Doing Business in Awesometown

We love that Valencia has been a thriving business hub for years! Our community is home to more than 6,000 businesses, with 1,500 companies located in the Valencia Gateway. Encompassing more than 4,700 acres, 22.5 million-square-feet of buildings and more than 41,500 employees onsite, Valencia Gateway is the largest and fastest growing master-planned center for business, technology and industry in Los Angeles County.

In 2013, employment in Santa Clarita Valley increased by 2.8 percent, thanks in part to the pro-business local government, creating incentives to help businesses relocate to the area and create jobs.

The diverse mix of industries and major employers that call Valencia home, like College of the Canyons, William S. Hart Union School District, Princess Cruises, the U.S. Postal Service and Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital have greatly contributed to the steady growth of both local business and homeownership.

Our awesome community is exceptionally family-oriented, and that’s why people decide to live where they work. Santa Clarita has been named one of the “Best Places to Live in California” by CNN Money Magazine and has been rated among the nation’s safest communities – it’s no wonder this is a great place to work and raise a family.

Plus, individuals employed in certain local workforce groups can qualify for the WorkForce Housing Program – a program that allots a certain dollar amount towards available options and upgrades in the home, closing costs and rate locks.

Do you work or have a business in our flourishing economic hub?
