Chesapeake Community Center upgrading its rec facilities

CHESAPEAKE — The Chesapeake Community Center will soon be sporting some upgrades.

The center was allocated $30,000 by the Ironton-Lawrence Community Action Organization from a $180,000 grant from the state of Ohio.

The money will go to make improvements to recreational facilities, which will include eight park benches, two sets of bleachers, a bike rack, a handicapped accessible picnic table, a large outdoor grill and 12 planter boxes for community gardens, Cindy Anderson, the community development director of the CAO, said.

Work on the project is under way and is expected to be completed by Dec. 31.
