City of Stanton: Business Appreciation, Expansion and Retention Program
The City of Stanton recognized that retaining business is a vital component to the overall economic health of the community and made the necessary changes to work with the business community in a more timely and cost efficient way. The Business Appreciation, Expansion and Retention Program is a comprehensive strategy to assist business in each stage of development, including marketing, site design, planning entitlements, building review, construction, business licensing, and post-business licensing. The city was able to dramatically cut down permit application processing times by 50 percent and now has the fastest application process in the county.
