Ontario has several scattered commercial and residential areas that are in need of housing rehabilitation and reinvestment. These areas have smaller, investor-owned multiple-family projects that were built with inadequate parking, open space, and amenities, and these projects have deteriorated. In addition, several commercial areas are also underperforming. To address these areas, the City created the Cimarron Redevelopment project area. In 2007, the Project Area was substantially expanded to include areas throughout the community, including significant residential areas surrounding the intersection of Fourth Street and Interstate 10. Several sites proposed for residential development are located in that area. To further stimulate investment, the City will continue to acquire sites within the project area, remove blighting influences, and sell acquired property to developers to build affordable housing.
