the hearts
we leave behind,
is never to
have died.

Zoning Updates: The hearing before the Board of Zoning Appeals regarding the application from Senuta Property, LLC, which applied to install two double-sided billboards visible to Route 8 on Parcel #07-00108 just east of the northeast corner of the Akron-Cleveland Rd. and Barlow Rd. intersection, was continued until May 24 at the request of the applicant. Also considered on May 24 was an application for conditional use and a variance for the property located at 105 Kendall Park Rd.

Thanks, Ray and Welcome, Jay! After serving on the Board of Zoning Appeals for fifteen years, Ray Hach decided not to seek reappointment. At the trustees` meeting on May 11, Jay Littler, who has been serving as an Alternate Member of the BZA, was appointed to fill the vacant seat through June 3, 2027. We offer a tremendous thank you to Ray for his years of dedicated service to Boston Township and welcome Jay as a fully-seated member.

Summit e-Waste: The e-Waste Recycling Solutions collection box which was placed at the rear of the township property has seen much use.

Now that this plan has been signed, Cuyahoga Falls can put the project out for bids.
