For the third year in a row, the city of Santa Clarita was named the Best Economic Development Program in the State of California from the California Association for Local Economic Development (CALED).

The award recognizes outstanding and innovative programs which have made a significant contribution to the field of economic development. The City of Santa Clarita was presented with the award at CALED's Annual Training Conference, held last week in Monterey.

Santa Clarita also took home the Grand Prize for its Support for Small Business Program for the category of Economic Development Programs, which recognizes outstanding and innovative programs which made a significant contribution to the field of economic development during 2008.

A third Grand Prize was awarded to Santa Clarita for its Enterprise Zone Marketing Campaign for the category of Economic Development Promotions, which recognizes outstanding efforts and achievements in economic development advertising, marketing and promotion.

"The city of Santa Clarita consistently strives to implement and execute programs that assist businesses to thrive in Santa Clarita," Santa Clarita Mayor Frank Ferry said. "These CALED awards are a huge honor, as well as testament to our hard work and dedication to Santa Clarita businesses and its workforce."

Most recently, the Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation named the city of Santa Clarita the "Most Business Friendly City in Los Angeles County" (2008).

Santa Clarita's Economic Development Division focuses on attracting and retaining targeted industries and businesses to sustain the City's dynamic business environment and thriving job market.

Santa Clarita employs an aggressive marketing strategy that focuses on the top four identified business clusters, including aerospace, biomedical, technology and entertainment.
