The 2022 Ohio Capital Bill, passed by overwhelming margins in both the Ohio House and Senate, means that several proposed Delaware County projects are receiving funding.

The measure includes the state’s two year $3.5 billion construction budget that includes statewide initiatives, business and industry incentives, and local projects advanced by lawmakers.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine said of the bill, “I thank the General Assembly for their partnership in supporting these important projects across Ohio which will make a tremendous impact and continue job growth in our state. House Bill 687 also creates a significant and historic investment into our state parks, which are true gems which can be enjoyed by all Ohioans and those who support our tourism industry.”

Over $3 million is headed to Delaware County for locally submitted capital investments. Funded project recipients include:

  • Columbus Zoo – $1,400,000
  • Project Playground Galena – $350,000
  • Edge Adventure Park – $300,000
  • Concord Township Park Renovation – $172,000
  • Havener Park Improvements – $75,000
  • The Barn at Stratford – $500,000
  • Orange Township Veterans Memorial – $400,000
  • Delaware Arts Castle Masonry Repairs – $100,000
  • Strand Theatre – $100,000

Total Delaware County – $3,397,000
