Bell Street and Walters Road Proposed Stop Sign

The Village Safety Committee (Angela DeBernardo, Nancy Rogoff and Erinn Grube) unanimously recommended the Village move forward with legislation to add a pedestrian crosswalk and a third stop sign to the 3-way intersection  at the Bell and Walters intersection during a meeting earlier this summer. The Safety Committee will meet Monday, September 10 at 6pm to review the legislation and vote if it should be recommended to Council. Residents are welcome to come and speak at the Safety Committee meeting regarding this legislation. 

This legislation stems from a request by Bell Street residents asking for the Bell and Walters intersection to become a 3-way stop in order to:

  1. Connect the new Walters Road sidewalks to the rest of the Village
  2. Provide safe pedestrian crossing of Bell Street in a location that is likely to be used 
  3. Allow Bell Street residents to safely use their right turn signal when turning into their driveways

CHAGRIN FALLS SERVICE DEPARTMENT

2018-2019 FALL NEWSLETTER

 

BRUSH COLLECTION

The Village of Chagrin Falls provides brush and tree limb collection through our refuse collection hauler, Kimble Company. Kimble will collect your brush and tree limbs on your regular refuse collection day when tied in bundles weighing no more than 50 pound each or less. Small amounts of loose material can be placed in your refuse cart. The Village does not offer a chipping service.

LEAF COLLECTION

The Village of Chagrin Falls offers leaf collection during the fall only. No spring collection is provided. Chagrin Falls Street Department typically begins annual leaf pick-up the second week of October and completes the program in late November weather permitting. Crews start at the south end of town and work towards the north end. Leaves should be piled in long windrows within 4 feet of the curb on the tree lawn wherever possible. On streets with ditches, leaves should be raked as close to the road as possible in windrows, but not blocking the ditch. Leaves should not be raked into the street as they will cause drainage problems or will be pushed off if we have snow, Branches, twigs, and flower cuttings must not be put in the leaf piles as they will clog up the vacuum equipment and slow down the pick-up considerably.

MAILBOXES

Wood mailbox enclosures rot over time and become weak. “Step 2” mailboxes become brittle in the cold weather. Tell your private snow plow driver not to push snow against or your drive. When the Village plows come by it can shift the pile and cause damage to your mailbox and post. Homeowners are advised to keep the mailbox assembly in good condition. The force of the snow and ice thrown from the Village plow truck contributes largely to the damage. The Village is not liable from snow and ice coming off a plow and damaging a mailbox.

TRASH CANS & TOTES

Weekly trash pickup containers must be placed to the side of your driveway. Handles should face your house. Do not place containers in the roadway, cul-de-sacs or blocking a sidewalk.

SNOWPLOWING

The Village of Chagrin Falls and its Service Department takes great pride in keeping our roadways clear and safe for the winter season. The Service Department will plow and salt in a priority system. Plowing of primary roads will be addressed first, then secondary roads will be plowed and salted as the driver’s route dictates. Plowing of cul-de-sacs will be addressed once the primary and secondary roads are clear and safe.

No person shall sweep, shovel or pile or, being the owner, occupant or person having care of any building or lot of land bordering any street, sidewalk, alley or other public place, permit or cause the sweeping, shoveling of piling of any snow, ice, leaves, branches, twigs, brush or grass upon any street, alley or public place.
