COLUMBUS – State Representative Bob Young (R-Green) is pleased to announce that House Bill 687, the state’s $3.5 billion construction budget has passed the Ohio House.
“I was very happy to find out that some important community projects within my district would be receiving state funding,” said Young. “The capital improvements budget is dispersed throughout the state, and it means a lot to my constituents and me that some of that funding was diverted our way.”
This state capital budget not only supports important projects in our community, but major initiatives around the state, including aid to increase school safety. House Bill 687 is striving to rebuild our aging infrastructure and invest in Ohio’s future while supporting our economy.
Local community projects include:
- Willadale Trail-Boettler/Southgate Connector
- $275,000 to construct the 2 mile 10 foot wide connector trail
- Historic Tudor House in New Franklin
- $300,000 will be granted to add a sea wall, trail, outdoor lighting, a pedestrian pier with day-use docks
- Akron Area YMCA: Camp Y-Noah
- $1 million granted to establish a maintenance center, pool and shower facilities up to building codes, restroom facilities, and make water and sewer improvements
These projects have strong local support and will have a positive impact on our community added Representative Young.
