Greene County Port Authority (GCPA)

The involvement of the GCPA as a project partner offers several benefits to development and company expansion projects. Among the benefits the GCPA can bring to a project are the ability to:

  • Acquire, own, lease, sell or construct improvements to property;
  • Issue revenue bonds for port authority facilities;
  • Receive federal and state grants;
  • Cooperate broadly with other governmental agencies; and
  • Offer sales tax reimbursement on construction materials purchased in Ohio.

The Port Authority uses these powers to pass advantages along to the private developer or owner. Businesses interested in partnering with the GCPA should contact a Greene County Department of Development representative to discuss potential projects.
