Welcome to Macedonia! Welcome to the City of Macedonia and the many

new developments that add to the economic vitality of our great City. It is my pleasure to present to you the City’s first Community Guide, which showcases our bountiful amenities. The City and its improved infrastructure are paving the way for Macedonia to continue as a favored business location in Northeast Ohio. The service industries supporting our business community are also growing as many continue to upgrade their offerings. Macedonia was founded in 1824 as “The Corners” with the construction of a single log home. Today, Macedonia is a thriving community encompassing about 10 square miles, and is home to over 11,000 residents and over 400 businesses with a growth rate of 25% in 10 years. Macedonia has an outstanding Fire Safety Force boasting an ISO Fire Rating of ‘2’ (top 1% in U.S.) and an award-winning Police Force. Macedonia has preserved nearly 350 acres of parkland and green space. Longwood Park, which is one of Ohio’s largest city-owned parks, offers wooded paths, baseball and soccer

fields, picnic areas and shelters, and a scenic lake. The City is committed to keeping the momentum going. We hope you find the Macedonia Magazine & Community Guide useful. We thank each participating business for their generous sponsorship to assemble this informative publication. Please support them when you go out to dine, shop or are in need of services. Sincerely,

Donald J. Kuchta Mayor

location was critical. The stations need to be strategically positioned to let Tesla owners travel conveniently and efficiently throughout America without losing power. “It may not have been a big deal to some people when Tesla choose Macedonia as a location for one of only 250 supercharging stations in the country, but it was very significant to me,” says Mayor Donald J. Kuchta. “It reinforced the importance of our location. And location is what economic development is all about.” That, and infrastructure, he adds. Macedonia’s recent growth, Kuchta insists, was launched by the elimination of transportation obstacles that strangled the town. “Ten years ago traffic was restricted by a 105-year-old railroad bridge over a two-lane Route 82 and a railroad crossing that carried as many as 100 trains a day across Highland Road,” the mayor recalls. “If you can imagine wearing your necktie too tight, that’s what it did to our city.” Today Route 82 has five lanes that carry traffic seamlessly under a new railroad bridge, and another bridge – completed last year - has replaced the grade crossing that once stopped traffic on Highland Road. “It has opened up the city, making it easier to get around,” he says. “That makes it convenient for our residents and better for our businesses.” The mayor notes that Macedonia is in a prime location – halfway between I-480 and the Ohio Turnpike, and halfway between Cleveland and Akron. It is, as the town’s motto suggests – “The Crossroads of Northeast Ohio.” This year, construction is scheduled to begin on the widening of I-271 to six lanes.

Along with a revamped infrastructure that has drawn new business into town, Macedonia also boasts one of the lowest property tax rates in Summit County, Kuchta emphasizes. “Our property tax has been at 5.9 mills since 1962,” he says. “I don’t know what else you can find that hasn’t gone up since Kennedy was president. By drawing in new businesses, it maintains an income tax base that allows us to provide the services residents expect from a growing and thriving community.” Services include a Fire Department that is in the top 1 percent of the nation with an ISO Public Protection Classification of 2, the mayor says. “That means we offer top-class service – along with keeping our residents’ insurance premiums down,” he says. Along with the new business development, Macedonia also offers plenty of space for leisure and recreation. “At 325 acres, we have more parkland than most communities,” Kuchta says. “And our recreation center has every conceivable program imaginable. When I moved here 30 years ago you had to drive 20 miles to buy a pair of socks. Today we have all the amenities of a growing city in a convenient location from where you can go anywhere you need to go.”

