Two businesses going into new plaza in Ashtabula Township

ASHTABULA TOWNSHIP — Two businesses will be moving into a new plaza along the Route 20 corridor in Ashtabula Township, a spokeswoman for Osborne Properties Corp. said.

The footers are being set for a two-tenant building across from the Burger King in front of Ashtabula Towne Square mall.

The work is expected to be done by May.

The leases are not signed, so the spokeswoman would only say the space will not be filled by food vendors.

More construction is going on further west, said Ryan Whitmire, Ashtabula Township zoning inspector. He confirmed that Family Dollar, which has a location on State Road in the township, is building a new store on a 7.5-acre site adjacent to Corlew Field and across from Community First Credit Union.

Under the terms of the new county/city/township sewer district agreement, a joint economic development district (JEDD) would have to be created to accommodate the new development, City Solicitor Michael Franklin said.

The county owns the sewer lines in the township and the city owns the wastewater treatment plant. Under the sewer district agreement, employee wages and the profits from businesses in the JEDD would be subject to the city’s 1.8 percent income tax. The revenue would be shared between the city and township after deductions are made for JEDD administration and capital improvements to the treatment plant.

Ashtabula City Manager Jim Timonere said he’s excited about the businesses, hoping they will bring money into the city.
