Mayor Scott Nassif
As the fall and winter seasons approach us, I am excited to share some updates and upcoming events happening in the Town of Apple Valley.
First and foremost, I want to extend my gratitude for the overwhelming community support and engagement we received during our recent Listening Session at the donated AMC Theatre. It was great to see residents come forward and share their insights on how to make the most out of that space. Collaboration will be key in making this transformation successful and we are excited about what the future holds for the theatre.
Looking ahead, we have a calendar packed with fall and winter activities that you won’t want to miss! To stay updated on these events, I encourage you to visit our website at applevalley.org. There, you’ll find detailed information from our Halloween Spooktacular to the Annual Christmas Tea. There is something for everyone to enjoy.
The Town announced a few commercial developments coming to Apple Valley: Sprouts Farmers Market, Raising Cane’s, Love’s Travel Stops and Cold Stone Creamery! The High Desert’s first ground-up Sprouts Farmers Market will be constructed on the south side of Bear Valley Road, east of Apple Valley Road. This shopping center will include Raising Cane’s. A Love’s Travel Stops was approved at Stoddard Wells and will become Apple Valley’s first retail presence along Interstate 15. Cold Stone will be located at the Apple Valley Commons and tenant improvements are underway. These commercial developments are exciting additions to Apple Valley, and we look forward to new opportunities that come to town.
In response to increased traffic at Yucca Loma and Apple Valley Roads due to the Green Tree Bridge opening, the Town is exploring traffic improvement measures. New traffic counts and studies will be conducted after construction on the Bear Valley Bridge and a new gas station at Yucca Loma Road to assess ongoing traffic impacts. The Town is now working on an interim project to widen Yucca Loma Road to 4 lanes from Apple Valley Road to Choco Road, contingent on securing funding, which will determine the project timeline.
As we prepare for the upcoming fall and winter seasons, we are grateful for the support and collaboration of our community, and we are excited about the upcoming events and new commercial developments that work towards our goal of creating a “Better Way of Life” for our residents and visitors.
