Conneaut Lake Revitalization Project Nearly Complete
A $4 million revitalization project in Conneaut Lake is nearly done.
The two part project included extensive improvements to the main business district along Route 322.
Work ranged from new sidewalks to decorative lighting and landscaping.
The only major work remaining is moving utility lines and removing poles.
The second part of the project was a total makeover of nearby Fireman's Beach, including a new paved parking lot, boat docks and a new sidewalk near the water linking the beach with the downtown.
Bill Eldridge, Chairman of the Conneaut Lake Community Development Committee said, "We are seeing an uptick in traffic. People coming here walking through the downtown then continuing on down that sidewalk linking it to Fireman's Beach. that is exactly what we had in mind. We are very happy."
It took four years to raise the money for the project.
The funding is a combination of local and state grants and donations.
