Bend’s Assistant City Manager applauds the recent approval to greatly expand Enterprise Zones in Bend.

 

Hard hit cities are allowed to offer special tax incentives to businesses that locate in those zones.  The amount of the incentive is tied to the number of jobs the business will create.  Assistant City Manager Jon Skidmore was a guest on 1110 KBND's Your Town this morning.  " We think it's going to make not only Juniper Ridge but other areas attractive to businesses looking to expand, grow, build new buildings.  It’s a great tax incentive program and I was really happy we were able to expand it because it will put us on a competitive level with our neighboring cities as well as throughout the state.”  The size of the current zone expands from about 2 acres to almost 6 acres. The State approved the change last week.
