President Hugh Sherman also was in attendance and spoke highly of CBP’s partnership with Buckeye Hills Regional Council.

“So for me, it’s exciting to see these ideas starting to come to fruition into one over-arching strategy. This is a unique opportunity to truly develop and preserve the buildings and scenic beauty of the Ridges through this partnership with the Community Building Partners and Buckeye Hills,” Sherman said in an OU press release.
