Economic Development Programs

The Village is home to approximately 70 businesses representing many different industries. These industries include customize packaging, beverage distributors, food equipment, batteries, convenience products, housewares and many others.

We are honored that our corporate partners have chosen to locate their business in Glenwillow and we work hard to provide resources to help make their businesses more efficient and productive. Some of the programs that the Village offers to assist businesses locating or growing  here are:

Community Reinvestment Area (CRA) – This state-authorized program allows the Village to offer an exemption on real property taxes for up to 15 years based on the capital investment, job creation and annual payroll. Contact the Economic Development Director for an Application at 440-232-8788.

Job Creation Grant (JCG) – This Village-authorized program allows a rebate on income taxes, paid by employees, to the company based on new job creation or an increase in annual payroll. Contact the Economic Development Director for an Application at 440-232-8788.

Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) – the Village is designated as a General Purpose Foreign Trade Zone which allows a business to be exempt from Custom duties or certain excise taxes. This program authorized by the U.S. Congress is an incentive to encourage companies to keep investment and jobs in the United States and not move production offshore. The program removes certain costs and barriers that do not exist in foreign locations. Contact the Economic Development Director, Jeremy Rowan, for more information at 440-232-8788.

Fiber Optic Program – The Village worked together with its industrial development partners to have Fiber Optic Cable installed in all Industrial Areas of the Village. This high-speed Internet cable is capable of up to 1 Gig of service. Our partners at Everstream® manage this program. Contact them at 216-923-2262 for more information.

Public Transportation – Cleveland Regional Transit Authority provides public transportation through Glenwillow approximately 21 hours per day which serves the Glenwillow businesses. During daytime hours, buses run about 30 minutes each direction and 60 minutes each way during pre-dawn and after dusk hours.
