    State Rep. John Patterson announces money for local community development project

     

    COLUMBUS— State Rep. John Patterson (D-Jefferson) today announced state money for a local community development project in Ashtabula County. The City of Ashtabula will receive $38,000 for new playground equipment, benches and trash receptacles for Walnut Beach Park.

     

    “In order to have strong communities and a better quality of life for area residents, it is important to provide opportunities to access the natural world through green spaces like Walnut Beach Park,” said Rep. Paterson. “Investments like these also help stimulate the local economy and enhance tourism. I applaud local leaders that helped make this a reality.”

     

    The funding is made possible through the state’s NatureWorks Grant Program. The program provides up to 75 percent reimbursement assistance to local governments and related subdivisions, including townships, villages, cities, counties, park districts, joint recreation districts and conservancy districts. Ohio voters approved a 1993 bond issue that provides funding for the grant program.

     

    The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is accepting applications for the next round of NatureWorks grants until May 1, 2015. For more information on the program, visit http://parks.ohiodnr.gov/grants or call 614-265-6477.
