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 January 19, 2019

Ward 3 Resident,

Just a few quick updates regarding the winter storm hitting our area. The National Weather Service is forecasting heavy snow this weekend. The city has crews working 24/7 to keep our roads clear and safe. Please be patience as crews clear the main and secondary roads first and then move on to the side streets, subdivisions and cul-de-sacs. 

Snow Parking Ban In Place
A snow parking ban has been put into effect in for the entire City of North Royalton. Do not park on city streets. The snow parking ban pertains to all city streets in North Royalton and will not be cancelled until a 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. North Royalton Police Department will advise when ban is to be lifted. Please share with your fellow neighbors in our ward. If you like too stay up to date about the snow parking ban 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

Have a Safe Weekend!

Greetings Ward 3 Resident,

The verdict is in the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow which means six more weeks of winter. Looking outside today I’m not too sure if he is correct about that. Regardless Spring will be here before we know it! City government remains relatively busy with a number of things to report on below.

Ward 3 Quick Update for November 23, 2015

Ward 3 Resident,

Just wanted to give you a quick update on some important items and upcoming events before the Thanksgiving Holiday.

North Royalton Ward 3 Sidewalk Survey
I have launched an online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NKGPCRQ for Ward 3 residents to give further input on the issue of sidewalks. Council has been debating this issue for over five years. All of the ward councilmen were urged to reach out to their residents in correlation with this issue after the November 4th City Council Streets Committee Meeting. City Council has been reviewing the recommendations from the year long North Royalton Alternative Transportation Study that was conducted by the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency. The study expands upon recommendations made from the 2014 City Master Plan that calls for the city to increase connectivity throughout parts of the city through various methods such as sidewalks, bike lanes, and etc. The study highlights some specific areas of the city to start focusing on for the future in regard to the installation of sidewalks.. The only areas in our ward that were recommend are as follows: State Rd. (Wallings Rd. to Castle Dr.) and York Rd. (York Alpha Dr, to W Wallings Rd.). Your feedback and participation are greatly appreciated. The sidewalk survey will run until January 4, 2016. Ward 3 residents who don’t have internet access can pick up a paper version of the survey at the City Council Office at 14600 State Rd. Click Here to complete the survey now.
