“Yeah,” enthused Mayor Jonathan Ingram following the unanimous vote. “Let’s get Costco.”
The proposed shopping center is currently planned for land at the northeast corner of the I-215, Clinton Keith Road interchange, right across the street from Bronco Stadium also known as Vista Murrieta High School.
The next meeting is on Feb. 20. The council may take up a second infrastructure deal related to the project, which the city is pursuing due to the amount of sales tax revenue a Costco warehouse generates.
Costco would not respond to any additional information, however advised that it doesn’t comment on future warehouses until it updates its website with news of a pending opening.
This is good news for Murrieta, the tax revenue for the city would be advantageous in many ways.
