STRONGSVILLE, OH - The city of Strongsville has plans to spend $3 million on a new community space that will include an interactive fountain with a splash pad, a new playground, a pavilion, walking paths, public green space and handicapped accessible restrooms. Mayor Thomas Perciak told WTAM news “The Strongsville Town Center Enhancement & Walkability Initiative” will be built on more than 80 acres of land just west of the Walter F. Ehrnfelt Recreation and Senior Center.
Perciak says the city has hired the firm of Brandstetter Carroll Inc. as the lead designer and consultant for the project and he hopes to get started this year. Funding for the project is expected to come from grants, local businesses, government agencies including Cuyahoga County and the State of Ohio.
The price of the interactive found and splash pad could cost as much as $800,000, the playground $600,000, the pavilion $500,000, the new restrooms nearly $500,000 and the green space more than $300,000. A new roundabout would bring the total price tag to an estimated $3 million.
