This has been a very busy spring for Silverlode! We have recently finished a few very challenging projects that garnered us some nice media coverage. Cleveland Clinic engaged us to complete a comprehensive fiscal and economic impact analysis of all of their operations (no pun intended!) in Ohio and the region.
The Greater Akron Chamber hired us to assess the economic and environmental impacts associated with different development scenarios for the Route 8 Corridor in Summit County. This project was a good example of an emerging trend in impact analysis that is recognizing the importance of green concepts and sustainability in the regional planning process.
We also completed a very interesting study for the Ohio Commercial Airports Consortium focused on the impacts of Ohio taxes on the aircraft repair and maintenance industry. Lastly, we helped several clients apply for Ohio Third Frontier and Job Ready Sites grants.
