Economic development insights anytime, anywhere.
Welcome to Whitehall Works! We’ve created this podcast to highlight the comeback story that the City of Whitehall is experiencing.
Join Zach and Jenna monthly as they host special guests from other local governments and community organizations, to talk about the many economic development related topics that are important both to Whitehall and the entire Central Ohio region.
That’s part of the reason we named this podcast Whitehall Works. The City of Whitehall is working with a lot of different partners on transportation, affordable housing and workforce development. These are just some of the important topics that not only the City of Whitehall is working on, but everyone needs to work on.

Latest Episode: Mid-Ohio Development Exchange – MODE
Episode 11 Show Notes
Economic development is definitely a team sport and a lot of economic development factors are not limited to jurisdictional boundaries. Infrastructure, workforce and site selection are just a few of those areas that need cross-jurisdictional collaboration.
Something that the Columbus Ohio Region is known for is doing things the “Columbus Way.” Which simply means working together to pool all our regional resources to help the growth and sustainability of our metro area.
We are lucky in the Columbus Region to have the Mid-Ohio Development Exchange (MODE), which is a membership based organization that includes municipalities, counties, public sector organizations, private-sector businesses and utility providers throughout the region.
One of the most important things that MODE does is providing a space for economic development professionals to continuously learn. Whether that is by providing educational funds for courses through the Ohio Economic Development Association (OEDA), International Economic Development Council (IEDC) and others, or the regular programming on latest trends in economic development.
We welcome Nate Strum as our guest. He is Board President of MODE, and soon to be the Director of Economic Development for the City of Gahanna.
Plus, we welcome Niel Jurist for our regular segment, More With MORPC!
