Apple Valley’s sound budget and conservative financial management have positioned us for growth, even in the current economy. Infrastructure planning is a top priority at a time when we can get the most for our money. With the current state of the economy, dollars spent in construction go much farther than they did a few years ago.

In 2009 we broke ground on both a Town Hall Annex and a new Animal Shelter. Funding comes from a combination of redevelopment agency funds and certificates of participation earmarked specifically for these projects, and both projects came in significantly below estimates.

Using a multiple prime bidding process, rather than going out for one bid for a general contractor, individual trades had an expanded opportunity to get in on these jobs, and a number of high desert businesses were successful. Between salaries, construction costs and other “trickle down” factors, the economic impact of these two projects combined are injecting nearly $42 million into the local economy.
