The Santa Clarita Chamber of Commerce is considering a proposal to the City Council Tuesday to temporarily relocate its offices from its Tourney Road headquarters to Santa Clarita City Hall while the Chamber searches for a new permanent home.

Included in the proposal is the relocation of the chamber offices to the Valencia Boulevard City Hall for one year.

The Chamber proposes to occupy city hall space rent free and pay its share of utility bills.

The Chamber will seek a tenant to occupy the Tourney Road office for the remainder of the group’s lease on the property.

Newly appointed Chamber President and CEO Lois Bauccio declined to comment on the proposed move prior to discussing it with the Chamber board of directors.

The proposal calls for a Dec. 1 relocation to city hall.

  • So it wants a FREE place but yet find another occupant to pay while they are there for a year? Sounds like political accounting to me.

    Seriously, free rent to an outside political organization? (Chamber’s own statement “The Chamber takes an active role in attempting to influence government in support or opposition of business legislation that will impact its members.” Well mission accomplished. I hope the City thinks this one through, as I am sure they will, realizing that the LA County District Attorney and State Attorney General are, and will be, Democrats looking for Republican missteps. The Chamber has for years has espoused a belief that our government should be run as a business so lets take them up on that policy. Any business would lease space to the highest qualified bidder. I am sure there are plenty of organizations within Santa Clarita who would willingly pay $1 for the space to become the highest bidder.

    Declined to comment? How about “we ran our business into the ground and need government welfare money to survive” Kind of ironic?
