Huntington Beach Ten Point Plan for Local Business

The City of Huntington Beach unveiled its Ten Point Plan for Local Business in March 2011. The Ten Point Plan was created as a vehicle to cement the City's commitment to supporting and influencing local business retention and expansion. After two successful years, the Ten Point Plan for Local Business was revised and updated in May 2013.

The Plan was honored by the Orange County Business Council in 2011 as the recipient of the inaugural "Turning Red Tape into Red Carpet" Award of Excellence for Business Retention and Expansion. The award was bestowed in recognition of the city's proactive approach to cutting through red tape and opening the door for businesses to not only survive, but, also to thrive in Huntington Beach.

The Plan consists of ten broad points, all connected by the common goal to increase business-friendly practices by streamlining internal processes and to support and influence local business retention and attraction. Each point is supported by specific and measurable objectives, in a dynamic and flexible structure which enables the City to continually improve its efforts and take into account - and meet - changing business needs.
