La Mirada Named County’s Most Business-Friendly Cities

By Brian Hews

La Mirada were named the most business-friendly cities in Los Angeles County by the county’s economic development organization.

At its annual awards gala on Thursday, the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. named La Mirada as the most business-friendly among cities with fewer than 50,000 people.

The LAEDC began the most business-friendly cities contest seven years ago as a way to boost competition among the county’s 88 cities to stimulate economic development and job creation. Winners must demonstrate a commitment to economic development, show they keep business costs low and retain companies.

“La Mirada understands that domestic and global competition for jobs, businesses and entire industries has never been fiercer,” said Bill Allen, LAEDC chief executive.
