Today, state Senator Kenny Yuko (D-Richmond Heights) commended the Ohio Senate’s passage of House Bill 687, the state Capital Budget, which appropriates over $28 million for economic development projects in Ohio’s 25th Senate District, which includes Cuyahoga and Lake counties.
“We’ve made great progress toward helping workers and families recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, and the projects we’re funding today will continue to support our economy and the people of Northeast Ohio,” Yuko said. “While we couldn’t support every deserving project, I’m pleased that we could invest in many projects that will have a meaningful impact on our region and our state.”
Local projects in the bill include:
• $1,000,000 for Euclid Waterfront Construction, Phase III
• $50,000 for Greenwood Farm Community Park Gazebo, Richmond Heights
• $750,000 for University Hospitals Rainbow Babies Perrico Health Center, Willoughby
• $300,000 for Chagrin River Trail Acquisition, Willoughby
• $350,000 for Fairport Harbor Marina Boat Launch Restoration
• $100,000 for Kol Israel Foundation Holocaust Memorial, Bedford Heights
• $200,000 for Painesville Amphitheater Project
The Capital Budget includes $3.51 billion in funding for capital improvement projects throughout Ohio. It also provides roughly $1.2 billion to support the Intel semiconductor project. The bill now heads to Governor DeWine for his signature.
