PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING
GREAT NEWS FOR THE VILLAGE OF MILAN
The Village was informed through Governor DeWine’s announcement that we were successful in receiving a grant in the amount of $38,983.00 for our North Edison Drive Water Main Replacement. This funding was made available through the Department of Development, Water and Wastewater infrastructure Grant Program. This project will replace a current water line that has been prone to slipping down a hillside and is made from substandard pipe. The Village has experienced water leaks from this line and plans to replace this water main with polyvinyl line and shore up the hillside. There are a total of 22 houses that are served by this line, along with the Village of Milan Wastewater Treatment Facility. Our plan is to begin construction on this project in the spring of 2022.
We would like to thank all the Village of Milan Employees who assisted in making this grant successful for our community!

ARBOR DAY FOUNDATION NAMES MILAN TREE CITY USA FOR THE 19TH CONSECUTIVE YEAR
On Friday April 29, 2022, the Village of Milan held an Arbor Day Tree Planting Ceremony. Mayor Pamela Crosby was assisted by the Village of Milan Street and Water Department and Village residents Mike and Lori Lewis in planting an October Glory Maple on South Main Street. Mayor Crosby read an Arbor Day Proclamation at a recent Council Meeting on April 27, 2022. Pictured left to right Lori Lewis, Mike Lewis and Mayor Pamela Crosby.
Milan, OH, was named a 2021 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management.
Milan achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program's four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.
"Tree City USA communities see the impact an urban forest has in a community first hand," said Dan Lambe, president of the Arbor Day Foundation. "Additionally, recognition brings residents together and creates a sense of community pride, whether it's through volunteer engagement or public education."
Trees provide multiple benefits to a community when properly planted and maintained. They help to improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.
More information on the program is available at arborday.org/TreeCityUSA.
About the Arbor Day Foundation: The Arbor Day Foundation is a million member nonprofit conservation and education organization with the mission to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. More information is available at arborday.org.
