Incentivized Building Zones

Site selectors interested in locating to Zanesville or Muskingum County will find ways to incentivize projects by utilizing special building zones. 

Community Reinvestment Areas (CRA)

Community Reinvestment Areas (or CRAs) are specially designated areas within the City of Zanesville that allow for real estate tax reduction for individuals or corporations who make an investment (either rehabbing existing structures or building new) within their bounds.

Opportunity Zones

Opportunity Zones are yet another way for investors in specific geographies to take advantage of tax incentives.


In Muskingum County, there are only three townships that have enacted a zoning resolution: Falls and Perry are partially zoned, and Wayne Township is fully zoned. Below is a map showing these zoned areas, the contacts for these zoning districts are Falls, Wayne & Perry Townships.

A collaborative effort between the Muskingum County Land Reutilization Corporation, the City of Zanesville and several private partners worked to create an interactive map to assist developers and site selectors.


By clicking on “Community Development”, interactive mapping of CRA’s, Opportunity Zones, as well as local zoning are available.
