The City of Ozark has been working diligently to find ways to better our community and provide a more pedestrian friendly environment. The City has applied for federal funding to complete bike and pedestrian walk projects around the City. There was a total of $2.5 million in federal funding available and a total of 15 projects were selected by the Ozarks Transportation Organization to receive funding. The City of Ozark submitted 4 projects which we were honored to have them all selected for funding. The Ozarks Transportation Organization board approved on February 28th for Ozark to receive $813,089 of federal funding to add with our 20% local match for a total of the four projects cost of $1,016,361. The City will meet its 20% match by using funds from the 3/8 cent Transportation Sales Tax passed by voters in April 2017.
These projects will help provide safer pedestrian routes to our local schools, communities and businesses. The Governor and the Federal Highway commission approved these projects and the City of Ozark received the official notice on April 3rd.
