Rep. Miller Announces $225,000 For Sheffield Lake Trail
Says new trail to increase connectivity for area residents
 
 

COLUMBUS— State Rep. Joe Miller (D-Amherst) announced today that the City of Sheffield Lake, Ohio has been awarded a $225,000 grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR) Clean Ohio Trails Fund to construct Lincoln Trail.


“Lincoln Trail is a significant step towards increasing connectivity in our region,” said Rep. Miller. “This generous state grant will create new opportunities for residents to stay active and enjoy the outdoors.”


The grant’s purpose is to create a nearly mile-long path that links Lorain County Metro Parks’ Sheffield Reservation to Lake Road. Additionally, the Clean Ohio Trail Funds will help design, engineer, and construct the path. The city will also contribute funding to complete the project.


The Clean Ohio Trails Fund is part of the ODNR’s Clean Ohio Fund, which aims to support, improve, and link the state’s natural and urban places. Over the years, the Fund has offered 14 rounds of grants to improve local hiking, biking, and walking trails around the state.


Sheffield Lake is one of 20 grant recipients during this round of funding.
