Cortland launches new marketing effort

Downtown Cortland

CORTLAND, Ohio (WKBN) — The City of Cortland is trying to re-market itself in order to attract new business.

The plan was unveiled Thursday morning during a community breakfast at Lake Vista. The strategy will enable city officials to identify businesses that want to come to the area and find out what their needs are and try to meet those needs.

The goal is to help fill available office space and help existing businesses in the process.

“We have got an attractive city. We have no income tax. We have great recreation opportunities, good housing, good cost of living, good tax structure. Just a really nice place to relocate people for a business,” said Cortland Mayor Curt Moll.

“We don’t have the space for large corporations, but the area around us, around Cortland, Bazetta Township and the city of Warren and Liberty and so forth, those are areas that can be developed but we are a great place for people to come and live,” said Cortland City Council President Jim Woofter.

City officials said they first plan to alert businesses and homeowners to tell them what the marketing plan is and how they can get on board with promoting the city of Cortland.
