Geneva BOE agrees to sale, lease of land as city finalizes contracts



The Pairings committee plans to “rehabilitate” the barn and have the start-up business open by the fall, Brown said, with the expectation to offer wine and food education including wine tastings, food pairings and cooking classes; regional wine tours and concierge services; retail sales of Ohio wines, gifts and supplies; a farmer’s market, special events and business development assistance.

Considered a regional economic development project, the Pairings project is in the fundraising phase as the committee is raising start-up capital and initial operating capital from individual benefactors, corporations and regional foundations.

Geneva City Council President Jeff Piotrowski said he is excited about the Pairings project and is pleased to work closely and successfully with the school district.

“I would like to thank the Geneva Area City School board and administration for working with us on this important economic development project,” he said. “As all local governments struggle with cuts to their budgets from the state, it has never been more important for us to focus on economic development opportunities that will create that all-important four letter word — jobs.”
