Work on future Conesville Industrial Park is moving forward

Conesville Industrial Park-Coshocton provides small town culture with big city opportunities.

CONESVILLE − An industrial park on the site of the former American Electric Power plant outside of Conesville is coming to fruition with officials already talking to businesses that could move in.

The coal-fired plant closed in May 2020 after 62 years of operation. The Frontier Group of Companies, whose core business is Frontier Industrial Corp., took over about 2,500 acres that June, including the main buildings with plans on razing most structures, remediating the coal land and turning the site into the Conesville Industrial Park. They’ve been doing work since that time, including razing three of the large stacks in December. There are also plans to erect a 50-megawatt solar array.
