Ward 3 Quick Update June 18, 2019

Ward 3 Resident,

I have a few quick items to update you on below. Hope you all are having a great summer!


Street Striping
JD Striping and Services will not begin street striping throughout our city beginning towards the end of June.  The striping will be done during the hours of 8:00pm and 6:00am to avoid issues with traffic. Drivers should use extreme caution and patience if they encounter a striping crew.

Columbia Gas Betterment Project (Albion to North Corporation Line)
Beginning this week, some of the restoration work will begin along the project corridor to repair driveway aprons and the roadway that was disturbed as part of this project.  Columbia Gas is in the process of installing a 12″ diameter gas line along Ridge Road from north of Albion Toad to north of Tilby Road.  This  gas  main will provide better pressures to portions south and west of this location for future and already expanded developments in the City. Portions of this gas main are being installed along the southbound lane of Ridge Road, while the remainder will be installed within private easements on the west side of Ridge Road that were acquired by Columbia Gas.  While working in the roadway, there will be times of delays as traffic is stopped in one direction to allow traffic from the opposite direction to proceed.  Please use caution while traveling through this and any construction zone.  This project is anticipated to be completed in the Fall (October) 2019.  Please direct any and all concerns to the Engineering Department at 440-582-3001.

June 17, 2019 North Royalton Ward 3 Councilman Dan Langshaw Substitute House Bill 166 Testimony before Ohio Senate Finance Committee

Chairman Dolan, Vice Chair Burke, Ranking Member Sykes, and committee members. My name is Dan Langshaw and I am the Ward 3 Councilman on the North Royalton City Council. Thank you for the opportunity once again testify on Substitute House Bill 166 the State Operating Budget this time in the Senate.

The residents I serve and all Ohioans wonder why there are so many communities having to put more levies, bond issues, and other ballot measures these days? Why are our highways, roads, bridges, and infrastructure falling apart in our state? The answer is local governments historically have not been getting the funding they desperately need to address these issues in our communities.

May 14, 2019 Public Comments on Ordinance 2019-0005 before Cuyahoga County Council

Good evening members of the Cuyahoga County Council. My name is Dan Langshaw and I am the Ward 3 Councilman on the North Royalton City Council. Thank you for the opportunity provide comments regarding proposed Ordinance 2019-0005 the county disposable bag ban on behalf of my residents.

The sponsors of this legislation mean well. However, my residents have three key points they would like for you to take into consideration before you vote on this ban tonight. First, the timing of this legislation seems to be a smoke screen to avoid dealing with serious issues of alleged county corruption that is being investigated by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office. The perception is a concern as well as the need for increased oversight in county government.

Second, the priorities of this council is a concern. If you ask my residents their top priorities are seeing additional county assistance for residents dying of the opioid epidemic, battling poverty, and addressing urgent infrastructure needs. For example I have an intersection of York Road (a county road) and Albion Road in my ward that desperately could use Issue One funding for a traffic study to help in making it safer and less congested. However, we must battle against cities like Cleveland for years to come even close to scoring for such funds. The environment is a concern but council needs to focus on other urgent priories as well county-wide.

Third, this bag ban seems to be pushed down our throats. Why isn’t this on the ballot for a vote? No one from the county has even reached out to local elected officials like myself in the other 58 municipalities to see how we could work more collaboratively together towards addressing this issue regionally. As well as exploring ways to expand existing education, environmental, and sustainability programs in our communities.

In closing, I agree with my residents that County Council should put this issue on the ballot for November. Give ALL residents whether they live on the east or west of this county a chance to collaboratively have their voices heard regarding this issue. A more collaborative approach such as this gives more time to educate residents, advocate to state lawmakers, and work with local elected officials toward a common goal of protecting our environment.

Thank you for the opportunity to speak to you.

May 6, 2019 North Royalton Ward 3 Councilman Dan Langshaw & Ward 4 Councilman Paul Marnecheck House Bill 166 Joint Testimony before Ohio House Finance Committee

Chairman Oelslager, Vice Chair Scherer, Ranking Member Cera, and committee members. My name is Dan Langshaw and I am the Ward 3 Councilman on the North Royalton City Council. I am also accompanied by my colleague North Royalton Ward 4 Councilman Paul Marnecheck. Thank you for the opportunity for us both to testify on House Bill 166 the State Operating Budget.

The residents we both serve and all Ohioans wonder why there are so many communities having to put more levies, bond issues, and other ballot measures these days? Why are our highways, roads, bridges, and infrastructure falling apart in our state? The answer is looking you in the mirror. It is the leadership in Columbus for almost a decade that has caused this mess. Local governments historically have not been getting the funding they desperately need to address these issues in our communities.

Ward 3 Quick Update April 27, 2019

Ward 3 Resident,

Just a reminder that the Medication Take Back Day is TODAY. See below flier for more details about times and drop off locations throughout the city.

