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
The historic Suffield Town Hall can be rented by residents and non-residents for various events.
