State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) today announced $230,000 in state funding for the Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) facility improvement project at the Rootstown campus.


“Weatherproofing our buildings by improving insulation and repairing decades-old rooftop damage will allow NEOMED’s facilities to last well into the future,” said Rep. Clyde. “By making the necessary investments in infrastructure now, we can save money in the long-run, while also ensuring our students are working in facilities that are learning-ready.”


Older buildings on NEOMED’s campus need extensive waterproofing and insulation on existing roofs, some of which have begun to develop leaks. Funding will also be used to replace doors in the storage area that have started to decompose. New framing and doors will add insulation and improve energy efficiency.


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