A Message from the City Manager

Greetings –


As we head into summer, I wanted to give advanced notice of a great opportunity to spend a summer morning at the State of the City! Mark your calendars for the 2023 Temecula State of the City presented by Temecula Mayor Zak Schwank, hosted by the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce, and held at Pechanga Resort Casino.

This year's event will include an early morning opportunity to network with the local business community, visit booths at a nonprofit expo, and enjoy a buffet breakfast as you watch an exciting presentation filled with Temecula news by Mayor Schwank who will share the City’s recent accomplishments, current projects, and vision for the future. This event is open to the public (advanced registration and ticket required), and will provide insight on Temecula's strong economy, public infrastructure projects, new businesses, and planned development.

We hope to see you there.

The Santa Margarita Ecological Reserve (SMER) Solar Generation Project

This project is complete and connected to the grid!


The City of Temecula will benefit greatly from the electricity generated by this project which places 10,000 solar modules on 16 acres of land. The property initially contained eucalyptus groves which hindered biodiversity and posed a fire hazard, therefore the solar project was utilized as a mechanism to fund habitat restoration and ecological research. This facility will generate 75% of the power that is being used by City of Temecula facilities, saving the City $10+ MILLION over the next 30 years.

Carbon reduction? This project will reduce over 4.5 metric tons of CO2 equivalent per year. This is comparable to taking approximately 1,000 cars off road annually. The City of Lake Elsinore partnered with the City of Temecula on this project, and will also benefit.
