City awarded $218 K grant to assess former mfg. site

According to the Business Courier, the Ohio State Control Board approved Norwood’s application for Clean Ohio Assistance Funds to assess the former Smith & Nixon Manufacturing facility property at 4817 Section Ave. The $218,993 grant will be used for a Phase II Environment Assessment, which will determine the property’s environmental suitability and possible need for remediation. The current site owner is considering building an 80,000 square-foot office/warehouse facility that will create at least 50 new jobs.
