COVID-19 Business Resources
It’s heartbreaking to think of the struggle that many of our local businesses are facing during this pandemic. We applaud each business owner for your strength and efforts to pivot your business model and continue to provide your services to the community.
We encourage each business to continue to monitor the current Public Health Orders set forth by the State of California and the County of Santa Clara as the guidelines that govern business activities.
The Chamber of Commerce is also working tirelessly to be a conduit of information for our businesses and community and is a great resource for information.
On June 1, 2020 the Town Council unanimously adopted an Economic Recovery Resolution to support our local business community and provide greater opportunities for businesses to expand or modify their business models to adapt to the uncertain economic environment. Some of the initiatives include streamlined policies, reduced permit fees, and the ability to utilize outdoor spaces for business activity. Acting swiftly with adoption and implementation, the Town Council demonstrated their investment to retain our cherished businesses and continue to be open for new businesses to join our community. Together with the Economic Vitality and Land Use streamlining efforts that the Council has adopted over the last few years, and the Town's current economic policies are in place to create a community that is ready to welcome and encourage business activity.
If you would like more information on the Economic Recovery efforts including how they may be applied to your specific business, please connect with me! I am happy to continue to be a resource for our current and perspective businesses.
Hang in there Los Gatos. I wish you all health, wellness, and resiliency.
Monica Renn, Economic Vitality Manager
