(2) "Original enterprise zone," as used in ORS 285C.115(2) for purposes of boundary changes, means the area within the boundary of the zone at the time when it was most recently (re-)designated, irrespective of any intervening boundary change.
(3) Enterprise Zone Population means, based on either the latest decennial U.S. Census count or the most recently available estimate from the Portland State University Population Research Center:
(a) For rural enterprise zones, the total population of incorporated cities, in which any part of the zone is located, plus the currently estimated population of Census Statistical Units that tightly envelope unincorporated zone areas; or
(b) For urban enterprise zones, the currently estimated population of Census Statistical Units that tightly envelope zone areas, and it may also include any associated residential area or group of such areas proximate to the zone boundary that encompass a populace, whom the Sponsoring Government(s) explicitly intend to help through employment opportunities and relevant public or private efforts or programs in relation to the zone.
(4) Sponsoring Government means a county, port or city designating an enterprise zone (or a district that has effectively the same governing body as the county, port or city, and that contains all of the city, port or county territory inside the proposed zone). A Sponsoring Government may be any city, port or county in Oregon, or combination of such jurisdictions as provided in OAR 123-650-0500, except as prohibited in OAR 123-650-0600 or 123-650-4900(2)(c).
