Welcome to the Office of the Mayor
The mission of the Office of the Mayor, derived from the City Charter, is threefold:
Represent and advocate for the interests of residents
Work with City Council to develop public policy
Act as chief communicator and ambassador for the City
The programs managed by the Office of the Mayor aim to fulfill each element of that mission. Two initiatives that are major strategic focuses for the Office of the Mayor are the Love Your Neighbor Initiative and the Innovation District. The Love Your Neighbor Initiative aims to address challenges associated with homelessness in Riverside. The initiative has been instrumental in building the community partnerships needed to expand housing options and provide appropriate support services to our neighbors without homes. Our efforts to move the Innovation District in Riverside from vision to reality will be an investment in jobs and diverse and affordable housing options for our children and grandchildren.
