MENIFEE MATTERS - WINTER 2014
Menifee Matters - Winter 2014
The Menifee Oak Tree, pictured on the front cover, was planted this past December in the Menifee Town Center (currently under construction).
As community leaders looked on, the 80-year-old California Live Oak was hoisted
by crane into its new home and its place in Menifee history. This majestic Menifee
Oak Tree acknowledges the city’s agricultural heritage while standing as a symbol
of this new city’s strength and growth.
The tree’s highly visible location in the middle of what will be Town Center Drive
designates a future gathering place for the Menifee community.
With our roots planted, literally and figuratively, 2014 is shaping up to be a year of
community building. We’re welcoming new restaurants and retail businesses,
evaluating multiple proposals to bring developments and amenities to our city,
and starting and finishing major “Menifee Moving” road infrastructure projects.
The City Council recently passed the General Plan and implementation is underway,
providing structure with guidelines and ordinances to carry out the vision that
Menifee’s community leaders have created.
New parks will open in 2014 under the leadership of the new Community Services
Director, who will join the city’s team later this spring. Menifee’s new and existing
parks are community gathering places for events, classes and family fun. Check out pages 10-11 to get involved.
Planting the Menifee Oak Tree is just the beginning. There’s a buzz in the air and as you look around town, we’re certain you’ll feel it.
