About the Clinton County Port Authority

Specifically charged with economic development and job creation, Port Authorities in Ohio can take advantage of their legal authority to encourage and enhance economic development opportunities for businesses to start and grow. The Clinton County Port Authority (CCPA) was established in 2004 by the Clinton County Commissioners.  

In June of 2010, the Clinton County, Ohio, Port Authority took ownership of the Wilmington Air Park. It now operates and manages over 1,900 acres surrounding the two-runway, fully functional Part 139 airport. Nearly 3 million square feet of office, warehouse and hangar space are included in the airport property. In 2019, the Port Authority was designated as the economic development organization for Clinton County and all county development efforts are now concentrated through the Port Authority. 

Today, the Clinton County Port Authority is the first stop for businesses looking to expand into Clinton County and local businesses looking to grow.  

The Clinton County Port Authority is governed by an all-volunteer board appointed by the Clinton County Commissioners. Board members serve four-year terms.
