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 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.

Ward 3 Quick Update: March 13, 2020

Ward 3 Resident,

I know there are a lot of residents concerned about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We will all get through this by working together as both a Ward and a community! There are now at least 3 confirmed cases in Cuyahoga County and Governor Mike DeWine has declared as State of Emergency to allow state departments and agencies to better coordinate in their response to COVID-19. Read More.

We as local city officials here in North Royalton recognize the current COVID-19 situation and the potential impact. Fire Chief Robert Chegan, serving as the Emergency Coordinator for our City, and Mayor Larry Antoskiewicz have maintained daily situational awareness since the inception of this rapidly evolving situation. We as a City continue to coordinate with the following agencies on a daily basis: CDC, Ohio Department of Health, Cuyahoga County Office of Emergency Management, Cuyahoga County Board of Health, the International Association of Fire Chiefs and other government and healthcare agencies.

With that, it is important not to panic, be educated, and to take steps at home to prevent the spread of germs. To prepare and be aware of any potential outbreaks, ReadyNotify is our City’s Reverse 911 notification system powered by CodeRED. It’s used by the County and our community to issue emergency notifications to the residents, especially when rapid and accurate information is essential for your immediate safety.
