The City of Temecula is updating its 2030 Quality of Life Master Plan. Soon, citizens will be presented with several opportunities to participate and share valuable feedback on shaping the future of their City. Temecula’s Quality of Life Masterplan (QLMP) was originally developed to be a 20-year roadmap to drive the City by identifying core values, goals, and priorities for Temecula in order to maintain a high quality of life. QLMP progress is periodically evaluated to make certain that the City of Temecula remains on track for actualizing and sustaining the goals that Temecula residents desire. Temecula Mayor Maryann Edwards commented, “Given the substantial progress on the current QLMP during the past several years, it was determined that an update was needed ahead of schedule. The City of Temecula is advancing toward meeting our goals faster than anticipated, and that’s a great problem to have!”
The City of Temecula uses the QLMP to formulate and budget many Citywide projects. In addition, the QLMP is a long-term visionary guide for continuous process improvements in partnership with Temecula’s residents. Also referred to as “Core Values,” the QLMP currently encompasses the following six overarching goals:
A Blue Ribbon Committee comprised of community members and businesses will review data and indicators, evaluate progress, and make recommendations to the City Council in 2022. In addition, the City of Temecula will engage the public at large in an inclusive process of updating the QLMP to be used as the new roadmap through the year 2040. This will include virtual workshops, an online questionnaire, pop-up booths at the Old Town Farmer’s Market and other events, integrating TVUSD high school students, and a website with more participation options. Temecula Mayor Pro Tem Matt Rahn remarked, “These opportunities will be designed to provide the City Government with a reliable understanding of its residents’ opinions, level of satisfaction and priorities as they relate to City services, facilities, and policies. This understanding will then equip the City with critical information needed to make sound, strategic decisions in a variety of areas including project planning, performance management, establishing budget priorities, accountability and responsiveness.”
Updates to Temecula’s Quality of Life Master Plan assists the City in its overall goal to maintain a high-quality lifestyle for its residents and businesses. One of the most important keys to success is participation and feedback from the community.
