Ward 3 E-Newsletter: February 2018

Greetings Ward 3 Resident,

The groundhog saw his shadow which means six more weeks of winter. Looking outside I think he may be right unfortunately. City government remains relatively busy with a number of things to report on below.

FYI on our Salt Reserves

Effective February 9th, the City of North Royalton has enacted road salt conservation measures due to Cargill Salt not being able to keep up with production due to the number of snowstorms throughout the Midwest. Hills, intersections and school zones will remain a priority during this conservation period. Please Click Here for an explanation from Cargill Salt. As always, please exercise extra caution while driving during the remainder of Winter. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!

Rumpke Rubbish & Recycling Collection Schedule
There is NO DELAY in rubbish or recycling collection on President’s Day February 19th. Your regular pick up day will be as normal that week. Please share this with any of your fellow neighbors who may not get my Ward Updates. If you have any issues or concerns regarding your pick up, please contact the City Service Department at 440-582-3002.

Have a great weekend!

Dan Langshaw

This year our city’s six wards will be reviewed to determine if redistricting, or ward boundary changes are needed. Our city charter requires such a review every four years to keep the ward populations as even as possible. The Cuyahoga County Planning Commission has been chosen to help conducted the review. Since there has not been any major new residential construction, I do not anticipate any changes. I will keep you posted on this issue. Read More.

Around Ward 3

Woodbury & West Hampton Annual HOA Meeting
On January 20th attended the Woodbury & West Hampton Annual HOA Meeting. I enjoyed getting feedback from residents and learning more about what the HOA is doing for their neighborhoods.

Mulch World New Owner
The City Planning Commission at its’ January 3rd Meeting granted site plan approval for Woodland Mulch LLC that has recently acquired the business Mulch World located at 12020 York Road.  The new owner’s will produce mulch at their Woodland’s facility in Kidron and then ship it to its satellite sales locations Navarre, Wooster, and soon to be York Road site.  I find it positive that the new owner does not have any plans to process the mulch at this site. Also they will be working to resolve past issues residents have had and improve this overall area of Ward 3. Read More.

York Road Commercial Park Expanding
More economic development here in Ward 3. The City Planning Commission on January 3rd also approved final site plans for longtime North Royalton property owner Pierre Zanin to construct another building at his York Road Commercial Park located at 13688 York Road. Read More.

Snow Parking Ban Reminder
Here is a reminder about snow parking bans and where to find out if one is in effect. A snow parking ban pertains to all city streets is not cancelled until a North Royalton Police Department supervisor deems all roads safe and clear, which typically occurs after snow plow operations have been completed. Violators of the snow parking ban are subject to parking citations and/or impoundment of their vehicles. If you like to find out if a snow parking ban is in place you can check out the NRPD Facebook page. You can also see updates in the Facebook and Twitter feed portions of my website’s homepage at www.danlangshaw.com

Ward 3 Recycling Tip of the Month
All metal food and beverage cans such as pop, beer, soup, vegetable, and tuna can be recycled in your community’s recycling program. Cans should be emptied, rinsed, and then recycled. Learn more about recycling cans. Cans are made from either steel or aluminum. Aluminum cans you put in your curbside recycling are processed and turned back in to new cans and foil that you’ll see on store shelves. Steel cans are recycled into new cans, car parts, and even bridges.
