New Leaf Collection Team On Second Pass Through Village


Leaves are being collected by a new machine this year.  The new trailer has an extended hose for street side collection, which makes it possible to operate with only two street department staffers instead of four, as a raking team is no longer required to move the leaves closer to the curb.

The leaf collection team is on its second pass through town, moving from the south end of the village to the north. The historic district was completed on Friday.

The village anticipates completing four passes of leaf collection through the village as long as  weather permits.  Last year, fair weather allowed for six passes.

Pedestrian Signalization To Allow Leading “Walk” Period Soon

The Village of Chagrin Falls will be implementing a pedestrian safety improvement project in the downtown business district.  This project involves upgrading traffic signals to improve visibility of pedestrians in the crosswalk, as well as reduce the conflict potential between pedestrians and motorists.

The signal reprogramming consists of providing the pedestrian with a six-to-eight second head start relative to motorists.  While motorists face a red light, the pedestrian is given the walk signal.  After the head start time, the light will then turn green for motorists.  The goal is to get pedestrians to be mid-way across the street in the crosswalk before traffic is given the green light to proceed.  This system has proven to improve pedestrian visibility and safety.

This signal programming will be installed at four intersections in the downtown district.  These include; North Main Street and Orange Street, North Main Street and Bell Street, North Main Street and Washington Street, and Franklin Street and Washington Street.

This project is scheduled to begin near the end of October and reach completion around the middle of November, 2017.  The project is funded entirely by the Cuyahoga County Supplemental Development Grant (Casino tax funds).

Cuyahoga Greenways Solicits Public Input On New Trail Development

From: Cuyahoga County Greenways

As County Planning and its partners Cleveland Metroparks and NOACA continue our work on the Cuyahoga Greenways plan, we wanted to update you on some of our recent achievements and upcoming events in the planning process. To date, we have successfully completed an analysis of the existing transportation network throughout the county, and established a project logo and brand development strategy.

As part of the public outreach program, we are gathering feedback through a series of online surveys. The first round of survey questions can be found at http://bit.ly/GreenwaysSurvey1 

Our Project Team is developing the proposed network of candidate routes to connect existing trails, parks, and points of interest throughout the neighborhoods of Cuyahoga County. We want to ensure these proposed trails consider your communities assets, challenges, and goals.

The candidate routes developed with input from various stakeholders have been recorded through an online mapping resource at https://arcg.is/uSTW .

Looking ahead, our next round of public meetings will be held on January 17th & 18th, 2018.  We’re counting on your residents to fully participate in the making of the Cuyahoga Greenways Plan.

Sincerely,
Glenn Coyne, FAICP
Executive Director, County Planning
On behalf of the Cuyahoga Greenways Team

The Cuyahoga Greenways Plan is funded by a Transportation for Livable Communities Grant from NOACA. Cuyahoga County Planning Commission, Cleveland Metroparks, several municipalities, and other entities have contributed matching funds to the project.

Request For Qualifications: Hydrogeologist Engineering Services

VILLAGE OF CHAGRIN FALLS

REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS (RFQ)

ENGINEERING SERVICES – HYDROGEOLOGIST

STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS DUE: NOON, NOVEMBER 10, 2017

 

The Village of Chagrin Falls is accepting Requests for Qualifications (RFQ) from qualified consultants to provide Hydrogeological Engineering Services to analyze existing ground water supplies and assist with water supply decisions.

BACKGROUND

The Village of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, is 2.1 square miles in area located 18 miles east of the City of Cleveland, at the eastern edge of Cuyahoga County. The Chagrin River flows through the Village from the northeast to the southwest. The downtown and historic residential area of Chagrin Falls sits on a gently sloping terrace between the elevations of 890 and 930 feet above sea level. The north residential side of the Village is situated on rolling hills and the steeper slopes of the river valley at elevations between 1070 and 1120 feet. The population at the last census was 4,113. The water department serves parts of surrounding communities and has 2456 service connections.

The Village of Chagrin Falls presently obtains its water supply from two sources to meet the average daily demand of about 730,000 gpd (97.6 MCFD). The Village owned source is the Franklin Street well field that supplies about 30% of the total demand. The two wells were drilled in the mid 1960s and pump directly into the distribution system after treatment with chlorination and a poly/orthophosphate blend. The second source was brought online in 1987 via a bulk water contract with the City of Cleveland which supplies about 70% of demand. For redundancy, the Cleveland water supply is connected to the Village owned distribution system at two locations at the extreme south and north of the Village system.

The Cleveland Water contract requires the Village to purchase 500,000 gallons per day (66.8 MCFD) on a monthly average billed at a rate of $35.76 per MCF. The Village has renegotiated the contract to phase in a 38% reduction in the minimum purchase to 14,800MCF per year by the year 2021. As this reduced minimum purchase is phased in the Village will rely more heavily on the wells. Village analysis shows that by 2020 the well field production will be marginal.

PROJECT

The selected consultant will provide hydrogeological engineering services to the Village. The final work product will be a hydrogeologic engineering study of the ground water supply for the Village and recommend strategies for providing an adequate supply into the future. Continue Reading →
