Knox County’s Response Planning

The ADF has been leading the Knox County Intel Response Steering Committee, comprised of community partners working to prepare Knox County for the Intel Development and all new expected growth.

A consulting company was hired to conduct research on the types of growth Knox County can expect based on how development is viewed. The final portion of the study was completed in April 2023. The Intel Response Steering Committee will use the study to create a strategic plan for Knox County to prepare and react to increased levels of development in Central Ohio.

ADF plans to share the plan with the public by June, 2023.
