"Mobilizing resources for businesses to thrive in our Waterfront District"
Entertainment District legislation approved

12/17 -- Good news: At the December 8th Lorain City Council meeting the proposed Community Entertainment District (CED) was discussed and moved to the second reading. All voices at the meeting from the public were positive. This is the result of months of discusssion on the matter between Lorain Growth Corporation and the city of Lorain. We evaluated the proposed district and the benefits and decided to proceed with presenting it to council for approval. At the December 15th meeting council approved the proposal and recommended the application process for the CED should proceed. We have worked hard on this and believe strongly that it will entice development in Lorain Growth's Downtown District. The city, The Port Authority, and Lorain Growth, have already discussed several development ideas with building owners and developers. The new year should bring many new faces and developments in downtown.
