To preserve and enhance the open space atmosphere and quality of life in Calimesa.


The City of Calimesa is dedicated to remaining a community that honors its beautiful natural setting through open space preservation, wildlife corridors, and extensive trail systems, as well as enriching the quality of life for Calimesa through sensitive planning that creates increased business activity, local jobs, new parks, and schools.



The City of Calimesa has a Wildlife Corridor in conjunction with the Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan from the WR-RCA:

The City of Calimesa incorporated December of 1990. It has developed its own unique zoning codes and standards, and sought to retain its open space characteristics. The City’s General Plan provides for neighborhoods and businesses that reflect that concept. The City is governed by a five-member City Council and a form of government small enough to respond to citizen concerns yet experienced enough to maintain the unique Calimesa lifestyle.
