The City is located 10 miles from Disneyland and Angel Stadium, home of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.  Yorba Linda is home to the Arthur Hills championship designed Black Gold golf course as well as the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library, which draws an average of 95,000 visitors a year.  Yorba Linda's commercial areas are located in close proximity to all major freeways making them easily accessible to Orange and Riverside County residents.

One of the primary goals of the City is to establish, maintain, and encourage a vibrant commercial and retail environment that provides business opportunities throughout the community. As part of achieving this goal, the City has developed a program to visit with individual businesses and discuss ways in which community leaders may be able to help our business community thrive. Our Mayor, along with key City staff, have met with numerous businesses over the past several years and have received positive input, constructive criticism and valuable suggestions in furthering business and community goals.

The City is proactive in identifying businesses that have long been a part of the community or companies that have specific questions about their continued operation in Yorba Linda. The Mayor continues to send out monthly invites to local businesses welcoming each to participate in an informal meeting in order to introduce City staff and acquaint ourselves with the business operation.

No business is too small or too corporate for the Mayor to visit. However, there are many commercial, office, industrial and retail operations that have yet to be visited. The Business Outreach program is open to any interested business that desires a “meet and greet” with the Mayor and is encouraged to contact the City’s Economic Development Manager to be included on the interest list. City staff, in conjunction with the Mayor, will make every effort possible to accommodate the request and schedule an introductory meeting. The purpose of the Business Outreach meeting would be to establish contacts with the City, learn about the business operation, discuss goals or growth opportunities in the community, and define ways in which the City can become your business partner.

To request a Business Outreach meeting, please contact Pamela Stoker, Economic Development Manager at (714) 961-7105 or
