Four Warren County City Projects Included in House Appropriations Committee's Approval


WARREN COUNTY OHIO --Congressman Greg Landsman announced on Monday, he has secured the inclusion of nearly $14.5 million for 15 local projects in the federal government funding bills that Congress passes annually. Four of the 15 projects approved are in cities that help make up Warren County: 

  • City of Franklin – 12” Water Line Connection Replacement
    • Funding Included: $959,752
  • City of South Lebanon – Community Center Improvement
    • Funding Included: $812,797
  • City of Springboro – S.R. 741 / Lytle Five Points Intersection Reconstruction
    • Funding Included: $850,000
  • City of Loveland – Cherokee Drive Water Main Replacement
    • Funding Included: $745,000

In April, after receiving more than 50 project applications from across Southwest Ohio, Landsman submitted 15 projects to the House Appropriations Committee for the committee to review. In a press release on Monday from the congressman's office, "The House Appropriations Committee has approved all 15 Landsman’s projects to be included in the appropriations bills."

While the committee has approved all 15 projects, the House and Senate still must pass these bills with these projects in them. Once passed, they must be signed into law by the president before Community Project Funding is distributed.

“Southwest Ohio has incredible leadership and very compelling projects,” said Congressman Landsman. “We’ve been working closely with our partners to bring our tax dollars back home to support their work. From cleaner drinking water and safer streets to better housing and good-paying jobs – this $14.5 million will make life better for children and families across Southwest Ohio.”
