At this point we’ve wrapped up the whitewater feasibility study for the Kent Whitewater project and we’ve submitted a grant application to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) to fund a significant portion of it. ODNR is reviewing the application and has indicated that they should probably be in a position to let us know the outcome of their review by the end of the summer. In the meantime we continue to get a lot of interest from residents, students and businesses about the project so I thought it was worth gathering all of the different articles, reports, drawings, etc. and putting them in one convenient web location — which is what we’ve now done.
You will find the link (Kent Whitewater Park) listed in the column in the right hand corner of the kent360 site. Here’s the direct link:
As we get more information on the project or the grant we’ll be sure to post it which will should make it easier to keep current with this exciting project. Enjoy!
