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
Recently the State Auditor Keith Faber visited our city and personally presented the City of North Royalton with the Auditor of State Award for its thorough and accurate financial record keeping.
Special thanks to our Finance Director Eric Dean for all he does to ensure our city’s finances are in order! Read More.

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.

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.

Royal View Elementary School Family Literacy Night

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?
Something new I want to try out for 2019 is doing Neighborhood Meet & Greets throughout Ward 3. I need some residents who are willing to volunteer to host the meeting at their homes anytime this year that is convenient for them. 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!

Ward 3 E-Newsletter: January 2019

Greetings Ward 3 Resident,
Happy New Year! 2019 is off to a very busy start here in city government with much to report below. Before I get into more details I just wanted to share with you the following announcement:
Devoted to Continuing to Serve Ward 3
On January 3rd I pulled my petitions from the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections to seek a fourth elected term on the North Royalton City Council. I want to continue my dedicated service to you my residents and provide trusted veteran leadership for the community on Council. I know there have been some rumors about me possibly running for Mayor or Council President the last few months I like to address. Serving as Mayor or Council President of North Royalton is something I definitely want to do in the near future and would be an honor. Seeking higher local elected office would allow me to help so many more residents and give me the ability to make an even greater difference for my home town. I appreciate all of you who have been urging me to run. However after meeting with my family over the holidays, some personal prayer, and self-reflection I am committed to continuing my service to you my residents as the Ward 3 Councilman. At this point in my life since my young family has grown recently with the addition of my youngest son Derek, my dedication to working to complete some unfinished projects/issues in our ward, and ensuring your voices are heard on Council remain my continued number one priority. Just not the right time yet. However I will reassess again in a few years. As a US Army Veteran service is something that is in my DNA. I truly love what I do! I also think 2020 will be a challenging transition year for our city with a new Mayor, Council President, and majority of Council. As a leader I believe my proven experience, dedication to service and leadership will be an asset to our community during this time! As I a leader I plan to step up to the challenge by hopefully being selected to serve as Council Pro Tem and help mentor the new members of Council with my experience, so together we all can provide great service to our community. The Council Pro Tem position fills in for the Council President when they are absent and is voted on by the new council once they are seated in 2020. Read More. Over the next several months I will be going door to door throughout our entire ward to meet with residents. I look forward to hearing what concerns or suggestions you may have regarding our ward and city’s future to come. See you soon!
Have a great Weekend!
Dan Langshaw
Ward 3 Councilman

Council Update

Highlights from Council Meetings
Some highlights from the Council Meetings for the month of December. Council passed Resolution 18-124 a resolution strongly urging the Ohio General Assembly to pass Senate Bill 17 and restore back local government funding to municipalities throughout Ohio. Council also approved Ordinance 18-126 approving the Mayor’s appointment of Mark Smith to serve as the new Wastewater Superintendent for the City of North Royalton. Read More. Council approved Ordinance 18-129 amending the city’s parking ordinance to limit vehicles being parked on a tree lawn or front yard lawn for more than 24 hours. Read More. Council approved Ordinance 18-135 authoring the Mayor to enter into a lease agreement to purchase radios for the Police Department. Council approved Ordinance 18-138 authorizing the Mayor to enter into an agreement with Senior Transportation Connection.

2019 Budget Update
City Council has recently approved the 2019 City Budget. The budget is extremely conservative and solid balanced budget. While dealing with an estimated $900,000 in additional state funding cuts and an economic forecast of a 0.19% decrease in income tax revenue for 2019. As such I do plan to travel to Columbus in the next few months to testify before the Ohio General Assembly to urge them to restore local government funding cuts and invest more funding into repairing our aging infrastructure as well with the next biennium State Budget.

Special thank you to Mrs Vadini for the invite!
Senior Christmas Party
On December 10th it was great to attend the North Royalton Senior Center Christmas Party! Also great to see Santa Claus too!

