The Economic Development Council for Island County in partnership with the City of Oak Harbor invites you to an informative forum on the city’s new economic Opportunity Zone.

Please join us at this free event to hear about the U.S. Treasury Department’s Opportunity Zones (OZ) program. Established by Congress in the Tax Cut and Jobs Act, the program has caused a bit of a frenzy, not just for investors seeking big tax savings, but also for municipalities seeking to lure capital to economically stressed areas.
