AEP Ohio Project Announcement

In December 2016, AEP Ohio will begin the Amlin-Cole 138kV Transmission Line Project, which consists of adding a second 138kV transmission line to the vacant position of the existing Beatty-Hayden 345kV transmission line.

This work will take place on the large electrical towers along Alton-Darby Creek Rd. and will extend north and south through Brown Township.

The new line will improve the electric service reliability in Franklin County and provide another source of power to Amazon. The project covers about 11 miles and is located in Brown, Norwich, Prairie and Washington townships in Franklin County.

Full details can be found in this document provided by AEP Ohio

Krishna Temple

On February 26, 2016, ISKCON of Columbus, Ohio, USA, a Krishna religious organization, completed the purchase of 50 acres located at 3508 Walker Rd. just north of Davis Rd.

According to the buyer, the site will be used for a 500-person capacity Krishna temple and school to replace their current 300-person facility established near The Ohio State University campus in 1984. There are also plans for a farm-to-table restaurant and a vegetarian culinary institute that will teach vegetarian cooking to the public. For more information click here

Brown Township is under the jurisdiction of Franklin County Zoning, which permits religious uses under Rural District zoning 302.025 provided the use occupies a lot of not less than three acres and there is one acre or more per one hundred seats or similar accommodates in the main assembly area. A parsonage, or minister's residence is permitted on the same lot, provided there is adequate area for water supply and waste-water disposal if located on site.

The Walker Rd. property highlighted to the left is located outside of the Hilliard water and sewerage service area. This means the site will require an appropriately sized well and septic system. The site will also require a storm water management system that does not affect the local ecosystem or existing drainage.

Comprehensive Planning

This project is being managed by the Franklin County Economic Development & Planning Department. Brown Township residents, officials and Franklin County planners are developing a land use plan for unincorporated Brown Township.

Franklin County planners are meeting with a working committee composed of township residents, business owners, developers and others. This committee helps review public input and provides detailed feedback to the planners during the planning process.

Public meetings are scheduled to gather public input and comments about the direction and content of the plan. Meetings are publically advertised with road signs throughout the township and other announcements. Franklin County planners have set up a public website where township residents and other stakeholders can download plan documents, meeting materials and presentations.


Block Watch Organized

At the officers' request, the Trustees urge you to participate and help make this program more successful!  If you have any questions, please contact the Trustees
