COLUMBUS – State officials announced that the Village of West Lafayette will receive two grants. One, which will be used for public facility improvements, and the other, will be utilized for flood and drainage improvements. 

First, a $750,000 grant was approved for a Neighborhood Revitalization. The grant will be used to install a basketball hoop, improve parking, and to add playground equipment to the village park. That being said the grant will also be used to resurface 5,214 feet of road, pave a public parking lot, install 11 streetlights, and install an ADA ramp. 

2,225 people in the West Lafayette community will see the results of this grant and will enjoy the facilities improved because of the funding.

Additionally, Coshocton County will receive a $500,000 Critical Infrastructure grant to help provide flooding and drainage improvements to the Village of West Lafayette.

The storm sewer in the village has been deteriorating over the years and is in need of a major repair. The $500,000 grant will be used to replace 1,829 feet of linear storm sewer. 

“It is great to see state resources being allocated across our state to improve the facilities and reduce flooding in the Village of West Lafayette,” said Miller.
