Canfield Township Trustees approved an amendment to the Windsor House JEDD (Joint Economic Development District) at the first meeting of 2020. The amendment approves adding a section of land to the east of the present JEDD property.

Trustees held a public hearing on the issue back on Dec. 10. There was no opposition to it and the public hearing was set for Jan. 14, prior to the regular meeting.

The public hearing was held prior to the meeting and with no opposition, the trustees approved the amendment to the existing JEDD.

The land being added is a section that runs from the present Windsor House Jedd heading east to the bike trail. While the plans for what would be constructed there was no known, Trustee Marie Cartwright said it should fit in with existing structures.

"The plans are to keep with the existing facility," she said.

The approval will be sent to Canfield City Council who will have to also approve the amendment.

On a different matter, the township was advised of the approval of a $199,300 TAP (Transportation Alternatives Program) grant that can be combined with the township's ODNR (Ohio Department of Natural Resources) grant for $195,867 to help build the bikeway spur to Township Park on Herbert Road.

Chairman Brian Governor said the township is also waiting to hear about grants for the Pebble Beach Project that would help resolve issues that include runoff impacting three homes. The project is expected to run around $655,530.

"We have a couple of sinkholes in that area now," Cartwright said.

The other project is a major upgrade to Summit Road. Cartwright said when the county turned the road over to the township, it wasn't legal width.

"We are trying to find funding to widen the road, install a walk and a bike trail (or lane) as well," Cartwright said.

The Summit Road project is estimated at $1,668,320.

In other action:

Governor was chosen as board chair for 2020 and Joe Paloski as vice chair. Cartwright was reappointed to serve as township representative to the Cardinal Joint Fire District Board.

Trustees discussed with no action taken on the following topics: Upgrades to the township recycling site on Messerly Road, the need for more security cameras at township park, and updates regarding the Colonial Motel.

A budget hearing was set for 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 29, and the next regular meeting was set for Jan. 28 at 7 p.m.
