Economic Development Authority

The Economic Development Authority is a board of local residents that are striving to develop strategies that encourage families to plant their roots in Ghent and encourage & support businesses in order to further the economic prosperity of the City of Ghent.  This board also manages a local redevelopment loan program that can be used by residents to do improvements to their homes. 

See below Minutes of our EDA meetings.  

Recently, the EDA has offered tax abatement to encourage the construction of a new childcare facility that cares for 54 children that opened its doors in 2022.  We have also been working to develop/redevelop lots to make them available for new home construction.  Click below to see lots that are shovel ready. 

  • Lots for Sale for $.75/square foot. (see blow for square footage of each lot).
  • Construction of a home must commence within one year of lot purchase and be completed within one year of start.
