I want to personally wish you and your family a very happy holiday season. It’s hard to believe the year is nearly over and here at City Hall, we are already looking at programs, projects and activities for the coming year.
On the horizon, we are looking forward to breaking ground for the long-awaited expansion of the Golden Valley Road bridge over SR 14 in January. The expansion project will add more traffic lanes and a dedicated bike path, helping ease congestion on the east side of town. Next year we are also looking forward to bringing two new parks on line, including the five-acre River Village Park and the six-acre Five Knolls Park. At Central park we will soon be in design for a new Tennis Center. We also have some great beautification projects planned that include low-water use plant materials.

Finally, I hope that you have an opportunity to visit Main Street this month. The City and our partners PayForward, Henry Mayo Hospital and the SCV Auto Dealers Association
have created a winter wonderland with festive lights, holiday décor and a 23-foot Christmas tree in front of the Old Town Newhall Library. For a list of events and happenings on Main Street this month, visit: www.OldTownNewhall.com
