The Industrial Parkway Association (IPA) is an area located south of New California and State Route 42 in Jerome Township. Boarded by US 33 and RT 161 this area contains over 220 businesses along the parkway along with several new housing subdivisions blended into the adjacent farmland.
Due to the close proximity to the City of Dublin and I-270 the area has grown rapidly over the last 15 years and contains a wide range of businesses- automotive services, manufacturing, R&D and retail establishments. Many of the companies have relocated from other parts of central Ohio to the Industrial Parkway corridor where a supportive business environment exists.
The IPA has monthly meetings (2nd Thursday) where the association members discuss current events affecting the parkway area and look for ways to improve the business environment. Many local government representatives attend IPA meetings along with area law enforcement and fire departments officers. The businesses work with the local zoning inspector, zoning board and board of zoning appeals to ensure the quality of development is positive for the township.
The IPA board strives to provide support to the businesses by scheduling a series of presentations each month which touch on important topics for all businesses- HR, accounting, insurance, roadway/utility infrastructure, employee safety and business security to name a few. The board has been successful in procuring food truck services to the parkway area which has been very popular as well as hosting an annual IPA golf outing.
