Hesperia Launches into Enterprise Zone Program

Monday, April 5th, 2010 | Featured Zone

April 1st may be April Fool’s day, however the city of Hesperia was celebrating since it marked the beginning of the region’s enterprise zone benefits. Starting April 1st, Hesperia local businesses were able to start taking advantage of the EZ tax credits, including: hiring credits, sales and use tax credits as well as business expense deductions.

“It’ll hopefully not only bring in new jobs, but also help people expand existing businesses,” City Manager Mike Podegracz said Friday.

This is very exciting for a city like Hesperia, since it will now be able to compete directly with larger cities in attracting new businesses to move to the area. This should also mean good things for the job rate in Hesperia, since local businesses will be able to apply for a number of different hiring credits.

Hesperia Revels in New Enterprise Zone Designation

Friday, August 21st, 2009 | Uncategorized

The Hesperia Daily Press proudly proclaims the success Hesperia had in managing to outbid many other cities to obtain Enterprise Zone designation.  Below is the article:

HESPERIA • The state has named Hesperia as one of five new enterprise zones that will allow businesses to generate millions of dollars in tax credits.
Hesperia, along with  along with Sacramento, Taft, Pittsburg and Tulare have been only conditionally designated at the moment, according to Steve Lantsberger, Hesperia’s head of economic development. But it’s essentially just a matter of some signing agreements between the California Department of Housing and Community Development and the city before it’s official.
“We spent a lot of time going through all of the requirements so that, if we were successful, there’d be very few things we’d have to do if we were conditionally designated,” he said Thursday. His office began working on the application 18 months ago, and the city will be an enterprise zone until 2024.
The enterprise zone covers most of the city, outside of residential areas. Businesses already operating in the zone as of Aug. 19 are eligible, as are new businesses.
