Cal Poly Pomona, Fairplex, Pomona and Los Angeles County have made a proposal to Amazon for Pomona to be the new home for the internet giant’s second headquarters.

Supported by a coalition of business, education and health care institutions, transportation and government agencies and utilities, the proposal, called Amazon PolyPlex, highlights education, innovation and commerce.

"By joining forces with Fairplex, the City of Pomona and the County of Los Angeles, we are proposing the opportunity to tap into the limitless potential of this region, where innovation, creativity, education and commerce converge,” Cal Poly Pomona President Soraya M. Coley said. “As a polytechnic university, we have a distinct model of hands-on education that teaches our students to adapt, collaborate and succeed in an ever-changing world, exactly the kind of employees that Amazon values.”

In addition to providing smart, talented graduates and strong educational programs, Cal Poly Pomona has land available for development at Campus South (formerly the Lanterman Developmental Center) and at Innovation Village.

“We know that there will be intense competition,” said Fairplex President and CEO Miguel A. Santana, “but we are confident that our Amazon PolyPlex bid will stand out among the best of them. We check off all the boxes. We have available land, an educated workforce, world class colleges and universities, affordable housing, proximity to rapid transit and international airports, and strategically located in one the largest, most diverse and dynamic metropolitan areas on Earth.”

Strategically located at the intersection of four counties and five major freeways and highways, Amazon Polyplex signifies a new day in Pomona, one in which city leaders aim to build on its renaissance and brand it as the new hub of Southern California.
