Partners: Communities at Work

Don't get lost in the often-confusing web of federal, state and city governmental rules and regulations. Find people who are on your side and who can direct you to the right people and right departments when you need to get things done faster. Every city in the San Gabriel Valley has local organizations such as Chambers of Commerce and/or Business Improvement Districts, and they know the names and numbers you need to move ahead. They want new businesses in their city, and they want to help existing businesses stay in business.
