State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) today announced the release of $200,000 in state funds to Kent State University for a building renovation project, and an additional $202,000 to DS Architects, a Kent-based firm selected to design safety improvements for juvenile correction facilities in both Cuyahoga and Stark Counties.

“By investing in our university and our local experts like the team at DS Architects, Northeast Ohio will continue to be a hub of learning and innovation,” said Rep. Clyde.

$200,000 in state funds will go toward the Bowman Hall improvements project at Kent State, which will begin the transformation of the 55-year-old classroom building by installing new lighting, an upgraded HVAC system and other improvements to make the building more energy efficient.

The State also released $202,000 to Kent-based DS Architects to design facility upgrades for the Indian River Juvenile Correctional Facility in Massillon and the Cuyahoga Hills Juvenile Correctional Facility in Highland Hills to be compliant with federal law.

Rep. Clyde represents the 75th Ohio House District, serving Kent, Ravenna, Streetsboro, and Central and Southern Portage County.
