Imagination Station Project Needs Volunteers

Come on out to the Early Childhood Center on Fitch Road this Saturday and help a local BOY SCOTT earn his EAGLE SCOUT rank!!

The build date for the project has been scheduled for Saturday, October 20th, and we are very much so in need of volunteers. There will be two shifts. One from 8am to 12pm, and one from 1pm to 5pm. We are looking for roughly twenty people for each shift, however the more the merrier. We are in dire need of skilled craftsmen, carpenters, construction workers, and so forth. If you are able to donate your time, and possibly the use of your tools, we would be very grateful. We need as much labor and tools as we can get, but expertise is priceless. The tools we are in need of are things such as table saws, nail guns, ladders, hammers, drills, sawhorses, etc. Please contact me at: jbrancatelli@cox.net to commit to helping and which shift you would be interested in attending. Keep in mind you are not required to stay for any certain amount of time, this is just the way the workflow is being divided.
The Early Childhood Center PTA will be providing food and drink for both shifts, bathrooms and parking will be available at the school, and multiple first aid kits will be on site.
Our goal is to complete the build in one day, dividing the workload into the two shifts. If we are unable to accomplish this goal, we are setting Saturday, October 27th as the final workday. This day is also going to be the backup build date in case something goes wrong with material shipment or things of that nature. If something of this nature looks to be happening, I will attempt to get the word out within two days of the 20th.

Schady Road Culvert

Weight Limit Signage has been posted on the Schady Road (County Road) culvert between Falls Pointe Dr. and Lakeview Dr. due to a deteriorating culvert pipe. What does this mean for the average vehicle? The average car or SUV weighs between three and five thousand pounds, which would make safe travel over the culvert. Examples of vehicles that would possibly be affected would be: Class A and Class B vehicles (buses, dump trucks, tractor trailer) .

The culvert is on the fast track to be replaced through Cuyahoga County Public Works. Schedule and timeline are yet to be determined.
