State Construction Plan to Spend Millions in Miami Valley
COLUMBUS Gov. John R. Kasich today ceremonially signed Ohios 2014 Capital Budget (H.B. 497) which provides $2.4 billion for maintenance, renovation and construction at public facilities statewide, including key public projects in the Dayton area.
Recommendations for funding in this years plan came from a variety of sources, including the Dayton Development Coalition. Funding recommendations for Ohios museums, performing arts facilities and other cultural venues were also received from leaders of Ohios arts community.
The Kasich administration says that once it's fully enacted, Ohios proposed new public construction budget will create about 31,000 new jobs over the next several years from the $2.386 billion it injects into needed repairs, maintenance and construction of publicly owned buildings and other infrastructure at the state and local level.
Weve managed our money well and its time that we catch up on some needed maintenance and construction of public facilities, including at the local level. Im glad its happening and Im glad that so many of these requests were developed independently by local communities based on their own needs and priorities, Kasich said.
We appreciate Governor Kasich's commitment to a local process to identify key economic development projects for the Dayton region, said Jeff Hoagland, president and CEO of the Dayton Development Coalition. Working with our legislative delegation, community leaders and business leaders has led to a capital bill that helps address many of our most pressing needs. These projects will have a job creating impact on our economy and improve the Montgomery Valley's quality of life.
The capital budget includes:
$675 million for local school construction, including repairs, renovations and new primary and secondary education facilities;
$454.5 million for Ohios 37 public colleges and universities;
$369 million for local infrastructure projects administered by the Ohio Public Works Commission, including upgrades, replacement and new construction of local roads and bridges, storm and sanitary sewers, water lines and other vital infrastructure;
$100 million for the Clean Ohio program to improve outdoor recreational opportunities and fund the preservation of open spaces and farmlands;
$574.3 million for maintenance and renovations at state-owned facilities including Ohio State Parks, state prisons, mental health facilities and other public facilities.
