Rocky River Master Plan Public Meeting #3 Results Report

The third and final Public Meeting for the Rocky River Master Plan was held on October 18, 2017, in Memorial Hall, at the Don Umerley Civic Center. Approximately 45 residents, business owners, and public officials were in attendance. Following the Public Meeting, materials were posted online to allow additional residents to read the materials, comment on them, and provide feedback.

During the Public Meeting, representatives from County Planning gave a presentation on results from the second Public Meeting and introduced the implementation tables covering potential partners, estimated costs, and project timelines for implementation of the Core Projects and Goals. At the end of the presentation, County Planning asked the attendees for comments and feedback about their priorities for implementation of Core Projects and Goals.

Around the room were boards featuring the Core Projects and Goals, associated images, and information on the feasibility and impact of each project and goal. Residents were given a handout on which to rank their top three priority Core Projects and top three priority Goals after reviewing the boards. Comments could be left on any of the boards as well as the handout.

Attendees were also asked to provide feedback about their preferred development scenario for the Reimagining Marion Ramp Core Project. A board was set up for residents to vote on two development options for the Marion Ramp. The first option described repairing or replacing the ramp, while the second option described removing the ramp. These options were accompanied by additional information about traffic impacts and costs associated with both options.

This Results Report outlines the implementation priority ranking for the Core Projects and Goals, and common themes derived from the Public Meeting and online survey comments.

NOVEMBER 2017 UPDATE

ROCKY RIVER MASTER PLAN

WELCOME!

Thank you for your interest in the Rocky River Master Plan! The City of Rocky River and County Planning will be publishing a periodic newsletter in order to keep residents up-to-date on what has been and what remains to be accomplished in the Master Plan process. We encourage all residents to participate in the process by attending future meetings and contributing thoughts and feedback. For the most up to date information, visit the plan website at www.countyplanning.us/rockyriver

WHAT IS A MASTER PLAN?

A Master Plan outlines a community’s vision for the future and describes specific actions that the community can take to realize that vision. Topics addressed range from transportation, housing, and economic development to parks and recreation, business district development, and more.

PLAN TIMELINE

The planning process is made up of six phases:

1.  Conducting a community survey (complete)

2.  Analyzing current conditions (complete)

3.  Establishing a community vision (complete)

4.  Identifying policies and action steps to achieve the vision (complete)

5.  Identifying priorities for implementation (complete)

6.  Drafting a final document (underway)

Thus far, we have collected public input via a community survey, three Public Meetings, three online surveys, and a number of meetings with the Project Team and Working Group. We are using this information to assemble a Draft Master Plan document that combines the information assembled from each phase of the planning process.

The Community Vision document outlined the direction Rocky River residents would like to see the City develop.

The Policies document consisted of overarching Community Vision statements, Core Projects for major physical improvements in the City, and Goals and Actions for accomplishing the community’s vision, serving as the foundation for developing a guide for implementation.

In the Implementation phase, we worked with residents to prioritize Core Projects and Goals. Individual actions were tied to partners, timeframes, and estimated costs to ensure that responsible parties are aware of what is required to accomplish a project or goal.   

PUBLIC MEETING #3 RESULTS

The third Public Meeting held on October 18, 2017, covered results from the second Public Meeting and policy recommendations for Core Projects and Goals based on the community’s vision. It was attended by over 40 residents who submitted approximately 71 written comments and cast 245 votes for their highest priorities for Core Projects and Goals Implementation. Furthermore, a post-meeting online survey was taken by 104 people which resulted in 76 individual comments and approximately 687 votes for implementation priorities.

Comments were categorized and summarized to reveal common trends among the responses. These themes will be described in a Results Report that will be posted on the plan website in the coming weeks.

PUBLIC FEEDBACK:   TOP RATED PROJECTS & GOALS

A majority of residents were in favor of all Core Projects and Goals, however, County Planning asked residents to rate the projects that were the most important for implementation first. The top two Core Projects and the top two Goals are as follows:

The “Linda Street Development” Core Project proposed as a Pedestrian Promenade with angled, on-street parking. It could include phased-in new development possibilities, outdoor seating, and enhanced infrastructure. A total of 70 votes by respondents rated this Core Project as a high priority for implementation making it the highest rated Core Project.

Moreover, residents have stated that they would like stronger pedestrian and bicycle paths to better access Downtown River, connections to Lakewood, parking accessibility, and continued growth, making Rocky River a gathering place that boasts small-town charm and character. Of the in-person and on-line votes for which Core Project was the most important, 58 total votes were received for the “Downtown Parking and Development” Core Project, making it the second most important Core Project that should be implemented.

Similarly, improved streetscapes and enhanced parks and public spaces were the two most important goals to the public. The “Improved Streetscape and Repair Infrastructure” Goal had a total of 103 votes as residents feel quality streets reflect the quality of the community.

Additionally, residents said they would like to see improvements to their parks to ensure they reflect the quality of the Rocky River community. That desire was reflected in the in-person voting at the Public Meeting and the voting results from the on-line survey. A total of 78 respondents rated the “Enhance Parks and Public Space” Goal as one of their top priorities for implementation.

