The newly formed (Helping, Osnaburg, Prosper, Economically) H.O.P.E. Committee arising from the major points described in the Joint Planning Commission report is finally under way. Four subcommittees were created to meet the needs of Business Development, Housing Development, Utilities and Zoning. This initiative has risen from two years of cooperation between Stark County Reginal Planning Commission, the Village of East Canton and Osnaburg Township. Each of the trustees and our fiscal officer has been instrumental in this joint plan. Trustee Pero is serving on the zoning subcommittee. Trustee Griffith is serving on the Housing subcommittee and continues to offer guidance to the Business subcommittee as a local business owner. Trustee Vincent is serving as Chairman on the Utilities Subcommittee and was appointed to the subcommittee for his unique perspective in utilities.
