North Royalton Ward 3 & Community E-Newsletter: May 2021 (Volume 11)

Greetings Residents,

It’s been a long year since the  COVID-19 pandemic first hit our country. Finally there are some new hopes that life is returning to normal. I would like to update you on some COVID-19 information, things going on in our local government that you should be aware of, and community events happening around our community. 

Today is Memorial Day. Harry S. Truman once said, “Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.” On this Memorial Day let’s honor and remember all those who have paid the the ultimate price especially from our community so we all can live free as Americans. 

If I can be of any service to you or your family don’t hesitate to email me at danlangshawfornrward3@yahoo.com or call me at 440-785-4240.

May God Bless all the fallen and Gold Star Families on this Memorial Day.

Dan Langshaw’s Statement on Ordinance 21-81 passed by City Council for a Charter Amendment to change the election process of Mayor and Council President

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

May 21, 2021

On May 18, 2021 the North Royalton City Council in a 5-2 vote approved Ordinance 21-81. This charter amendment would  be on November 2, 2021 General Election ballot and would change the way our Mayor and Council President are elected in North Royalton. The Council President and Ward 1 Councilwoman were correct in voting against this Ordinance. Sadly this is another move by the current majority on city council that wastes taxpayer dollars.

If this new charter amendment is approved, it would add a special May primary election with only the top two vote getters for Mayor and Council President moving on to the November ballot.

A primary election will waste at least $40,000 to $100,000 or more of our taxpayer dollars just to pay for a special election. Turnout for most municipal elections are typically low. How many residents want to, or will even show up to vote in an odd year primary? This is an unnecessary waste of our time.

The current Council President was quoted recently in a local newspaper saying, “Current system has worked previous times when multiple candidates ran for mayor and the current system gives plenty of time to evaluate candidates”. I concur too that the current process is not broken. In 2019, our current Mayor defeated four other candidates and obtained over 50% of the vote. Our current Council President ran unopposed.

Greetings Residents,

Living in Northeast, Ohio you never know what to expect when it comes to our weather. Hopefully we have experienced our last of freak snow storms and can enjoy more fun spring activities! This update includes a number of important COVID-19, local government and community events happening this spring. I also have some exciting news to share with you.

Special Announcement

I wanted to share some good news with you all that the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections recently validated my petitions and I am officially on the November 2, 2021 General Election ballot to retake my North Royalton Ward 3 Council seat. Read More.

As I walked and drove around Ward 3, I thought about issues many of you residents shared with me such as paying high taxes and not getting much in return of city services, making our city more business friendly, and adding more checks and balances on the power of our local government. These are all issues I plan to address back on city council. Thank you to those who signed my petitions to get me officially on the ballot.
 
I plan in the coming months to meet with as many Ward 3 residents as possible, learn more how to best serve the community moving forward, and work even harder than before to address vital issues in North Royalton to get our city back on track regardless of the continued malicious politics in our city.

Have a great week!

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.
