Hosted by the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce, the 2014 State of the City Address will be held on Thursday, May 8, at Pechanga Resort & Casino, located at 45000 Pechanga Parkway. At the State of the City Address we will take a look back at the many accomplishments of 2013 and discuss the City of Temecula's high standards for 2014.
Presented by Mayor Maryann Edwards, this year’s theme is Seize the Moment.
“It is an honor and privilege to once again serve as Temecula’s Mayor – an honor made even more special in 2014… the year that marks the City’s 25th Anniversary.
Twenty-five years of careful planning, conservative fiscal management, and responsible investment in quality-of-life projects has created a solid community and strong economic foundation for residents and businesses. It was that foundation of business and community partners working together that helped us weather the worst economic storm since the Great Depression.
Now, Temecula’s economy is coming back. Sales tax revenue (business growth) is up. Tourism revenue is up $25 million to an all-time high of $625 million per year. Temecula median home prices have risen to more than $450,000, and young families are buying again. Unemployment is down to 6% and resourceful entrepreneurs are taking advantage of the opportunities at hand.
Because of sound planning, disciplined leadership, caring residents, a strong and cohesive business community, and a master plan for the future, Temecula has come roaring back. Now is the time for each one of us – business owners, visionaries, and entrepreneurs–to take advantage and Seize the Moment!.”
The event will begin at 7:30 am with a breakfast buffet and followed by the presentation at 8:00-9:30am. Cost is $40 per person or $500 for a corporate table of ten guests. All businesses and the general public are invited to attend.
