Welcome to the City of Pataskala’s Economic Development Webpage! The City is committed to expanding its non-residential commercial and industrial tax base in order to secure a strong financial foundation for the community. With over 30 square miles of area and strategic location, the City has ample room to blend its quality neighborhoods with acres of greenfield development, distinct rural character and vital commercial corridors.
The City is located between the recently reconstructed State Route 161 and Interstate 70 corridors. We are traversed east-west by the State Route 16 (Broad Street) corridor and north-south by the State Route 310 corridor. This strategic location offers unmatched access to expansive development sites and business assets in and around the area. The City’s excellent transportation network conveniently links good, services, and an excellent workforce. The City has three historic village downtowns balanced with generous availability of greenfield development sites.
Pataskala offers a wide range of incentives to encourage investment in the community. Any business in Pataskala that imports or exports goods internationally can obtain Foreign Trade Zone status as part of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority, FTZ 138 region.
The Ohio Department of Development designated a 300+ acre site in the City as an Ohio Job Ready Sites (JRS), recognized as one of the premier sites for manufacturing and industrial development in the State of Ohio. An additional 200 acres with the same array of amenities is located adjacent to this site and together they make up the Pataskala Corporate Park. The Corporate Park is located at the southeast corner of State Route 16 (Broad Street) and Mink Street .
