Serving a community of diverse neighborhoods, the employees of Olmsted Township will perform in a coordinated, collaborative, ethical and fiscally responsible manner to provide greater access to services, encourage a vibrant quality of life and create a sense of confidence and connection among residents and themselves.
Issue 1 – Township Safety Levy
Olmsted Township is noted as the 5th safest Community in the State of Ohio by Safewise. With a 14% increase in population over the past two years, and a 46% total increase since 2000, our safety services must grow. The last safety levy was passed 10 years ago.
Issue 1 will:
- Assist our Fire/EMS and Police in building and preparing for our future as our population grows.
- Provide services that our business community and families have come to expect.
- Replace aging capital equipment and personal protective gear.

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.
