Village of Crestline CEDS Report

A Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) is a locally-driven plan for economic development. The CEDS process is an effective method for coordinating economic development efforts, engaging stakeholders, and establishing a strategic guide for collaboration. A diverse group of local representatives from the private, public, and nonprofit sectors make up the Strategy Committee, which is responsible
for developing and updating the CEDS.

The Village of Crestline contracted the Bowling Green State University (BGSU) Center for Regional Development (CRD) to act as the lead agency for the development of this first CEDS for the village. The CEDS process is overseen by the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) and CRD is an EDA University Center. The CEDS process commenced with the first Strategy Committee meeting in May 2020 and concluded when the CEDS was finalized in January 2021.

We’ve established a call center to answer questions and address concerns about COVID-19. Avita’s Coronavirus Information Hotline is open 8:00am-6:00pm daily at 419-468-0800. Avita has nurses answering the hotline to talk to citizens and triage in case they need to go to the Emergency Room.   Avita has also started doing telehealth visits so people do not have to go out and sit in doctor’s offices, which is an option if they need to see their doctor for something else.

If the phone lines are not answered due to high call volume or after hours, the call will be forwarded to the Ohio Department of Health Information Hotline.

Here is a link to useful information on Covid-19 from the Ohio Department of Health.
