Cecil County Wants to Expand Beyond its Industrial Base
Cecil County Office of Economic Development - OED landscape is taking off in some new directions with projects focused in the residential, entertainment and sports tourism industries. For years Cecil has leveraged its access to Interstate 95 to expand its industrial and e-commerce base with tenants like Amazon.com, Lidl US and Medline moving into large warehouses. With the new push to grow even more along the major corridors of I-95 and U.S. Route 40, the jurisdiction is on the road towards a more solid future. “We are looking at attracting bioscience and we are building residential units. The additional rooftops into Cecil and the retail and office pad sites, our sports tourism opportunities, are all elements for mixed-use development growth and really go to creating a corporate culture here. We’re excited to be a jobs generator,” said Steven Overbay, Cecil County Economic Dev Director and EAGB advisory committee member. Via Baltimore Business Journal.
