Rep. Rezabek Announces Introduction Of Bill To Fund Community Improvement Projects
SB 310 invests in Ohio's communities, encourages economic development

State Representative Jeffery Rezabek (R-Clayton) today announced that a bill to fund community improvement projects was introduced in the state legislature.

Senate Bill 310, also known as the capital budget bill, invests a total of nearly $2.6 billion in funding across Ohio for priorities like infrastructure, workforce development and the arts. The most significant portion of the funding goes toward supporting repairs and renovations at primary and secondary education facilities through the Ohio School Facilities Commission.

A significant part of the funding goes toward higher education needs, such as for facility maintenance and learning programs.

The capital budget’s investments are consistent with the legislature’s commitment of fiscal responsibility and a stronger, more competitive economic climate.

The original version of the bill includes a $250,000 appropriation for the Trotwood Community Center. Currently, the community center has been taken out of service due to structural damage and disrepair. It serves the entire Trotwood community, including youth and senior citizens. The appropriation would go towards a roof replacement, HVAC unit repair, parking lot resurfacing, window replacement, and other structural renovations.

“I am excited about the potential of this funding being brought to our community that so desperately needs it. I will continue to advocate on behalf of the City of Trotwood in Columbus and provide a voice for them that they have been lacking,” Rep. Rezabek said. “I look forward to working with Mayor McDonald, her staff, and the city council to promote this area and help it develop into something we all believe it can be.”

The capital budget is the product of close collaboration between Governor John Kasich, state agencies, presidents of Ohio’s colleges and universities, local leaders, legislative members and leaders, members of the economic development community, and others within Ohio’s communities.
