Annually, the Community Development Department awards the Business of the Year Award to recognize local businesses and nonprofits that exemplify the core values of innovation, resilience, collaboration, resourcefulness, diversity, equity, inclusion, environmental sustainability or community support.
The City recognizes the indispensable contributions of local business on our community, encourages economic growth and facilitates local business support.
