Council will also meet on Tuesday for its regular meeting.
Brecksville City Council will hold a special meeting on Monday to discuss the Blossom Hill master plan. The discussion is the only thing on Monday’s agenda. The meeting begins at 7 p.m., but there is a change from the agenda—according to an email from the council clerk, the meeting will be held in the Human Services gathering room. The room that was originally scheduled to be used in City Hall needs to be prepared for Tuesday’s election. Tuesday’s meetings will begin with the council committee meetings at 5:30 p.m. The committees are expected to discuss a variety of issues, including the 2013 road program, an expansion of the Highland Drive cemetery and the Brecksville Center for the Arts’ grant request for the year.

Don’t agree? You can still leave your thoughts in the comments.
Last week, we asked readers if they’d like to see a new pool or water park built in Brecksville. Nearly 100 votes were cast in our poll as of Tuesday afternoon. Most people—41 percent—were in favor of a new outdoor pool at Blossom Hill. Just 12 percent wanted a water park built at the Community Center. And 25 percent of people opted for neither option, saying the city has other priorities to focus on first. Both options are just ideas at this point. City Council discussed both in a special meeting on June 12. Members agreed that improvements to city roads, sewers and buildings should be the top priority for the city, but they also want to look at building some new amenities. Here are a few ideas readers left in the comments. You can add …

Keeping up the quality of streets and other infrastructure comes first, but the city is looking forward to building some new amenities.
Brecksville’s elected officials and department administrators are on the same track when it comes to city priorities: maintaining the city’s streets and buildings are the most important, but it’s time to grow. City Council held a special meeting on Tuesday and discussed a survey the council members, mayor and administrators took on what they feel are the most important issues facing the city. The survey helps council set priorities and plan financially, President Greg Skaljac said in an email. Mayor Jerry N. Hruby described some of the issues that were important to everyone, such as expanding city services and developing more recreational facilities. But improving city infrastructure—like sanitary sewers and roads—still comes first. “And …

The map will create a complete picture of the property.
Brecksville awarded three contracts last night to help create a comprehensive map of the Blossom Hill property—something that doesn’t exist right now. The city acquired the land for Blossom Hill from Cleveland at different points in time, said City Engineer Gerald Wise. The maps and surveys were never put into one document, and an older wetland study is now outdated. These projects would help paint a full picture of the approximately 185 acres as the city works to create its master plan for Blossom Hill. There are three components to the mapping project: aerial photos, wetlands mapping and a survey to identify the boundaries of the property. The aerial map will need to happen soon, before the trees cover the ground for the season. The …
