Newark Development Partners is a 501c3 Community Improvement Corporation formed in Newark Ohio to help progress the agenda of the city. When they first started, they focused on collaboration with the city during the utility upgrade and streetscape project, which was by all accounts a wonderful success.

Because of the massive utility upgrade project, streetscape, traffic pattern change, Mt. Vernon & 4th Street bridge replacement, Newark Development Partners (NDP) developed We Dig Newark to enhance communication with the public.

Next on the agenda for NDP and the City of Newark is the addressing image of the city and communicating that to our residents, businesses, organizations, and those outside the city who look to Newark as a location to visit live, and start a business.

Newark Development Partners is a collaborative venture engaging the public and private sectors dedicated to incentivizing investments in Newark, Ohio in order to sustain economic development, create jobs and further improve the business, individual and residential living areas of our vibrant and attractive city. This website is designed to offer downtown patrons and the community information such as the following:
