New Financing Tool for Economic Development

First Project - Cascades of Brimfield
The first project to receive financing through this agreement is the Cascades mixed use development located at Tallmadge Road and I-76 in Brimfield Township.  The infrastructure necessary for the project, water, sewer, road work and signals were financed through a tax exempt bond issued by the Summit County Port Authority.
