La Mirada Named "Most Business-Friendly City"
The Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) named the City of La Mirada as ‘Most Business-Friendly City,’ during the 24th annual Eddy Awards ceremony on November 7. The LAEDC recognizes cities that create opportunities for businesses to prosper and help spur economic development in their communities.
The City of La Mirada was a finalist among four cities with a population less than 50,000. La Mirada’s business-friendly climate, business-friendly processes, and “dedicated to service” philosophy earned the City this prestigious recognition. La Mirada’s commitment to economic development is reflected through programs and services that facilitate business expansion and growth. The City keeps fees and taxes low and has never levied a municipal property tax or utility user tax (UUT). For over 50 years, the City has remained a supportive partner to the business community and worked collaboratively with businesses to ensure La Mirada remains economically vibrant.
“We are honored to receive the ‘Most Business-Friendly City’ Award among so many deserving cities,” says City Manager Jeff Boynton. “The success of La Mirada businesses supports a strong local economy and ensures La Mirada remains a desirable community in which to work and live.”
La Mirada’s strong economic base provides jobs in a variety of key industries. The City’s low crime rate, low development costs, and the community’s high quality of life, continue to make La Mirada an ideal place for new businesses. La Mirada is home to over 1,000 businesses and several new establishments have chosen to invest in the city recently.
This is La Mirada’s second time receiving the ‘Most Business-Friendly City’ honor. It previously won in 2013. For questions or interest in economic development opportunities in La Mirada, call (562) 943-0131.
