Bartlett Maritime is still working on their project to build a naval repair center in the Village. It would be used to repair and refurbish naval ships and submarine parts which will be disassembled at a Lorain, Ohio shipyard and other facilities and sent to Lordstown. While there are still a lot of issues to be resolved, it does look promising. More on this as it develops.
The Village is currently prioritizing paving projects. Hallock-Young Road from Tod Avenue to Bailey Road is scheduled to be paved soon with grant monies covering 100% of the estimated $1.7 million cost.

Minutes of Village council meeting are posted on our website, www.lordstown.com, after they are approved by council at the next regularly scheduled council meeting. Our website is now being updated to better serve residents.
