SPRINGFIELD — A new restroom located along Canfield Road next to the Springfield Senior and Community Center is now open.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the facility took place May 22 with Summit County Executive Russ Pry and township officials.

The building, shown above, offers separate men and women’s facilities and is compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act, according to township officials. A privacy fence at the front soon will be added.

The facility was funded by a 2012 Summit County Community Development Block Grant of $80,000, with the township contributing another $20,000, according to township officials.

Before the restroom building was constructed, residents had to use one of three portable facilities set up in the area. Township officials said some of those will remain in place.
