We are going to apply for an economic development grant to help with the project. Presentation by Mark Kochheiser regarding the Lime Lake 6, quasar energy project.

 

The Mayor reported that there are three Board of Zoning Appeal terms expiring on December 31, 2010. Art Wagner is currently serving a five-year term and William Young is serving as Alternate for a one year term. For the Planning Commission, Nick Olechnowicz is serving a five year term. The Mayor would like Council to give him their comments sometime before November 15th, 2010.

 

The City has applied for two non-matching $50,000 AMATS planning grants.

1.) A bike and hike trail connecting the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath beginning on Vanderhoof Road traveling to Portage Lakes State Park, then continuing to Nimisila Reservoir.

2.) Eastern Road corridor from Route 619 in New Franklin to Route 585 in Chippewa Township in Wayne County. New Franklin is the lead agency, in cooperation with the cities of Norton and Barberton, and the Wayne County Engineer. The Mayor believes that the intersection of Route 21, 585 and Eastern Road will be a gateway from the west to our communities in the near future.

 

The Boat and Fishing Expo are set for Saturday, May 28, 2011. That is Memorial Day weekend, but we will be joining forces with the Ohio Division of Natural Resources Water Craft and the Akron Chapter of the United States Power Squadron. Boater safety week beings the Saturday prior.

 

The dredge working on the south end of Turkeyfoot Lake is broken. A pump broke which caused a shaft to break. Repairs will take another two to three weeks, according to the PLAC.

 

There will be an open house at the Clinton-New Franklin Fire Station #2 on Sunday, October 24th from 2:00 - 4:00 P.M.

 

The Mayor appointed Karen Hackenberg to the Tudor Commission.

 

Since the culvert replacement, the detoured traffic has increased around Erie Avenue and Northwest Schools. It’s been suggested that we raise the speed limit on Kepler Road from Comet South to the Stark County line to 35mph. It is currently open for discussion.

 

It has been suggested to do the same for Brenner Road, although the Mayor is not in favor of this. Benner Road is Leaver Road in Stark County. Leaver Road in Stark County is 40 mph and is much too fast for that road. When you cross into New Franklin, the speed limit becomes 25 mph.

 

The Mayor read the Trick - or - Treat times for Manchester and the surrounding areas.

 

Boy Scout Troop 118 will be having its annual “All-You-Can-Eat” breakfast on Saturday, October 30, 2010 from 7:30 - 11:00 AM at the Manchester United Methodist Church.
