Construction of the new PCBDD facility at 601 Senior Drive, New Lexington is underway! 

Below are some of the advantages of the new building, as well as photos from the construction site. New photos will be added as the building takes shape, so we invite you to check back periodically to follow its progress.

  • All programs and services, currently spread across three different locations, will be consolidated to one building.
  • Down-sizing to one new, efficient building is estimated to decrease building costs by approximately $140,000 per year.
  • Reduced building costs will make additional resources available to provide services and supports.

If you would like more information about the new facility, please contact Superintendent, David Couch by phone at 740-342-3542 or by email at

Continued Response to COVID-19 and

Updated Communication for Plans of Action

June 29, 2020

Since March 16th, the staff at the Perry County Board of Developmental Disabilities have been working remotely while continuing to provide quality services and supports virtually. Each week, the Senior Leadership Team assesses and evaluates the plans and protocols that would allow us to return to our traditional workspace. At this time, we feel it is best to continue working remotely.

You may see staff intermittently going in and out of our buildings to replenish supplies, process paperwork, or attend a meeting. You may see summer camp operating on a much smaller scale with less than 10 staff and campers attending on a given day. You may see our respite staff and home visitors connecting with children and families outside in their back yard. We are making some adjustments while following our safety plans and protocols, but overall, we continue to limit in-person connections. While things remain uncertain, we assure you our staff continue to do a great job and are adjusting in extraordinary ways so they can to stay connected with you!

We continue taking responsible and reasonable steps to protect the people we support, their families, and our staff. If at any time you have questions or concerns, please feel free to connect with me directly at 740-684-0624 or by email at Our staff directory and contact information can be found by accessing our website at To report someone with a disability being abused or neglected, please call 740-605-7746.
