Ohio Lake Erie Commission meeting

The Ohio Lake Erie Commission (OLEC) will hold its quarterly meeting on June 3 at 10 a.m. at the Leonard Krieger Canalway Center in Cuyahoga Heights, Ohio.

During the meeting, the Rocky River Watershed Balanced Growth Plan will be presented by representatives from the Medina County Soil & Water Conservation District for endorsement by the Commission. This will be the second Balanced Growth Pilot Project to be brought before the Commission that demonstrates how Balanced Growth practices and planning approaches can improve watersheds and water quality throughout the Lake Erie basin. The Balanced Growth Program is a voluntary, community-based effort for promoting balanced growth and conservation development. Funding for the pilot projects has been provided by the Ohio Water Development Authority and administered by the OLEC.

The Cuyahoga RAP is scheduled to give a presentation about the Cuyahoga River and its 40 years of recovery. The RAP will announce the kick-off anniversary celebration at this meeting entitled, "2009 Year of the River."

Commission members are expected to approve the latest round of small grants and the applications and guidelines for the 2010 grants.

All meetings of the OLEC are open to the public and include a public comment period. Organizations and citizens are encouraged to attend this meeting and provide input on issues of concern.
