Perry County Will Soon Have Public Access to Buckeye Lake

As discussed during the May 11th 2019 Community Meeting, Perry County will soon have public access to Buckeye Lake via a new park located in Thorn Township. This project marks an important first step toward the revitalization of Northern Perry County and is the first public project inspired by designs created with Community input.

The Buckeye Lake Region Corporation facilitated the initial meetings that took place to imagine the design of the public access project. These meetings were funded, in part, with  grants from the U.S. Economic Development Administration and the Ohio Development Services Agency. The public access project is expected to go out for bid within the next 8 weeks.
