Santa Clarita is home to thriving business sectors, including aerospace, biomedical, entertainment, manufacturing, and technology, among others.
Filming in the City of Santa Clarita
The City of Santa Clarita’s Economic Development Division focuses on retaining jobs for residents, while attracting businesses and bringing external dollars to Santa Clarita through economic development, film and tourism.
Filming is one of the City’s largest industries, contributing an average of $20 million dollars annually in economic benefit to the local economy. Santa Clarita is home to more than 20 soundstages, 10 movie ranches, and will soon be home to Disney/ABC Studio at the Ranch project, which is expected to add thousands of jobs and millions in economic benefit to the Santa Clarita Valley and greater Los Angeles County.
Santa Clarita is currently home to some of television’s most-watched programming, including NCIS, Franklin & Bash, Make It or Break It, Justified, and Switched at Birth, among other shows. If you are interested in being a part of Hollywood’s back lot, you can register your home or business as a location on the City’s film website free of charge. By registering your home or company and uploading photos, you are letting production companies know you are interested in working with them when they are filming on location in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Tourism in Santa Clarita
Santa Clarita attracts more than three million visitors each year who make plans to enjoy two of Southern California’s most thrilling theme parks – Six Flags Magic Mountain and Six Flags Hurricane Harbor. These parks, in addition to a thriving retail scene, fun family attractions, and destination recreation, make Santa Clarita a sought-after getaway.
Connecting Business Leaders with Resources
The City also partners with community organizations like the Small Business Development Center, College of the Canyons, and oversees the Santa Clarita WorkSource Center, which provides free career services for job seekers and actively works to pair job seeking candidates with local employers – all free of charge.
The City of Santa Clarita understands no two businesses are alike, and neither are their needs. For more information about doing business in the City and resources that might be of assistance to your company, please contact the Economic Development Division.
