Twinsburg officials have to be happy with another big boost in the future redevelopment of the former Chrysler stamping plant.
State Senator Frank LaRose announced that the State Controlling Board has agreed to provide $2.2 million for the new Cornerstone Business Park's project’s completion.
The funds will be made available through the Ohio Job Ready Sites (JRS) Grant, which prepares properties for commercial use and job creation.
Located on East Aurora Road, Twinsburg and its project partners have committed to cleaning up more than 165 acres of industrial and manufacturing space, including a new 100,000 square foot facility for Vistar, a branch of the Performance Food Group’s family of businesses.
The state JRS Grant is the latest part of a $14 million commitment aimed at improving and remediating the site for business use and job creation.
The funding will assist with debris removal and various demolition needs, as well as wetland mitigation, road construction, and the installation of sewage and electrical lines.
