Ohio has an outstanding economic development network that goes above and beyond for communities, companies and people. By working together toward a common goal, you make a difference. Site Selection Magazine’s Governor’s Cup results are a testament to this unwavering work ethic. You helped make Ohio No. 1!

As the No. 1 state for projects per capita and No. 2 for total projects overall, Ohio is the only state in the nation to place in the top three in both Governor’s Cup categories.

Your work is further reflected in the JobsOhio 2019 Annual Report, which shows impressive job creation and capital investment numbers following a record-breaking 2018 and rebuilding the project pipeline.

We are proud of the many Ohio metropolitans and micropolitans that received recognition as top communities. Whether you’re a local partner or a regional one, JobsOhio is honored and grateful to work alongside you every day.

Congratulations on your well-deserved recognition and thank you for making Ohio once again a model state for economic development.

 

Respectfully,
Your Friends at JobsOhio

Factors like land price, annexation and zoning processes, infrastructure costs, density, and community design specs will make or break a developer’s go-or-no-go decision. This panel discussion will provide insights into developers’ decision-making processes, as well as help direct the focus of local economic developers to those areas in which they can add value in housing discussions.
