Economic Development Committee

The Chamber’s Economic Development Committee works to assist, retain and grow existing businesses in Escondido while striving to attract new businesses and ventures with the focus on positive economic impacts and job creation for our citizens. Also focuses on the local and regional economy including projects and policies that impact the city’s ability to thrive, grow and prosper.

EDC monthly meetings are held the second Thursday at noon where we bring the most crucial topics impacting Escondido businesses to light. Direct access to city officials is key as we partner to enhance the business experience in Escondido, from start up to expansion.
