A joint economic development district (JEDD) is an agreement between a Township and a city (or multiple cities) provided for under the Ohio Revised Code, section 715.69 through 715.90. A JEDD contract between the parties is agreed to which provides Townships with certain City authorities such as setting speed limits, the ability to levy an income tax, and protection from annexation. A JEDD is meant to create a partnership between local jurisdictions and provide economic development to both (or all parties) in the form of revenue sharing.
The City Dayton - Miami Township JEDD (Dayton JEDD) was created in July 2005. The JEDD levies a 1.75% income tax on all businesses within its boundaries. The tax income is then split 50 / 50 between both parties.
There are 12 businesses with approximately 300 employees within the 660 acre JEDD boundary.
