In addition, this project was awarded a grant from Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD) to install new permeable pavers vs. asphalt and concrete to reduce 500,000 gallons of rain, melted snow, etc., that will go directly into the ground rather than be treated in the regional sewer system. Approximately 69-to-70 cars will be permitted for parking purposes. The estimated cost of the new parish hall is at $3.3 Million. Drake Construction Co. is the general contractor for this project that began in March 2020.
