Lake Affect: Autumn 2021 Update

 

Autumn Update from the BLRC, September 2021

While all of us are keeping a close watch on pandemic trends, the BLRC  continues to navigate issues directly affecting the quality of life in the Buckeye Lake Region. This newsletter addresses several key initiatives.

Change and growth are as inevitable as the change of seasons and the Buckeye Lake Region is experiencing an influx of interest.

At the BLRC, our goal is, and always has been, to assist communities in guiding that growth towards sustainable, positive impact on the region, based on the input of the Community.
