I enjoy keeping up on the happenings in Newark, Ohio. The city is undergoing so many changes. First a steep decline in industry and now hope with the combination of an improved infrastructure and streamlined technical advances.
From the Indian lore of the area to the military tech companies that are starting to make headway in the area, there is much to learn.
The Ohio State University and Denison University are close and their educational offerings are rapidly changing to meet the upcoming boom in Central ohio. Owens-corning, Holophane, Arvin-Meritor, and Boeing are out while new startups with promising futures are in. It's just a matter of finding your place in Newark, Ohio's economy to find your way.
Bicycle trails and parks are abundant. Nature trails in the parks provide relaxation. If that's not your type of entertainment, we have National trails raceway nearby for events like the Chevy and Mopar Nationals.
Newark was founded on the pioneer spirit. John Sparks, a member of the Louis and Clark expedition, found his way to Newark and started the first settlement hear. He found that the abundance in the area was well suited for growth. That pioneer spirit was buried as the manufacturing boom lulled Newark into security, but it's now reawakening.
If you're a business person keep an eye on the area. Your next opportunity could come from here!
