Chula Vista businesses as well as companies looking at the city as a potential new home now have a comprehensive resource for demographic and economic-related information about the communitythe Internet website www.cvbizsite.org.
Designed specifically with the needs of business in mind, cvcbizsite.org provides statistical information about the city's recent growth, a general overview of economic development and redevelopment projects, and detailed information on assistance programs that the city can provide to existing or new Chula Vista firms.
"With opportunities for major development projects on our bayfront, in downtown and in the eastern master-planned communities, interest in Chula Vista by business is very high right now," said Community Development Department Director Chris Salome. "Cvbizsite.org will provide a `one-stop' resource for companies looking for information about Chula Vista development opportunities and that information will be instantly available whenever it's needed. It's a very customer-friendly service we're now able to offer the business community.
The site features five main sections with information for businesses Community Profile, Recent Projects, Demographic/Community Information, Business Assistance and Targeted Industry Information. A separate section provides residents with additional information about the city's community development activities.
Building on the city's motto "Catch the Spirit" and the Chula Vista location of the ARCO U.S. Olympic Training Center, the web-page is designed with an Olympic theme. Visitors to the page learn that "America's top athletes are reaching their goals in Chula Vista," while businesses also are invited to reach their goals in the community.
The new web-page was developed by the Community Development Department to complement the variety of community information already available on the city's official web-page, www.ci.chula-vista.ca.us. Plans are underway currently to develop a second phase of cvbizsite.org that will feature a searchable database of available sites and buildings within the community for companies looking to locate in Chula Vista.