The North Royalton Police Department has a secure drop off box in the lobby of their station that residents can use throughout the year to also dispose safely any unused medications as well.

Have a great weekend!

Highlights from Council Meetings
Some highlights from the Council Meetings for the month of March.

Council approved Ordinance 19-13 regulating short term rentals by a 5-2 vote. I am glad to see this legislation I co-sponsored was passed into law by the majority of Council that will both keep our neighborhoods safe while still respecting property owner rights within reason to make some extra income. No one wants to see residential homes being turned into motels. Read More. Council also approved Resolution 19-28 authorizing the Mayor to enter into a final contract with the Ohio Department of Transportation for the construction of sidewalk from City Hall on State Road to Royalton Road and State Road. Council approved Ordinance 19-30 selling the city’s old compost facility property to the North Royalton City School District for their bus garage. Read More.

Police Body and Dash Cameras Discussion
As Chairman of the Safety Committee at the request of the Council President Antoskiewicz we had discussion on Police Body and Dash Cameras at our March meeting. It was a very positive discussion.

Regional Leadership Position Announcement 
Also on March 21st I was elected as the new Treasurer for the Northeast Ohio City Council Association at their Annual Membership Meeting held at the Doubletree by Hilton in Independence. The Northeast Ohio City Council Association (NOCCA) is a regional organization made up of elected municipal, township and village council members that are dedicated to developing solutions towards common regional issues and concerns. There are approximately 300 members representing over 40 communities throughout Northeast Ohio. I have been a member of NOCCA for six years and am excited about the opportunity to be in a regional leadership position with such a prestigious organization. It is my hope to building upon my efforts to work collaboratively with other elected officials throughout Cuyahoga County to advocate for common issues that effect all communities.

Intersection of York Road & Albion Road Traffic 
I have gotten some complaints recently from Ward 3 residents about the increased traffic and congestion at the intersection of York Road and Albion Road due to the Route 82 construction. Since 2013 and even before my late predecessor Councilman Don Willey has looked for possible solutions for the intersection from a possible widening of the road, adding a lane, or even a new traffic control system all of which then and still remain not economically feasible. When there is possible funding available I have advocated for something to be done. In a few years the traffic pattern will change when Albion Elementary School is demolished and no longer in use due to the new centralized elementary school being built on State Road and Valley Parkway. Which will help decrease congestion. However as Chairman of the Safety Committee I brought the issue up again this time at our March Meeting since the Route 82 widening project has begun and it is worth looking at this again. I requested that the administration see if some possible solutions could be changing the timing of the lights or even having an officer do some traffic control during peak times to help with the flow of traffic. The Safety Director and Police Department Traffic Unit will take a look at this again and return back with some recommendations. I will keep you posted. 

Exterior Property Maintenance Reminder
As your Councilman I get reports from the Building Department on various violations by Ward 3 property owners, which city building inspectors have found during their inspections. A common violation I start to see this time of the year as the weather gets warmer is of non-compliance with Section 660.14(a) (b) (c) (d) of the Codified Ordinances of North Royalton titled “Weeds and Grass”. A majority of these are properties that appear to be either vacant or in foreclosure, in which the grass has not been cut or the weeds have become overgrown. Here are some helpful reminders about what property owners are required to do for exterior maintenance of their property. Property owners are required to cut any weeds, grass, underbrush and non-edible grass or woody vegetation in excess of 6 inches. Ensure that any ditches are kept clear of any type of grass, underbrush in excess of 6 inches. Exterior of property areas of all premises and lots shall be kept free of any debris, objects, material or conditions which may create a health, accident or fire hazard. The exterior of every structure or accessory structure including fences, shall be maintained in good repair and all surfaces shall be kept painted. Storing abandoned or junk vehicles on your property is not allowed. If you know of any properties like this in our Ward that may have an issue, please report them to the Building Department at 440-582-3000.

Beware of Solicitors and Scams 
As the weather gets warmer I start to get complaints from residents about people soliciting without permit selling things to curb painting scams. Also I get complaints about folks taping fliers on their mailboxes soliciting as well. If you see someone doing this report them to the 
North Royalton Police Department on the Non-Emergency Phone # at 440-237-8686 so they can check them out. As you know I fought hard to increase the penalty of people soliciting without a permit and want to keep our neighborhoods safe. Read More. If  you do need a reliable address sign the North Royalton Fire Department does them for residents. They offer a reflective metal address sign that can be attached to your mailbox that can be seen by emergency responders year round in any weather. The cost for the sign is just $15.00 to cover the cost of materials. The Fire Fighters will even install the sign for residents if they are unable to do so themselves. Click Here if you are interested purchasing one.

Ward 3 E-Newsletter: March 2019

Greetings Ward 3 Resident,

We are slowly getting closer to Spring. Today is Daylight Savings Time, as friendly reminder it might also be a good idea to check all batteries in the smoke detectors in your home to make sure they work. City government remains relatively busy with a number of things to report on below.

