Since 1946, the Oakwood Development Company has been a part of the Oakwood community effort to promote the industrial, commercial, and civic development of the Village of Oakwood and Paulding County Ohio.

 To work with the local community in strengthening the future of Oakwood.  We support the rural landscape by creating an economic climate that enhances the viability of working lands and conserves natural lands.  Help existing places thrive by taking care of assets and investments such as downtown, main streets, existing infrastructure, and areas that the community values. We also look to create new places by building vibrant enduring neighborhoods and communities that people, especially young people, don't want to leave.
