La Mirada Named Finalist for “Most Business- Friendly City” Award
For the sixth consecutive year, La Mirada is a finalist for the “Most Business-Friendly City” award from the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC).
La Mirada’s low cost of doing business, business recognition program, and low crime rate were among the reasons for its selection. For over 50 years the City has worked closely with businesses to meet their needs and promote economic vitality.
“Businesses are an important part of La Mirada and we work to maintain positive relationships with the business community,” says City Manager Jeff Boynton. “Being named a six-time finalist for this award reflects La Mirada’s stability as an excellent business location.”
This year, the City expanded its Business Recognition Program to highlight La Mirada business and community achievements at City Council meetings and City publications.
The LAEDC will announce its “Most Business Friendly City” award winner on November 14.
