MENIFEE – The City of Menifee Economic Development Department was recently awarded two awards in the Economic Development Partnership and the Economic Development Promotions categories from the California Association for Local Economic Development. The winning entries were the “Discover Menifee” E-Newsletter and the public/private partnership of “Menifee Town Center.”
According to the association’s website, the Economic Development Partnership award “honors development projects between public and private sector that exemplify the spirit of partnership during 2016” and the Economic Development Promotions category “recognizes outstanding efforts and achievements in economic development advertising, marketing and promotion during 2016.”
The “Discover Menifee” E-Newsletter is primarily focused on Economic Development highlights, City news and Economic Development related activities. “Discover Menifee” is sent out to businesses, brokers and developers who have signed up to receive the electronic newsletter published quarterly. Menifee Town Center was recognized for the working partnership between the City’s Economic Development team and its private-sector partners to develop Menifee’s Uptown that is a landmark project aimed at meeting the needs of residents, businesses and visitors.
“We have exciting development happening here in Menifee and the best part is being able to share the developments with our readers,” said Interim Development Director Jeff Wyman. “The “Discover Menifee” E-Newsletter is a great avenue for the City to get current information out and in turn create additional opportunities for Menifee.”
