UPCOMING TOWNSHIP EVENTS & NOTICES:

NEW!†††† Jones Road Bridge Update

 

I spoke with the Lorain County Engineer's office yesterday. The bridge was originally scheduled to be completed by now, but apparently there were some significant snags.

There were several factors that ganged up and worked against us. They had trouble getting easements signed and that delayed things 4 to 6 months. ODOT initiated a bridge replacement program across the state that will replace 200 bridges in the next two years. That booked up all of the contractors for the near future.

The project was re-bid and the new bids are due to the Engineer's office in July. There is a small chance that it will be awarded and completed in 2015. The projected completion date is now July 1, 2016.

Lorain County recently implemented a wireless emergency notification system (WENS), which is sometimes referred to as a reverse 911.With this, the county, or any political subdivision (City, Township, etc.) can issue warnings or emergency information, such as weather alerts, boil alerts, and so forth.It should prove to be a useful tool that can disseminate information to a target group very quickly.

 

The system can contact you via telephone, cell phone, (Voice or text), or email, whichever you choose.

††††††††††††††† Penfield is part of K.E.Y.

 

Many of you may have seen the news release about K.E.Y. (Keystone Empowers You).The goal of the KEY Collaborative is to increase access to physical activity and healthy foods leading to a Keystone School District community where the healthy choice is the easiest choice for seniors, school-aged children, parents, adults, and individuals who work for a Keystone community employer.

While it references the Keystone School District, itís only connection is that it is using the school district to define the geographical area that the collaboration entails.

Some of the projects that stem from KEY, that you might notice, will be healthier choices at the concession stands and improvements to the Penfield walking trail at the recreation park.
