Township adopts larger zoning signs
LIBERTY TWP. - Property slated for zoning changes will be more apparent when the township posts the notices on larger signs.
Responding to residents' complaints, trustees have purchased eight 3-by-4-foot signs to be posted on land subject to a proposed zone change.
They replace the 2-foot by 18-inch signs identical in size to "house for sale'' yard signs, says Christine Matacic, trustee and acting administrator. "Our old signs can appear to be lost on a property, particularly on large commercial tracts," she says.
Madeira steps up downtown sewer work
MADEIRA - Access to the city's downtown should be back to normal a couple of months earlier than expected.
City Manager Tom Moeller said the Metropolitan Sewer District has added a second crew to work on a $3.4 million sanitary sewer project that included Euclid Road and Miami and Railroad avenues.
That means the project should be finished in July instead of September, he said.
Madeira officials have restricted traffic and urged rush-hour motorists from other communities since October to bypass the area, causing concerns by some shops about a possible drop in business.
The sewer line replacement is part of a court order requiring Hamilton County to eliminate sanitary sewer overflows into storm sewers and creeks.
Loveland building officials win honors
LOVELAND - The city's two building officials were recently honored by a state professional organization.
Building and zoning administrator Gerald Stoker, who has worked for Loveland since 1994, was elected to the board of directors of the Ohio Building Officials Association, where he will serve a two-year term. He was the organization's Building Official of the Year in 2000.
Majed Dabdoub, plans examiner for the City of Cincinnati who works for Loveland under contract, received the association's Victor Jones Award for lifetime achievement.
The Columbus-based association has 1,200 members and works to develop and endorse national, state, and local building codes and to promote professionalism as well as education.
