FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - 11/3/99
City Council Unanimously
Endorses and Supports Creation of the Refuge
Action Comes at Request of
Darby Creek Association
On Monday, November 1, the City Council of Dublin unanimously passed a resolution
endorsing the establishment of the Little Darby National Wildlife Refuge (see link to left
for text of the resolution).
The resolution is significant for these reasons:
- It represents the unanimous sentiment of Dublin City Council, the legislative body
elected to govern a fast-growing city not far from the Refuge. Parts of Dublin are
actually in Union County, where part of the Refuge will be located.
- It adds another city to the growing list of Refuge supporters (others include the City
of Columbus, Upper Arlington and Gahanna - see link to left for the text of the Gahanna
- In combination with the groups representing over 75,000 Ohioans who have already
expressed support for the wildlife refuge it demonstrates the wildlife refuge has
widespread support throughout Ohio.
- It shows the increasing effectiveness of Darby Creek Association's Little Darby National
Wildlife Refuge Public Support Task Force.
The action by Dublin City Council was the result of an initiative by DCA Secretary Paul
Dumouchelle, a resident of Dublin.
