The City as a whole, and each department within it, is committed to working with businesses to align our interests and achieve common goals. 

From planning to purchasing, public works to public safety, each department is united in a common quest to bring new jobs and added opportunities to Lancaster. That’s why in 2007 and 2013, the City of Lancaster was honored with the Eddy Award for Most Business-Friendly City in L.A. County from the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC). Lancaster is the first city in the program's history to win the award twice.

Lancaster has a refreshing entrepreneurial spirit and a “can-do” approach. Through creative problem solving and innovative approaches to addressing unique business needs, our City has achieved much while others have struggled. By partnering with local enterprises, the City has found new ways to help business thrive, serve its citizens well and promote new prosperity for all who venture here. 

Together, we are making things happen. 

Whether you are a Fortune 500 company or a start-up business, we are here to assist you. Our website is designed to provide insight into what has made Lancaster the growth center of Southern California and to introduce you to the wonderful opportunities available for your business. We would love to meet with you and discuss your business plans and future needs.
