New Enterprise Zone Boundaries for 2016

2016 Jeffco EZThe Colorado Economic Development Commission approved Jefferson County Economic Development Corporation's (Jeffco EDC) Enterprise Zone (EZ) re-designation application for Jefferson County.

Colorado's EZ program is created to provide a business-friendly environment in economically distressed areas by providing incentives for business development, job creation, and non-profit projects supporting economic and community development in targeted areas.

Over the course of 2015, Jeffco EDC worked in collaboration with local economic development partners, to research and review areas that met statutory eligibility criteria and submit the application on behalf of the county. The criteria to be eligible was based on one of the three qualifications; high unemployment rate, low per capita income, or slow population growth rate.

These new strategic zones in the county were effective as of January 1, 2016.
Jeffco EDC serves as the Enterprise Zone Administrator for Jefferson County. Jeffco EDC, in conjunction with our economic development partners, will contact businesses new to the EZ and educate them about the benefits of the program. Additionally, we will contact businesses that have previously utilized the program, and will no longer be in an enterprise zone.
