Lander Road Reconstruction Project 2013-2014

I sent out this email on Thursday, June 6, 2013, after seeing the electronic billboard at our southern end of Lander Road (by the Chagrin and Pinetree circle). The City has also sent out the information and it's on the website.


Due to a desire to have more residents utilize the City-wide City-generated electronic communications, you've not received many emails from me personally recently. And hopefully by now you have visited and used the new website which launched at the very end of December 2012 (see here), and have signed up for the City communications (see here) and have had a chance to sign up for the Code Red alert system (see here about the program and here to sign up).

However, I also appreciate the comments I've received that have noted the decrease in frequency of these emails and this is a bit of an attempt to re-connect a little more often without duplicating what you receive from the City.  And with that in mind, please take note of this information regarding the road work that will start this Monday, June 10, 2013 on Lander Road in Pepper Pike. This information is directly from the website (see here):
