From the Mayor

Welcome to Avon!

PHOTO: JUDY BEVERIDGE

It is my honor to welcome you to the City of Avon, one of the fastest growing communities in Northeast Ohio. Many factors have contributed to our continued growth and vibrancy, including our convenient location right off the interstate, exceptional city services and safety forces, recreational amenities, and our excellent school system. And yet even as our city continues to grow, we have retained our old hometown feel, making Avon rare and a desirable place to live, work and visit. NEW & OLD (clockwise from top): Avon’s new water tower; gazebo on Detroit Road; night out at Miller Nature Preserve; stained glass door at the Avon Branch Library; Creative Space Art Gallery exhibit.

Avon welcomes economic development and our city has one of the best mixes of residential and commercial development in the area. Combine that with Avon’s neighborhoods, featuring attractive homes and good-fellowship, our exceptionally rated schools and library, abundant shopping and dining options, first class medical facilities, and plentiful parks and recreational opportunities, and it’s easy to see why Avon is the place to be. We are also a community who respects our past, and Avon’s history will be celebrated later this year with the opening of a History Walk in the wooded area near the Aquatic Facility. It is a privilege for me to serve the residents of Avon as Mayor. Please do not hesitate to contact us at city hall if we can help you in any way. We are here to assist you. Again, welcome to Avon and enjoy your copy of the 2017-2018 Avon Magazine & Community Guide.

“Residents say they want more park and recreation area,” Jensen says. “The aquatic center is only the first part. Now we’re going to add an inclusive play area near the pool for kids of all strengths and needs. It will have all the slides and swings and other play equipment.” Adjacent to the new play area, a wooded recreation area is being established.

Avon Magazine & Community Guide | 2017-2018

“Most adults today remember a wooded area that they used to run around and play in and explore when they were kids,” Jensen says. “By summer, we’re going to have an area like that for people of every age group. For example, we’ll have a quiet area for story telling in partnering with the library, and we’ll have trails.” Also near the aquatic park, Avon’s history will be celebrated with a History Walk through the woods. The History Walk is being created in coordination of the French Creek Foundation. The project was initiated with a $15,000 grant from First Energy to the foundation.


“Many people say the reason they moved to Avon was because it had that old hometown kind of feel,” Jensen says. “We all knew that Avon was going to change just like every old hometown changes. So we talked to some of the senior Dr. Rebecca Starck, president of the residents who have lived Cleveland Clinic Avon Hospital, welcomes here for a long time and residents during the grand opening asked them what makes of the facility in November 2016. the town so special. The more you talk to people about history you start hearing their stories and you realize that we need to preserve that history. That’s why we want to tell our story.” The History Walk will include a series of placards along a walking path, each telling a part of Avon’s history – including its important people and places. Expanded information for each placard will be accessible on mobile devices, Jensen says. The History Walk is expected to be completed by Fall 2017. Looking to the future, Avon continues to grow, Jensen says. “Even with some large retailers moving in, Avon has retained its hometown flavor,” he says. “We still have the smaller shops with local owners and operators and we support the small businesses.” Yet the presence of national and regional retailers helps to confirm Avon’s strength as a place to operate a business. “The big retailers do their homework,” he says. “Before they move in they know the demographics and infrastructure – they make sure it’s a great city.” Over the past five years, a large part of Avon’s economic growth has centered around the Nagel Road Singer Luke Bryan and Mayor Bryan Jensen (right) hang out at the grand opening of the Avon Cabela’s.

Despite its strong economic growth, Jensen insists, Avon has retained its small town neighborliness. “When you have the kind of growth we have seen, you would think that you would lose that small town feel,” the mayor says. “But I am always amazed at how our town responds when a person or family is in need. Our community just rallies around them.”

Avon Local School District Delivers an Outstanding Educational Experience Providing excellent education for its youth, while being fiscally responsible to the citizens of Avon, continues to be a goal of the district. The Avon Local School District provides an outstanding educational experience for nearly 4,300 students. While we enjoy a high academic rating, Avon’s spending per pupil ranks as one of the lowest of the 613 public school districts in the state. With the construction of the new middle school, the former middle school building was transformed into our new Avon Early Learning Center (AELC). Serving kindergarten students and housing the Educational Service Center of Lorain County’s Special Needs Preschool (Avon Soaring Little Eagles), the AELC manages to retain its small town atmosphere while offering a wide variety of learning opportunities for its students. The preschool program recently received a Five-Star Step Up To Quality Award from the State of Ohio (highest honor from the state). First and second-graders attend Avon East Elementary School which offers students a child-centered learning environment. The staff creates academic excellence through high expectations and diverse curriculum offerings aligned with the state standards. There is an outstanding bond between home and school created by staff and parents working together to promote high levels of Mike Laub, achievement. Superintendent Heritage Elementary School

is home to our third, fourth and fifth-grade students. Instruction at this level is designed to enable students to have a rigorous and successful academic experience.

The building includes two gymnasiums, science and computer labs, art rooms and plenty of space for band, choir and orchestra to perform. The students are offered a wide array of learning opportunities. Advanced courses in selected subjects are available and students can earn high school credit in several courses. Avon High School houses grades 9-12 and offers the diversified curriculum required for successful participation in our global society.

To be included on the 7th Annual Honor Roll, the Avon Local Schools had to, since 2014, increase the number of students participating in AP while also increasing or maintaining the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher. Reaching these goals shows that the district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for AP. The Avon Local School District is grateful for its dedicated staff, involved parents, and a supportive community who work together to provide an excellent education for our students.

