Those traveling along Route 53 as well as Normatown Road may notice a flurry of activity taking place along the street. Two different improvement projects were approved by the Village Board for these areas.

On the east side of Route 53, new sidewalks will run from Phelps Avenue to Ridgewood Avenue. On the west side of the road, new sidewalks will be added from Phelps to Normantown. The segments of new sidewalk on both sides of Route 53 will be ADA compliant and provide a safe way for pedestrians to walk along the road.

Akron City Council approves improvements to Akron Executive Airport, paving way for development on nearby land

AKRON, Ohio – City Council on Monday approved plans for more than $6 million in work at Akron Executive Airport, including improved runway lights and reconstruction of a runway that would allow for development of nearby land.

The city is slated to pay for $149,500, or 5%, of $2.99 million for improvements to runway lights and signs, pavement markings and the reconstruction of about 6,000 feet of the fence around the airport perimeter, and is asking the Ohio Department of Transportation to cover the other 95%,

UPDATED; Talladega City BOE approves budget, capital improvement ‘wish list’ | The Daily Home

Editor’s note: This story has been updated to reflect the fact board member Sandra Beavers questioned a series of checks written to one constractor. A previous version said the checks had been written to multiple contractors, but that was incorrect.

TALLADEGA — The Talladega City Board of Education voted 4-0 to approve a budget that included a slight deficit and 3-1 to approve a five-year capital improvement project during a meeting Tuesday evening. 

Board Chair Mary McGhee was not present for the meeting, and board member Sandra Beavers cast the dissenting vote against the capital improvement budget. Beavers did not explain or defend her “no” vote.

Board member Chuck Roberts acted as board chair in McGhee’s absence. The meeting took place on the Zoom platform; Beavers could not be seen at all by the other participants and was late in casting her vote on most occasions.
