Whereas, the designation of an enterprise zone does not grant or imply permission to develop land within the Zone without complying with all prevailing zoning, regulatory and permitting processes and restrictions of any and all local jurisdictions; nor does it indicate any public intent to modify those processes or restrictions, unless otherwise in agreement with applicable comprehensive land use plans; and
