Lighting of the iconic M on Box Springs Mountain enhances local events, recognizes state and federal holidays and is a source of civic unity and pride.
Request Special Color Lighting for the M
The default color is white, but the City often accepts community requests for color lighting for one night to recognize a specific cause or holiday or promote a local event.
The City reserves the right to deny or modify requests.
- Promotion of a product or service;
- Personal recognitions (i.e., birthday, wedding, anniversary, etc.);
- Recurring requests and requests for lighting more than one year in advance; or
- Political or controversial requests.
Approved color lightings (including those in recognition of multi-day events) are for one night only, from dusk to midnight.
If multiple requests are made for different colors on the same date, preference will be given to requests with local significance or that have significance to the greatest number of residents.
Anniversaries of public events of Moreno Valley significance may be considered, but may be limited to milestone commemorations, such as 1st, 10th, 25th, 50th or 100th anniversaries.
