In case you hadn’t previously heard of the possible annexation to Corona of an unincorporated block south of city’s incorporated area, Corona is considering adoption of a resolution to annex just under 16 square miles of an unincorporated area of South Corona. The subject of the potential annexation stretches from Weirick Road to just south of Sycamore Creek (near Indian Truck Trail).
Some of the main changes that residents would notice from the annexation of this area (which we refer to as the Wildrose, Sycamore Creek, Trilogy area) are as follows…
Currently the area receives law enforcement support and services from the Riverside County Sheriff. Under annexation, the City Of Corona would provide these services from the Corona Police Department. Corona Police Department maintains a five minute average emergency response time and once annexed, Wildrose/Sycamore Creek/Trilogy can expect similar response times… as opposed to the current Riverside County Sheriff response times (which are, as Nacho would say, Estinky).
After annexation, then city residents would have access to the full menu of City of Corona services, including involvement in city government and city council meetings, city licensing, etc.
Under annexation, an additional fire department would need to be deployed in the annex area to keep response times at a level expected by the city of Corona.
Recreation services would surely see benefits under annexation. Corona currently has a robust menu of recreation services and programs to enrich the city. These programs and services include recreational classes (family oriented), facility rentals (for meetings and parties), picnic shelter reservations (again for meetings and parties), special events, adult and youth sports programs, after school recreation, senior programs, summer aquatics, and even summer camps. The city maintains these recreation grounds under their general operation funds.
There is some opposition to the annexation of the Wildrose, Sycamore Creek, and Trilogy area. You can join the opposition when they congregate to learn more. If interested, you may join other residents opposed to annexation on Friday, January 25th from 4 to 8pm at Tom’s Farms Wine And Cheese Shop to sign a formal letter of opposition. You may also desire to visit the Corona City Council meetings for more information. For additional information regarding annex opposition, call 951-277-0383.
