Who Wants to Be a Zone in 2009?

Along with Needles, Cathedral City, Colusa County, and Calaveras County, we can now add the City of Monrovia to the list of jurisdictions expressing an interest in becoming an Enterprise Zone next year.  According to the November 18 Monrovia City Council Minutes, the City has entered into an agreement with a consultant to prepare an EZ application.

The four zones expiring in 2009, Los Angeles Harbor, Madera, Sacramento-Florin Perkins and Sacramento-Army Depot, should also be expected to submit new applications.

In addition, there were five jurisdictions that applied in the 2008 designation round who were not selected: Pittsburg, Gardena, El Monte, Carson, and West Coachella Valley.  Theoretically, they have the advantage of having already prepared applications and having them scored by HCD.

It could be a very crowded field.
