Logan County Commissioners John Bayliss, Tony Core, and Dustin Wickersham applied for and received $500,000 in competitive Neighborhood Revitalization Grant funds through the Ohio Department of Development - Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program.

These funds were awarded for the purpose of assisting with the construction of Flood and Drainage Improvements, Park and Recreation Improvements, Water Facilities Improvements, and Sidewalk Improvements in Quincy.

The village had a qualifying percentage of low-to-moderate income households based on 2010 US Census data, which allowed them to receive these grant funds.

Quincy will contribute a total of $10,000 to the Neighborhood Revitalization Program’s projects construction. The county will also contribute $29,500 of CDBG Allocation funds. $50,000 of the Neighborhood Revitalization Grant will be utilized for general administration. Here is the breakdown of the funded grant activities:

Flood and Drainage Improvements: The Flood and Drainage Improvements project includes the installation of 1,750 linear feet of storm sewer and six (6) catch basins to correct flooding issues throughout the village. The activity is estimated to total $289,500.

Park and Recreation Improvements: Projects at Quincy’s Village Park include the replacement of three pieces of playground equipment, the repaving of the basketball court, and an extension of the existing walking path by approximately 100 linear feet. As proposed, the activity is estimated to total $86,600.

Water Facilities Improvements: The Water Facilities Improvements project consists of the replacement of the water valve at the intersection of Mill Street and Miami Street. As proposed, the activity is estimated to total $6,200.

Sidewalk Improvements: The Sidewalk Improvements project includes the installation of 3,599 linear feet of sidewalk throughout the village. As proposed, the activity is estimated to total $107,200.

The Logan County Commissioners also applied for $300,000 of competitive Critical Infrastructure Grant funds and $24,100 of allocation funds from the Ohio Department of Development - Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program for Water Facilities Improvements.
