Industry keeps developing in Belmont County


Belmont County Port Authority Director Larry Merry says a developer is in the process of constructing three new buildings to be leased out or sold.

Two buildings will go up in the Eastern Ohio Regional Industrial Park along State Route 800 just outside of Barnesville. The third building, now under construction, is in the complex east of Barnesville along State Route 147.

"Industry and business is growing in Belmont County and eastern Ohio, so we're very pleased that people are continuing to invest in this area,” Merry said.

Merry says leaders hope to create more jobs through development in the western end of the county.
