The principal Oregon city or cities of a federally established metropolitan statistical area (MSA), according to the most recent delineation of such statistical areas by the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) of the U.S. Government; and
Any other city that jointly undertakes comprehensive planning with such a city to determine their mutual UGB.
Subject to change in the federal delineation of MSAs in Oregon or their principal cities or in joint arrangements for inter-city planning, section (1) of this rule currently pertains to the UGBs for:
Albany and Lebanon;
Eugene and Springfield;
Portland and Hillsboro with all other cities inside the Metro UGB; and
The rural/urban category of any existing enterprise zone may switch according to a change in the circumstances described in section (1) or (2) of this rule, as determined by the Department, including but not limited to local sponsor preference, provided the zone boundary is not intersected as described in section (5) of this rule.
If a UGB amendment, a change described in section (4) of this rule, or some other occurrence causes a regional or metropolitan urban growth boundary to intersect an existing enterprise zone boundary, the zone’s categorization as either urban or rural shall remain as it is. If a subsequent modification or occurrence situates the zone entirely outside or inside of that boundary, then the zone’s categorization as rural or urban may switch accordingly at that time.
