Overhaul of Congested Intersection Complete

he intersection of Dixie Highway/Rt. 4 and Holden Boulevard/South Gilmore Road has consistently been in the City’s three highest crash rate locations. Many crashes at this location are a direct result of heavy congestion and typically occur at low speeds, only causing damage to vehicles. However, injuries do occur at this intersection more frequently than other locations in the City. Many of these injury crashes were caused, at least in part, by the less-than-ideal alignment between Holden and South Gilmore. Due to these concerns, Fairfield applied for a safety grant from the Ohio Department of Transportation to make improvements. In 2011, ODOT agreed to fund 90% of the engineering, right of way, and construction. Planning began shortly thereafter and the City contracted with LJB, Inc. to perform engineering services. The primary objective of the project was to add a southbound lane and improve the alignment along Holden and South Gilmore. This presented many challenges due to limited right of way and businesses that are built close to the street. The design team had several meetings with the affected businesses to assess design alternatives and reach a satisfactory compromise. The final alignment required the purchase of some right of way but managed to balance the effects on businesses while improving the curve and adding the southbound lane.

In addition to the new through lane and improved alignment, improvements included new curb, storm sewer upgrades with filtering contaminants from stormwater, a six-foot-wide sidewalk, mast arm traffic signal supports, video and radar traffic detection, Dark Sky certified LED intersection lighting, internally illuminated lane-use signs in advance of the intersection, new pavement, and fresh pavement markings. Construction began in the spring of 2016 and was completed several weeks early. The project was also ten percent under budget for a total cost of $1,843,551.79. This was the first transportation project in Ohio to register for certification with Greenroads, a third-party rating system that challenges transportation design and construction to go above and beyond minimum environmental, social, and economic practices. Certification is ongoing, and expected to be complete this summer.

KD’s Story: Success One Day at a Time Submitted by DeCoach Rehabilitation Centre, Fairfield

O

ften we try to classify success by length of time or long-term outcomes. However, success is actually the accumulation of small steps that lead us to bigger goals and dreams. The following is a story that we could say is written day by day and is a series of small steps and successes, which is what recovery really is. When KD first began Medicated Assisted Treatment, she was an active heroin user. She was so deep into addiction that she could not sustain the eight hours required to start the medication at her induction appointment. She was also not honest with the medical team about the last time she used during the induction process. This sad error caused her to go into precipitated withdraw. Our staff stayed beside her for several hours to help her through the extreme sickness and continued to ensure her that each day would get a little better. I’m sure that KD doubted us and wondered if she had made a grave error trying to get clean. But at this point in her life KD wanted something better. She was unemployed, had lost custody of her children, and feared for her life. Her family offered to help her one more time. Today, thanks to those little steps, little wins and little successes, KD is in a much better place. She is currently employed, successfully following her treatment plan, and successfully participating in counseling. Even the little things now bring KD joy. The other day she said “how different it is to provide a urine drug screen now happily knowing with complete confidence that it will be clean”. Yes, there is still work to be done. But each day that KD goes without using is a step away from addiction and a step further into recovery.

Sushi House Opens

Union Centre Logistics Park Under Construction Construction recently started on a new industrial/logistics park in Fairfield named Union Centre Logistics Park. This new project represents a $30 million investment by NorthPoint Development near the intersection of Union Centre Boulevard and Seward Road. It includes the construction of two new, modern logistics buildings on a 40-acre land site.

City and Fairfield Chamber representatives helped celebrate the opening of Sushi House Asian Grill, located at 510 Nilles Road.

“We expect the park will ultimately be home to more than 400 employees and see a capital investment of over $30 million. We specifically chose this site due to many factors, including the ‘open for business’ nature that the City of Fairfield exhibited.”

Realtor of the Year Award

Building 1 will contain more than 477,000 square feet of leasable space, while Building 2 will have more than 128,000 square feet. Construction is expected to be complete by Fall of 2017. No tenants have been announced yet.

Planet Fitness Relocating Tom Hasselbeck, Vice President/Sales Manager of Sibcy Cline’s Fairfield office, was recently honored by the Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors with the “Realtor of the Year/Management” award for 2016. This recognition is bestowed upon a real estate manager who is a role model for the board with professionalism, involvement and civic activity. Tom also serves on the Fairfield Planning Commission and the City’s Design Review Board.

This will be the first project in the greater Cincinnati region for Kansas City based NorthPoint Development. “The greater Cincinnati industrial market offers a unique opportunity for NorthPoint Development due to its strategic location, logistics advantages and availability of quality workforce,” said Brent Miles, NorthPoint’s Vice President of Economic Development.

