Santa Clarita Valley – closer than you think!

Los Angeles is a huge metropolis that sprawls across Southern California, and it often seems that everything is so far away. When it comes to the Santa Clarita Valley (SCV), the perception is that it takes longer to get here than other places in LA. It’s a myth we work hard to dispel—did you know that it takes SCV residents less time to get to the Hollywood Bowl than folks who live on the Westside?

Santa Clarita Valley delivers access to the top

As kids head back to school, it’s important to keep in mind the graduates of more advanced schooling, whether it’s technical or vocational training, or a two or four-year college program. With today’s hottest industries requiring a trained and educated workforce, the Santa Clarita Valley delivers on so many fronts. There are over 50 two and four year schools, both private and public, located within 30 miles of Santa Clarita, and if you’re willing to expand your search to 50 miles, that number jumps to 97! And those schools include some of the nation’s top talent-building schools.

The City of Santa Clarita and its partners work hard to make sure that doing business here is a profitable experience for businesses. Through the SCVEDC and other business groups, we have been very successful in attracting new businesses and creating a healthy climate for business expansion.

SCVEDC provided critical information our executive team needed to evaluate the various locations we were considering. Without SCVEDC, I believe Logix would have selected a different location for its HQ.
