Schuring: General Assembly to Move Legislation Encouraging New Housing

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – As large companies like Intel and Amazon build facilities in Ohio, are there enough houses for all these new employees to live in?

One central Ohio strategist says “no”.

So State Senator Kirk Schuring says legislation will be coming down the pipeline permitting so-called Neighborhood Development Areas.

That would allow cities and townships to offer 10-year tax abatements for new construction and major remodeling projects.

The local school board would have to go along.
