Economic Development


The City Council places a high priority on economic development and this web page is designed to be a one-stop resource center for retailers, entrepreneurs, professionals, and companies of all sizes interested in doing business in the city.

Known as the Jewel of the Hills for its scenic beauty, historic neighborhoods, and resident amenities, La Mesa is also a much sought after business location due to its regional centrality and superior transportation network that includes three major freeways and two trolley lines. This transportation network broadens La Mesa’s trade area and enhances attractiveness among potential employees, drawing more customers and a quality work force to your business.

We hope you will find the information useful and we look forward to welcoming you to La Mesa!
