Butler County Engineer Greg
Wilkens announces the release of the new 2012-13 Official Butler
County Transportation Map. An old-to-new theme pays tribute to
some of the County's earliest maps and historical references
while mixing with more recent and modern engineering projects
and cartography. The canvas texture on the front and back cover
is an actual reproduction of an old plat book, one of many at
the Engineer's Office.
The map is fully updated
with new road additions, annexations, incorporations, and other
interesting features. A reconfiguring of the Butler County MetroParks
system is also in place with convenient and helpful notations
about each park.
Our trademark user-friendly
booklet format continues with each Township and its major cities
and villages represented on individual pages for greater detail.
Enhanced colors and terrain features compliment the countywide
map in the booklet's center spread. As always, contact information
for township officials and county departments is included for
quick and easy reference on the inside back page.
The BCEO has reverted
to publishing a new map bi-annually after several years of issuing
a new map every year. "As growth and development have slowed,
subdivisions and new streets are being added at a much slower
pace so the maps don't become outdated quite as quickly,"
Wilkens said. "It is a wiser use of our limited tax dollars
to go back to updating the map every other year."
The new 2012-13 Official
Butler County Transportation Maps are available to the general
public at no charge and can be obtained at the Butler County
Engineer's Office, the Butler County Government Services Center,
and the Butler County Administrative Center. For additional information
about how to obtain a copy of the new map booklet, visit the
