Message from Mayor Blackwell


We are now in the month of August and summer is already beginning to turn the corner. School supply sales are in newspaper sales ads and supplies are

stocked on shelves in discount and drug stores; families are still planning and taking vacations before school starts in the next several weeks; the days are shorter and by now the Senior Center’s remodeling project is all done!


It has been reported that the hottest days of the summer are recorded in August, but we have already had some very hot days in the month of July. The City will end the Summer of 2017 with 2 Music-in-the-Park dates August 8th and August 29th, the second date has been rescheduled with the Brian Papesh Band from the July event that was canceled due to weather. The construction of a Pocket Park at the Maple Heights Historical Society ,which will improve upon the existing landscaping, add seating and lighting to the lot made possible by a grant from the Akron Cleveland Association of Realtors (ACAR).


I certainly hope that you all have enjoyed this summer, spent happy times with family and friends, and are in good health and spirit.
