More aid from Ohio’s State Controlling Board is on the way to the Camp Perry Joint Training Center as it aims to complete a major renovation project.

This week, the board approved the release of $270,685 for Camp Perry’s historical lighting renovation project, according to a news release from State Rep. D.J. Swearengin, R-Huron.

The release said the funding will allow for the complete replacement of the remaining old lighting at the site, which dates back to the early 1940s, with more energy-efficient lighting, as well as fix various remaining structural issues.

“This will help to preserve the historic site for people to enjoy all it has to offer for years to come,” Swearengin said.

New construction for the project will be “architecturally consistent” with the existing fixtures, which were originally installed when Camp Perry was built in 1942.
