Upland Gets A Facelift And Job Growth

Carol Timm helped revitalize Upland with façade improvements and successfully brought businesses and jobs to Downtown District 4. As Chair of the City Council’s Economic Development Committee, Timm has promoted and increased Economic Development throughout the city and attracted and assisted many new businesses including one of only three Whole Foods in the U.S. this year bringing in additional revenue to the city.  She advocated for Low interest Loans and Grants to improve and revitalize the Historic Downtown as promised and expanded job growth through the “City of Hope” and with forgivable loans to downtown business hiring Upland residents for jobs for two years or more.

EUCLID AVENUE AND FOOTHILL GET A FACELIFT IN
DISTRICT 4
Challenges are always ahead, but the progress made these past years are evident
through out our city. When you walk up historic Euclid Avenue you will see just how
far we have come. The trees look better than they have in years, thanks to an aggressive street maintenance and trimming program. We have also repaved Euclid
Avenue. Additionally, this program included parts of Foothill Boulevard, which is
also in our District.

PROJECTS TO IMPROVE DISTRICT 4
On the schedule for summer 2018 in District 4 are the full rehab of streets, historic curbs and infrastructure improvements for Third Avenue from A Street to 11th… 9th Street, from 3rd Avenue to Campus Avenue, and Campus Avenue from 7th Street to Foothill Boulevard in 2019. The bike path will receive $100,000 for improvements to slurry and stripe the whole bike path. In addition the city has also gotten a grant to plant 67 trees along the path and will get signalization on Euclid to make it safer. I helped start, “Friends of the Bike Path,” to change and improve our path through the southern half of the city.

NEW DEVELOPMENTS IN DISTRICT 4
Foothill and Euclid is seeing a total revitalization to the former Chick’s shopping
center with the coming of Burlington’s, Ross, Raising Canes, Starbucks and more.
The San Antonio Regional Hospital has expanded adding many new jobs to our
city, improving the medical care Upland needs. In addition, the City of Hope is
coming to our District to help Upland residents receive the highest quality of care
in cancer and cancer research. Memorial Park is getting a 4.2 million dollar facelift.
With my passion and experience we will move forward and District 4 will thrive.
