National Road Business Park
The development of the National Road Business Park will truly be a unique, inter-governmental effort, as the funding for purchase and development is being shared jointly between the ZMCPA, Muskingum County and the City of Zanesville. Additionally, we are actively pursuing over $1.25 million in grant dollars to assist with the creation of the park.
The immediate goal at the National Road Business Park will be developing the 203 acre Greenfield site into a viable location capable of holding a ~1 million square foot facility with sufficient infrastructure in place. Combined with numerous sites for smaller facilities, this will create employment opportunities for the residents of Muskingum County and Southeastern Ohio. The ZMCPA will have the ability to market these sites and better compete for new project leads.
The first phase of development will begin in Summer 2018 with traffic studies taking place.
The Board of Directors and local elected officials recognize that investment must take place in order to continue to move Muskingum County forward. The National Road Business Park will provide an excellent opportunity to enhance the economic climate, and provide Muskingum County with a competitive edge to add new business locally.
