Chamber Benefits
Rorie Johnston

It's that time of year again! We are gearing up for the 4th Annual Business Walk. The Board of Directors and Ambassadors pair up with City staff to visit 60+ businesses in one day.

The goal? To find out more about you!

Each pair of volunteers will conduct a short business retention survey. We want to know what your business future entails. Is growth planned? Are you looking for a new space? Need to hire more employees? Is there something the city can do to "Get to Yes" for your business development?

We have a targeted list of businesses to visit next Wednesday, September 27th. If you are on the list, we look forward to meeting with. If you would like for one of our teams to visit you next week, just let me know! 

After all the information is aggregated, the city council receives a comprehensive report. This helps in the planning and economic development processes for Escondido.

Your time with us will go a long way in improving our city. We look forward to meeting with you.

Developments on South Centre City
City of Escondido 
Mike Strong


The overall effort to create a South Centre Center Area Plan, called Envision South Centre City, will culminate into something that is called a "specific plan."  A specific plan is a planning document that consists of new zoning standards and design guidelines for a specific area of the city.  Zoning standards define the allowable uses and bulk or scale of development, while design guidelines address the appearance and quality of development. 

The South Quince Street Target Area, South Escondido Boulevard Target Area, and the Centre City Parkway Target Area are identified in the City's General Plan (Target Areas C, D, E, and F).  These interconnected Target Areas comprise approximately 420 acres of Escondido's more established and older sectors of the city and extends 2.25 miles along Centre City Parkway and Escondido Boulevard. The General Plan has identified this area for future growth.
