On Tuesday December 12th, history was made as the Suffield Township Board of Trustees held their first regularly scheduled trustee meeting in the confines of the spacious Fire House Community Room.  Trustee Jeff Eldreth opened his part of the meeting by saying, "I'm just excited to be here".  He honored outgoing trustee Dave Vartenuk by acknowledging Vartenuk's integral part in getting the Fire House and the Community Room built.  The decision to place a levy on the ballot in order to build the facility was during the tenures of trustees Dave Polen, Ron Mishler and Dave Vartenuk.   In all, the event was witnessed by seven hearty soles who braved the snow covered roads and the 17 degree temperature.  

Aside from the excitement of the new surroundings, the meeting produced little entertainment, though Vickie Vincent did bring Christmas cookies.  A discussion on the progress on demolishing the house at 1560 Carriage House Drive took place.  While the zoning inspector was absent due to illness, trustee Dave Vartenuk said that the latest plan from the county prosecutor's office is to have a meeting with the new owners of the property, along with officials from the county building department, county health department and the Suffield Fire Department.  This meeting, yet to be scheduled, will take place at the site.  A Carriage House Drive neighbor Bernie Trares said that the new owners have mowed the property and have placed "No Trespassing" signs on the property.   

Tom Calcei reported that all is well at the Fire Department.  He also said that the ambulance that is in need of a new paint job is now being worked on.  A rental substitute ambulance should be here and available shortly.  He also said that  Christmas With Santa was a very successful event this past Sunday evening. 

The trustees made another slight change to their meeting schedule.  The second meeting of this month will now be held on Friday December 29th at 7:00 PM.  This is a change from the original time set several weeks ago.

Jeff Eldreth welcomed Ed Vincent back after his recent bout with cancer.  After extensive treatment, Ed has responded well and is now cancer free. The crowd erupted in applause after the announcement. The trustees will meet again on Friday December 29th at 7:00 PM.  The Zoning Commission will meet on Wednesday December 13th at 7:00 PM.  Now that the Administration Building has been leased out, ALL township meetings will be held in the Fire House Community Room.

BZA Approves Variances To Allow Home Addition And New Garage

The Suffield Township Board of Zoning Appeals met on Tuesday September 4th at 8:00 PM in the Suffield Community Room (1256 Waterloo Road) to hear a request for a variance from Paul Galloway of 557 Waterloo Road.  He wants to enlarge his home beyond what is allowable in its zoning district, which is actually industrial. The addition would also be too close to the roadway.   Galloway presented his case and answered the questions of the Board.  Owner of the property surrounding the Galloway lot is Warner Hughes, a former Suffield trustee of 13 years, who spoke on the history of the property and voiced his opinion that winters in Ohio are rough and the Galloways could certainly use a two car garage.  Andy Grow motioned that the variances be granted.  It was seconded by David "Pete" Einloth and then passed by a 5-0 vote.

License Plate Renewals

When buying new license plates, or renewing them, be sure the registrar at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles knows that you live in Suffield Township.  If you simply state your address as Mogadore, the road tax funds, which should go to Suffield Township, will go to Mogadore Village, due to your zip code.  Keep your tax money in the township!

Wingfoot Lake State Park is Suffield's only park.   It was opened by the Ohio State Parks & Recreation Department in 2009.  Goodyear had operated the park since the 1960's as a private playground for its employees and for corporate retreats.  As the company footprint grew smaller in the Akron area Goodyear decided to close the park in 2006.  To learn more about the park, such as rental of the facilities, visit the park's website:  http://parks.ohiodnr.gov/wingfootlake
