    Chasing Smokestacks and Promoting Sprawl: Economic Development in Ohio

    19 OCTOBER 2011

    “Economic development” is the universally acknowledged highest priority in Northeast Ohio and it’s well funded.

    Yeah, I’m a fan of Rustwire, and while they cover the entire region, there’s little info on Columbus. Mostly centered on Northeast Ohio with some splashes of Pittsburgh and Buffalo.

    Fun fact: Rustwire founder Angie Schmitt is the person who wrote our recent Cleveland travel guide:

    Well, technically we’re not rust because we’re too far south. That and our 2000 cars are just starting to rust while they’ve got rusty 2003s.
