The Deerfield Township Community Improvement Corporation (CIC) will be holding its first meeting on June 20th, 2019 at 5PM at the Deerfield Township Meeting Room (4900 Parkway Drive, Suite 180).

 

The CIC was formed in May 2019 to manage the economic development activities of the Township. CIC’s are non-profit economic development corporations created for:

 

Advancing, encouraging, and promoting the industrial, economic, commercial, and civic development of a community.

 

According to Chapter 80 of the Ohio County Commissioners Handbook, “CIC’s assist with the promotion and financing of economic development by providing loans to individuals and businesses; buying, selling, and leasing real and personal property for economic development purposes; and, by entering into contracts with the state and local governments.”

 

By creating a CIC for economic development purposes, Deerfield Township is better able to control (re)development activity throughout the township.
