Imperial County Board of Sups. Propose Enterprise Zone Expansion

According to the Imperial Valley Press, the Imperial County Board of Supervisors voted to expand their Enterprise Zone in order to help a golf course add 100 new jobs:

The Calexico-County Enterprise Zone that gives state tax incentives to businesses located in such areas was expanded Tuesday by the Imperial County Board of Supervisors to include the Barbara Worth Golf Resort.

For years the resort has gone into disrepair, and its new owners, Imperial Palms Resort LLC., expect to use the tax credits the enterprise zone provides to maximize the investment into the resort, said CEO Darryl Readshaw.

It is unclear how much the credits will impact the investment, Readshaw said, but the county will benefit with about 70 to 100 new jobs.
