Mt. Healthy/Springfield Township Joint Economic Development Zone 1 (JEDZ1) Board

Residents of Springfield Township voted and passed an issue on the May 6, 2014 ballot to partner with the City of Mt. Healthy and create a joint economic development zone (JEDZ). The designated zone includes properties in Springfield Township where businesses are located and/or individuals work, excluding home-based businesses.  The JEDZ enabled the collection of a 1.5% payroll/earnings tax on businesses and individuals who work in the zone.  The City of Mt. Healthy collects the tax and allocates the revenue between the Township and the City based on the percentage outlined in the agreement.
