City Spotlight: City of West Hollywood

This month’s spotlight is LAEDC Member and 2021 Most Business-Friendly City award winner:  the City of West Hollywood! 

The City of West Hollywood is like no other city in the world. In 1984, the idea for the City of West Hollywood was proposed by an unlikely coalition of LGBT activists, seniors, and renters. These groups came together to advocate for cityhood. Located in the heart of metropolitan Los Angeles, at 1.9 square miles, West Hollywood is a robust economic and cultural center instilled with idealism and creativity. 

West Hollywood is home to innovative industries and a magnet for highly skilled professionals.
