PARIS – The Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) has announced approval of Enhanced Enterprise Zone (EEZ) designation to Monroe County. This designation will allow county officials to continue to move forward with economic development efforts.
The Enhanced Enterprise Zone program was implemented in 2004.

Zone designation is based on certain demographic criteria, the potential to create sustainable jobs in a targeted industry and a demonstrated impact on local cluster development.
