Mahoning County commissioners on Thursday released a list of projects they have approved for the $512,000 in Ohio Community Development Block Grant funds they have been allotted for 2007. The projects are likely to be funded and approved, said Bill Malson, of MS Consultants.

Beaver Township: A 3,184-foot street resurfacing project for Ferncliff Avenue and Russell Avenue on the east side of Woodworth — $60,000; additional $5,600 from the township.

Smith Township: Installation of a 1,500-foot water line on Bandy Road, completing a "loop" connection for the Maple Ridge water system — $103,000; additional $12,000 from the township.

Coitsville Township: Installation of a 576-foot water line on McCartney Road near the township hall — $54,000; additional $3,700 from Aqua Ohio, a water supplier.

Austintown Township: Build a retention pond south of Norquest Boulevard on township-owned property and replace driveway culverts and catch basins along Kimberly Avenue — $73,000; additional $32,200 from the township.

Craig Beach: Build 1,380 feet of new sidewalks on the west side of Grandview Avenue from Triumph Avenue to Lundy's Lane — $47,000; additional $4,500 from the village.

Countywide: Provide fair housing services — $10,000.

Countywide: Grant administration totaling 15 percent of the total CDBG allocation — $76,500.

Campbell is also applying for a competitive grant to pay for additional demolition, plus street, sidewalk, park and drainage improvements near Kirwan Homes. Its approval is not as certain as the projects above — $300,000; additional $12,000 from the city.
