Please mark your calendars for these upcoming City Council meetings. We’ll need strong turnouts

at all of them to show our Councilors that we care about a RightSized Riverside.  

Your voices and presence make a difference!


Upcoming Events

Although zoning has passed, there is still a lot of work ahead!

We expect Mark Development to file a revised special permit application in December 2019 for a mixed-use project to fit within the 1.025 million square feet compromise zone that the City Council approved on Nov. 18. 

The Council's Land Use Committee will then consider this special permit application. We expect those hearings to begin in January 2020. Community members will have an opportunity to raise concerns about traffic, design, fiscal and school impact, environmental issues, etc. 

We encourage you to attend these meetings to show Councilors that we care about a RightSized Riverside!

We will share more details as they become available.