Planet Fitness, currently located in Fairfield on Patterson Drive, plans to relocate later this year to a new facility near Jungle Jim’s International Market. The new site is located on Michael Lane, just off of Route 4 behind the GE Credit Union. The site previously held three small houses that were cleared in December. Planet Fitness will construct a new and attractive 2-story, 31,000 square foot building similar to recently-built facilities in Western Hills and Florence. Construction is expected to be finished by this Fall. “We are making the move to Route 4 for a host of reasons,” said Mike Hamilton, Chief Operating Officer of PFMW. “We’ll be able to more than double the size of our club and gain visibility in

5

the busy Route 4 corridor. Plus, what better neighbor could we possibly have than Jungle Jim’s?” The new gym will contain 132 pieces of cardio equipment, three lines of strength equipment, tanning beds, and massage areas. It will be open and staffed 24/7. There are more than 1,300 Planet Fitness locations across the country. This location will be one of twelve in the Cincinnati region. Additional redevelopment on Patterson Drive is expected once Planet Fitness moves out. Planet Fitness in Florence.


New Retail Center Coming To Route 4

Plans were recently approved for a new 9,000 square foot multi-tenant retail center on Route 4. The new center will be built on a vacant 1.2 acre site in the Stockton Station P.U.D., between the Spinning Fork restaurant and the new Starbucks. The building will accommodate three to five tenants, including restaurants, retailers, or service businesses, depending on the size of the space needed by each tenant. The first two announced tenants include Rapid Fired Pizza and Guthrie’s Chicken Fingers. A landscape buffer is planned for the rear of the project, closest to neighboring homes. Cincinnati United Contractors (CUC) is the owner and developer of the center. “We are excited about this project. The site has great visibility on Route 4 and is in a vibrant part of Fairfield, said Chance Truemper, Vice President of CUC. “The City of Fairfield has always been great to work with and we are very confident that the space will fill up quickly and be a tremendous success.”

Chamber Golf Outing The Fairfield Chamber of Commerce 2017 Annual Fallen Heroes Golf Outing will be held on Wednesday, May 17th, at the Fairfield Greens South Trace Golf Course. The event features 18 holes of golf, lunch, dinner and a chance to win numerous prizes. Donations will also be accepted for the Fallen Heroes of Fairfield scholarship fund.

THE BIBLE: THE COMPLETE WORD OF GOD

VANITIES By Jack Heifner A comedic and bittersweet snapshot of the lives of three Texas girls. In 1963, Joanne, Kathy, and Mary are aggressively vivacious cheerleaders. Five years later in their college sorority house, they are confronting their futures with nervous jauntiness. In 1974, they reunite briefly in New York. Their lives have diverged and their friendship, which once thrived on assumption as well coordinated as sweater sets, is strained and ambiguous. Old time banter rings false. Their attempts at honest conversation only show they can no longer afford to have very much in common. Directed by Pat Ganz

By Adam Long, Reed Martin, Austin Tichenor An affectionate, irreverent roller-coaster ride from fig leaves to Final Judgment, tackling the great theological questions: Did Adam and Eve have navels? Did Moses really look like Charlton Heston? And why isn’t the word “phonetic” spelled the way it sounds? Whether you’re Catholic or Atheist, Muslim or Jew, Protestant or Purple People Eater, you will be tickled by this romp through old-time religion. Directed by Zachary Brown

I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE

ONE SLIGHT HITCH By Lewis Black If you think of Lewis Black solely as a curmudgeonly comedian whose default setting is a state of apoplexy at the imbecility of his fellow man, you might be surprised by ONE SLIGHT HITCH. THE STORY: It’s Courtney’s wedding day, and her mom, Delia, is making sure that everything is perfect. The groom is perfect, the dress is perfect, and the decorations (assuming they arrive) will be perfect. Then, like in any good farce the doorbell rings. And all heck breaks loose. So much for perfect. Directed by R. Geoffrey Werbin

Book and Lyrics by Joe DiPietro Music by Jimmy Roberts This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as ‘the relationship.’ Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting, to love and marriage. Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, and to those who have dared to ask, ‘Say, what are you doing Saturday night?’ Directed by Heidi Schiller

A special 60-minute version based on the beloved holiday film, this hilarious fish-out-of-water musical comedy follows Buddy the Elf in his quest to find his true identity. Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

CALL US WHEN YARD DEBRIS IS READY FOR PICK UP

W

e are pleased to announce that beginning Monday, April 3, the Public Works Department will again provide a Call-in Brush and Limb Pickup Program on an alternating week schedule (see below). Residents wishing to have brush and limbs picked up can arrange to do so by calling or emailing the Public Works Department at 867-4200 at least one week in advance of the scheduled pickup areas. Normal business hours for the Public Works Department are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The three pickup areas will be the same as those used for the City’s leaf pickup program. Pickups will be scheduled starting the first Monday of each month as follows:

• To schedule a pickup be sure to call or email (public_works@fairfield-city.org) at least one week prior to the scheduled pick-up week. Calls and emails will be accepted up to 5 p.m. the preceding Monday. All calls and emails must report name, address and a telephone number. It may be necessary to limit the number of scheduled pickups in a specific week, so contact us as far in advance as possible. The program is limited to one pickup per household during each area pickup week.

