Ohio is full of beautiful land with a wide range of sites and buildings that are ready for job creation and economic growth.

With plenty of developable land within a day’s drive of 60% of the population of the U.S. and Canada, Ohio offers unmatched advantages for companies selecting sites to expand or relocate. The state’s inventory already includes shovel-ready greenfield locations and revitalization opportunities suited for projects across all our target sectors.

The cornerstone of the state’s budget strategy is to double down on industrial site identification and development with the All Ohio Future Fund. This $750 million fund will support the preparation of large-scale economic development sites requiring robust water, sewer, energy, and other infrastructure. Ohio is preparing these sites to meet the needs of major projects — semiconductor fabs, industrial recycling, and other advanced manufacturing.

The biennial budget provides another $124 million to enhance water infrastructure (the state ranks #1 for water availability in a newly published annual Top States for Doing Business survey of professional site selectors), remediate brownfield sites, and pursue demolition and site revitalization projects to improve quality of life and support economic growth in Ohio communities.

Once operational, efficient movement of goods to regional, national, and international markets is another vital consideration. Here again, Ohio has business needs covered with the fourth-largest interstate highway system in the nation, nearly 7,000 lane miles on eight major routes, and the fourth-largest network of operating railroads. Ohio has seven commercial air carrier airports and 97 general aviation airports, and is regularly adding new flights through the JobsOhio Commercial Air Service Restoration program.
