Local officials, civic groups and, most importantly, residents of the neighborhoods surrounding our properties have a critical voice in the projects we do. This entails hundreds of meetings—from intimate conversations in coffee shops and living rooms to town halls in large, open forums. Only after we have a firm grasp on what the community desires do we start to bring these properties to life.
Our involvement in the community only deepens as we shift from developing a property to operating it. That’s because we focus on being a permanent member of the neighborhood and a source of immense pride for its residents. To do this, we join local community organizations and listen to voiced wishes and concerns, continually tailoring our efforts to the wants of the community.
New Caruso developments across Southern California revive local businesses and increase property values. They also create thousands of new jobs, in both the commercial and operational categories. The enduring Caruso ecosystem means more financial opportunity for those employees, and greater tax revenue to support the surrounding communities.
To further support the economic stability of its properties’ respective communities, Caruso donates to community organizations including local police and fire departments, the chamber of commerce, churches, synagogues, hospitals and schools.
