Radar Monitoring Of Speed On Local Streets Underway

As a part of our ongoing efforts to ensure traffic and pedestrian safety, we have acquired a concealable traffic monitor to supplement the pneumatic tube unit that had been in use. The new unit is invisible to drivers and therefore eliminates any concern that driver behavior is changed by the presence of the detector. Results from this street monitoring will set location and time priorities for enhanced speed enforcement.

The program will survey traffic on streets with heavy use first, and then assess side streets. Each location will be monitored for a full week. The results of  recent tests are posted below.

If you wish to request your street be monitored or to volunteer your property as a location to place the unit, please contact Chief Dacek at Adacek@chagrinfallsPD.com.

Pam Spremulli Named To Arts Commission

Spring Featured Artist Pam SpremulliPam Spremulli, an area artist, has been named to the Arts Commission.

She will replace Jean Hood, who served on the commission for many years before moving out of the village.

Here is a little information about Pam.

Artist Biography

Graphic Illustrator Pam Spremulli, shares her “cheerfully optimistic” view of life in her artwork with striking and colorful images.  If she makes someone happy she has done her job.

Spremulli, accredited by the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA, is best known for her award-winning (GOLD Mom’s Choice award for distinctive Illustrations) children’s book Letter Birds (PublishingWorks, Inc.) along with her unique interpretations of architectural landmarks from New England to New Orleans. Pam takes familiar images and manipulates color in a way that’s eye catching and engaging. She finds herself very much at home with her subject and instinctively draws the viewers eye to key points that might go unnoticed with more traditional forms of art.

Her artwork has won numerous awards and is privately collected both domestically and internationally.

“The mouse is my brush, the monitor my canvas” is how she describes her technique, “and not to forget a little dab of fun!”

She continues to show her work in galleries in New York along with  several other galleries in and around Cleveland, Ohio. Each summer Spremulli partakes in the Visual Arts of Chautauqua Institution (VACI) Membership Exhibit at Follwer-Kellogg Art Center in Chautauqua Institution, New York. She is also a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and Northern Ohio Illustrator’s Society (NOIS).

Her second children’s book  WOOF! (PublishingWorks, Inc.) was released in 2011.

Pam was born and raised in the Chautauqua Lake Region of Western, New York, spent many years in Boston, Massachusetts, and now resides in Chagrin Falls, Ohio with her husband and two daughters.
