Bexley Community Improvement Corporation


In 2012, Bexley City Council authorized the creation of the Bexley Community Improvement Corporation, a development agent of the City of Bexley.  In early 2013, the Mayor will be submitting a proposal for appointees to the CIC's board of directors, subject to approval by Bexley City Council.

Pursuant to Chapter 1724 of the Ohio Revised Code, Community Improvement Corporations (CICs) can be formed and designated as a city development agency to "advance, encourage and promote the industrial, economic, commercial and civic development of a community or area".  The intent of the Bexley CIC is to form an empowered board of directors to advance the development goals of the City in a way that leverages the City's resident development talent and increases the ability of the City to be flexible and proactive in its development efforts.
