Downtown Revitalization Plan Update

We’ve embarked on a major initiative to breathe new life into the heart of Corona – yup, our one and only Downtown!

Picture this: a perfect fusion of modern flair and historical charm, all set to redefine the center of our City. We’re not just changing the scenery; we’re giving Downtown Corona a whole new vibe. Each element of this revitalization project is a brushstroke in the canvas of the city’s vibrant future.

Recognizing that positive transformations take time, we invite you to stay informed as we make progress. Check out just a few of the initiative underway and stay connected.
