Kern Update

Last month I reported on an indication of interest in Kern County to participate in the upcoming 2009 zone applications. The Daily Independent is now reporting that the proposal has been rejected:

The second item is a recommendation from the Community Development Committee not to participate in the Kern County Enterprise Zone pre-application analysis. The Committee unanimously voted down a proposal to pay $15,000 for a study to determine whether any areas in Ridgecrest would qualify as such a zone. Public Services Department Director Jim McRea said the return on investment of an enterprise zone was “questionable.”
