City Manager's Message

On behalf of the Menifee City Council and City staff, I’d like to welcome you to our website.

Menifee incorporated in 2008 and is a vibrant, growing city of more than 100,000 residents situated in the heart of Southwest Riverside County. Within its nearly 50 square miles, Menifee’s business, retail, and entertainment outlets shape the community’s character, and this growing economic base is contributing favorably to the City’s strong financial position. Menifee’s growing family-oriented population values the City’s ongoing commitment to public safety, community events, and smart growth for the future. All of these elements are working together to support the City’s strategic vision to make Menifee a safe, thriving, and premier place to be.

As a quickly growing city, it is essential that we retain our community-orientated feel. In Menifee, we are proud to provide services and resources that enhance the quality of life for our families and businesses.

It is my belief that the city’s greatest attribute is its capacity for growth. While we are currently home to 100,000 residents, Menifee has more than 2,000 acres of land ready for retail and commercial development and have committed to investing nearly $500 million in infrastructure and traffic improvement projects over the next five years. While praised for its business-friendly nature, Menifee is also known for attracting young families clamoring for shopping, dining, and entertainment amenities within their city. Our thriving community, dedicated businesses, and vibrant parks and recreation system are all examples of what make Menifee such a desirable place to be. To help strengthen disclosure, reporting, and transparency of City operations, the City Manager’s Annual Performance Report for 2022 is now available for public review.

As City Manager, I encourage you to explore the many great features Menifee has to offer and if you have questions or concerns while doing so, please reach out. I am here to serve, and I am here for you.
