The City of Bellflower has been named a Finalist for the 2014 Most Business-Friendly City Award by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC). The LAEDC recently named its finalists for the prestigious “Eddy Awards,”® and has recognized The City of Bellflower’s commitment to its business community. “With a newly-established Economic Development Department, Bellflower has created incentive-based zoning and streamlined the entitlement process,” said Councilman Ray Dunton, a former mayor. “Bellflower has low business, utility, and property taxes, and numerous incentives programs, including forgivable sales tax loans, marketing and promotional agreements, and a restaurant expansion program.” Dunton, owner of Ray-A-Motive, said he’s excited that Bellflower may win the top award, to be announced in November. Also in the running are Lakewood and Santa Clarita.
