4 startups for every 1,000 businesses, greater startup density than in San Jose, San Francisco, or Boston. Startup density is measured as the number of newly established employer businesses to the total employer business population (in 1,000s).”Startempire Wire
Other developments include Residence Inn by Marriott in Riverside, CA, which will be 226 rooms, eight story hotel. Irvine-based Greens Development will build an eight-story, 226-room hotel in downtown Riverside, incorporating the former downtown fire station.
Chicano Art is also coming to Riverside, CA in May 2022 with the opening of The Cheech Marin Center. Riverside Art Museum will host his new art center around Chicano Art. It will be dedicated to Cheech Marin, an art collector for Chicano Art.
With these commercial happenings in the works, there’s also a place for Riverside County to have 20k homes by 2030. On Oct 5, 2021, the Riverside City Council voted 5-2 approving a plan that opens the possibility of the county adding more than 20k houses, townhomes, and apartments by the end of 2030. Nonetheless, there remains strong opposition in some parts of the county where developers have proposed to build new housing.
Our goal at Startempire Wire is to act as a megaphone to connect the dots between the best startups, events, and people in the Inland Empire. Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel, and like/follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
