City of Menifee

The City of Menifee, like its neighboring city of Wildomar, is the next hot spot for new residential development in Southwest Riverside County. Both cities are located directly in the path of growth stemming from the near-build out conditions in the cities of Temecula and Murrieta.

Located just north of Murrieta in a booming area of Riverside County, Menifee is bustling with activity in both the public and private sectors. Interstate-215, now under major expansion, provides excellent north-south access and a new “ultimate build” freeway overpass at Newport Road will provide much improved access to our Menifee and Winchester Valley properties.

The City of Menifee incorporated in October of 2008. It encompasses approximately 50 square miles and is bordered by the City of Perris to the north, Winchester Valley to the east, the City of Murrieta to the south and the City of Canyon Lake to the west.

The community of Menifee dates back to the 1880s and was an area consigned to dry farming. Del Webb built a world famous senior citizens’ community known as Sun City, which is now a part of the City of Menifee. With a land area of 50 square miles, Menifee is projected to be one of the largest cities in both population and size in Riverside County.

The city is served by the Menifee Valley Medical Center and nearby Loma Linda University Medical Center in Murrieta. Menifee is also home to the expanding San Jacinto College Menifee Campus. The city has a growing commercial sector anchored by the Menifee Countryside Marketplace power center along the I-215 freeway.

•  Incorporated in October of 2008
•  50 square miles
•  Population of approximately 83,000 [1]
•  Estimated Population of 93,157 by 2020 [2]
•  Approximately 31,518 housing units in 2013 [3]
•  Estimated 36,292 housing units in 2020 [2]

Located along the I-215 Corridor, the City of Menifee is in a prime area for growth coming from the built out cities of Temecula and Murrieta. In 2012, and the beginning of 2013, more single family homes were sold in Menifee than in Temecula and Murrieta combined (according to the SWC Association of Realtors) and that trend is expected to continue through the next decade.
