SPRINGFIELD, OH (Sept. 28, 2018) – A state grant will be used to pave two township roads and promote fair housing in Clark County next year.
The Board of Clark County Commissioners approved a federal Community Development Block Grant in the amount of $232,000 at Wednesday’s meeting.
The money will be used to make street and drainage improvements on Iroquois Street in Springfield Twp. and Beach Drive in Donnelsville.
About a 1/5th of a mile will be paved on Iroquois Street from Sunnyland Blvd. to Seminole Ave, which includes three new catch basins and new curbs. About 1/8th of a mile of Beach Drive will be repaved, including several drainage improvements.
“The grant is crucial to making repairs on roadways that otherwise wouldn’t have been paved without these funds,” said Clark County Community and Economic Development Director Tom Hale.
The money will also be used to educate residents about fair housing rights and responsibilities.
The county will soon begin bidding out the project and construction is expected to begin next summer.
