A coalition of San Fernando Valley business leaders is moving to lure to the Valley and eastern Ventura County a larger share of companies relocating to Southern California.
The Valley Industry and Commerce Assn. soon will begin supplying demographic and promotional materials to Los Angeles city officials who handle relocation inquiries from out-of-town firms, according to Bill Miller, the association's president.
The effort is part of a campaign to make the 34-year-old industrial group more visible in the Valley area as well as outside of it Valley, Miller said, adding, "We've decided to be more vocal."
The 400-member organization will "aggressively" push for transportation improvements and for adequate water supplies, Miller said. It will also take positions on land-use and development issues in the San Fernando, Conejo, Simi and Santa Clarita valleys.
