On Tuesday March 8th the Suffield Township Board of Trustees met to conduct business.  The meeting was shorter than the usual evening meetings, just 42 minutes in duration.  During the session, the trustees passed a resolution to send forward to the County Commissioners a recommendation that the four Suffield-based businesses that have a tax abatement agreement with the county be allowed to continue getting those abatements in 2022.  The Tax Incentive Review Council had met earlier that same day and had reviewed the facts and figures and ultimately decided to recommend that trustees pass the resolution for continued abatements.  Jared Phillip and Jeff Eldreth voted for the resolution.   Tom Calcei was absent.  The businesses that are affected are:  Bednar Properties, G.P. Tree Service, Hamrick Manufacturing and Oldcastle Lawn & Garden.

The trustees also passed a resolution allowing the fiscal officer to transfer $32,202 from the Debt Fund to the Road and Bridge Fund in order to make the first payment on the township's brand new dump truck.  Chief Bob Rasnick was on hand to give the monthly Fire Department report.  In February the department handled 69 calls for service and conducted the normal five continuing education classes.  Zoning Inspector Adam Bey said that the resident at Kapity Drive and Bolender Road has not cleaned up his yard as verbally ordered to do so.  The trustees decided that Bey should send that resident a warning letter, which is generally a precursor to prosecution.  Bey also said that the property at 1181 State Route 43 continues to be a problem.  On March 16, 2021 the Board of Zoning Appeals gave the property owner one year to bring the property into compliance with the conditions set forth to operate a trash service there.  They have not complied, so a hearing has been tentatively set for March 16th.

Trustee Chairman Jeff Eldreth said that the township will advertise for bids on road materials needed for this year's road operations.  A Notice Letter to Bidders and a Bid Sheet Form will be published on this website in the next several days.  Bids will be opened at the trustee meeting on Tuesday April 26th.

The trustees meet again on Tuesday March 22nd at 7:00 AM.  The Zoning Commission will meet on Wednesday March 9th at 7:00 PM.  No Board of Zoning Appeals hearings have been set.  Both meetings are at the Suffield Community Room, 1256 Waterloo Road.  All are welcome.

 Field's Ellen Arena Honored With Community Service Award

It took only fifty years of service to the Field High School, but scorer/bookkeeper Ellen Arena finally received recognition for her many years of service to the Field community.  She was awarded a plaque by the Greater Akron Basketball Coaches Association at the annual boys All-Star games played at Coventry High School on Tuesday March 15th.  It was a fitting end to the basketball season, but Arena plans to come back in the spring and help out with the scoring and books.  Thanks for your many years of service to the Field High School athletics program.

 

BZA Okays Variances At Pony Express And 1701 Randolph Road

The Suffield Township Board of Zoning Appeals passed by a 5-0 vote a conditional use permit to allow Mark Davis the ability to use his property at 1395 State Route 43 as a U-Haul business.  Some limitations were attached to the agreement.

Scott Stayer requested a variance to allow use of 60 foot access strips on the property at 1701 Randolph Road.  This would allow the back portion of the 71 acre property to be divided into lots.  The access strips would keep these lots from being "land locked".  The variance was passed 3-2 after a number of neighbors had some objections.

Wingfoot Lake State Park

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
