Local News in Brief : Industrial Park Will Add 200-Plus Jobs

Metro Digest

November 12, 1988

Construction of a large industrial park in Pacoima will add more than 200 jobs within the community's "enterprise zone," a state-designated area for urban renewal, officials announced.

The $5.8-million project, the biggest in the area, will more than double the jobs in the 3-year-old zone as it turns eight acres near Whiteman Airport, an area plagued with illegal dumping, into a light-industrial complex with five buildings, according to Anne Dunne, manager of the Pacoima Enterprise Zone.

Pacoima is one of 13 California communities selected in 1986 by the state Department of Commerce to participate in the enterprise zone program, designed to revitalize depressed areas by offering incentives, such as tax breaks and low-interest loans. The Pacoima zone covers a 6.7-square-mile area.
