BATH TWP.: Trustees approved Monday the filing of an application for an Akron Metropolitan Area Transportation Study Connecting Communities Planning Grant. The grant, which is co-sponsored with Copley Township, would be to fund a study titled “Montrose: North/South and East/ West.”
If approved, the grant would fund a study to develop a comprehensive plan for recommendations in the Montrose area to improve: pedestrian/bicycle access; transit and vehicle access to retail; parking access; corridor aesthetics and signage; as well as sustainability and environmental impact, including storm water problems.
According to the resolution, AMATS has $100,000 available for no more than two projects in the Connecting Communities Planning Grant, which is designed to provide more transportation choices, enhance economic competitiveness, support existing communities and add value to communities and neighborhoods.
While not a co-sponsor, the City of Fairlawn will include a letter in support of the grant, explained interim Bath Administrator Bill Snow.
