Colton sees itself as ripe for residential and business opportunities. City and county government agencies are partnering with local commercial and industrial companies to enhance the existing commerce with a new vibrant energy that will benefit the residents and the surrounding communities as well. With its large Arrowhead Regional Medical Center and other major industries attracting a diverse and active population, Colton is ready to establish itself as a successful business hub. The citizens here are not only envisioning a high quality of life, but they are taking large strides to get there. The economic, social and environmental health of the area is paramount in the minds of job creators, educators, and community developers. This is an engaged community with plans to build on its railroading heritage and become, itself, a commercial and entertainment destination for San Bernardino County.
