Recently, the Scioto County Commissioners acted on a couple of measures aimed at improving the county.
First, the commissioners passed the first of two resolutions necessary to establish a Scioto County Land Bank. Then, the commissioners also announced the restructuring of the Scioto County Office of Economic Development. The office has been renamed the Scioto County Regional Planning Commission.
Leaders throughout Scioto County have been meeting and discussing the possibility of establishing a land bank in Scioto County. Leaders also discussed what advantages there are to a county land band and what funding would be available.
