Welcome to Yucca Valley and our Website!
As the Mayor of the Town of Yucca Valley and a resident since 1976 when I was 15 years old. I am so pleased you are here to visit our website and hopefully visit our Town. We are a hidden gem in the Mojave Desert but it has now been discovered by many.
It is the Town Council and Planning Commission of Yucca Valley’s responsibility to assure as we grow we maintain our small Town atmosphere yet have opportunities for people to visit, work or move here.
Whether you live here or visit please be a part of all we have to offer. We are a gateway to the low desert to the south and the mountains to the north, a perfect place in the middle of both ecosystems at an average of 3300 feet in downtown Yucca Valley.
When it comes to recreation, we offer something for everyone! Yucca Valley is located minutes away from the Johnson Valley’s world-famous off-road vehicle area, as well as all the hiking and equestrian trails in and around Joshua Tree National Park--not to mention fantastic rock climbing. Naturalists will enjoy bird watching, wild flowers and wildlife from desert and mountain environments like no other in Southern California. Snow sports in Big Bear and water sports at the Colorado River are only a short drive away from our Hi-Desert community.
On behalf of our wonderful community who call Yucca Valley home, I want to invite you to come and discover Yucca Valley. Whether you come for a day or stay for a lifetime.
As our previous Mayor Lombardo has said., “Yucca Valley Truly is Our Town and Our Home”
