The Chesterfield Heights and Grandy Village neighborhoods have been selected to participate in a transformational coastal improvement project known as the Ohio Creek Watershed Project. This $112 million project will reduce flooding, improve public spaces, and ensure these communities thrive for years to come.
The utility relocations and upgrades will re-route stormwater to two new pump stations. New sanitary sewer and potable water streams will also be installed in the Chesterfield neighborhood to improve water drainage and the aesthetics of the area. Grandy Village Park, which is located behind Chesterfield Academy, will be renovated into a modern play and learning area. A new fishing pier will be built near the park for the community.
