The City of Temecula announces a new exhibit entitled City Founders: The Path to Incorporation, now available for viewing online at TemeculaCA.gov/CityFounders.
Temecula proudly shares this digital exhibit containing primary documents, biographies, videos, and historical accounts of the road to Cityhood founded on DEC 1, 1989. Learn about Temecula’s first City Council Members, the City Committee, the Naming Process, Elections, City Logo/Seal Creation, and much more.
Current Temecula Mayor Maryann Edwards states, “It has been thirty-two years since the City of Temecula was incorporated and we owe a debt of gratitude to the courageous and dedicated group of leaders who had the vision and passion to create this unique City that we are fortunate to call home. The City of Temecula is proud to honor our City Founders as they share their first-hand, factual, sometimes frustrating, and often funny stories about Temecula’s birth and formative years from 1989 through today with visions for tomorrow."
Temecula’s Mayor also debuted the new Temecula Alumni Video Series at the TUE, NOV 23, 2021 City Council Meeting. Temecula’s Council Members will check in on former City Officials and retired staff revealing life after serving Temecula. By asking just a few simple questions, we will be sharing brief updates publicly from our emeritus City Family. These historical digital communications are another way we are highlighting Mayor Edwards’ Temecula Cares theme for 2021 by celebrating Temecula’s Old Traditions & New Opportunities. Temecula Alumni videos will also be available on the City Founders Digital Exhibit at TemeculaCA.gov/TemeculaAlumni.
The City Founders Digital Exhibit and Temecula Alumni Video Series serve as important historical accounts for future Temecula residents, fulfilling the City’s commitment of honoring and celebrating its history as stated in the City of Temecula’s Quality of Life Master Plan.