Ward 3 Economic Development
The North Royalton Planning Commission has recently approved site plans which include two additions on the Shearer Equipment building for new tenants and razing the building that houses Olesia’s Place and the home next door to make way for a multi-tenant building as part of the new 82 Biz Plex here in Ward 3. The proposal for this future 82 Biz Plex also includes razing the building in front of Shearer where Olesia’s Place is located and the home next door to construct a new, single-story freestanding building, 11,520 square feet in size, that can accommodate up to eight new tenants, also for office/light industrial. A new driveway will be installed where the home is currently. The Planning Commission also approved consolidating all three parcels into one. Construction to begin in 2019. As a result the restaurant Olesia’s Place will be relocating to the former Taverne of Richfield in the summer. It’s great to see some re-development in this part of Ward 3 but I am sad see Olesia’s Place go but wish them all the best. Read More.

Hopefully Mother Nature will be nice to us some more for 2019. But just in case 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
Do not place holiday lights (tanglers) in your curbside recycling. Tanglers, including holiday lights and power cords, cannot be recycled in your home recycling bin and will cause problems and shut-downs at the local recycling facility. During the Christmas season, retailers including Home Depot and Lowe’s Home Improvement have collection bins for holiday lights. Check at your local store. Christmas Light Source and HolidayLEDs also offer recycling and rebate programs for strings of lights. The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo collects Lights for Lions to support lion and cheetah conservation efforts. Drop off bins are inside the Zoo gates from January 1st-February 15th. Recycle your broken, burned out strings of lights, power strips and power cords during the District’s holiday lights recycling program. The Solid Waste District accepts strands of lights (holiday lights and other strands) at its facility located at 4750 East 131 Street in Garfield Heights. Drop off in our lobby during business hours M-F 8:30am-4:30pm. The recycling program runs December 1st-January 15th. No bags or boxes in the recycling bin, please. Place items loose in our lobby drop box and take all bags, boxes and containers home with you. Artificial trees, solar lights and outdoor spotlights are not accepted. Materials collected are recycled by a local Cleveland company.

Langshaw Addresses Rumors about Possible Run for North Royalton Mayor or Council President

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

January 3, 2019

(North Royalton, Ohio)— Ward 3 Councilman Dan Langshaw has been rumored for months about a possible run for North Royalton Mayor or Council President. Langshaw 33 years old is one of the few current city elected officials who have successfully won citywide office before. In 2009, at the age of 23 he became the youngest resident in city history to be elected and serve on the North Royalton School Board. Langshaw served on the Board till 2013 and then has been the Ward 3 Councilman ever since.

On January 3rd Councilman Langshaw ended all the rumors with officially pulling his petitions at the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections to seek a fourth elected term on the North Royalton City Council for Ward 3 to continue his dedicated service to his residents and provide trusted veteran leadership for the community on Council.

After pulling his petitions Langshaw said “Serving as Mayor or Council President of North Royalton is something I definitely want to do in the near future and would be an honor. Seeking higher local elected office would allow me to help so many more residents and give me the ability to make an even greater difference for my home town. I appreciate all those in the community who have been urging me to run the last few months. However after meeting with my family over the holidays, some personal prayer, and self-reflection I am committed to continuing my service to my residents as the Ward 3 Councilman. At this point in my life since my young family has grown recently with the addition of my youngest son Derek, my dedication to working to complete some unfinished projects/issues in my ward, and ensuring my residents voices are heard on Council remain my continued number one priority. Just not the right time yet. However I will reassess again in a few years.”

A majority of City Council will be termed out of office. Langshaw plans to seek the Council Pro Tem position which is voted on by the new council once they are seated. The Council Pro Tem fills in for the Council President when they are absent. “As a US Army Veteran service is something that is in my DNA. 2020 will be a challenging transition year for our city. As a leader I believe my proven experience, dedication to service and leadership will be an asset to our community! As I a leader I plan to step up to the challenge by hopefully being selected to serve as Council Pro Tem and help mentor the new members of Council with my experience, so together we all can provide great service to our community” said Langshaw.
