City of Lancaster Weekly Road Closures through June 7, 2020
Lancaster, CA – In an effort to improve our neighborhoods and city streets, the City of Lancaster conducts a variety of road construction projects which will ultimately benefit our citizens. While these construction zones typically restrict traffic flow for an interim period, the results provide smoother roads and better infrastructure in various locations throughout Lancaster. Additionally, a number of community events take place year-round throughout the City, resulting in temporary traffic detours during event setup, activity, and breakdown. The City of Lancaster strives to provide as many opportunities as possible for community gathering and engagement.

City of Palmdale's Coronavirus Update – 5/28/20
Hi, this is Palmdale City Manager J.J. Murphy with your May 28 COVID-19 update.

One of the most frequent questions I hear from our residents is “When are we going to open businesses again?” That is a good question, and a tough question because we all know that our residents need to work and earn a paycheck to put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads. This pandemic has caused economic shockwaves across the world, and Palmdale has not gone unaffected.

However, our community has risen up to the challenges we’ve been facing and I’m here to say that there is a light at the end of a dark tunnel.
Because of your collective efforts in flattening the curve, by following the guidance on social distancing, wearing facial coverings, and by participating in the testing provided, our medical statistics are strong.

Then, by giving us your input through our business town hall meeting, we were able to draft a comprehensive plan that we submitted to Supervisor Kathryn Barger’s office to help us safely and sensibly reopen our local businesses, houses of worship, parks and other amenities. Our Palmdale re-opening plan has been requested by communities throughout California. We’ve also been in collaboration with the cities of Santa Clarita and Lancaster to partner on a North County Coalition to make the case that we have a different set of circumstances facing us here than in the rest of LA County.

Interested persons need to register by emailing info@cityofpalmdale.org and note “Mental Health Town Hall” in the subject line. City staff will reply with the details for accessing the Zoom meeting.

“Our first mental health virtual town hall was so well received we all agreed that we needed to do it again,” said Palmdale’s City Manager J.J.
