Joint Economic Development District (JEDD)


In 2008, the Sandusky County Economic Development Corporation (SCEDC) and the Ottawa County Community Improvement Corporation (OCCIC) pulled together officials from Harris and Woodville Townships and the Village of Elmore, and the Ottawa/Sandusky County Commissioners to prepare for a proposed industrial development site at State Route 51 and the Elmore Turnpike (I 80/90) Exchange.


The taskforce’s mission is for all political parties to sign-off on a Joint Economic Development District (JEDD) agreement that will allow for the sharing of revenues and expenses connected to the proposed future industrial park development whose ultimate goal is CREATING NEW JOBS.


The development of a JEDD is a long and complicated process, but over the past few years, the taskforce has accomplished the following items: (1) developed a name for the district “Sugar Creek JEDD” since Sugar Creek runs along the far northern edge of the site, (2) developed a draft JEDD agreement under review by the parties involved, and (3) drafted a fire/EMS mutual aid agreement between the townships.


To assist with bringing infrastructure to the site, an “Ohio Job Ready Site” pre-application has been submitted to Ohio Department of Development. (2009) The taskforce is aware that the site is not shovel-ready, but by submitting a pre-application it puts the site on ODOD’s radar screen. In anticipation of a JEDD being developed, the Woodville Township Trustees adopted zoning rules and regulations for a Limited Industrial Planned Unit Development district (LIPUD) in Woodville Township which went into effect on October 30, 2009. Those rules can be found in the “Zoning” section on this website.


Woodville Township Trustee Bill Hammer is the township’s representative on this taskforce. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Bill at 419-467-2044 or email him at
