Arbor Day Ceremony April 27, 2019

ARBOR DAY CEREMONY – 2019

 The Village of Chagrin Falls would like to invite the community to the annual Arbor Day Ceremony on SATURDAY, APRIL 27th at 10:00 a.m. in Riverside Park on North Main Street.  Arbor Day is an international event held to commemorate the importance of trees in our communities.

This event will feature 100 red buckeye saplings to be given out during your Arbor Day festivities from CEI Forestry Services. An informative program will be given by Chagrin Falls Street Department and Shade Tree Commission on proper Tree Planting, Mulching and Girdling Roots.  The session will cover preparing the planting site, selecting the proper tree and shrubs for the proper planting area, and caring for your new plantings. We will go over mulching technics and girdled roots, what to do and not to do. Come rain or shine we will have a tent setup. All residents and interested persons are welcome to attend.

 

See you there!

North Main Bridge Project Status

At this time, it has been announced by the Cuyahoga County Department of Public Works that no physical work will begin on the North Main Street bridge replacement project in 2019.  The County is working with the Village to address logistical issues and revise project specifications prior to re-bidding the project later this year.  The earliest time that any work would actually begin would be at the start of 2020.

The Village is continuing to assess the retaining “wing wall” project adjacent to the bridge to determine if we will either move forward with the project this year or postpone it to coincide with the bridge project.  We will notify the community as soon as we have made a decision.

Thank you for your interest and patience regarding these projects.

NORTH MAIN STREET BRIDGE PROJECT UPDATE

NORTH MAIN BRIDGE PROJECT STATUS 3-14-2019
The Cuyahoga County Department of Public Works opened bids for the North Main Street Bridge Project on Wednesday, March 13, 2019. There was only one bidder and that bid was significantly over the county’s cost estimate and therefore cannot be accepted by the county.
We have been advised by the County that they are now analyzing the project specifications and that they intend to re-bid the project as soon as they complete their analysis.
They will be notifying the Village administration as soon as they have a firm plan moving forward.  This means that at this time, this project is postponed until further notice.  We will notify the community as soon as we have further information to report.
In regards to the Village project to rebuild the retaining  “wing walls” adjacent to the bridge along both Riverside and Bell Street parks, the Village had planned to perform this project alongside the County project of rebuilding the bridge.  We are now assessing the situation to determine if we will either move forward with the “wing wall” project as a standalone project or postpone it to coincide with the bridge project.  Again, we will notify the community as soon as we have further information to report.
Thank you for your interest and patience as we work through the process to get these projects underway.
