The City of Santa Clarita is again a finalist for the “Most Business-Friendly City” award by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC).

Santa Clarita is one of 10 cities selected throughout Los Angeles County as a finalist for the 2021 award. This year’s award finalists are being recognized for prioritizing and supporting business recovery, reinvention, growth and hiring throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Santa Clarita was selected due to the innovative programs offered throughout the pandemic to support businesses.

“This is a testament of the continuous hard work from the City and our partners, including the SCVEDC, Chamber of Commerce and VIA in supporting the businesses that add to the quality of life in Santa Clarita,” said Santa Clarita Mayor Bill Miranda. “I am grateful to the LAEDC for recognizing the resilience of the businesses, employees and residents in our community with this selection.”

“Congratulations to the City of Santa Clarita for again being nominated as the most business-friendly city in LA County. Your partnership with SCVEDC is critical to attracting new businesses to the region and ensuring a strong, diverse economy for our future,” added Holly Schroeder, President and CEO of the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation.