Making a Difference Every Day at the Library The staff at Lorain Public Library System’s Avon Branch constantly works to make a meaningful impact on the community. The library’s teen volunteer program offers a variety of community service opportunities to their members – a membership that continues to grow each year. Three student aides employed at the Avon Branch are typically Avon residents. This is a tremendous source of pride at the library. Intergenerational interaction is also a priority. At Senior Reading Buddies, senior citizens and young children get together to read and share cookies. These events take place both in the library and out at local retirement facilities.

Homes & Real Estate

Thinking of Buying or Selling? PHOTO: JUDY BEVERIDGE

What Is My Home Worth? There are so many sources of information in the online world to get an estimate of a home’s value. Have you ever searched these and found that your idea of your home’s value varied greatly by the numbers that you see on particular sites? It can be really confusing, considering that each site offers such dramatically different opinions of value! There is a reason for this. The values are based

primarily on algorithms that use strictly tax record data and recent sales. For a more accurate pricing evaluation of your home, it pays to hire a professional REALTOR®. Your agent has actually seen the properties that are compared to yours and has the market experience to help you identify the differences between the data that a computer >> Continued on page 28

Homes & Real Estate Buying or Selling? >> Continued from page 27

generates and the realworld marketability of a property. There are so many factors not considered by a computer program, such as marketability of certain features of your home, what trends buyers are looking for that your home may have, or were there any bank owned properties or short sales in the mix? Let a professional REALTOR guide you through determining the value of your home and the marketing process if you are considering a move. A recent National Association of REALTORS study shows that the price of a home sold with the assistance of a REALTOR is likely to sell, on average, 13% higher!

Your Home is More Affordable to Buyers Now! If you are considering a move in 2017, it’s a great time to sell (and buy!). Avon values are doing well and interest rates continue to stay at historically low rates. Today’s buyer qualifies for more than ever. Just a 2% jump in interest rates can result in decreasing your buyer’s buying power. For example, if your buyer qualifies for a mortgage of $200,000 at today’s rate, a 2% increase in interest rates would have a significant impact on their buying power, lowering their qualifying level to $160,000. This makes your home more affordable now!

What Your Realtor Does For You If you would like a copy of “The Real Estate Transaction in 180 Steps, What your REALTOR does for you”, email meghankopp@ howardhanna. com or call Meghan at 440-666-1874. See Ad on back cover.

Landscaping for Curb Appeal Creating curb appeal is one of those landscaping areas where you want your front yard to stand out from surrounding yards without being totally out-of-place with the rest of the neighborhood. To get curb appeal, you need to have color, form, line, texture, scale, and focal points by using a variety plants, hardscape, and water features. q Annuals provide bright colors in the spring, throughout the summer and are great for filling in gaps in your garden. Y Evergreens provide green all year long, so in the winter your beds and your yard don’t look so bare. i Perennials give a variety of color throughout spring, summer, and fall.

Since it is possible that someone other than the seller has a prior legal right to the property you’re buying, the premium coverage offered by the Homeowner’s Policy provides you with added peace of mind. The Homeowner’s Policy helps protect you against covered losses and prior defects, and provides legal defense for covered risks.

Get the Right Title Insurance Your lender only requires that you purchase a Loan Policy. However, that policy only ensures the lender has a valid, enforceable lien on the property. It does not protect you! The Homeowner’s Policy is designed to protect you from covered title discrepancies arising prior to or concurrent with your purchase of the property and protection against undisclosed heirs, mistakes in recording or errors in tax records. Your Homeowner’s Policy will automatically increase by 10% in value each year for the first five years (up to 150% of the original policy amount) to help cover increases due to inflation.

How Much Does Title Insurance Cost? The single premium is directly related to the value of your home. Typically, it is less expensive than your annual auto insurance. It is a one-time-only expense, paid when you purchase your home, yet it continues to provide complete coverage for as long as you or your heirs own the property. Old Republic Title offers the superior protection of the Homeowner’s Policy of Title Insurance, delivering more complete risk coverage, which translates to greater peace of mind for homebuyers.

Avon is a booming community, and we’re pleased to be part of its history and growth. We’re also proud to serve as the safety net when residents need a helping hand. Founded in 1988, Community Resource Services (CRS) is the primary social services agency that residents of Avon and Avon Lake turn to during difficult times. Last year, we distributed 101,000 pounds of food from our pantry, assisted 225 kids with school supplies, and provided Christmas gifts to 284 children. We also provided emergency financial assistance for expenses like rent, utilities, auto repairs and medical costs. We couldn’t do any of this without the support of the City of Avon and its residents. Thank you!

Happy Birthday! Lorain Lighthouse Shines Bright at 100 The Lorain West Breakwater Lighthouse celebrates her 100th Birthday on June 30, 2017 and she’s never shone brighter! The lighthouse, lovingly referred to by locals as the Jewel of the Port®, has been a welcoming beacon in the Lorain Harbor for nearly a century. Construction began in 1917, and she was staffed by National Lighthouse Keepers until the US Coast Guard took over in 1939. When the lighthouse was scheduled for demolition in 1965, a campaign to save the lighthouse began. Eventually, the lighthouse became the property of the Lorain Lighthouse Foundation, whose dedicated volunteers continue to maintain her today. Upcoming centennial festivities include guided tours, Sunset Wine Dinner Tours, and an

HOPE BLOOMS HERE: The Prayers from Maria Foundation first planted the 50-acre sunflower field at the southwest corner of Jaycox and Chester Roads in 2014 to beautifully draw attention to the lack of funding for childhood cancer. The field was inspired by the memory and spirit of Maria McNamara, planted as a way to love and honor the courageous children who are battling cancer and those we have lost. The field can be seen from I-90 and blooms in late August to mid-September.
