Zoning Update: The Zoning Commission continues to work with Mark Majewski from NorthStar Planning to revise the zoning ordinance regarding home occupations and other issues. The Board of Zoning Appeals held a hearing on April 23 approving Alpine Structures at 2730 Akron-Cleveland Road. Dave Calaway was reappointed to the Board of Zoning Appeals to a five-year term.

Road Department: Brush pick-up is scheduled for the first working Monday of each month starting with May 6 and continues through October 7. Place cut ends toward the road. Please, no dirt balls, no foreign materials such as lumber, nails, or any type of wire. This service is for limb trimming and storm clean-up. It is not for full tree removal. Please remember that it is the responsibility of the property owner to keep the ditch free of any material that can restrict the flow of storm water.
