Edgerton, other county projects get state funding

Several Williams County projects will receive a boost from the state budget bill passed Friday and signed by Gov. Mike DeWine.

The grant funding comes from the state’s capital budget.

Edgerton will be the biggest beneficiary of the funding, as it will receive $425,000 for a new community center at Miller Park.

The proposed project will include construction of a 7,800 square foot space, complete with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant restrooms, a full-service kitchen, exterior deck and patio overlooking the pond, energy efficient lighting and underground utilities. Additionally, ADA pedestrian sidewalks and entryway will be installed to ensure accessibility for all members of the community.

The total investment for the project is estimated to be around $925,000, making it a significant addition to the community. The community center project will provide a meeting place for the community, as well as opportunities for sports activities and a community stage where citizens and visitors can come together to enjoy the outdoors.

“We are honored and grateful for the unwavering support of Rep. Jim Hoops (R-Napoleon) and Sen. Rob McColley (R-Napoleon), as well as the generous investment from the State of Ohio capital budget, toward the development of this community center in Edgerton,” said Village Administrator Dawn Fitzcharles.

“We would also like to extend our sincere appreciation to the Edgerton Park Board for its instrumental role in bringing this vision to life,” Fitzcharles said. “Together, we are building a stronger and more vibrant community, and we are grateful for the opportunity to do so.”

“This is a great day in Edgerton as God’s Hand continues to bless our community,” said Mayor Robert Day. “The original shelter house from the early 1970s, built and donated by the Edgerton Rotary Club, has served this community well for over 50 years.”

He added village residents have voiced their desire for a new and improved building for gatherings, receptions and several other indoor uses, complete with air conditioning.

“This new building will be approximately two and half times larger, equipped to hold many different event options and be a destination for those in and around our area,” the mayor added.

Other projects in Williams County approved for state funding include:

Village of Pioneer community splash pad — $200,000.

  • Wabash Cannonball Trail: Design engineering — $153,500.

  • Wabash Park inclusive playground — $55,000.

  • George Bible Park Aeration System — $20,000.

  • Installation of elevator to North Annex building in Williams County — $187,076.

  • Wabash Cannonball Trail: Design engineering — $153,500.

“These transformative projects are investments that will have a lasting impact for the community in the 1st Senate District for decades to come,” McColley said. “We can expect to see meaningful improvements in our region in a variety of areas including education, public safety, outdoor recreation, and cultural enhancement.”
