A joint economic development district (JEDD) is an agreement between a Township and a city (or multiple cities) provided for under the Ohio Revised Code, section 715.69 through 715.90. A JEDD contract between the parties is agreed to which provides Townships with certain City authorities such as setting speed limits, the ability to levy an income tax, and protection from annexation.
