CLEVELAND (AP) - More public money has been committed to the planned $32 million makeover of Cleveland’s Public Square.

The board of trustees of the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District on Thursday voted to commit a $3 million grant to support green infrastructure in the renovation of the iconic public space.

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/1sQR2pV ) reports that the money will help pay for permeable pavers and storm water planters for trees that will flank the square.

Other green features in Public Square’s redesign include new drainage for the square’s monument garden and a system to collect storm water for re-use.

All together, the measures will capture 3 million gallons of water per year that would otherwise flow into storm drains.
