A priority of the Escondido Creek Trail project is to revitalize the corridor and business and property owners are an integral part of that effort. We are keeping economic development top of mind during the construction process and doing everything feasible to ensure your business or property is not affected during this time. We are committed to a comprehensive and inclusive outreach process and encourage business engagement.  

Beyond the construction phase, we are looking for local businesses to help the community embrace this asset. Together, our community spirit of ingenuity and growth will transform this urban creek into a thriving space that connects us for generations to come.
