La Mesa: The Jewel of the Hills
La Mesa is known as the Jewel of the Hills with its tree-lined neighborhoods, its downtown village, and its very walkable streets set in the rolling hills of southwestern San Diego. La Mesa is the gateway to East County with access to all areas of San Diego through three major freeways, two trolley lines, and five trolley stations. La Mesa’s near perfect climate, its 14 public parks, a variety of housing, and multiple commercial and retail areas, make it a highly desirable community in which to live, work, and conduct business.

One of the priorities for the La Mesa City Council is to focus on economic development to help spur activity that will positively impact the city’s finances and, thus, our ability to provide services.
