Background Music to Liven up Historic Downtown Murrieta

The city of Murrieta has programmed its newly installed speaker system on Washington Avenue to play background music daily beginning on Thanksgiving Day.

Music over the newly installed speakers on Washington Avenue in Historic Downtown Murrieta will start on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22, it was announced.

Light holiday music will play in the background, according to city of Murrieta Business Development Manager Kimberly Davidson, who promised the music will not be loud and will be commercial free.

The city has programmed the music to play daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

"After the holidays, the music will be light, easy listening background music," Davidson said. "The music will be played softly so as to not distract or annoy anyone in our Downtown."

The installation of the speakers was a long-planned project for the Historic Downtown area, and work began after capital improvement funds were designated early this year. To read that article, click here.

More than "background music", Historic Downtown Murrieta (and all of Murrieta) needs businesses that people would actually want to visit. Otherwise, the only ones that will be enjoying the music is the bunnies. If Murrieta wants to copy Temecula, maybe they can copy them by bringing businesses to the City that people will actually want to visit. Not furniture stores or never-occupied vacant business buildings.

That would mean filling O/T Murrieta with a bunch of bars and drunks like O/T Temecula. They are the only businesses thriving in Old Town Temecula. Their are some wonderful places to eat there but, the only way they can survive is with booze.

Starbucks should open on Washington Street and Kalmia. I know not every one likes Starbucks, but they do bring out a lot of people. Old Town Murrieta needs something that would bring people there.
