$627M in Clean Ohio-financed projects viewable in online map

The 1,300 projects awarded financing through the Clean Ohio Fund now can be viewed in an online map tool.

The Clean Ohio Fund Interactive Map, produced by the Ohio Department of Development, provides the location and project information for $627 million worth of state investment since the creation of the bond program nearly 11 years ago.

Projects can be filtered by county, city and zip code, and can be filtered by program type: Clean Ohio Assistance Fund, Clean Ohio Revitalization Fund, Clean Ohio Agricultural Easement Purchase Program, Clean Ohio Green Space Conservation Program, and Clean Ohio Trails Fund.

Map data is current through February 1.

The Clean Ohio Fund was created in 2000 following voter approval of a $400 million bond issue.

In November 2008, voters in all 88 Ohio counties approved Issue 2, authorizing the state to issue more than $400 million in bonds to continue the program as part of Governor Ted Strickland's $1.57 billion Ohio Bipartisan Job Stimulus Plan.
