Economic Revitalization Team (ERT)
The Economic Revitalization Team (ERT) was established by the 72nd Oregon Legislature (HB 2011) to focus state agencies on working together at the local level to increase economic opportunity and help local governments and business and property owners bring industrial sites to "shovel ready" status.
Formerly the Community Solutions Team (CST), the ERT emphasizes multi-agency coordination on projects of local and statewide significance. The ERT has regional coordinators deployed around the state to help Oregon communities and businesses succeed. They work with state agencies and local government to:
  • Streamline permitting for business and industry
  • Increase opportunities to link and leverage public and private investments
  • Provide greater local access to state resources and assistance
The Governor´s Office has directed the ERT agency directors to create lasting and systematic changes to agency policies, programs and processes for greater effectiveness and improved efficiency. The following state agency directors are members of the ERT:
