Turning Red Tape Into Red Carpet

Call for 2015 Nominations! 

Orange County Business Council is pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the fifth annual Turning Red Tape Into Red Carpet Awards, sponsored by Chase. Acknowledging the good work local government can do in tough times, the awards program honors Orange County’s local governments that have implemented innovative policies and programs that cut through red tape, eliminate barriers to economic growth and open the door to private sector jobs creation.

Since its inception the program has expanded to include over 40 nominees each year, showcasing the county’s most innovative and cost-reducing government programs. Its success is recognized throughout the state, including the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development, “Streamlining Superstars,” and California Association for Local Economic Development’s annual “Awards of Excellence,” programs.

Winners will be recognized at an Awards Reception on November 18, 2015 at the Center Club, for achievement in the following categories: Business Retention and Expansion, Responding to Globalization, Sustainable and Green Development, and Real Estate Redevelopment and Reuse. The Partnership Award will be presented to the nominee demonstrating a steadfast commitment to public-private partnerships, and the Leadership Award for Public Service will be presented to an outstanding leader in the public sector who is advancing economic development in their community.
