Clermont County CIC

About the CIC

The Clermont County CIC, Inc. (CIC) was established in November 2003 as an economic development tool for Clermont County. The CIC can aid the County in many aspects of the overall adopted economic development strategy, but its current efforts are focused on facilitating industrial and office park development which will lead to new industrial and commercial investment. This will result in a greater amount of “shovel ready” industrial and office sites, a critical component in attracting new business investment to the County. Another tool being utilized by the CIC is providing financing assistance to companies through the use of Industrial Development Bonds (IDBs).

Powers of the CIC

The powers of the CIC are broad and include, by way of illustration, the following:

How the Clermont County CIC is Organized

A CIC may be designated by a county, one or more townships, one or more municipal corporations, two or more adjoining counties, or any combination of these political subdivisions. A designated CIC is the agent of the political subdivision for the industrial, commercial, distribution, and research development in the jurisdiction. The Clermont County CIC, Inc. is the designated agent of the Clermont County Board of Commissioners.

Not less than two-fifths of the governing board of any designated CIC must be composed of mayors, members of municipal legislative authorities, township trustees, county commissioners, or any other appointed or elected officers of such political subdivisions, provided that at least one officer from each subdivision must be a member of the governing board.

County commissioners may contribute funds, supplies, equipment, office facilities, and other personal property or services to a CIC to help pay expenses.

All work done through the Clermont County CIC, Inc. is managed by the Clermont County Department of Community & Economic Development.

Strategic Plan

The CIC has adopted a strategic plan to carry out a broad, multi-faceted development strategy that will facilitate job creation, capital investment and a trained workforce.
