Hot News for the End of Summer
Each season brings something new and exciting in the world of economic development for the Santa Clarita Valley (SCV). Our local economy is strong with nearly full employment and sustained job growth in high-wage sectors. To date, we’ve celebrated several groundbreakings for new headquarters and industrial developments, SCVEDC launched an internship website to link local employers to qualified students (scvinternships.com), College of the Canyons announced new apprenticeship programs, and many local companies received assistance with tax credits and other incentives saving them tens of thousands of dollars!
The SCVEDC continues our work with business attraction and business assistance to help maintain Santa Clarita’s status as Los Angeles County’s most business-friendly city. As I reflect on all that has happened already this year, the future looks bright!
