ENTERPRISE ZONE ACT (EXCERPT)
Act 224 of 1985
125.2111 Adoption of ordinance establishing proposed enterprise zone; public hearing; notice; vote; boundaries.
(1) Beginning in 1994, the governing body of the local governmental unit shall hold a public hearing on the adoption of an ordinance establishing the proposed enterprise zone. Notice of the public hearing shall be published twice in a newspaper of general circulation in the local governmental unit, not less than 20 or more than 40 days before the date of the hearing. Notice shall also be mailed to the property owners of record in the proposed enterprise zone not less than 20 days before the hearing. Failure to receive the notice does not invalidate the hearing. The notice shall state the date, time, and place of the hearing, and shall describe the boundaries of the proposed enterprise zone. A citizen, taxpayer, or property owner of the local governmental unit has the right to be heard in regard to the establishment of the enterprise zone and the proposed boundaries.
(2) After the public hearing required by subsection (2), if the governing body of the local governmental unit intends to proceed with the establishment of the enterprise zone, it shall adopt, by majority vote of its members elected and serving, an ordinance establishing the enterprise zone. The ordinance shall include the boundaries of the zone and a finding that the zone meets the requirements of this act.
(3) For an enterprise zone established after 1993, the boundaries of an enterprise zone established under this act shall be the same as the boundaries of the empowerment zone, rural enterprise community, or enterprise community.
