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

Thus far, we have collected public input via a community survey, our first and second of three Public Meetings, two online surveys, and a number of meetings with the Project Team and Working Group. We have used this information to assemble a Policies document that outlines action steps to achieving Rocky River’s desired future. 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

Also, parking on side streets adjacent to Hilliard will need to stay at least 20’ back from Hilliard as construction work will be occurring in the side street area (at crossing ramps), for milling and also for paving purposes. Please note that areas in the median, accessed for turn-through, will remain open as much as possible but may be closed for short periods during repair and paving work – the contractor will always have another, nearby turn-through section open and available for access. (*Only homeowners that need to park in the no-travel zone overnight due to apron construction will be permitted to park in the street.)

At the end of the project, the City will be installing stamped-concrete crosswalks at the Hilliard / Wagar intersection and at the crosswalk near Wildflower and the outdoor pool. Thank you for your patience during this important improvement project and for driving carefully in our construction zones.

ALSO ON HILLIARD: At the east end of Hilliard – just west of the Valley View intersection – there will be water line work in one lane in each westbound / eastbound lane.

Rocky River Police Facility Construction

James Umerley

The week of August 12th construction activities begin for the new Rocky River Police facility located at 21012 Hilliard Blvd., next to City Hall. Next week, asbestos will begin being removed from the interior of the existing building. Construction fencing will be installed and equipment trailers and storage units will be delivered. Also, tree removal will begin next week.

• The City of Rocky River had made a tree inventory and a risk assessment / site evaluation which includes each tree at our City Hall / Police construction area in 2017 and updated it in 2018. Based upon this inventory and International Society of Arboriculture (ISO) practices, we have determined that there are a number of trees that must be removed due to health, safety, welfare issues.

• Other trees must be removed for the construction of the new Police facility and for a required underground storm water management system. Over that storm water system a new parking area with ADA access to the front doors of City Hall will be installed. That construction and new landscaping is anticipated to be completed in the spring of 2021.

Our Police administrative office is temporarily located at 20325 Center Ridge Road (on the east side of Linden Road) which is open 24 hours - daily. The 9-1-1 system and our non-emergency number; 440-331-1234 are operational.

Thank you for your patience at City Hall during our new Police facility construction.

Bike to School 2019

James Umerley

Bike to School 2019 - Rocky River School District

Once again, the Rocky River City School District is participating in the Bike to School Challenge.

The Middle School challenge kicked off on Monday, May 6 and runs through Friday, May 24, 2019.

Kensington Intermediate School will participate from May 20 through May 24, 2019.

If you drive, please be aware that there will be more bicycle riders during school commute times, and with the nice weather season upon us more individuals will be riding bikes. Take the extra time to look for them, especially before turning right and driving through crosswalks. Watch for bicyclists when pulling onto a roadway from driveways, shopping centers, or other private property.

Bikes can operate on roadways or sidewalks in Rocky River. If a bicycle operator chooses to ride in the street, he or she must comply with all traffic laws, including riding with the flow of traffic, obeying traffic control devices and traffic lights, signaling intentions, and having proper lighting during restricted hours. If a bicycle rider chooses to ride on the sidewalk, he or she must comply with pedestrian traffic laws, like crossing at crosswalks and with traffic signals. Drivers of motor vehicles must stay at least three feet from bicycles when passing in the roadway.  It is strongly recommended that bicyclists always wear a helmet when riding. 

 

Spring Clean Up Leaf Collection

James Umerley

The City of Rocky River will collect leaves from the tree lawn for one week only. The week of May 6th leaf-trucks will collect leaves from the tree lawn. After May 10th leaves must be placed into grass bags for collection at the tree lawn until leaf season begins this fall. Grass, twigs and branches are always placed into grass bags. Large amounts of branches and twigs must be cut into 4' lengths and tied into a bundle for collection. Thank you for taking the time to assist the City in maintaining efficient yard waste collections.

The City will plan on an annual, 'spring clean up' the first full week of May. Don't forget to check the web site for hazardous waste collection dates. Thank you.

Library Trustee Vacancy

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

James Umerley

 

 

NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE BACK DAY

SATURDAY, APRIL 27

 

Residents can drop off old prescription drugs in the Police Department lobby

21012 Hilliard Boulevard, Rocky River

 

Rocky River residents can bring their solid prescription medicines to the lobby of the Police Department, where the prescription drug drop box is located, at any time, 24/7.  No information is required of the person dropping off the medicine. The police department cannot accept needles or liquids, but all other forms of prescription medications can be accepted. The department asks that labels on the bottles be removed or names of persons on the labels be marked out. If you have any questions, please contact the Rocky River Police Department at (440) 331-1234.

 

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.2 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet. The DEA's Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.

WOOSTER ROAD 
SEWER REPAIRS – PAVING PROJECT

Currently, repairs to the Wooster Road sewers are being completed between Riverview and Detroit Road. Once sewer repairs are completed, a paving project will begin from north of Scenic (near Heinen’s) to Center Ridge. First, the road will be milled (top layer ground off) and an intermediate layer of pavement will be installed to protect the sub-street. After the installation of the intermediate layer of asphalt – road repairs will be completed which will include improvements at sidewalk crossing ramps at side street intersections. Once all repairs and concrete work is complete, the final layer of asphalt will be applied with street markings to follow. The paving schedule depends on weather conditions and is anticipated to continue through the summer.

ERIEWOOD WATER LINE 
The water main line will be replaced on Eriewood. This work will require temporary water service lines being installed for each residence. Materials and equipment will be delivered and stored on the street including temporary water service. The temporary water service will not be used until testing by the City of Cleveland Division of Water is complete. The work is also weather dependent.

PAVING PREVIEW

The City of Rocky River with the cooperation of Cuyahoga County will pave Hilliard Boulevard (a county route) from Lakeview to River Oaks in 2019 and from River Oaks to the Westlake corporation line in 2020. Work is anticipated to begin in mid-summer and continue through this fall and then resume in spring, 2020.
