Murrieta is in the path of growth for these counties and affords business the opportunity to take charge of the future, today. With a population of just over 106,000 and continually recognized as one of the safest cities in the nation, it is easy to see why Murrieta is the 'Future of Southern California!'

Incorporated in 1991, Murrieta has experienced a 400% increase in population in just 18 years and boasts an educated, high-income population comparable to communities in San Diego and Orange Counties.


Murrieta's top-notch school district is rated in the top 10% of the nation and reports a 94.5% graduation rate. The three high schools are rich with robotics clubs, entrepreneurial classes and even offer Mandarin as a foreign language study.


New retail centers, industrial buildings and Class A offices have been completed with more in the planning process. With over 2,000 acres of additional available land, Murrieta is attracting upscale retail centers and quality hotels, as well as research and development/medical technology firms and first-rate healthcare facilities. Both Kaiser Permanente and Rady Children’s Hospital are in the process of opening new medical facilities in Murrieta; happily joining the growing healthcare cluster that already includes Loma Linda Medical Center and Rancho Springs Medical Center. Marriott is in the process of building two quality hotels in Murrieta and Hampton Inn will start construction soon as well.


The City is encouraging business growth and job creation in the area immediately surrounding Loma Linda Medical Center. To help facilitate, the City has conducted environmental studies in that area to help make the ground "shovel-ready" for the development of Office and Research Parks.


Along with efforts to attract jobs to Murrieta, the City also believes there is an opportunity to "grow" jobs in their business incubator. The Murrieta Innovation Center, which is the City’s former City Hall, is home to five start-up technology companies. Murrieta is working with organizations such as SCORE, SBDC and InSoCal CONNECT to attract and grow more technology companies for the region.
