IN THE ZONE MAYORS UNVEIL NEW BUSINESS-ORIENTED WEB SITE.

Byline: Daily News

PALMDALE - Lancaster Mayor Frank Roberts and Palmdale Mayor Jim Ledford have unveiled a new Web site for the Antelope Valley Enterprise Zone.

The Web site, www.avez.org, is a cooperative effort between both cities. Los Angeles County is also a partner with the cities and a financial supporter of the zone.

``This shows how the Antelope Valley does work together,'' said Ledford. ``This is a great example of how our cities cooperate.''

``This indeed is a two-city achievement,'' said Roberts. ``The city of Lancaster is proud to be a part of this project to bring more businesses and more jobs to the Antelope Valley.''

The new site contains information on zone business incentives, profiles on companies located in the zone and a zone boundary map. It presents the growth opportunities available, land space and the affordability of the zone compared with enterprise zones elsewhere in Southern California.

It also contains information about Antelope Valley government and lifestyle, housing prices and labor force.

Art Director Kelly Grady of Davis Communications, the Lancaster business that designed the new site, said the site's hot air balloon theme was created to emphasize ``success reaching new heights through the enterprise zone.''

Working with Palmdale zone manager Carrier Rogers and Lancaster zone manager Cheryl Rose, Grady designed the new site categorically to emphasize the who, what, when, where and why of the zone.

The enterprise zone is a special tax incentive area located within the cities of Palmdale and Lancaster and northerly unincorporated portions of Los Angeles County. It was established by the state of California in 1997.

Businesses that locate within the zone can participate in programs that offer significant tax advantages including state hiring credits, state sales and use tax credits, and business expense deductions.