I’m on the Ballot
I have recently filed my petitions with the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections to seek re-election for a fourth term as your Ward 3 Councilman on the North Royalton City Council. I am happy to report that my petitions have been validated by the Board of Elections and I am officially on the ballot for the November 5th General Election! I look forward to going door to door very soon to listen to your concerns and feedback on what you want for the future of Ward 3 and the City of North Royalton!

Have a great Weekend and an early Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Dan Langshaw
Ward 3 Councilman
North Royalton City Council




Council Update

Highlights from Council Meetings
Some highlights from the Council Meetings for the month of February. Council approved Ordinance 19-09 and Ordinance 19-10 to purchase vehicles for the Police Department. Council Also approved Ordinance 19-11 for a vehicle for the Fire Department. 

Short-Term Rental Legislation Update
Council President Larry Antoskiewicz and I are co-sponsoring Ordinance 19-13 that would provide some basic regulations to short term rental properties in the city. I do not want homes becoming hotels in residential zoned areas but at the same time, want to protect homeowners’ rights to such rentals and do not want the city’s current short-term rental moratorium to be dragged any longer than it needs to be. The legislation is currently on third reading and in the Building & Building Codes Committee for further discussion. Read More.

City Update


Auditor of State Award

Special thanks to our Finance Director Eric Dean for all he does to ensure our city’s finances are in order! Read More.

ReadyNotify System Changes

To ensure you continue receiving notifications from the ReadyNotify System, you must RE-REGISTER at www.readynotify.us If you have any questions, please email: readynotifysupport@cuyahogacounty.us. or call 216-443-5700. Read More.

Deer Update
Deer archery hunting season has ended with the total number of about 144 taken in North Royalton for 2018. Here in Ward 3 there were 15 deer that were taken. A positive statistic to note is in 2018 there were 51 deer related car crashes that were reported. This is a decrease from the  95 that that were reported in 2017. Overall the third year of this program went well with minimal issues. 


Route 82 Widening Project Update
Work continues on widening of Route 82 between W. 130th Street and York Road. I have received some complaints last month about the center line being hard to see. Working with the County and Engineering Department they have re-stripe the center line of the road a few weeks ago to ensure motorist safety. The contractor has a standing order to re-stripe the center line as often as it is needed. Unfortunately, the weather has not always been cooperative.  Weather too cold, or too wet, does not allow the paint to dispense or adhere.  The replacement water main is approximately 75% installed and should be be completed by mid-March.  Installation of the sanitary sewer extension across the street from the Service Center has been completed.  Storm sewer work has begun and will continue over the winter months. The large storm culvert near the Service Center has been replaced, and the storm culvert west of Abbey Road is scheduled to be replaced soon.  In order to minimize disruption to the traveling public, this work is anticipated to be performed at nighttime. Also beware of speed limit changes from 35mph to 25mph as well. The Cuyahoga County Public Works Department is responsible for construction of this project.  Any questions should be directed to their field office in North Royalton at 440-628-9229.

Tax Assistance
Are you looking for tax assistance? AARP Foundation Tax-Aide offers free tax preparation to anyone of any age-especially if you are 50 or older or can’t afford paid tax preparation. Every Wednesday, beginning February 6 through April 10, 2019 from 9:30am -12:30pm. at the North Royalton Public Library 5071 Wallings Road returns are electronically filed with the assistance of a tax counselor. Appointments are also available in person at the North Royalton Senior Center or by calling the center 440-582-6333.

Special thanks to the Teachers and Staff at Royal View Elementary School for organizing this family fun event!

Safety Reminder

The North Royalton Police Department has seen an increase in thefts of items from unlocked vehicles in recent days. Entry is gained into these vehicles by opening unlocked doors and gaining access to steal anything of value. Residents should try to park in well-lit areas and lock all vehicles when left unattended; please remove purses, wallets and anything of value.  Most of these thefts are made when criminals sneak around and peek into car windows and open garages. If they do not see anything good, they will move on to someone else’s property.  Call the North Royalton Police Department at 440-237-8686 if you see something or someone that looks suspicious.

Ward 3 Recycling Tip of the Month
Did you know plastic bags are recyclable? Since our curbside recycling program does not accept plastic shopping bags, most people believe that they can’t be recycled at all.  Thankfully, most people are mistaken.  When dropped off at many local retail locations, such as Giant Eagle, Lowe’s, Marc’s. Target, Kohl’s and Walmart.  Check with your local store to confirm the types of plastic bags and film they will accept as the list may vary.

Hosts Needed Still for Ward 3 Neighborhood Meet & Greets?

The purpose of these meetings is to get to know me better as your Councilman, share ideas or concerns for the city/ward, and to get to know your neighbors a little better too. If you are interested in being a host home please email me at ward3@northroyalton.org or call me at 440-785-4240 for more information. Thank you for your help!
