Having a thriving business community not only means services and jobs for our residents, it also means revenue for our city which in turn can be spent on public safety, streets, parks and other quality of life amenities. 

The City Council has made economic development  a high priority and is committed to being a business-friendly community.  As a result, it is important to me personally  to reach out to businesses.  I meet with local businesses regularly to learn more about them, to see how they are doing, and to find out what the City can do to help keep them in Escondido and to help their business grow.  If you are a business owner in Escondido and would like to have me visit your business, please contact Michelle Geller, Economic Development Manager, at 760-839-4587 or mgeller@escondido.org .
