Enterprise Zones

The Denver Post recently ran a 4-part series on Enterprise Zones in Colorado. Colorado’s Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) defines enterprise zones (EZs) as “provid[ing] tax incentives to encourage businesses to locate and expand in designated economically distressed areas of the state.” If you would like more in-depth information, our library has several publications concerning the EZ program, including: General Information About Colorado Enterprise Zones from the Colorado Dept. of Revenue; Colorado’s Enterprise Zone Program from the Colorado Legislative Council; and the Colorado Enterprise Zones Annual Report, from the OEDIT, which administers the program. The State Auditor’s Office has audited the program several times, the last time being in 2007.
