Mayor Villaraigosa Pushing Hard for More Enterprise Zone Expansion


Mayor Villaraigosa stressed the need for LA to become more business friendly.  Specifically, he said he wants more expansions of LA’s Enterprise Zones.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa told members of the business community at the United Chambers of Commerce of the San Fernando Valley and Region’s honorary luncheon that he will continue pushing business-related reforms for the remainder of his term.

At the Mayor’s luncheon Sept. 22, Villaraigosa spoke of the recent steps he and his business team has taken to boost the city’s economic climate.

Those included pushing for the expansion of the city’s California Enterprise Zone in and around the San Fernando Valley, passing an ordinance that cuts taxes for local Internet businesses, passing a business tax holiday, and proposing a local preference ordinance, which would give local businesses more leverage in bids for government contracts.
