Lancaster Recognized as ‘Most Business Friendly City’

According to The Antelope Valley Times, November 15, 2013, the City of Lancaster was named “Most Business-Friendly City” at the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation’s 18th annual Eddy Awards. Lancaster is the first city in the history of the program to have won the award twice, with its first win in 2007, city officials announced in a news release. “We are deeply honored that an organization of this caliber has once again recognized Lancaster with this very prestigious award,” said Mayor R. Rex Parris. “Since 1996, LAEDC and its president, Bill Allen, have played a key role in many of Lancaster’s recent successes, including the attraction of BYD’s e-bus and battery manufacturing facilities.” The LAEDC is the premier economic development organization in Los Angeles County, since 1996 having helped retain or attract more than 190,000 annual jobs in the County with an estimated labor income of $11.8 billion.
