Award for Business Retention and Expansion

City of Orange: Volkswagen of Orange

After Volkswagen of America identified the City of Orange as a possible new dealership location, with a 90-day timeframe to open shop, the city mapped out an aggressive timeline to facilitate the process. This included relocating and rebranding the existing Orange Empire dealership, expediting entitlements for both projects, and establishing a new city-wide sales tax sharing program. By cutting through red tape, the city reduced the entitlement process from the typical nine month timeline to 90 days, created 50 full-time jobs, provided the reuse of an existing commercial property, and resulted in the attraction and retention of two businesses in the city. Through this project, the city became one of the first Orange County cities to establish a formal economic development incentive policy to attract and promote business expansion and jobs  creation.
