Bike-A-Palooza is a bike rodeo for students K-6 grade. The Chagrin Falls Police Department runs the rodeo stations which incorporate different bike safety skills like navigating around pot-holes, signaling a turn, and exiting a drive into the street. The event include free bike inspections by Geiger’s Ski & Sport Haus, helmet fitting and give-away, bike registration, free food and safety games. Safe Routes Chagrin supports the event with promotion, prizes and volunteers along with the CFIS Bike Club.

Additional Pedestrian Crossing Signs

At its last meeting, the Safety Committee discussed the idea of putting Pedestrian Crossing Signs in additional intersections around town. The perception of the Committee is that the presence of these signs both alerts drivers to the fact that a crosswalk is there and generally results in slowing drivers down. Both of these make Chagrin Falls more pedestrian friendly and safe.

In the next couple of weeks, our Superintendent of Streets, Rob Jamieson, and Council President Karl Maersch are going to be looking at some potential locations for these additional signs. If you have ideas on intersections or crosswalks that you think would be a good candidate, please contact us.
