OAR 123-650-1500
Mapping and Defining Zone Boundary

Any enterprise zone designation, re-designation or boundary change shall demonstrate adherence to OAR 123-650-1000 (DIMENSIONS AND BOUNDARIES — Size and Distances) or 123-650-1100 (Extended Rural Distances) by including all of the following with the documentation submitted to the Department under ORS 285C.074 (Documentation for zone designation or redesignation to be submitted to department) or 285C.117 (Documentation for zone boundary change to be submitted to department):


An estimate to the nearest 0.1 square miles of the entire zone area (after accounting for area added or removed due to any boundary change).


Map or set of maps drawn to scale with north directional arrow, legend/scale and title using the zone name, as well as clear representation of the zone boundary, including:


An overview map showing the entire zone on a single page; and


As necessary or appropriate, inset, subsidiary or supplemental maps to:


Provide detail for portions of the zone, as referenced or linked to the overview map; and


Specify areas added or removed.


Narrative description of the overall enterprise zone boundary in a continuous fashion (incorporating any boundary change) that corresponds to the mapping in section (2) of this rule, but which would overrule the mapping in the event of any material discrepancy. The description shall rely on one of the following methods that exactly corresponds to the zone boundary, or a combination of them if fitting together clearly, comprehensively and without redundancy:


Professional metes and bounds surveying;


Permanent landmarks or natural margins such as a waterway, road, track or transmission line;


Official borders or demarcations such as city limit, urban growth boundary, county line or right of way based on specifically dated citations or documents (zone boundary does not change along with any subsequent change to the demarcation);


Whole cadastral sections, quarter sections and so forth; or


Listing of tax lots in relation to specified and dated county assessor maps with full cadastral survey (T-R-S) numbering:


In a table with two or more other data for each tax lot that further identify it, such as street address, legal description, zoning, area, tax code, coordinates or account number; and


Preferably supplemented with copies of the respective assessor maps.


The following items, which are submitted electronically to the Department (even if other items in this rule need not be):


A single set of geo-coded data (geographic information systems (GIS) shape file) specific only to that entire zone (pursuant to any boundary change) and not in combination with any other enterprise zone; and


Image file corresponding to subsection (2)(a) of this rule (silently incorporating any boundary change).
