Promoting Business, Jobs and Economic Vitality

The City of Huntington Beach is committed to promoting and sustaining a strong, healthy business climate throughout the community.  The Office of Business Development (OBD) is dedicated to enhancing the City's economy and business environment by attracting business and investment to the community, expanding the City's tax base, and balancing private sector needs with neighborhood quality of life.

Our team remains focused on serving as an advocate for the business and development community here in Huntington Beach, which includes those already established here, as well as those considering a move or expansion from another location.  Business advocacy is the reason the OBD was created.  We operate on the principle that no two businesses are alike, and that a one-size-fits-all approach isn't necessarily right for every business. 

When needed, OBD provides the assistance of a dedicated staff member to businesses in need of guidance when navigating the often overwhelming task of starting, expanding or relocating a business.  

Examples include the assistance with the overall development process starting from the conceptual stage, financing options, networking, professional development and various support services.  No idea or question is too big, too small or less important than another.  

Business Development staff is available to consult with businesses and guide them through the process of locating various resources, including providing support as a liaison between our City departments, businesses and the development community.  

If there is something we can do to assist you, please don't hesitate to contact us.  We're happy to help.
