Girard Business Owners:
As you are aware, the Route 422 Expansion Project has begun in earnest. However, you may not be aware that a unique opportunity has presented itself to the business owners along State Street. We can choose to accept the standard highway light poles that First Energy and the State of Ohio are planning on installing, or we can opt to revamp our city with Premier Municipal Quality lampposts. A minimal donation is all that would be required from each business owner to cover the cost of the post and installation. The City of Canfield is currently implementing a similar project on Route 224. We are considering merging our two orders in an effort to keep our cost as low as possible. We estimate that each lamppost would cost between $899.00 and $999.00. The City of Girard has agreed to maintain the lampposts, including bulbs, parts and electricity. We are also considering a plaque in the center of town recognizing all of the contributors to this beautification project.
Please do not disregard this exceptional opportunity to upgrade our city’s image! Route 422 is the most significant and well-traveled entrance to the city, and all of the businesses along this corridor will benefit from this improvement. The ability to add flags and holiday wreaths on the lampposts would also enhance the city’s appearance. Other communities, such as Chagrin Falls, have augmented their cities’ images in the same manner. Please be aware that your tax-deductible donation is due before or by Monday, December 29. I welcome any questions or suggestions and can be reached at any time at 330-565-2810. I look forward to working with you to beautify Girard!
Thank you in advance,
