Clean Ohio funds approved for Cornerstone Park

Post Date:07/19/2019 8:28 AM
The City of Centerville is pleased to announce the Ohio Public Works Commission has recommended $1M in Clean Ohio grant funding for a community park at Cornerstone. 

The park will be a key component of the Cornerstone development, which has been a magnet for many first-in-region retail and restaurant interest near I-675 and Feedwire Road in Centerville.

The City sought grant funding to conserve land in the 11-acre passive area of the park. It will include walking trails and greenspace, preserve a headwater stream and reduce or eliminate invasive plants.

Ultimately, an active area of the park will be developed as well to complement the surrounding commercial properties. The price to acquire the property is $1,472,108. Cornerstone Developers, LLC has agreed to donate the portion of the park not covered by grant funds. 

“The park at Cornerstone represents a unique opportunity for intentional green space within an urban development. Grant funding is the first major step in achieving our overall goal of incorporating a beautiful piece of parkland to complement the overall Cornerstone project,” said Centerville City Manager Wayne Davis.

The City and the Ohio Public Works Commission will now engage in discussion to reach a project agreement.
