Cities of Lancaster and Palmdale Collaborate on New, Innovative Economic and Safety Initiatives
Palmdale and LancasterThe Cities of Palmdale and Lancaster are joining forces on two collaborative efforts targeted to boost the local economy and improve safety on local public transit.

To assist Antelope Valley businesses impacted by the COVID-19 closures that began on March 15, 2020, the cities will launch “Operation Jump Start,” an economic stimulus program where purchasers of a new vehicle at the Lancaster and Palmdale Auto Malls as well as Antelope Valley Harley Davidson will receive a $500 gift card. Purchasers of a used vehicle will receive a $250 gift card. The program is tentatively scheduled to begin May 15, subject to Los Angeles County allowing the soft opening of businesses. Cards will be eligible for use at businesses valley wide.

Additionally, Lancaster and Palmdale are moving forward in a partnership with the Antelope Valley Transit Authority to provide extra public safety staffing and protection throughout the transit system.

From the City of Lacaster Mayor's Desk COVID-19 Update

There are a total of 280 COVID-19 cases in Lancaster. As cases continue to rise, we are certain that the Lancaster community will be able to stand strong and get through this together.

Since the pandemic began, all of us have struggled with a wide range of painful emotions: anxiety, grief, fear, extreme stress, you name it. And for many of us, myself included, they’ve been harder and stronger than we expected.

What has helped me the most over the last month is remembering that we are not powerless. We just have to endure being uncomfortable, and know our families will be safe. I don't like wearing the mask as much as you do, but we know that if everyone wears a mask and follows simple rules most people will avoid this disease. I also take solace in remembering that all discomfort ends, and this too will end.

Here's Palmdale Mayor, Steve Hofbauer with today's COVID-19 Update:

If you look back in our nation’s history, people and communities come together and help each other in a time of crisis. That’s exactly what you’re seeing here in the Antelope Valley.

The Cities of Palmdale and Lancaster have been working together through this COVID 19 crisis almost since the beginning, and again we are joining forces on two collaborative efforts targeted to boost the local economy and improve safety on local public transit.

To assist Antelope Valley businesses impacted by the COVID-19 closures that began on March 15, 2020, the cities will launch an economic stimulus program where, if you buy a new car at either the Lancaster or Palmdale Auto Malls, you will receive a $500 gift card to spend here locally. If you buy a used car, you will receive a $250 gift card. We’ll be encouraging people to spend those gift cards locally, so we get a real local impact. The program is scheduled to begin May 15, and we hope it will be just one way we will see a restart for our local businesses.

Business Town Hall

Hi, this is Palmdale City Manager J.J. Murphy with your April 27th COVID-19 update.

I want everyone to know that in the midst of everything that’s going on ---and not going on ---under the Safer at Home order, your City Council and I understand that our local business community has been severely impacted by the Federal, State, and County COVID-19 shutdown….and we are doing everything possible to help get us moving towards strategically reopening our local economy. This needs to be done carefully to ensure that we do not see a sudden surge of COVID-19 cases that could overwhelm our local hospitals.

To that end, we’re inviting our local businesses to participate in a virtual town hall meeting that will be hosted via Zoom on Tuesday, April 28, from 10:30 to noon.

We want to hear first-hand the challenges you and your employees are facing and solicit your input and ideas on how we can re-open businesses in a timely but responsible manner.

COVID 19 Updates for Older Adults from CA Senator Scott Wilk
I hope this email finds you healthy. As California continues to address COVID-19, I thought you would be interested in some new developments concerning older Californians.

Governor Gavin Newsom today announced a series of initiatives to support the 1.5 million Californians over the age of 65 who live alone, and are sheltering in place.

The Restaurants Deliver: Home Meals is a first-in-the-nation program that will partner with local restaurants to prepare meals for older Californians

This first-in-the-nation program will ensure vulnerable older Californians have consistent access to nutritious meals while staying safe at home. The Restaurants Deliver: Home Meals for Seniors program will enlist community restaurants to prepare meals that will be delivered to older Californians who are isolating at home during California’s stay at home order. The program will also support local restaurant workers and owners who have lost business during the pandemic. It will be administered by local authorities and serve older Californians who are ineligible for other nutrition programs. The Administration will keep updated information on the COVID-19 website on which localities are participating.