NEXT STEPS

The comments submitted by residents are being used to update the recommended priorities in the Implementation document. County Planning will draft the Master Plan and present the document to the City in late 2017 or early 2018. Updates will be posted on the plan website:  www.countyplanning.us/rockyriver

The Policies document consists of overarching community Vision Statements, Core Projects for major physical improvements in the City, and Goals and Actions for accomplishing the community’s vision. It serves as the foundation for action.

 

In the upcoming Implementation phase, Core Projects and Goals will be prioritized and individual actions will be tied to partners, timeframes, and estimated costs to ensure responsible parties are aware of what is required to accomplish a project or goal.

 

PUBLIC MEETING #2 RESULTS

The second Public Meeting covered results from the first public meeting and policy recommendations for Core Projects and Goals based on the community’s vision. It was attended by over 80 residents who submitted approximately 140 written comments and placed hundreds of dots on the meeting’s demonstration boards. Furthermore, a post-meeting online survey was taken by 101 people which resulted in more than 450 individual comments.

 

Comments were categorized and summarized to reveal common trends among the responses. These themes will be described in a Results Report that will be posted on the plan website in the coming weeks.

 

ADDRESSING CONCERNS: HILLIARD BLVD ROAD DIET

The Hilliard Boulevard Road Diet Core Project outlined the potential to reduce the number of travel lanes on the portion of the road east of Wooster Road while creating space for new development opportunities, bike paths, and landscaping. Multiple options of what this might look like were provided. A small road diet showed two driving lanes with one center turning lane, while a large diet depicted two driving lanes.

 

Respondents valued additional landscaping and bike infrastructure along Hilliard Boulevard, and recognized that lane reductions would provide room for those features. However, there were concerns regarding the potential impact on traffic. The small road diet was preferred by the majority over the large diet. Based on this feedback, it is recommended that a traffic study be completed on the corridor before implementing any road diet.

Proposed Project: Hilliard Boulevard Small Road Diet

 

NEXT STEPS

The comments submitted by residents have been used to update the Core Projects and Goals. County Planning will present the updated projects and goals at the next Public Meeting for resident feedback and input on implementation priority. That meeting will take place October 18, 2017 at 6:30 PM in Memorial Hall (21016 Hilliard Boulevard). Monthly updates will be posted on the plan website: www.countyplanning.us/rockyriver

Healthy Rocky River: A Resolution to Change

Jane Reich

A new year always brings up excitement and energy to make changes. Whether it's saving money, watching less TV, losing weight, getting organized, quitting smoking, you name it; we often times set ourselves up for failure because we're more interested in the "concept" of making the change than we are in actually being committed to making changes. 

Join Ann Marie Hutchins, Certified Health and Wellness Coach with the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute to learn steps to making long-term, sustainable changes for many years to come!

Improvement and Enhancement of Bradstreet’s Landing Park

James Umerley

Introduction to Project:

A public meeting with the community was held on November 30th where three initial ideas for the improvement and enhancement of Bradstreet’s Landing were discussed.  The meeting generated discussion on the concepts and feedback was provided on how to move forward developing a single preferred concept. The feedback provided in the public forum, in addition to this public survey, will be used to create the preferred plan and long term vision which will guide future investment and volunteer efforts.  Your participation in the process is critical and highly appreciated.

The park is made up of six simple elements: the pier, the bridge, parking and vehicular circulation, restroom facility, Spencer Creek, and trails and open space.  The following concepts explore different approaches to reorganizing and improving these elements while integrating them with the site and existing park features.  No one solution is an exact fit at this point, but rather the ultimate plan will likely be a combination of aspects from each concept presented.  The following brief narratives highlight the inspiration and theme for each concept.  For more information on existing site conditions and the overall project, please click on the presentation link.  If you have any questions about the process or project, please reach out the Mary Kay at safetyservice@rrcity.com.  Thank you for your participation.

PowerPoint Presentation from Nov 30th Public Meeting

The three concept narratives that were shared at the public meeting (to gather public input and introduce potential concepts) are:

The Fleet

The Fleet is inspired by the unique story of Bradstreet’s Disaster and uses the physical design of the park to tell the narrative.  Park elements, including a restroom facility, boardwalks, seat walls, sidewalks, and plantings, are arranged to abstract the imagery of a fleet of boats and twist the orientation of the park to better integrate the creek, upland, and lakefront.  

The Wave

The Wave also explores the unique story of Bradstreet’s Disaster and the dynamic nature of Lake Erie.  The Wave takes many of the park’s current elements and reorganizes them into an improved lakefront experience while also engaging Spencer creek.  A sweeping lakefront boardwalk offers a dramatic experience of the lake while a curved wall envelopes a protected central lawn and tells the story of the park’s history.

The Tributary

The Tributary celebrates the connection of water found at Bradstreet’s Landing.  It tells a story of hydrology and sustainability.  Notably, a sweeping stormwater swale intercepts runoff infiltration and cleansing water before entering the stream and lake.  Parking is shifted to the southern half of the park and allows the pedestrian-focused lawn and plaza spaces push forward towards the lake.

