The Ohio Department of Transportation is currently asking for feedback on the need for improvements on US Route 23. Delaware County Farm Bureau wants to make sure agriculture’s voice is heard in this process. Some members have raised concerns about any potential improvements and how they may result in the taking of farmland for road construction. While we are interacting directly with ODOT, we would also appreciate your help in sharing your thoughts with ODOT. Please see the information below on public meetings coming up this month as well as a link to a survey. This information will assist ODOT in determining the needs and concerns of our community.

Route 23 Connect Public Meetings

Two additional public meetings have been added to provide another opportunity to learn about the project. The information shared will be the same that was shared at the November public meetings; no new information will be presented. ODOT will introduce the initial concepts, explain how they will be evaluated, and get your input. You are encouraged to ask questions and/or provide comments during this meeting.  The same information will be presented at all meetings – whether they are virtual or in person – so please attend the meeting that best suits your needs.  A presentation will be given at the start time of each meeting.

If you have issues with local planning or have legal questions, someone at the Farm Bureau has the answer for you, or they’ll connect you with someone who does.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.
