Here is a conceptual rendering of the new Primate Forest
CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cuyahoga County Council unanimously approved $11 million in American Rescue Plan Act funding for dozens of projects Tuesday.
Some of the 33 approved projects include $2 million to support the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo’s construction of its Primate Forest, $1 million for a project supporting Hispanic culture in the Clark-Fulton neighborhood, a new playground in Beachwood and more.
The money will come from the $66 million in ARPA community grant funding the county has set aside to split evenly among the county’s 11 districts. The community grant funds have been dubbed “slush funds” by critics who say the funding model gives individual councilmembers too much say over how money is spent.
Council spent the $11 million in COVID stimulus money alongside an additional $9 million in newly introduced ARPA projects that still must go to committee before receiving a vote.
Here is a full list of projects that were approved Tuesday:
