The fourth annual Economic Development Summit was held in Columbiana County Monday.

The event is hosted by the Sustainable Opportunity Development Center and the various chambers of commerce throughout the county.

The goal of the summit is to connect local businesses to agencies that can help them grow.

“It’s very important for our manufacturers in our community because there are greater resources in the region than we can provide in Columbia County or just in Salem,” said Lawrence Kosiba with the Sustainable Opportunity Development Center.

A new project highlighted at the event could open up a portion of Route 30 which would be a critical infrastructure improvement for the oil and gas industry moving into the county.

“Over the years, we have tried to get this portion of Route 30, the only portion going across the state that is not four lanes, trying to get it under construction again to get the four lane all the way through to the Ohio river,” said Lawrence Kosiba, Sustainable Opportunity Development Center.

The State is taking this project under consideration.
