2018 City-Wide Sidewalk Program

Proposed Construction: May 2018 - July 2018
The Sidewalk Program replaces sidewalks that have an offset of 1" or more and are determined to be City responsibility. The City takes responsibility for sidewalk repair for damage associated with City-owned utility failures or damage from street tree roots. To determine City responsibility, the Public Works Department performs both a visual inspection and a video/dye testing inspection of the sewers. After the inspections, the location is determined to either be homeowner or City responsibility. In addition to the replacement program, the Service Dept. performs sidewalk concrete leveling city-wide throughout the summer months.

The work being performed in 2018 is for the locations determined to be City responsibility from 2017 inspections.

If you want to report a sidewalk concern to determine if it is City or homeowner responsibility, please contact the Service Dept. at 330-963-6212. An inspection will be performed and if determined to be City responsibility, it will be included in future year maintenance programs.

2018 Roadway Striping Project
Proposed Construction: July 2018
This project consists of re-painting existing traffic lane lines, stop bars, crosswalks, lane arrows, and other pavement markings throughout the City.

Additionally, the city will be re-striping the Darrow Rd./Glenwood Dr. Roundabout in Spring of 2018 when temperatures allow. Additional information on this project will be in future newsletters and posted on the Construction Update page at Construction Updates
