BRIDGEVILLE – Rep. Jason Ortitay (R-Washington/Allegheny) today announced $235,000 in Gaming Economic Development and Tourism Fund (GEDTF) Program grants have been awarded to assist with municipal improvements in Oakdale Borough and South Fayette Township.
The GEDTF program provides funding for single-year and multi-year projects that promote development in Allegheny County, including economic, infrastructure and community improvements, job training, public safety and public interest.
“Due to the pandemic, use of municipal services has increased as people have stayed closer to home,” Ortitay said. “I’m pleased to support both of these projects, which will enhance our community for years to come.”
Oakdale Borough plans to use its $135,000 grant to repave the existing public parking lot at the municipal building, convert a gravel lot into an asphalt parking lot, repair the sidewalk and concrete pads in front of the building, and complete upgrades to the building. South Fayette will use its $100,000 grant to make improvements to Morgan Park, including creating three flood-resilient youth baseball fields, adding an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible loop trail, upgrading to ADA accessible restroom facilities and establishing a riparian buffer along Millers Run.
The 46th Legislative District includes Collier and South Fayette townships and Bridgeville, Heidelberg, McDonald and Oakdale boroughs in Allegheny County. It also encompasses Canton, Cecil, Mt. Pleasant, Robinson and Smith townships and Burgettstown, McDonald and Midway boroughs in Washington County.
