Local economic development office gets Site Readiness Grant

Greater Chillicothe and Ross County Development has been awarded an OhioSE 2020 Site Readiness Grant.

The 2:1 matching grant will assist the owners of 3 properties, known as Prairie Run North, Prairie Run South and Prairie Run & Delano Road, in the completion of due diligence studies needed to prepare these parcels for future industrial development.  The studies to be performed will satisfy many of the criteria necessary to qualify for the Jobs Ohio Site Authentication program.

Adjacent to US23 and the SR207 Connector, they represent a combined total of 86 acres and present a great opportunity for an industrial park.  This is a great step forward in site-readiness for Ross County.

And, on Thursday, May 28, the board of the Joint Economic Development Initiative of Southern Ohio (JEDISO) also awarded additional grants from the Fluor BWXT Opportunity Fund to support the project.
