Existing Business Retention & Expansion (BRE)
Orange County has recognized that most business growth comes from its existing business community. To support the growth and success of existing business, Orange County Economic Development has developed a visitation program, where a face-to-face meeting is scheduled, and local government and business executives can sit down and discuss important issues. The main goal of the program is make sure that existing businesses are aware of the many programs and resources available that may assist in overall business climate and growth.
Here are a few ways that Orange County can assist from a local level:
- Serve as an advocate within the County and assist with necessary regulatory requirements;
- Assist with scheduling for the Applicant Review Committee (ARC) meeting;
- Provide a single point of contact for business services;
- Help identifying appropriate contacts for local government department.
To schedule an onsite visit or discuss available resources, please contact the Office of Economic Development at (540) 672-1238, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
