Upland High approaching last phase of improvements

For almost a decade Upland High School has under gone major changes that include two new buildings, renovation of the library and more is still to come. "We've created a much more positive environment with the students with fresh air and adequate lighting," said Guy Roubian, Upland High School principal. Many of the upgrades and additions were made possible through Measure K, which was passed by voters in 2000, said Steve Cary, assistant superintendent for business services. The measure was a $36 million bond which funded classroom-related improvements. Currently the school is looking to complete the landscape of their vast quad space as the last phase of Measure K. http://www.dailybulletin.com/news/ci_4795657

Each day me and tens of thousands of others jammed Baseline Avenue and Foothill Blvd. each morning counting down the days to the freeway Grand-Opening - Watching as the Caltrans workers slowly made progress - inch, by painfully slow, inch.

In addition to freeway projects, Measure I provides funds for major street improvements throughout the San Bernardino Valley. These funds are used for major rehabilitation, construction or reconstruction of main thoroughfares, also called arterial streets. A Measure I Arterial Program Five Year Plan is adopted each year to allocate funds for these streets. The following streets have been improved or identified for improvement since Measure I's passage: Widening of Baseline, City of Highland Widening of E Street, City of San Bernardino

Memories of the Grand Prix Fire in October 2003

Prior to July 2006, the last big fire we had in the Inland Empire was the Grand Prix fire in October of 2003. Although I have lived in the foothills (Monrovia, Azusa, Upland, and Rancho Cucamonga) all my life - and never any further from the mountains than 1/4-mile, never had a brush fire affected my family the way the Grand-Prix fire did.