Nordonia Schools

Commitment to Quality Improvement Through Today’s Learning Target Summit County has seventeen different school

districts, all great in their own right. But as Superintendent of the Nordonia Schools, I believe we are the cream of the crop! Nordonia Schools have the second highest academic rating in the county, with the third lowest effective tax rate. When you send your sons and daughters to the Nordonia Schools, you can rest assured that they will graduate ready for college or a career, and you will get a fabulous bang for your buck. Nordonia High School graduates receive more than $6 million in scholarship money each year, and our students excel in the arts and athletics as well. We believe in educating the whole child, which means we provide a variety of athletic and extracurricular activities to help students develop character and

leadership skills in a fun and safe environment. Our successes are too numerous to list, but our band, choir, Science Olympiad, Future Problem Solvers, and athletic teams annually represent us at district, regional and state competition. At the root of it all, the Nordonia Schools are first and foremost a high-performing academic institution. Throughout the Nordonia Hills City Schools, three words are having a powerful impact on student learning and achievement: today’s learning target. Research shows that just like adults, children are more motivated and task-oriented if they understand what is expected of them. The classrooms of the district’s six schools are vibrant learning environments infused with a culture of differentiated instruction and real-time assessment to measure students’ progress. With a laser focus on learning, teachers provide a roadmap for the day’s concepts and expectations to their students at the beginning of class. In Professional Learning Communities across grade levels and content areas, Nordonia teachers and administrators engage in a carefully cultivated culture of collaborative planning and problem solving – all with an eye toward student achievement gains. Our teachers collaborate to analyze individual student assessment results and strategically plan and change their instructional practices. Using the collective expertise of their colleagues and the data as a guide, teachers are better able to ensure that all students, whether they are struggling, need more challenges or just need a little support to master the content or skill, will learn.

Most of all, Nordonia Schools staff understand their great responsibility in helping boys and girls develop into young men and women who value learning and community. Nordonia students participate in countless hours of community service every year, and raise funds for a variety of worthy organizations. Students develop leadership skills through a variety of activities, and they work hard to create a school culture of inclusion. Nordonia’s high ratings and rankings do not happen by chance. They are the result of a continuous commitment to quality improvement and doing whatever it takes for all students. I invite you to visit our schools and see the wonderful things that are happening.

Nordonia Hills Chamber of Commerce

Promoting Our Members Established in 1982, the Nordonia Hills Chamber of Commerce, serving the communities of Macedonia, Northfield Village, Northfield Center, Sagamore Hills and Boston Heights, offers a wealth of benefits to members and residents. The mission then was to bring the area businesses together for support as the community began changing. It’s mission now is very similar – “To promote our members through education, leadership and communication between business, government and our community”. In 1995, this Chamber had only 50 members; today we hover around 300 members. That growth is not only because the business community has grown, but also because we are sensitive to the needs of our businesses and strive to offer them what they want and need to become successful. The NHCOC Health Insurance Marketplace and VIP Member-to-Member discounts can save an employer thousands of dollars a year. Event sponsorship opportunities enable all businesses, large and small, to promote their products and services. Building relationships is a priority at all networking functions. All things

being equal, we believe that people do business with people they know and trust. Laura Sparano, CEO Phone: 330-467-8956 Twitter—@nordoniachamber

Choosing a Pediatrician By Susan Shah, MD, Akron Children’s Hospital Pediatrics Twinsburg

One of the hardest tasks parents face is selecting a pediatrician. It’s important to find a physician who not only is qualified to care for your child, but also one you feel comfortable with. Start by asking your friends, family and co-workers who they trust. You can also use a physician referral line, such as Ask Children’s (330-543-2000). Be sure to ask if your insurance plan requires you to see certain doctors. Once you have a list, set up interviews with the physicians, which most offer free of charge. Consider asking these questions: • What are your office hours? • What do I do about after-hours emergencies? • How quickly can I get my child in for a routine checkup or a sick visit? • Is this a group or solo practice? • Do you have a time set aside when parents can call with questions? • What is your philosophy of health care? • How do you take the whole family into consideration when treating a child?

