Low Land Prices

  • Prices range from $1.50 to $3.50 per square foot, largely dependent on proximity to infrastructure

Industrial Development and Impact Fee Deferral Program

  • Defer various development fees for a specified period of time or the issuance of a certificate of occupancy, whichever is first

Southern California Edison/McCallum Sweeney Site Certification Program

  • SCE promises to streamline their approval process.  That's one more agency on your side
  • Apple Valley is home to California's first McCallum Sweeney Consulting certified site

Customized Incentive Program

  • On a case-by-case basis, the Town will individually tailor a customized package of incentives to meet your specific needs. The level of assistance offered is proportionate to the degree of benefit derived from the development, and is measured by such factors as level of capital investment, jobs created and sales tax generated

California State Incentives
The state has numerous incentives in place to encourage investment and reduce the cost of staring and operating a business in California. These programs include tax assistance in various forms:

  • Credits for the purchase, lease or construction of manufacturing equipment
  • Tax credits for research and development costs
  • Employment training assistance
  • Industrial development bonds

Permit Process

Unique to the NAVISP, the Site Plan Review (SPR) permit process allows for the administrative review and approval for projects which propose permitted uses and conform to the requirements and development standards of the NAVISP. Those projects which do not conform to the NAVISP Standards (as identified in Table III-1, NAVISP) may require a Special Use Permit (SUP) or a Conditional Use Permit (CUP). Circumstances requiring a SUP or CUP should occur infrequently in the NAVISP, as the list of permitted uses is quite extensive. An SUP requires discretionary administrative review, while a CUP requires Planning Commission approval and is subject to public hearing and noticing requirements.
