The Warren County Port Authority (\VCPA) closed its tenth bond fund transaction on Thursday, June 13, 2019. The newly created Ohio Communities Accelerator Fund (OCAF) issued $390,000 of PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) bonds to partner with the City of Middletown, the Butler County Port Authority and the Community Building Institute to finance improvements for the Robert “Sonny” Hill Community Center. The anticipated upgrades to the facility will include improvements to indoor/outdoor lighting, new HVAC systems/controls and roof modernization. These improvements to the Robert “Sonny” Hill Community Center will enhance the mission to provide a safe and fun environment for people to engage in recreational activities, learn about educational opportunities and stay connected with the Middletown community.
