Canton, Perry to Collaborate in Faircrest JEDD Project

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The city of Canton does not necessarily need to annex properties to promote economic development.

There are also Joint Economic Development Districts.

City Council has approved a new “JEDD” with Perry Township for a 98-acre parcel on Faircrest Street SW in the township.

The city will run water lines to the parcel and collect the city’s 2.5-percent income tax.

It’ll be divided between Canton and Perry per the contractual agreement with each company at the site.
