Developing a Stronger Community

Tap into an area that is upscale, growing, and underserved. Northeast Ohio's largest township, Concord, offers a wealth of development opportunities-and you've got a partner to support your efforts. The Concord-Painesville Joint Economic Development District (JEDD) is focused on creating an environment with the amenities that residents desire, including retail, business, light manufacturing and convenient access to a healthcare corridor.

The JEDD's collaborative efforts encourage a vibrant business community-and that's because of our members. JEDD members are community supporters who recognize the value of positive development and can take advantage of benefits, including:

Attracting development. Marketing support for landowners creates national visibility to draw in desirable investors, retailers, medical institutions, light manufacturing operations and businesses of all kinds. The JEDD also helps coordinate development through a joint review of development plans by township and county departments.

Supporting business. Existing businesses in Concord and Painesville benefit from the JEDD and development efforts through infrastructural improvements, utility cost cuts, more visitor and consumer traffic, and sustainability from a stronger community.

Providing access to services. JEDD members qualify for discounted water rates from the City of Painesville, and have access and support from local economic development professionals to increase your property's exposure to the area site selection and development entities.

Growing a stronger community. JEDD's mission is to foster the type of retail and business development that strengthens the community and provides desired amenities to residents, while attracting visitors. A stronger economy will sustain the character and rich qualities Concord has to offer.
