The City of Irvine offers an array of development and expansion opportunities to existing City businesses, and for those seeking to relocate to Irvine in the future. Through its many Business Attraction programs, Irvine has become the number one location choice for companies of all types and sizes.
The majority of the City's economic development programs are coordinated through the Irvine Chamber of Commerce “Destination Irvine” program www.destinationirvine.com. Through Destination Irvine, information and assistance is readily available on business-related incentives, along with data on demographics, development standards, and services such as childcare coordination, affordable housing opportunities, schools, recreation programs, and other amenities. Information on wages, labor, housing, infrastructure, fees and other subjects utilized in facilitating a relocation or expansion is also available as needed.
Local lending institutions are available to assist in business expansion by providing financing opportunities to cover various relocation costs, just one more incentive for businesses to choose Irvine as their home.
The City of Irvine is also considered a premier location for film projects due to its expansive areas, and state-of-the-art structures and facilities. The City offers free or low-cost filming permits (depending on whether City services are required), location information, and a wealth of appealing and convenient visual opportunities throughout the area. Film permits are coordinated through the City’s Development Services Department. For complete information, call (949) 724-6361.