Also, pay attention to how the doctor interacts with you and your child. Check out the office as well. Are there toys and books for kids to play with? Is the atmosphere and office staff cheerful and inviting? Once you have chosen a physician, it is important to maintain good communication. Getting the most out of your healthcare dollars — and the best treatment for your child — requires effort on your part, as well as the doctor.

A Day in the Life of a Senior The Days of seniors just sitting in a rocking chair waiting for their family to visit and watching the world go by are over. Seniors today want to continue to be active, both physically and mentally, and studies support the claim that if you don’t use it, you lose it. The Archives of Internal Medicine published a study in 2009 which found seniors who were socially inactive experienced a physical decline of one-third the rate of those who remained socially active. At Summit Point we strive to keep our residents active both physically and mentally. Consider a day in the life of a resident. After a delicious and nutritious continental or hot breakfast, a resident may enjoy one of our exercise classes or work up a sweat in the gym. Once everyone’s blood is pumping there is mind fitness which may consist of riddles, puzzles or games that sharpen the mind. A resident may lunch in their apartment or in our restaurantstyle dining room after which the enrichment department plans

a host of exciting social activities. This may include an outing, an art or craft lesson or a presentation in the theatre room. After a little break, residents may want to gather in the pub for happy hour before dinner. As always, dinner is the social highlight of the day where residents share news and events. Following dinner there is always a game or two of cards. Summit Point is all about friendship and fun. Our goal is to make each and every day fulfilling and exciting. Experience the difference that Summit Point can make in your life. To schedule a complimentary lunch and tour call 330-468-4200 today.

Keeping Your Skin Healthy for Life By Dr. Monique S. Cohn, Advanced Dermatology

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Each year over one million cases are diagnosed. The bad news is: skin cancer can be very dangerous and even deadly if untreated. The good news is: if detected and treated early, skin cancer is almost always curable. There are many ways to minimize the risk of developing skin cancer. Using sun screen during times of sun exposure and avoiding tanning beds are the best preventions. It is also extremely important to do regular skin self exams to detect new or changing growths. Here is how to inspect your body and what to look for: Warning signs of cancer include sores that are slow to heal, sudden changes of existing moles, new moles that develop after

the age of 30, translucent growths with rolled edges, scaling pink or red growths, and dark streaks under the fingernails. Be sure and see a board certified dermatologist to evaluate any suspicious moles that exhibit any of these conditions. A complete professional exam will detect any cancerous or precancerous growths. Most are easy and painless to remove. And that’s great news!

It’s a Great Time to Sell Your Home! SUMMIT COUNTY REAL ESTATE MARKET NEEDS LISTINGS - We are happy to report that overall,

the real estate market grew stronger in 2013. However, listings are down in many neighborhoods, resulting in an insufficient selection from which buyers can choose. Looking at the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) statistics locally, the number of residential sales in April 2014, compared to April 2013, reflects a 10.2% increase in the number of closed transactions. Looking at the new listing statistics for this same time period, the number of homes available for sale are down by 7.7%. If you have been considering selling, now is a great time to get your home on the market for the upcoming summer selling season! According to the National Association of REALTORS®, 89% of today’s buyers begin their home search on the internet. With this in mind, the quality of information conveyed on various real estate websites, plus the photos presented are essential to ensuring that your home is showcased well. It is most important that a seller use every available tool to enhance the on-line presence of their property in order to attract more buyers. Sellers need to know what questions to ask a potential listing agent. As noted, a strong on-line presence is critically important. Ask the agent to explain the ways your property will be enhanced and marketed on the various real estate websites. Ask about the company’s technology tools and the training provided to their agents. Remember, the goal is selecting a real estate agent who is able to market your home to the greatest number of buyers for the quickest possible sale. Of course, a knowledgeable REALTOR® functions as a 16

consultant as well and should be able to provide knowledgeable pricing and staging to make sure your home puts its best foot forward. He or she will also be able to answer your questions concerning the home selling process from listing to close, and will have an available team of professionals to provide a smooth selling transaction.
