Sponsor of a Zone

OAR 123-001 (Procedural Rules) contains definitions used in this division, and as used in this division and related divisions of this chapter of administrative rules, as well as relevant parts of ORS chapter 285C, unless the context demands otherwise:


“Sponsor” or “zone sponsor” includes the single city, port or county, or the cities, ports or counties, or any combination of these, collectively, as described in OAR 123-650 that:


Most recently designated or re-designated the enterprise zone under ORS 285C.065 (Designation of enterprise zone) or 285C.250 (Redesignation or designation of new zone following zone termination); or


Joined the zone with a change to the zone boundary under ORS 285C.115 (Change of zone boundaries).


Sponsor also refers to:


The tribal government and any city, port or county cosponsor of a reservation enterprise zone or a reservation partnership zone under ORS 285C.306 (Reservation enterprise zones and reservation partnership zones) (see OAR 123-656).


The county, multiple counties or city that sought designation of a rural renewable energy development zone under ORS 285C.353 (Designation of rural renewable energy development zones) (see OAR 123-680).


Depending on the particular context, “a sponsor” or “a zone sponsor” may refer to a single sponsoring entity or “cosponsor” of the enterprise zone included in section (1) or (2) of this rule. Such reference neither supersedes nor interferes with ORS 285C.105 (Duties of zone sponsor)(2), which compels all cosponsors to act jointly in fulfilling the duties of the zone sponsor and in taking any action with respect to the zone, with the exception of:


Restriction on hotel/resort eligibility by a city or county at designation, in joining with boundary change or partial revocation, consistent with OAR 123-650-4800 (Local Resolutions and Hotel/Resort Option)(2)(e) and (3); or


Provision of local incentives as described in OAR 123-668-1300 (Enhanced Public Services and Other Local Incentives).


The zone sponsor does not include and is not any city, port or county that simply consented to having part of its territory contained in an enterprise zone as described in OAR 123-650-0500 (Local Government Sponsorship or Consent).
