The Porterville City Council voted on Tuesday to join other stakehoders of California’s Sequoia Valley Enterprise Zone in seeking an expansion of the area’s econcomic development area. Read about it in today’s article by Denise Madrid in the Porterville Recorder.
The city joined Tulare County and all of the incorporated cities that make up the Sequoia Valley Enterprise Zone, in their decision to expand the area by approximately 4,800 acres.
Now that the participating jurisdictions are in agreement, the request for an expansion will go before California’s Department of Housing and Community Development, the agency that oversees the state’s Enterprise Zone program.
The Sequoia Valley Enterprise Zone’s original designation was just recently approved in January. See my previous post from January 2012.
