State Senator Joe Uecker (R–Miami Township) today announced the Ohio Controlling Board’s approval of $934,750 for construction of improvements to the East Fork State Park Beach House facility.

“East Fork State Park is an important place in this community that many people benefit from,” said Uecker. “These funds will ensure that the park’s beach house facility is rebuilt in a manner to prevent damage from future flooding while also providing park visitors with clean, state of the art facilities.”

The new beach house will replace the existing facility which has suffered damages from flooding. The new facility will be elevated above the floodplain to avoid future damages from flooding and will also house restrooms, changing areas and showers for beach users.
