Business-Friendly Environment and Cooperative City Government

The City of Perris is pro-business! Our Economic Development Department is proactive and supportive, and can assist businesses and developers through the  entitlement and permitting processes, site selection, and any other individual needs that may arise.

We are committed to reducing the red tape and expediting the approval processes!

Residential Development

With 8,396 units of approved residential development, population growth is projected to exceed 33,500 (based on an average 4-person household).

High Volume Job Market

In addition to the booming residential development, the City of Perris also benefits from the additional traffic brought in by our high volume job market, which contains over 25,000 employees. Further, our local school districts add an additional component to daily foot traffic, with 3 districts and 22 schools carrying over 1,500 staff and faculty members, and nearly 19,000 students.

Traffic Counts at Major Intersections

These various components adding to the activity in the City of Perris leads to traffic counts exceeding 100,000 vehicles daily at the higher volume  intersections.
