Repairs Planned For Old “Mario’s Building”

The former Mario's Salon building sits on the side of the upper falls in Chagrin Falls, OH. I am pleased to announce that we met this morning with the owners of the old Mario’s building at 15 Bell Street and next week they will be resubmitting plans to renew previous approvals by the ARB and BZA for renovation of the structure. Their plans propose retaining a majority of the existing structure and replacing the sections of the building that are structurally unsound in a manner consistent with the historical nature of the building.  They emphasized to us their intention was to respect the historic appearance of the structure. Assuming their plans are approved by the ARB, they intend to be in construction this summer with a Fall 2016 opening planned.
Preserving this important and highly visible historic structure while returning it to the economic base of the village is a win-win for all concerned.
Mayor Bill Tomko
