On July 13, 2022 Mayor Neil Toeppe, Public Service Superintendent Neil Tedrow and Village Administrator Shannon Shulters completed the Project 8&9 Sewer Separation walk through with Jones & Henry Engineers and Underground Utilities to address the concerns of residents regarding the greater than an inch drop off from driveway to road and the current grass growing being mainly weeds. It was assured that concerns and issues would be taken care of this fall.
The orginally scheduled July 5, 2022 Planning Commission took place on July 13, 2022 at 6:30 PM. Special Public Hearing was called to order to conduct a Site Plan Review for 10 Turtle Creek. The applicant desires to construct a commercial building at 10 Turtle Creek named Birchwood Meadow Event Venue. The intent of the building is to house various events such as weddings and conferences. Mayor Toeppe stated that the only concerns from CT, in which he had already addressed prior to the meeting, were what types of flowers/trees would be planted along with the type of wood that would be used for the sign. Mayor Toeppe assured CT that the Village of Swanton would handle making sure the business complied with the ordinances when it came time to plant flowers/trees and put up a sign. Mr. DeGood’s only recommendation to Mr. & Mrs. Mills is to make sure they contact the Ohio Department of Forestry to get approval of species being planted. Mr. Erdman’s concern was what type of lighting would be used in the parking lot. Mr. & Mrs. Mills assured the Planning Commission that it would be low and soft lighting but enough to ensure safety.
