Clarify that the zone does not compromise or override prevailing zoning, regulatory and permitting ordinances, processes or restrictions, or affect acknowledged comprehensive plans for land use;
As deemed significant or appropriate by the sponsoring government, affirm goals in having the zone, recount zone history, underscore key characteristics of the re-/designation or boundary change, or report actions taken for purposes of public involvement, including but not limited to the nature and outcome of communication or interaction with local taxing districts; and
Any such election or restriction must be reflected in the resolution(s) (jointly) adopted by each sponsoring city or county and by any consenting city or county affected by a restriction.
Any restriction makes such businesses eligible in those parts of the zone throughout the incorporated area of the city or unincorporated area of the county, to which the restriction pertains, which may be a city or county merely consenting to the zone.
With a boundary change, a positive hotel/resort election or restriction may not be made, but the jurisdiction of a city or county newly joining or consenting to an enterprise zone may be excluded from an existing hotel/resort election, and any such negative restriction may not be revised once the boundary change takes effect.
In the case of re-/designation, cities and counties may (jointly) revise an election, restriction or lack of one, regardless of what is in the resolution(s) of re-/designation, by resolution(s) adopted not more than six months after the effective date of re-/designation.
A prior election or restriction for hotel/resort eligibility does not carry over to any re-designation, such that hotel/resorts are ineligible (based on the date of application for authorization) throughout any newly re-designated zone without a positive election or restriction as described in this subsection.
The sponsor of an enterprise zone that has an existing hotel/resort election may at any time revoke that election in its entirety or in a particular city or county jurisdiction (thereby effecting a restriction elsewhere), irreversibly for the remainder of the enterprise zone’s current period of designation, but:
For a zone with two or more cosponsors, the revocation must be consistently expressed in resolutions adopted by all of them, including but not limited to any port; and
Copies of the resolution(s) of such revocation must be submitted to the Department to establish its effective date in terms of subsequent applications for authorization by relevant business firms.
