        Fall – the Most Beautiful Time of the Year

             The signs of the fall season are all around us.  Football games are underway, the leaves are starting to turn color and the nighttime air is beginning to cool down.  Crisp, cool autumn days are here!

            Autumn brings finality to some things and that is true about City programs and services as well.  Our 1.5 million gallon water tower is now on line and operable.  Our road pavement program for the year is finalized and the Fall Brush Pick Up program will conclude soon with leaf pickup following.

            Construction on our new high school continues at a rapid pace as workers continue to take advantage of the good construction weather.  Planning is underway for the Frost Road Corridor improvements, which are scheduled to begin in 2016. The first phase includes both ends of Frost Road -- the intersections of Frost and Rt. 43 as well as I-80/I-480 and Frost Road.   When completed, these improvements, together with the extension of Philipp Parkway, will greatly enhance traffic flow.  Planning and design work also continues for Route 303 and Aurora Hudson Road is scheduled to be paved in spring 2016.

          We kicked off our S.M.A.R.T. Program (Streetsboro Manufacturing and Related Trades) in August with three new companies joining our collaboration with the Streetsboro School District and six manufacturers.   In addition to Automated Packaging, Viking Forge, Selas, Delta Systems, Soft Lite and Permco, we welcomed Step2, Aurora Plastics and The Technology House.  These partnerships will provide excellent guidance for the High School’s S.T.E.M.classes and potential internships for our local students.

                 Mark your calendars now for Trunk or Treat on October 21st and don’t miss the Trick or Treat Trot on October 29th.  Check out the Parks and Recreation Program for additional details on these fun events.    

           Enjoy the splendor of color that only occurs during this beautiful fall season in Ohio and don’t forget to shop locally to support our local Chamber of Commerce members.
