Breaking News: Arvin Enterprise Zone Receives Final Designation

It was back on November 3, 2006 that HCD announced the list of 23 Enterprise Zones to win designation in the first process of its kind since the program’s inception.   First on that list was the City of Arvin.

Since there had never been a zone in Arvin, they did not benefit from the special legislation in AB 1550 to allow the zone to function while in its conditional status.  Instead, for nearly three years, the State has had only 41 active zones instead of the 42 allowed by statute.

The wait is finally over, and, pending the Mayor’s signature on one final document, the Arvin Enterprise Zone will go into effect with a start date of 9/30/2009.
