CEP and Champaign County, Ohio Economic Project News and Developments - Champaign Economic Partnership - CEP Ohio

The Champaign Economic Partnership website, launched about a year ago, will be updated early next year with more resources to help businesses locate and expand in Champaign County, said CEP Director Marcia Bailey.
The CEP was designated Champaign County's economic development agency in July 2015. "As the economic development agency serving all of Champaign County, the CEP serves as the starting point for local business development," Bailey said. "Workforce initiatives like these are vital to current employers and will help us attract new businesses to Champaign County," Bailey said. "Our community is fortunate to have the welcoming environment from the local manufacturers," CEP Economic Development Director Marcia Bailey said. "They are anxious to showcase their products, explain the skills needed to work in today's manufacturing environment, and offer time for the students to have a true hands-on learning experience. "We are also fortunate to have our local school systems (local school districts, Ohio Hi-Point and Urbana University) that want the students to have the opportunity to visit and learn more about the various career options that are available to them in manufacturing," she added. The event aims to educate students about the manufacturers located in the community, their products and the skills needed for employment, Economic Development Director Marcia Bailey said. Champaign County has about 3,725 manufacturing jobs, Bailey said, up from about 2,900 in 2013. >>RELATED: Honda supplier plans $24M to $34M expansion in St. Paris However a majority of the local manufacturing workforce has neared retirement age, including many who at the higher-end of the pay scale, Bailey said. About 49 percent of local manufacturing employees are between 45 and 64 years old, while just 3 percent are between the ages of 19 and 24, she said. "We need these students, this younger workforce to fill the positions that will need to be filled," Bailey said. "It's a huge, huge issue." The average annual earnings of a manufacturing worker is about $66,000 in Champaign County, she said. "You don't find those kind of jobs immediately, but you start working your way up," Bailey said. Education is still vitally important, Bailey said. Students can also enroll in college while they're still a high school student through Ohio Hi-Point, she said. "It's not just one path, there are many paths," Bailey said. Chairman Dr. David R. Decker has announced the appointment of Marcia Bailey to the Urbana University Board of Trustees. Bailey is director of the Champaign Economic Partnership, a collaborative regional economic development agency of Champaign County and the city of Urbana. She is board president of the Monument Square District, which supports the city's central business district, and she serves on other local and regional boards. An alumna of Urbana University, she earned her B.S. in Social Sciences from Urbana in 1995. She is a Triad graduate, mother of three adult sons and married to Ned Bailey. "I am proud of Urbana/Champaign County and proud to call it home," she said. "I am both elated and honored to serve my alma mater as a member of the board of trustees. The university is a tremendous resource for our region and is on a path for growth and long-term sustainability. It's an exciting time to become more deeply involved with the university and I am looking forward to the opportunities ahead." "I am very pleased that Marcia has joined the board," Decker said.

"American Pan has met their agreement regarding their employees," Marcia Bailey said.
To date through the agreement, the company has invested $2.2 million, while $103,547 in taxes have been forgone. Under the enterprise zone agreement with Ultra-met, 120 Fyffe St. in Urbana, the company agreed to invest $510,000 in real property, $1.5 million in personal property, create 22 jobs, and retain 30 jobs in return for a 75 percent abatement for 10 years (through Dec. 31, 2020). "At this point, they have reported 11 new jobs created, and the investment is on track," Marcia Bailey said. Marcia Bailey said during the length of the 10-year agreement, the company received a 45 percent reduction in real property taxes in exchange for creating two positions and retaining 88 employees. "They are now at the 88 retained and have maintained the two new employees," she said, noting the company invested $2.1 million during the agreement. "Everything is on track as specified with the agreement," Marcia Bailey said. The CRA agreement with White's Service Center, 1325 N. Main St. in Urbana, is a 50 percent tax abatement for 10 years (through Dec. 31, 2019). During the length of the agreement, the company has pledged to invest $250,000 in real property and $2,500 in personal property, create one new position, and retain one position. "They did hire a new person and have retained the other," Marcia Bailey said. Marcia Bailey said the TIRC's recommendations will be presented to both the Urbana City Council and Champaign County Commission on Thursday for final approval. Chairman Dr. David R.
