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Effective immediately, and until rescinded, dine–in restaurants within the City of Montclair will be allowed to temporarily create or expand al fresco (outdoor) dining areas notwithstanding any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.

Election History

Montclair was incorporated in 1956 as a General Law City and presently operates under a Council-Manager form of government. A Mayor and four Council Members are elected at-large for four-year terms. The terms of the Mayor and Council Members are staggered.

In 1992, the City of Montclair began consolidating its General Municipal Elections with the County of San Bernardino’s Statewide General Elections held in November of even-numbered years resulting in higher voter turnout and substantially lower election costs.

To qualify as a candidate for a seat on the City Council, an individual must be a registered voter and a resident of the City of Montclair.
