Preserving Quality of Life and City Services in Redlands
Take our survey

As the City of Redlands plans for the future, we are taking a close look at the public safety services, local infrastructure, public facilities and city programs that our community relies on.

For example, we want to ensure that we are able to keep up with basic repairs and maintenance to public facilities, storm drains and sidewalks because when these repairs are not addressed, they become a lot more expensive to repair in the future.
