In addition to business attraction, the City of Lancaster has once again been named Most Business-Friendly City in Los Angeles County among cities with a population of 50,000 or greater by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC). Lancaster is the first city in the history of the program to receive the award twice, with a previous win in 2007.
To continue strengthening this business-friendly atmosphere, the City of Lancaster also extended the Building Incentive Stimulus Program for new commercial properties and existing home tracts. For new commercial and industrial development, development impact fees will be deferred from building permit issuance to the Certificate of Occupancy. This program will be in effect from July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014 in order to help stimulate the local job market, eliminate blight and nuisances, increase property values, and encourage developers to continue building in the City of Lancaster.

Palmdale Power Plant
• More than 800 construction jobs for 3 years
• 35 high-paying full-time jobs
• $5 million into the local economy annualy
Summit Power Group LLC, an energy project developer from Seattle, Washington, has been approved to purchase the 570 megawatt Palmdale Power Plant project. The 570 megawatt project, hailed by the EPA as a “model for power plants across the nation,” and the “cleanest power plant ever permitted,” will provide more than 800 construction jobs for up to 3 years, 35 high-paying full time jobs to operate the plant and dozens of support jobs and will infuse $5 million into the local economy annually. In August 2011, after three years of intense study and scrutiny, the California Energy Commission (CEC) approved the Palmdale Power Plant, followed by the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) review and issuance of their permit for the construction and operation of the project. “This is the most scrutinized project in the history of the Antelope Valley,” said Palmdale’s Director of Public Works Mike Mischel.
The Palmdale Power Plant will bring enormous benefits to the Antelope Valley through direct local expenditures, taxes, regional economic benefits, energy and jobs. The project will also pay for a $20 million dollar recycled water interconnect between the treatment plants in Lancaster and Palmdale.
