Dan Langshaw Ordinance 21-67 Proposed Mobile Food Unit Ordinance Public Comments at the April 6, 2021 North Royalton City Council Meeting & Statement

Below is my full comments at the April 6, 2021 Regular North Royalton City Council Meeting about the Food Truck Legislation Ordinance 21-67 that I addressed City Council on during the public comments portion of the meeting agenda.

Unfortunately City Council passed this final version of legislation that was available to the public and the media only on Monday and passed it on First Reading not allowing Three Readings for further public input before a vote nor without any changes to the legislation.

The vote on Ordinance 21-67 was 5-2. I appreciate that our city’s charter and council rules allow for residents an opportunity to be heard and from past experience has been extremely helpful before I took tough votes on council.

I fully support residents first amendment rights to be heard. Thank you to the Council President and Ward 1 Councilwoman for at least voting against this legislation last night and taking into consideration residents and businesses concerns that were raised to try improve the legislation.

Dan Langshaw’s Intersection of York & Albion Road Public Comments February 2, 2021 before North Royalton City Council Streets Committee Meeting

 

Dan Langshaw’s Intersection of York & Albion Road Public Comments February 2, 2021 before North Royalton City Council Streets Committee Meeting

The issue of addressing the traffic and safety concerns regarding the intersection of York & Albion Road has been going for almost two decades. We all know what needs to be done. I thought we were close to getting real action on this issue early in 2020 when I was on Council. However, it seems like we are going backwards to further delays with another study being called for it seems. I urge City Council to finally get this issue addressed by either adding a left turn arrow to the existing signal operation or left turn only lanes on the northbound and southbound approaches to York Road. Here are some reasons why:

  • Page 5 of the June 2019 Intersection Crash Evaluation Technical Memorandum Study by the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency, they ranked it as the 4th highest intersection in our city with frequent crashes between 2014-2018 with a total of 36 vs the intersection of Ridge/Royalwood/Julia that was in a 4 way tie for 9th.
  • Page 6 of June 2019 Intersection Crash Evaluation Technical Memorandum Study by the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency even states that the intersection of York & Albion Road be a higher priority to address due to the frequency of crashes.
  • Page 6 of the November 2020 Intersection Operational Analysis York Road and Albion Road Study by the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency under recommendations under bullet points 3 and 5 support my suggested solutions I have already mention and some of you have too.
  • Fire Station #2 is located at the intersection of York and Albion Roads and is a vital service that people count on with their lives to respond quickly without delay.
  • In a May 4, 2019 North Royalton Post Article Mrs. Fenos was quoted saying “If traffic backs up with nowhere else to go and emergency vehicles can’t exit freely, there’s the potential for emergency response time delays”. I agree with her.

Please address this important issue with the solutions already presented to City Council.

Dan Langshaw’s Statement on COVID-19 Vaccine

January 28, 2021

For Immediate Release

Dan Langshaw’s Statement on COVID-19 Vaccine

Like many of you in the community, I too have been very skeptical of getting the COVID-19 vaccine that is now available. In my life when I make a major decision I do my due diligence and research first. Also being a husband of a front-line nurse that has to battle COVID-19 every shift at her hospital, I understand how difficult this battle is first-hand. My wife has worked tirelessly in her line of work and it has been extremely hard to see how much COVID-19 has effected families in our area and the impact nurses and those on the front lines have with this overwhelming pandemic. As a family we decided that I would get the vaccine due to the opportunity supplied by my employer.

Dan Langshaw’s Statement on Misinformation by Council Members & Call Again for Increased Transparency of City Council

January 26, 2021

For Immediate Release

Dan Langshaw’s Statement on Misinformation by Council Members & Call Again for Increased Transparency of City Council

It has been brought to my attention that a member or members of the North Royalton City Council have falsely said I have “lied” about the food truck ordinance draft through different social media groups or in communications with residents. In the past these tactics were used by the current majority in an effort to defame me, my family, and to bait me. I will not let such childish tactics bully me from providing transparent information of what is going on in our local government and its potential impact on North Royalton and our struggling small businesses.

The food truck ordinance draft that is posted on my Facebook page here:  https://www.facebook.com/58627438748/posts/10158915510178749/ This was indeed the hand delivered copy I received from the City of North Royalton Economic Development Director Tom Jordan after he spoke during the North Royalton City Council Building & Building Codes Committee Meeting January 19, 2021 a public meeting any resident could attend. I attended the meeting in person, as well as others too in the audience with me. I did not write out or make up this draft. This was the public draft that I was given at this meeting and which was the same one presented to council.

North Royalton Small Business Owners COVID-19 Relief Fund Announced

North Royalton Small Business Owners COVID-19 Relief Fund Announced

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE January 18, 2021

(North Royalton, Ohio)—Martin Luther King Jr. once said “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?” Taking that to heart former North Royalton Councilman Dan Langshaw and candidate for North Royalton Ward 3 City Council announced on MLK Day January 18, 2021 via a video on his Facebook page at Facebook.com/DanLangshawNR that he has officially launched a GoFundMe at gf.me/u/zfv9kd called the North Royalton Small Business Owners COVID-19 Relief Fund. The purpose of the fund is to provide much needed financial assistance to any small business owners in North Royalton, Ohio that have been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic that need help to avoid closing their doors for good.

According to the US Chamber of Commerce, 43% of small businesses surveyed believe that they have less than six months until a permanent shutdown is unavoidable. Which is why, Langshaw back in December of 2020 urged the North Royalton City Council during a Special Finance Committee Meeting on the 2021 City Budget to reallocate funds to help save struggling small businesses in North Royalton. Only to have it fall on deaf ears as the budget was stamped with the Council’s approval.
