The enterprise zone does not impact underlying property zoning and there are no costs to the property owner or tenants. Enterprise zoning incentivizes businesses to expand within the zone and create employment opportunities. New investments, including building construction, improvements and equipment, receive a three to five year tax exemption.

A letter was sent May 17 to property owners within the current and proposed enterprise zone. The city is proposing expansion of the enterprise zone both within city limits and the urban growth boundary. The letter included a map of the proposed zone expansion along with a flyer from Clackamas County's economic development department, which manages Molalla's enterprise zone, outlining criteria for qualifying projects.

More information can be found in the letter to property owners sent by the city.
