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.
