MVR Consulting Projects

Cove Infrastructure Project

City of Cathedral City

MVR provided full project management services for the Cathedral City Cove Infrastructure Project, including design and engineering oversight, construction support, public outreach, interagency coordination, assessment district formation, and grant administration.

MVR was responsible for writing and managing over $9M in State and Federal grants for the $64M Cove project. Funding also included a $31M property tax assessment district.

The project included street, sewer, water line and storm drain improvements for the 1,500 household Cove neighborhood. The project was complete in 2011.

Cathedral City won a Grand Prize for this project in the Public Works, Infrastructure and Transportation category of the 2007 Helen Putnam Award for Excellence program.
