Helping our local businesses get in the Zone

Many businesses in the 13th City Council District are located within the State Enterprise Zone, making them eligible for employer tax breaks, discounts on their water and power bills, and other incentives for locating in these areas that need more economic activity. However, not every business owner is aware that his or her business may be eligible for assistance, so our office is going door-to-door to let them know. We want to encourage and retain small business owners who have chosen to locate their businesses in the areas that have the greatest need for jobs, redevelopment of blighted properties, and economic investment.

To learn more or find out if your business is in a State Enterprise Zone, please visit the City of Los Angeles's Community Development Department website.
