Part XII. Procedures for Enterprise Zone Renewal

13VAC5-112-530. Procedures for zone renewal.

A. Enterprise zones designated pursuant to 13VAC5-112-460 are in effect for an initial 10-year period with up to three five-year renewal periods, except as provided for in 13VAC5-112-510 and 13VAC5-112-520. Enterprise zones designated prior to July 1, 2005, are eligible for one five-year renewal. Recommendations for five-year renewals shall be based on the locality's performance of its enterprise zone responsibilities, the continued need for such a zone, and its effectiveness in creating jobs and capital investment. The following procedures shall be used in considering such an enterprise zone for renewal.

B. In anticipation of the 10th, 15th, and 20th anniversaries of an enterprise zone's designation, the locality shall submit to the department on the prescribed form information regarding, but not limited to, (i) the area conditions; (ii) the continued need for the enterprise zone; and (iii) its long-term effectiveness in creating jobs and capital investment. The department shall also consider the locality's long-term performance of enterprise zone responsibilities.

C. A jurisdiction that has shown satisfactory performance and effectiveness, or that is making steady improvement in performance and effectiveness, or has a continued need for an enterprise zone will be recommended to the Governor by the department for an additional five-year designation period. No enterprise zone designation shall be in effect more than 25 years.

D. A jurisdiction that has shown consistently poor performance and effectiveness or that no longer needs an enterprise zone will not be recommended for renewal and will be notified of such in writing by the department.
