On Wednesday, Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa held an event to celebrate the recent designation of the new Harbor Gateway Communities State Enterprise Zone (HGCSEZ). The following is from the Mayor’s press release:
Mayor Villaraigosa today joined Congresswoman Janice Hahn, Councilmember Joe Buscaino, and local business owners to celebrate the designation of the Harbor Gateway as a State Enterprise Zone (SEZ) and the opening of the Harbor BusinessSource Center, two important tools for creating jobs in Los Angeles.
“Small businesses are the backbone of our local economy,” said Mayor Villaraigosa at the Harbor BusinessSource Center. “We are reopening the BusinessSource Centers to give entrepreneurs the tools they need to create jobs and grow their businesses. The redesignation of the Harbor as an SEZ will give business owners even more incentive to create jobs in the Harbor area.”
CAEZ also issued a press release about the event which can be found here.
