Public Meeting - Alum Creek Park Athletic Field - Draft Design Presentation - Wednesday, Dec. 7th

The Alum Creek Park Athletic Field - Draft Design will be presented at a public meeting on Wednesday, December 7th at 6pm at Bexley City Hall.  The draft design (see below), developed by Mark A. Schieber Associates, LLC, was based off the Alum Creek Park Plan developed through a public process by the firm MKSK in 2014.  As we are nearing the final stages of the planning process before ground breaks, we continue to look to the community for feedback so that we can develop the park that best meets the needs of our residents.  

At the public meeting on December 7th, residents will have the opportunity to review the draft design and provide as we work to finalize the design and more forward with the project.  Please spread the word to neighbors, friends, and family about the public meeting as this design should reflect the needs and wants of the community.  

The Recreation and Parks Department will also hold a separate open house on Saturday, December 17th from 9-10am inside a heated tent on the field next to the Community Garden just north of Ferndale and Mayfield.  Doughnuts and coffee will be provided.  Residents will have the opportunity to review the draft design and provide any feedback/suggestions.

  • Open House - Saturday, December 17th from 9-10am in a heated tent on the field next to the Community Garden just north of Ferndale and Mayfield.  (Coffee and doughnuts will be provided)

Bexley's Hands Free Ordinance Now In Effect

Hands-on use of mobile devices restricted

At Tuesday night's City Council meeting, council voted to approve Ordinance 27-16, prohibitting the hands-on use of mobile communication devices while driving.  Under the new law, drivers must either use hands-free devices to make and receive calls (such as bluetooth in-car and after-market calling systems), or pull out of the flow of traffic to make or receive calls.  The law is very similar to laws in place in 14 states and many cities in the Cleveland region.  Signage will be installed at all entry-points to the City, and a public information campaign and a warning period will preceed enforcement.
