Retailers, hospitality see growth in Murrieta

Optimism about future growth has all but vanished from many communities during the current economic downturn, but not in Murrieta. A rare combination of public and private efforts has made optimism a common thread between the city, retail developers and the hospitality industry. As a result, Murrieta continues to attract national and regional businesses despite current economic conditions.

Retail demographics study shows Murrieta as high income community

The city of Murrieta retained Speer Consulting of Coronado in April 2009 to conduct a retail study to compare Murrieta’s demographics with communities in San Diego, Orange and Inland Southern California counties in preparation for the International Council of Shopping Centers convention in Las Vegas. Some of the key findings of the report were as follows:

Is high speed rail in Murrieta’s future?

Like many “frontier” communities, Murrieta’s foundation was set when the California Southern Railway came to town in 1882. When the railroad gave way in 1935 to more efficient means of transportation, only the places with a solid community foundation like Murrieta were able to survive.

Murrieta -- a great place to grow and play

A community, as a whole, benefits from recreation programs and aesthetically pleasing parks in a variety of ways: people learn, exercise and compete and challenge one another; they relax with a change of pace or scenery; they enjoy the beauty, peace and solitude of nature; and they visit with family, friends and neighbors. The city of Murrieta’s leisure facilities, parks, open spaces, trails, activities and events do more than provide recreational opportunities and outdoor enjoyment for its residents; they epitomize what is unique about Murrieta. In the case of its parks, they offer a distinctive heritage to hand down to future generations.

Murrieta schools offer more than just traditional education

Murrieta Valley Unified School District offers diverse students from kindergarten through high school with an excellent, comprehensive academic program with award-winning student activities, highly acclaimed visual and performing arts and outstanding interscholastic athletics.

Murrieta Learning Center opens new Student Resource Center

University of Phoenix Southern California Campus’ Murrieta Learning Center is pleased to present students with a new and improved Student Resource Center (SRC) where they can complete assignments, log in to online classes, meet with their peers in the designated “student collaboration rooms,” receive one-on-one tutoring, relax at the coffee bar or even watch their favorite television show on the mounted flat screen TVs. In addition, students are given the options of both Mac and IBM computers so they can work on whichever operating system they prefer.

Murrieta promotes international investment, trade

With the financial and banking downturn affecting the ability of developers to locate traditional sources of financing for new development projects, the city of Murrieta has initiated the process of encouraging international investors to consider opportunities for attracting overseas investments to the community.
