Census numbers no surprise to Warren County residents

By Tiffany Teasley – bio | email

LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - For Mike Geygan the owner of a small business in warren county, the new census numbers are no surprise.

"That's part of the of the reason we located the business here, and were interested in buying the business here 20 years ago," Geygan said.

His printing business is ten times the size as it was when he bought it 20 years ago -- the longtime Warren County resident says he believes the desire for living in a rural area at a low cost is the driving force behind the growth.

" I think it revolves primarily around the cost of housing, and the schools, people wanting to move out into a more rural setting, more property, bigger houses, less cost," Geygan said.

According to the census numbers Warren County grew by 54,000 residents over the last 10 years, a 34 percent increase. Warren County Commissioner Tom Ariss says  the growth comes as a result of simply having room to grow.

"Openness, available ground to build, available ground of entrepreneurs to come in," Ariss said.

Ariss also credits the numbers to top-rated schools, safety and prime location along the interstates.

"people are concerned, where they move, what's going to be for their children, that's the primary thing, and public safety, along with the two inter states, 71 and 75, connecting to the Northeast, from Florida up to Michigan," Geygan said.

Warren County continues to be the second fastest growing county in the state of Ohio.
