Ontario Council Approves CRA Settlement with Constitution Subsequent Gen | information

ONTARIO – Ontario City Council on Wednesday approved a Community Reinvestment Area (CRA) agreement with Charter Next Generation (CNG) and the landowner of General Motors’ former property.

The agreement provides 15 year property tax exemption for CNG and landowner Ontario Stumbo I LLC (OSI) for property improvements at 2525 West 4th Street.

Mayor Randy Hutchinson said the deal will spur development and benefit the city.

Under the agreement, OSI and CNG expect to invest approximately $ 58 million to build and equip CNG’s new manufacturing facility. CNG will be the first manufacturer to operate from the newly developed Ontario Commerce Park, which is located on the former site of GM’s Ontario facility.

According to the agreement, the project will start on or before October 1st. All acquisition, construction and installation are expected to be completed by the end of 2022. The agreement also says the new facility is expected to create 300 new full-time positions between 2022 and 2024. Once all employees are hired, the company’s payroll will increase by $ 12 million per year.

CNG has agreed to make payments to the Ontario Local School District under a school donation agreement to offset lost tax revenue. The Ontario Schools Board approved the agreement.

The agreement is independent of job creation advice given in April.

Hutchinson told the council there had been two recent reports of coyotes attacking small dogs in the area. He said he was speaking to a trapper about containment efforts.

Coyotes are considered a nuisance so they can be hunted year-round according to Ohio law. Gun hunting is not allowed within city limits, but Hutchinson said property owners can sign a form allowing hunters to set traps on their property.

In the meantime, he urged residents to be vigilant and not leave dogs unattended outside.

Fourth district councilor Josh Bradley said the parks committee recently met to discuss project proposals for a new play area, lawn, and splashback area in Marshall Park. Bradley said the committee is waiting for a few more offers before moving on with the project.

Hutchinson also recalled that the city has golf cart legislation. Local residents are required to have their golf cart checked by the police once a year and to have their cart registered for use on public roads.

Leisure director Heather Hendrix gave an update on the summer program and upcoming events. The city will host a self-defense class for women in the common room for Ontario High School students on September 19. The Ontario Craft Show will return on December 4th. The department is also planning a scavenger hunt, truck, and haunted trail for the fall.

The department will also open a new event this year on October 21st from 5pm to 7pm. The Seniors Ball is open to seniors 65 and over from Ontario and the surrounding communities. The event is co-hosted by the Ontario Middle School Leadership Group in the middle school.

“We’re going to have a live band and snacks and games,” said Hendrix. “Your leadership group will volunteer their time to decorate and do all of these things for fun.”

The band specializes in 1940s jazz standards.
