ODNR to Hold Open House on Proposed Boat Ramp at Darr-Root Fishing Access

Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) will hold an informational open house for the proposed boat access on the Sandusky River on Tuesday, December 12, 2017, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The open house format allows for one-on-one interaction with department representatives.

The open house will be held at the Fremont City Hall Council Chambers, 323 South Front Street, Fremont, 43420. Representatives from ODNR Division of Wildlife will be available to discuss the project and answer questions and concerns with attendees.

The ODNR Division of Wildlife purchased the property several years ago with the intention of building a ramp that would provide access for the fishing and boating constituency and fill a much-needed gap for public water access on the river.

The ODNR Division of Engineering and a private engineering firm have designed the ramp and developed a preliminary site plan. The ramp was designed based on the expected use and as proposed will have a one lane ramp, 22 vehicle/trailer parking spots, and 20 vehicle only parking spots. The ramp was designed to minimize impacts to the adjacent wetlands.

ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all. Visit the ODNR website at ohiodnr.gov.