• The first week of each month – areas west of Pleasant Avenue (U.S. 127) • The second week of each month – areas between Pleasant Avenue and Winton Road • The third week of each month – areas east of Winton Road No pickups will be scheduled the last week of each month to allow for machinery repair and scheduling for the following month. The following requirements have been established to ensure the safety and efficiency of this program. There will be no deviation from these requirements: • Limbs must be at least six feet in length and no more than six inches in diameter and should be placed in the same direction. Any limbs larger than six inches diameter will not be picked up. (Leave limbs as long as possible.) • Smaller branches will be considered brush and must be tied and bundled with natural fiber cord that is biodegradable (cotton, linen or twine). Bundles tied with wire, plastic or nylon cord will not be picked up. All materials will be run through a chipper, so please ensure that there are no foreign objects (metal, building materials, rocks, etc.) as they could damage equipment or cause injury to equipment operators. • Each bundle must not be heavier than 60 pounds and must be placed between the curb and sidewalk or at the edge of the roadway, not in the curb line or on the pavement. Placement of debris in the street is a traffic and safety hazard and is a violation of City Ordinance and will not be picked up by City personnel. Do not park in front of piles. Piles that are obstructed by vehicles or equipment will not be picked up.

• Operation Dump Truck can be used for larger limbs in addition to brush. This program provides residents a dumpster box or dump truck to be loaded by the property owner and disposed of by the City. For more information, please call 867-4200. • Place small bundled quantities with your regular trash to be picked up by Rumpke at no charge. • Brush and limbs up to four inches in diameter can be dropped off on the second Saturday of each month all year at 4935 Groh Lane. Parks crews will be on hand from 8 a.m. until Noon on these Saturdays to mulch the debris without charge. No leaves or grass clippings are accepted. Users of this service must present proof of Fairfield residence. Any questions regarding the call-in program should be directed to the Public Works Department at 867-4200. Summer 2017

Paving on Rt. 4 Scheduled for 2018

T

he City of Fairfield has almost six miles of State Route 4 (Dixie Highway) within its corporate boundaries. Over 3.5 miles will be improved with a paving project in 2018. The project will resurface Seward Road to the northerly corporate boundary just north of the CSX railroad overpass. This section is also part of the historic Dixie Highway. The upcoming project to pave Route 4 will be bid by the City in late 2017 with work expected to begin in late spring/early summer of 2018. Much of the paving will be at night due to high traffic volumes during the day. The project will also include curb replacement and other tasks which will be performed during daytime hours. State funding will contribute approximately 50% of the needed money for this project while the other half of the cost will be provided through City funds. The current construction estimate for the project is approximately $3.8 million.

The eastern route of Dixie Highway passes through Fairfield and is 2,169 miles long traversing from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to Miami, Florida. The combined divisions of Dixie Highway make up 3,989 miles, and pass through eight states, four state capitals, and 144 counties. History of Dixie Highway/Rt. 4 Local community members gathered on July 10, 1917, to commemorate Dixie Highway being designated as a state route. The newly-designated State Route 4 was originally paved in brick to upgrade the dirt and gravel road. Upgraded from a two-lane road to four lanes in 1964, various widenings and improvements have occurred since that time. These have added turn lanes and additional capacity at various locations, though much of the 1964 infrastructure remains today. Serving as a vital component to the economy of the region, nearly 500 businesses are located along or adjacent to the Route 4 corridor in the City of Fairfield. Traffic counts from 2014 reveal that over 46,000 vehicles per day utilize the southern section of Route 4 near the Hamilton County line and 44,000 pass daily near the Bypass 4 intersection in Fairfield. 46 C i t y o f F a i r f i e l d , O h i o

New County Flood Maps in 2018

Official Flood Maps

F

EMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) is working on a new flood map for Butler County, Ohio. The projected effective date will be Spring 2018. This new National Flood Insurance Rate Map will replace the existing county flood map from 2010. The City of Fairfield will benefit from more accurate flood zone boundary updates that are provided by the adoption of this new map. As always, the City of Fairfield encourages its residents to be aware of their flood risk and to purchase and maintain a flood insurance policy to protect themselves from the financial impacts of flooding. Map changes can affect flood insurance. Call the Development Services Department at 513-867-5345 for possible map changes in your area. You can also reach the FEMA Map Information Exchange at 1-877-336-2627.
