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 cited as 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 designee Jeff Boynton. “Being named a six-time finalist for this award reflects La Mirada’s stability as an excellent business location.”
The City maintains positive communication with the business community by reaching out to business to discuss issues, resolve barriers to growth, identify expansion opportunities and recognize accomplishments.
This year, the City expanded its Business Recognition Program to highlight La Mirada business and community achievements at City Council meetings and City publications.
Several new businesses have chosen to open in La Mirada recently, including Walgreens Pharmacy at the renovated Crossroads Shopping Center on the corner of Imperial Highway and La Mirada Boulevard. A new 35,000 square foot Walmart

Neighborhood Market is set to open at the shopping center this fall along with other improvements.
The LAEDC will announce its “Most Business Friendly City” award winner on November 14.
