MOUNT VERNON — The Ohio Department of Natural Resources recently awarded a Clean Ohio Trails grant in the amount of $383,500 to the Knox County Board of Commissioners to continue development of the Heart of Ohio Trail near Mount Liberty.
The project involves installation of asphalt pavement, traffic control, erosion and drainage control and associated design. Knox County Park District staff, with assistance from ADR & Associates, drafted the grant application on behalf of the county commissioners. No county general revenue funds are necessary for the project, since Knox County Park District levy proceeds will be used for the 25 percent local match requirement for the grant.
