Incorporated just three decades ago (1981) Cathedral City offers residents and visitors alike a sense of community and quality of life unparalleled in the Coachella Valley. Named one of the “top ten best bargain retirement spots” by US News and World Reorts, Cathedral City retains a strong service orientation with its police, fire and schools consistently ranked among the best in the region. Its neighborhoods, some established long before the City’s incorporation, retain a strong sense of character and identity.
Strategically located, with borders on both side of Interstate 10, Cathedral City is a haven for expanding and relocating businesses. Cathedral City ranks in the top three cities in the Coachella Valley in population, retail sales and total taxable sales.
Business view the region as a triangle of opportunity between Los Angeles and San Diego with Coachella Valley inland equidistant from each. This triangle of commercial businesses, light industry, and professional services is expanding and becoming one metropolis of continued growth.
