North Baltimore receives $452,000 in grant money for multiple projects

NORTH BALTIMORE, OH (WTOL) - A small Wood County community will get some much need improvement projects completed with the help of state funding.

The Village of North Baltimore announced they have received a $452,000 Neighborhood Revitalization gr ant from the state.

The Village Administrator said that they have been working towards this gr ant money since January.

The influx in funding will be pooled with other gr ant resources and will be able to get four projects fully funded.

Two village streets, Walnut and Northview, will be paved.

Downtown, the old Whistle Stop parking lot will finally be paved and landscaped.

At the village Memorial Park,  Shelter House 1 will receive a new roof and windows, along with improved parking at the park.

These are things that mayor Janet Goldner said has been a priority, but weren't able to be funded through conventional means.

"And we've been able to complete projects that we would never be able to complete with our own general fund. Because, you know, money is tight and everyone's general fund is tight. So it is just very fortunate for us," said Goldner.

So, now with the funding in place for these multiple projects, the Village of North Baltimore will begin working with the Wood County Regional Planning Commission to get the ball rolling.
