A group of agencies in Richland County is applying for a grant from the Ohio Development Department to set-up a system for residents to report blight in their neighborhoods.

Matt Work of the Mansfield-Ontario-Richland County Health Department, Jean Taddie of the Mansfield North End Community Improvement Collaborative, and Regional Planning Commission Director Matt Huffman told the commissioners Thursday morning many people don't know who to call.

The plan is to have First Call 211 be the reporting point, and the system would allow residents to track the status of the response to their complaint on-line.

The grant would be for $125,000 to $150,000 , and pay for a two-year trial program that would serve as a long-term feasibility study.

   
The commissioners agreed to file the grant application, which is due March first.
