Planners Day Legislative Update Follow-up – Opportunity Zone Selection

As promised, our Legislative Affairs Director Darren Kempner was able to reach out and get additional information regarding Opportunity Zone selection – thank you Darren!

He was informed by the Western NY ESD Director that areas are being reviewed based on tax law changes, however, they are looking for local input regarding priorities. If you are interested in the Opportunity Zone selection process and wish to get more information, please visit and reach out to your regional ESD office ASAP if you have not done so already.
