COLUMBUS—State Senator Steve Wilson (R-Maineville) announced millions of dollars for key Capital Budget projects across Senate District 7. This is the second phase of the process following last week’s announcement of a $350 million investment by the Senate in Ohio communities from the One-Time Strategic Community Investment Fund.

"I am so pleased we were able to get so many worthwhile projects funded," said Senator Wilson. "This financing will enhance the quality of life in our communities for generations to come."

Some of the projects funded in Senator Wilson's district include:

Lindner Center of Hope $1,000,000
Kings Mills Multi-Use Pathway Project $465,000 
Harmon Museum & Armstrong Center Modernization $454,000 
Springboro North Park Upgrades $300,000

LADD (Living Arrangement for the Developmentally Disabled) Forever Home $720,000

CROWN Ohio River Trail Safety Improvements $140,000

The Capital Budget also includes $600 million for new construction and facility upgrades at Ohio's public schools and $575 million for local infrastructure projects such as roads and water and sewer projects.

The legislature generally approves a capital budget every two years, funding needed improvements to public services and facilities across the state, including schools, infrastructure, and mental health and addiction facilities.

The House and Senate introduced similar legislation today that will be vetted in both chambers. See a full list of capital budget projects by clicking here, and follow On the Record to keep updated on this year’s capital budget process.
