SAVINGS AND LOAN BUILDING RELOCATION PROJECT
NOTICE OF BUILDING MOVE
RE-SCHEDULED TO FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2022
Due to rainy weather conditions, the move day has been re-scheduled.
On June 13, 2022, Village Council authorized the Mayor to accept a donation from Mark Milstein for the historic Bank Building currently located at 35 Hall Street. It will be relocated to the Evergreen Hill Cemetery for use as an office. This building was determined to be historically significant by the Village’s historical preservation consultant, Perspectus Architecture. Originally constructed downtown for the Chagrin Falls Savings and Loan Company in 1921, it was moved around 1934 to the current location. The Village is commencing with the building relocation.
DATE OF MOVE: The move day is re-scheduled for FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2022. Move preparations are re-scheduled for Thursday, September 29.
MOVING ROUTE: The move will start on Hall Street, traveling east to South Franklin Street and continue south to the destination of Evergreen Hill Cemetery. The site location is adjacent to the cemetery maintenance building just south of Rocker Street.
TIME OF MOVE: The move will begin around 10 AM and should conclude by 12 NOON.
STREET PARKING: On-Street parking will not be permitted via the travel route along Hall Street and South Franklin Street on Thursday, September 29 and Friday, September 30. Signs will be posted.
TRAFFIC: During the moving process, traffic will be temporarily restricted along the moving route. Traffic can utilize adjacent streets as a temporary detour. Patience is appreciated.
SPECTATORS: Spectators are welcome to watch the building move process from the sidewalks on the route. Additional restrictions may be made by moving company staff or police personnel as the situation dictates.
This is an exciting project that will provide a new office and meeting space at the Evergreen Hill Cemetery while preserving a unique structure significant to the history of the Village.
