COLUMBUS – State Representative Kyle Koehler (R-Springfield) today announced the allocation of $367,100 to the city of New Carlisle to assist with flood and drainage improvement projects. The funds come from the Development Services Agency (DSA), who distributed grants totaling more than $5 million to support 11 projects under the Community Development Critical Infrastructure Program throughout Ohio.
“It’s encouraging to see funds from the state’s Community Development Critical Infrastructure Program be assigned to our very own city of New Carlisle for projects that will bring enhanced water drainage systems and boost flood prevention services in the 79th House District,” said Koehler.
The New Carlisle flood and drainage improvement projects includes replacing or installing the following:
- 2,232 linear feet of curb
- 1,116 linear feet of asphalt
- 75 feet of sewer line
- Two curb ramps
- Three dry wells
- Five catch basins
According to DSA, the project in New Carlisle will benefit 120 people.
The Community Development Critical Infrastructure Program is a program under the DSA’s Community Development Program. Projects within the Critical Infrastructure Program are designed to assist applicant communities with high-priority, single-component projects, such as roads, flood and drainage and other public infrastructure improvements with a high community-wide impact. This round of grant allocations under the program are to be used for improvements in flood and drainage, water and sewer facilities as well as bridge projects.
