The Ohio Department of Transportation has shared the attached alternate feasibility report with the Village and surrounding communities. The phase that includes the Lockland Split has not yet received funding and they are looking at less costly alternatives to the original plan from 2012. Unfortunately, both alternatives involve additional acquisition of property, the 2nd alternative may include an additional portion of the west side Locks Site ( formerly Stearns and Foster) and what is currently the Veterans Memorial Park. In the initial meeting with ODOT, the Village expressed the priority would be to not have to give up any additional property on the Locks Site that is planned for redevelopment. They did not confirm but it was apparent that they are considering the 2nd alternative in the report. We have reviewed the report and provided feedback to ODOT in August. ODOT’s plan is to hire a consultant by the end of 2020 to develop the actual plans. We will continue to negotiate the Village’s best interest in regards to the alternative plans and hope to come to a cooperative agreement of which the Village 1) does not lose valuable land for development 2) loses as little property to acquisition as possible (residential and commercial) 3) potentially as a compromise, ask that they fund the opening of West Forrer to Shepherd. The goal would be that if they going to take additional property in Lockland that we get something in return. There will be a public engagement process to include a public meeting.Click here to download the Thru the Valley Alternative Feasibility Report View Post
