The New Year came blowing into Suffield like a lion a couple weeks ago. Some of the coldness in the air abated, but some of the chilling effects of the past week persisted as the Suffield Township Board of Trustees met on January 9th before a crowd of about twelve.  Mark Russell of the Ellerhorst & Russell Insurance came to the meeting to provide trustees with information on this year's casualty insurance.  The trustees voted to reduce the speed limit on Rhodes Avenue from 55 MPH to 25 MPH.  This vote followed permission from the county and was enacted after a suggestion from Suffield Elementary principal Shawn Bookman.  The speed limit change affects Rhodes Avenue from Waterloo Road to State Route 224.

Since the move of township meetings at the beginning of December 2017 from the old Administration Building to the present location, a question has arisen on what exactly to call the new location.  For several years, this meeting room was known as the Fire House Community Room.  It appears that the new name of the meeting hall will be the "Suffield Community Room".  With this in mind, the trustees have embarked on a project to put up new signs on both State Route 43 and Waterloo Road to direct persons to this location.  Of course, this same location is also the new home to the offices of the Fiscal Officer and the Zoning Inspector, thus another bridge to be crossed.  Thus, how should the signs on the building be worded so that people would know that the community room and the administrative offices are within the same building.  While no final decision was accorded this date, the trustees plan to have sign-maker Craig Lemasters come to a trustee meeting next month to discuss what types of signs are available.  They will then decide on the exact verbiage to be used.

The Trustees next meet on Tuesday January 23rd at 7:00 AM.  The Zoning Commission meets on Wednesday January 10th at 7:00 PM for its Re-Organizational Meeting and its regular meeting.  No Board of Zoning Appeals hearings are scheduled.

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
