Or. Admin. R. 123-650-4000 - DESIGNATIONS AND BOUNDARY CHANGES - Initiating Designation

To designate or re-designate an enterprise zone under ORS 285C.065 or 285C.250:

(1) The process begins with the Sponsoring Government(s) sending a formal advisory to the Department of its intent to re-/designate. This may happen at any time for a new designation, but for concurrent re-designation, the local zone sponsor shall timely provide the advisory under ORS 285C.074 after January 1 (but by May 16 at the very latest), preceding July 1 when the existing zone will have Terminated-by-Statute.
(2) The Department will respond promptly to such an advisory, which if by telephone will be memorialized at least through email, consulting with the Sponsoring Government(s) about:
(a) The utility, impacts and responsibilities of re-/designating and having an enterprise zone;
(b) Steps to re-/designate a zone, including but not limited to formally sending notice to and consulting with local taxing districts, after this consultation by the Department has taken place;
(c) Documentation, as well as sample resolution language, needing to be submitted to the Department;
(d) Economic hardship criteria and possible assistance in identifying measures for the local area;
(e) Prohibitions in OAR 123-650-4900(2); and
(f) Other matters as appropriate or necessary.
(3) Not less than 45 days after advising the Department, the Sponsor Governments may submit the enterprise zone re-/designation, as described in OAR 123-650-4100 (electronically as desired).
