City of Lancaster Becomes First Municipality to Become a Third-Time Winner of LAEDC’s “Most Business-Friendly City” Award
The City of Lancaster has once again been named “Most Business-Friendly City” by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC). Lancaster is the first city in the history of the program to receive the award three times, with its initial win taking place in 2007.

“In addition to our business-friendly reputation, Lancaster is known as a city of firsts,” said Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris. “We have repeatedly made history, thanks to our dedication to innovation and our ongoing efforts to say ‘yes’ to creative ideas. While some municipalities see themselves as regulators, we view ourselves as facilitators, looking for ways to remove roadblocks and cut red tape. With this award, Lancaster is once again making history by becoming a third-time winner of the Most Business-Friendly City award.”

Lancaster was previously named “Most Business Friendly City in L.A. County” in 2007 and 2013. This year, the City of Lancaster was up against a number of well-known cities for the honor in the large city category (population 50,000 and over), including finalists Bellflower, Gardena, Norwalk, Pasadena, and Rosemead. As for the smaller city category (population under 50,000), the City of La Mirada was recognized as the most business friendly. Both cities were honored on November 7 at the LAEDC’s 24th annual Eddy Awards ceremony.
