The Village has reaped many “not so obvious benefits” from its recent loan deal with Creative Memories that allowed the local business e-Health Data Solutions to stay in town, Roi Qualls, co-owner of eHDS, told Village Council at its Sept.
I think it put us on the map,” Qualls said of the Village’s action. “Yellow Springs got creative and made things happen.”
In recent months, eHDS was on the verge of moving out of town after out-growing its previous office space in MillWorks and finding no appropriate alternatives in the village. The situation spurred Village staff and officials to try to find a way to keep the growing business in town, and in the end, it offered Creative Memories a $30,000 loan to subdivide that company’s currently unused office space, thus creating an appropriate space for eHDS along with additional space for other potential businesses.
