CSUSB professor and former SB councilman reflects on the end of Carousel Mall
IE Business Daily
May 1, 2023

Jim Mulvihill, Cal State San Bernardino geography and environmental studies professor emeritus who represented San Bernardino’s seventh ward from 2013 to 2020, attended the mall’s demolition ceremony on April 24 and said afterward that he approved of what he saw, and what the city wants to do with the 43-acre downtown site.

Mulvihill, and now a part-time instructor of urban planning at CSUSB, advocated leveling the mall while he was on the council. He spoke with IE Business Daily about why the mall failed and why it was so difficult for the city to agree to demolish the mall and start from scratch.

“Ten years from now, I think you’ll see a nice mixed-use project on that site: a commercial, residential, and office development that is the hub of a vibrant, revenue-generating downtown. “I’m very optimistic.”