Kindness Continues at Rocky River Public Library

James Umerley

Kindness Continues at Rocky River Public Library.

This is the final week of the Rocky River Public Library’s current project keeping focus on “choosing kind” as inspired by R.J. Palacio’s best-selling book Wonder. The library is seeking your assistance on behalf of four organizations this holiday season. Director Jamie L. Mason said, “We want to continue to think of others first and working with these organizations allows us that opportunity.” Head to the children’s area at the library to make hats for Fairview Hospital’s newborns.  While you are there create a holiday card for the USO of Northern Ohio to send to a veteran. Stop at the Christmas tree in their lobby to leave your donation of hats, gloves, scarves, and socks for distribution by Care On the Square.  Also, please consider donating full-sized toiletries of all kinds to assist the Rocky River Assistance Program. For more information on how you can help the library help others, call Rocky River Public Library at (440) 333-7610.

ROCKY RIVER UPDATE for November 17, 2017

James Umerley

 

REFUSE COLLECTION WILL NOT BE MADE ON THANKSGIVING.  Refuse collection will be delayed one day after Thursday, November 23rd (Thanksgiving).

 

ROCKY RIVER CONSTRUCTION UPDATE

 

Thank you for your patience as you travel in Rocky River as the following construction projects are ongoing or planned for the City of Rocky River during the 2017 construction season:

 

  • A repair of the section of westbound roadway on HILLIARD BOULEVARD east of Country Club Blvd. is scheduled for Monday, November 20th as weather allows. Hilliard Blvd. is a County route and paving is determined by the County; however, the City does make maintenance repairs to this road.  This repair site was an area where water main repair has concrete that has failed and will be replaced by the City as part of our maintenance efforts.

 

  • The fishing pier at Bradstreet’s Landing has been closed. An evaluation determined that repairs to the support structure of the pier are necessary.  Engineers have made a  technical review of the pier - particularly sections of the structure that have sustained varying levels of structural failure.  That report is under review and the in the upcoming weeks, the City will be receiving additional information regarding estimates for future action.  At this time the pier will remain closed.

 

  • Shoreland / East Shoreland and Wooster Crosswalk / Pedestrian Signal Upgrades: (County Supplemental) Grant funded improvements for better pedestrian safety is underway at this intersection - work will commence the week of November 20th.  Improvements will include improved pedestrian signals and pavement markings.  Please note:  the intersection has been evaluated by traffic engineers that have recommended moving the crosswalk to the north side of the Shoreland / Wooster intersection.  The engineer cites  pedestrian enhancement as one of the reasons for the new crosswalk location.  During construction, the City will keep the existing crosswalk configuration in operation.  The new crosswalk will not be operational until all pedestrian devices are installed and operational.  That fully operational period is dependent upon material availability and weather – which may be after the weather breaks in the spring.

 

  • WEST RIVER ESTATES: (All streets) A manhole replacement project has begun for structures / lids that are no longer functioning properly and will not open for maintenance or emergency service.  These manhole structures will be replaced and will have new concrete installed around them.  The project will also include replacement of the storm water catch basins with safer, updated grates.  This project also includes a new storm catch basin being installed on Stratford near Elmwood and a new sanitary sewer access manhole for the Civic Center / Ice Rink system at Hilliard Blvd. This project is anticipated to continue through the year as weather allows.

Please note:  the contractor has planned for all driveways to be free from any obstructions for the Thanksgiving holiday (Thursday, November 23, 2017).

 

  • LAKEVIEW / HAMPTON SEWER REPLACEMENT PROJECT (between Center Ridge and Hilliard ) AS CONSTRUCTION CONTINUES PLEASE EXPECT PERIODIC WATER OUTAGES – sections of water line are being replaced as they are in the direct path of the sewer replacement project. Thank you for your patience as these outages occur.

 

Leaf collection will be made on Fridays in this (Lakeview / Hampton) construction zone.  Please move leaves as close to the tree lawn as possible- you may not be able to get leaves on the tree lawn due to the materials being stored the sewer project.  City personnel will move the leaves from the sidewalk / tree lawn area to be collected as necessary.

 

Local traffic only / one-way detours are in place as follows: Hampton- northbound traffic only; Lakeview southbound traffic from Hilliard to Center Ridge and on Lakeview from Westway to Hilliard -northbound traffic only.  Lakeview / Hampton construction zone residents: please watch for flyers / notifications at your front door from the contractor regarding access to driveways, etc. throughout the construction project. 

 

  • PURNELL AND LAUREL WATER LINE REPLACEMENT: Landscape restoration for areas in work areas where necessary will be revisited in 2018. Additional paving repairs will be made on Laurel between Lakeview and Hampton in the spring.  Water line work requires warm weather temperatures; therefore, all work scheduled for 2018 will commence as weather allows.  This water line project is developed, specified and funded by the Cleveland Division of Water. Water main replacement will continue as weather permits in the spring for Laurel (from Hampton to Wooster) and for Purnell (Lakeview to Wooster).
