Business Retention and Expansion

The City of Cerritos Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) program is designed for businesses looking to expand in the City of Cerritos. The BRE program is a community-based economic development effort that promotes economic growth in the City and was developed to allow City staff to identify opportunities for businesses in the City of Cerritos. The City’s proactive BRE team works directly with businesses and economic development organizations to provide assistance that can result in the retention and creation of jobs and investments in the City of Cerritos. The BRE team can help with zoning questions, permit assistance, and other programs that help large and small businesses.

Retention of businesses is a high priority for the City of Cerritos and is part of a larger effort under the 2007 Economic Development Strategic Plan. For more information about the BRE program, please contact the Department of Community Development at (562) 916-1201.
