Glendale Creates a Regional Destination Through Business-Friendly Initiatives
This post is sponsored by the Glendale Economic Development Corporation.
Economic development is the sustained and collaborative strategy of the City of Glendale to create jobs, generate revenue, and improve the quality of life for residents, the business community, and visitors. Throughout the years, the City has encouraged economic development through proactive efforts to target and attract businesses, such as providing support to existing businesses through concierge services; creating a workforce development program operated by the Verdugo Jobs Center; promoting city-wide branding and marketing efforts; and adopting strategic planning methods including the City’s approved Economic Development Ordinance.
The City of Glendale has been named as LA County’s “#1 Safest Mid-Sized City” and has also been recognized as the “Most Business Friendly City” in the County. Glendale is committed to maintaining a high quality of life for its residents and business community. For this reason, the City created the Glendale Economic Development Corporation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation developed to promote, assist, retain and attract quality business in Glendale. Its programs assist businesses both large and small through:
- Lower Cost of Doing Business (no gross receipts tax)
- Business Concierge Services
- Streamlined Permit Service Center
- Local and Regional Collaboration
Glendale invites you to read its plan and and learn about the sustained efforts that make the City of Glendale the newest LA County boomtown for a vibrant 18-hour day lifestyle. No longer a sleepy suburban City, Glendale’s business-friendly initiatives have converged to create a bustling regional destination.
