OKI – How Do We Grow From Here? 

2023 Public Questionnaire

Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI) is a council of local governments, business organizations and community groups committed to developing collaborative strategies to improve the quality of life and the economic vitality of the region.

OKI has a questionnaire on their website regarding transportation uses, needs and wants.  Commissioner Rick Probst sits on their board and would like to have a good representation of responses from Dearborn County.  It is an opportunity for Dearborn County residents to tell the federal government thru OKI what is important in Dearborn County.   The more who participate, the louder our voice, the greater our potential to receive support.   It is for OKI residents and is 25 mostly multiple choice questions about YOUR transportation uses, needs and wants and takes less than 10 minutes to complete.

Participation is very important to Dearborn County as it sets the stage for potential FEDERAL funds to support transportation projects in our towns, cities and county.

Please take a moment to go to and once on their website the questionnaire can be located to the right by clicking on “Take our Regional Planning Survey”.  The survey closes later this month, around the 28th so please do this soon.

Thank you for your help!
