The Wood County Board of Health has approved nearly $20,000 in architectural services for an upcoming clinic renovation and expansion.
Board members voted unanimously Thursday to approve an $8,500 contract with Poggemeyer Design Group for professional architectural services for renovations to the clinic area, and a further $11,000 contract with Poggemeyer for architectural services concerning the expansion of the clinic.
Plans for the restructured clinic include a redesigned flow through the area and four new exam rooms, allowing more patients to be treated.
The renovation is to be funded by part of a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration, which the health district received last year. The Wood County Community Health and Wellness Center is expected to increase clients and services as part of the $1.4 million grant, which allows for up to $100,000 in renovations the first year. That would only address reorganization in clinic space and is separate from the possibility of a building expansion.
Health District Commissioner Pamela Butler said the plans regard "turning office space into clinic space and really turning space around. This one is about the potential of, as we move forward, designing the potential of new services."

PEMBERVILLE - The Eastwood Committee to Save Our Elementaries plans to attend Monday night's Eastwood Board of Education meeting in the high school library.
The board meeting starts at 7 p.m. and the group plans to gather 10 minutes before the meeting.
The committee plans to ask the board to hold off on any spending of money or decisions related to a central campus elementary or any new construction until the committee has time to meet with the board and share information they have collected.
The committee organized in an effort to stop any levy that would consolidate the Luckey and Pemberville elementaries into one central campus elementary. Its slogan is "We voted no twice - no central elementary." Its mission statement is "Supporting the Eastwood School District while maintaining our local village elementaries."

WATERVILLE - The Ohio Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting March 27 to present three alternatives for the Waterville Bridge replacement project on State Routes 64/65 in Lucas and Wood counties.
The meeting will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Waterville Primary School's Community Room, 457 Sycamore Lane, Waterville.
The three alternatives including a design for a bridge on the existing bridge's alignment, a bridge built on a parallel alignment, and a bridge built on an offset, said ODOT District 2 Spokesperson Theresa Pollick,
The project overall will include a wider bridge, installation of a roundabout at the SR 64/65 intersection, and necessary related work.
The replacement project, she said, came about because of the age of the bridge. "It's just at the end of its lifespan," she said.
County objects to BG request that could cripple transportation plan PDF Print E-mail

Wood County Commissioners Thursday morning approved an updated Public-Human Service Transportation plan update, moving a section of the plan that Bowling Green officials do not like to an appendix, rather than removing it completely from the document, as the city requested.
The updated plan, when submitted to the Ohio Department of Transportation, helps human service agencies apply for grants to purchase new or replacement vehicles to transport their clients.
Tuesday morning commissioners heard city officials ask that a section listing a Transportation Development Plan as a goal be removed from the plan. City officials believe the mention of the TDP could threaten money the city receives for its on-demand transit service and in the long-run expose the city to additional costs.
The amended plan indicates the idea of a TDP should be part of annual reviews of the entire document. A TDP would be needed if agencies and political subdivisions wanted to coordinate transportation services across the county. Bowling Green has been represented at the stakeholder meetings, along with agencies and a few other political subdivisions, where the updated plan was developed.
