Help balance growth along Middle East Fork

Clermont County citizens are invited to attend the first in a series of public meetings on Tuesday, Aug. 10 to learn about the goals and objectives of the Middle East Fork Balanced Growth Initiative. 

The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at the Batavia Township Administration Building, located at 1535 Clough Pike and will include presentations and opportunities for citizen feedback.

“Population in the Middle East Fork watershed has increased 75 percent since 1990 and it is important to ensure that plans are in place to protect our watershed by identifying areas for potential growth and economic development while protecting water resources,” said Becky McClatchey with the Clermont Soil and Water Conservation District.
