Buckeye Hills Regional Council Unveils New Brand at Special Event

(Marietta, OH) – The Board of Directors for Buckeye Hills-Hocking Valley Regional Development District formally announced their new name and logo today at a special community event. Now called Buckeye Hills Regional Council, the organization continues to provide services throughout the eight county region just as they always have, now with a new, more concise name.

“Buckeye Hills Regional Council has a new name and new look, but underneath it all, we are still focused on doing the work we remain committed to: improving the socioeconomic conditions of our region,” said Misty Casto, Executive Director, Buckeye Hills Regional Council. “We are a voice for our constituents,” said Casto. “We promote their interests and needs to the persons and agencies empowered to invest in that positive change.” Buckeye Hills Regional Council has provided transportation planning, economic and community development, mapping and data services, as well as directing programs that assist our most vulnerable populations. The organization will still provide those services, with a clearer connection to “who” provides them.

Previously, clients and partners may have only known the Buckeye Hills organization for economic and community development services, or as the Regional Transportation Planning Organization for the eight counties that make up Buckeye Hills, without realizing that they also administer the Area Agency on Aging services. The Board and Executive staff realized that an opportunity to educate the region about the depth and breadth of services was being missed. With one name, unifying all services and programs, constituents are better able to understand how they all work together.

“We are excited for people to know Buckeye Hills Regional Council as the multidimensional organization that it is,” said Ron Moore, President of the Board of Directors, Buckeye Hills Regional Council. “We have a diverse population with evolving needs. We’re proud to be able to identify those needs and respond to them. Changing our name won’t change that.”

Buckeye Hills Regional Council remains at its current location of 1400 Pike Street, Marietta, OH. Over the next few months, we will begin the process of revising all educational materials and signage to reflect the name change. For questions, please call 1-800-331-2644.
