Temecula and Murrieta, the “Twin Cities of Southern California,” has established a joint economic development marketing partnership. The Twin Cities found themselves addressing many interests that affect both communities pertaining to economic development, including attracting/expanding more businesses that offer high-paying jobs, attracting additional higher education institutions including vocational/technical schools, improving and expanding health care options and implementing new infrastructure projects.
The motivating factor for the joint marketing partnership is the recognition that job creation and retention have economic effects that spill over city boundaries. The Twin Cities of Southern California partnership sets its sights on attracting businesses, nurturing start-ups, retention and marketing the Twin Cities pro-business atmosphere, its valuable resources, highly-skilled work force and centralized transportation access. This strategic partnership allows both municipalities to come together and leverage its resources to market the area.
The Twin Cities will focus on bringing in high-technology, biotechnology, life science, medical, telecommunications, aerospace, solar and manufacturing industries. These industries were chosen as a result of research of existing clusters in the Murrieta and Temecula area, as well as the many strengths of the Twin Cities that lend to supporting these industries.
Some of the more favorable attributes of the Twin Cities area are a business friendly atmosphere, a high standard of living and high quality of life, a well educated work force, competitive housing prices, access to the major ports of Southern California, convenient freeway access, and close proximity to Los Angeles, San Diego and Orange counties.
Helping businesses in the Temecula and Murrieta communities grow and prosper is very important to the Twin Cities. We invite you to visit each of the cities’ websites at cityoftemecula.org and murrieta.org for access to additional valuable business and community information.
