Attention Montclair Community

Effective immediately, and until rescinded, dine–in restaurants within the City of Montclair will be allowed to temporarily create or expand al fresco (outdoor) dining areas notwithstanding any preexisting limitations imposed under the Montclair Municipal Code. This City of Montclair Community Guidance is based on provisions of Dine–In Restaurants Guidance issued by the California Department of Public Health updated on Thursday, July 2, 2020 and Guidance on Closures of Sectors in Response to Covid–19 by Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health published on July 1, 2020.


In efforts to provide more testing opportunities for San Bernardino County residents, community testing events are being held throughout the county. At these testing events, samples are collected by inserting a swab up the nostril or into the mouth to the throat. These samples are then sent to a laboratory for COVID-19 testing. Events are free of charge and do not require health insurance.


On May 14, 2020, the County of San Bernardino launched the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program to support local small businesses and help ensure ongoing compliance with State and County health orders and direction.

Montclair is a wonderful place to live, work, and do business. Originally named Monte Vista, the town was certified as a general law city on April 25, 1956. The opening of the Montclair Plaza mall (now called Montclair Place) in 1968 solidified the City's position as a leader in retail trade and opened a new era of growth for the entire area.


The vibrant City of Montclair is built on a bedrock of the basics—a premier location; a strong, stable community; and a prosperous, enterprising citizenry. Montclair occupies a power position poised between Los Angeles County and the thriving Inland Empire. Set squarely between the two on the I-10 travel corridor, Montclair benefits from both the dynamic business environment of Los Angeles and the fast-growing markets of the Inland Empire. This premier location is the foundation for Montclair's established position as a retail and business powerhouse and regional community leader.

In the City of Montclair, people are our most important resource, hence our motto, "The People Are the City." We welcome the involvement and commitment that produces a greater quality of life with citizens and city government working in partnership.
