Moreland Hills is thriving as we make our way through a beautiful summer. We hope that you have attended one of our “More in the Hills” events or have participated in our Saturday yoga sessions at the Lang Pavilion. We have more events scheduled throughout the summer and they can be found on our Village Facebook page, website and this newsletter.
Just a few weeks ago, our Police Department hosted its annual “Community Kid’s Fishing Day” at Potts Pier in Village Park. We had a great turnout with lots of smiles and some impressive catfish and small mouth bass. Thanks to our Police Chief Kevin Wyant and his Officers for taking their time to make this event a success.
Recently, the Village hosted our “Gas Versus Battery” event at Lang Pavilion. We had a good turnout as residents saw first-hand, the benefits associated with the use of battery-powered lawn equipment. Together we can make a difference and help to reduce noise pollution in our Village. Battery- powered leaf blowers and weed trimmers are significantly quieter when compared to their gas counterparts. Additionally, there is no need to mix fuel and attend to many of the maintenance issues that gas-powered units require. If you use a landscaper you can still help. Consider the purchase of a battery-powered leaf blower and leave it out when you are scheduled for maintenance. Homeowners can request that their leaf blower is used for general cleanup after the lawn is serviced. We hope that many residents will make the switch to battery-powered units. My family has made the switch and the reduction of noise levels in our yard has been significant. I’m happy to take phone calls or answer emails if anyone is interested in learning more about this switch.
Our Road Program starts this month and will feature many improvements throughout the Village. Many residents contact me regarding the condition of their road surfaces. It must be noted that we don’t approach this maintenance in a haphazard manner. Each year our 5-year plan is updated as winter takes its toll on the asphalt. In the Spring, our Engineer drives the entire Village and updates road condition rankings based on several factors including, but not limited to, safety and traffic volume. These rankings are then used to prioritize improvements in a fair and equitable manner. This year we are spending 1.8 million dollars on our roads. This includes the resurfacing of Chagrin Boulevard and several side streets throughout the Village.
Members of our Charter Review Commission are working hard to review our Village Charter and suggest any changes they feel are necessary. This Commission is made up of volunteers and is Chaired by resident Trina Gigax. Any suggested changes will be evaluated and considered by your Village Council. Upon consensus, Council may then vote to forward some or all of these suggestions for your consideration in the next General Election. Special thanks to all of the residents who are helping out with this process.
Members of our Parks Commission are working hard to prepare for our annual “Head for the Hills” event this Fall. Looking to set a healthy goal? Consider preparing for this 5k run/walk and enjoy one of the most beautiful courses in the Chagrin Valley. In addition to this run/walk we will feature a hike, kid’s activities and more.
I look forward to seeing many of you at one of our events and wish you all a happy and safe July.
