e m o c l We to the 2021 Medina Magazine!

It is our pleasure to present you with the 14th annual

Medina Area Magazine and Community Guide. This publication is brought to you free-of-charge as a result of the many generous sponsorships from local businesses and organizations throughout our fine community. In turn, we ask that you support our local businesses with your patronage. In light of the difficult times businesses had in 2020, please make a special effort to support them by making it a priority to shop and dine locally. In support of local businesses and our many visitors, Medina has added a new parking deck on West Liberty Street. In 2021 you will see an exciting project take shape in front of that parking deck. The city has been fortunate to welcome several new small businesses to the city, as well as the relocation to Medina of Carlisle Brake and Friction’s Corporate Headquarters, the opening of Miller Plating, and the expansion of Spray Products and Do It Best in our manufacturing sector. Medina continues to be a very special place to live, work, and visit. Our many annual events and activities, the unique entertainment venues, and the variety of dining opportunities draw tourists from near and far. We are also fortunate to have excellent schools, year-round parks and

recreational activities, an award winning library system, and world-recognized health facilities, all of which enhance and improve the quality of life for our residents, workforce, and visitors. We are proud of the positive growth that Medina continues to experience in the manufacturing, retail, and service sectors with equally strong employment opportunities.

The city’s success is due, in part, to our community-oriented government model across all of our city departments, where all city staff are trained to keep Medina the best it can be each and every day. If you have any questions or we may assist you in any way, please contact us at 330-725-8861. We look forward to serving you. For more information on city departments, services, and contact information, please visit our website at While on the website, you can also sign up to receive the city’s weekly e-newsletter.

City Overview

. Preserving the Past. . . a n i d e M Forging the Future. By Ken McEntee

About three years after expanding its Medina

operations, Carlisle Brake & Friction moved a substantial part of its corporate offices to Medina from Solon in 2020. Perhaps the biggest factor in the company’s decision to relocate, Mayor Dennis Hanwell

suggests, was Medina’s business friendly philosophy. One thing that impressed Carlisle, Hanwell recalls, is that the city, for the past few years, has waived its annual maintenance fee for members of its local railroad consortium. “Consortium members were paying $15,000 per year for Photo: Mike Petcher


Medina Area Magazine & Community Guide | 2021

a rail maintenance fund, but the line has been in good shape and hasn’t needed a lot of work,” Hanwell says. “The pot continued to grow, but we didn’t need all the money, so we first reduced the fee to $10,000, then waived it altogether. I asked Carlisle’s CEO whether he’d even seen a government give back, or decline to take, his money. He said he had not.” The annual contribution to the consortium, the mayor reasons, could be better spent toward a new piece of equipment or hiring another worker.

Medina’s pro-business philosophy, Hanwell says, was instrumental in the city besting Carlisle’s locations in Oklahoma and Indiana for its 2017 expansion, which brought more than 70 new jobs to town. But it isn’t only big businesses that have benefited, the mayor insists. “A local contractor recently told me how happy he was after he came into City Hall and walked out with a building permit in six minutes,” Hanwell says. “He went to the finance window, filled out his paperwork, paid and got his permit. He said the same process can drag out for six or eight months in some cities. Everybody benefits from our streamlined process because more work gets done faster, without compromising quality. That’s good for the resident, good for the contractor and good for the city.” The business friendly philosophy is a part of what Hanwell refers to as the city’s community government model. “The cooperation between our various departments is unusual for a city government,” Hanwell says. “If there is something that needs to be done, the police department, the fire department, sanitation - everybody works together to get it done. We  Continued on page 6

don’t say, ‘That’s not my job,” and walk away from a problem. I try to challenge city workers to find, fix or report problems before the public does.” Hanwell said he’s proud of Medina’s quality of municipal services especially because they are funded with a 1.25 percent city income tax - which he says is one of the lowest rates in Ohio. Despite the pandemic, business in Medina remained relatively strong in 2020, emphasizes Kimberly Marshall, the city’s economic development director. In addition to Carlisle’s most recent investment, which will bring almost 50 new full-time positions to Medina, the city also saw a variety of

which included the purchase of new equipment, will result in about 35 new jobs,” Marshall says.

Do It Best, with a hardware supply warehouse on Independence Drive, benefited from high demand for its products during the pandemic, Marshall says. The $3.1 million Do It Best expansion will result in 30 new full-time jobs. “We were in competition with Montgomery, N.Y. and Dixon, Ill. for this expansion project and the company chose Medina,” she says.

In the commercial and retail sector, the mixed-use Medina Farmers Exchange building project was officially opened in February 2020. In October, the project, located in the historic Farmers Exchange, was recognized with the Best Commercial Building Rehabilitation Award from Heritage Ohio, an organization that promotes economic development and sustainability through preservation of historic buildings. The Farmers Exchange is a Medina landmark, representing the area’s rich agricultural heritage. The building once included warehouse, milling and retail spaces with loading facilities for trucks and railroad cars.

Meanwhile, Miller Plating, headquartered in New Jersey, acquired the assets of Medina Plating, which closed its Lafayette Road operation in September 2019. A $617,000 investment to reopen the plant,

In its new purpose, the building includes 16 one-and two-bedroom apartments, Medina Brewing Co., Keller Meats butcher shop, 1904 Brews, The Farmer’s Table restaurant, and an open retail space that Marshall describes as a miniature version of Cleveland’s historic West Side Market that includes Cleveland Pierogies.

other new industrial and retail business projects in 2020. With the incentive of job creation grants approved by City Council, Do It Best Corp. and Miller Plating Inc. expanded operations in the city.

The historic Medina Farmer’s Exchange building, which opened in February 2020, is a highlight of Medina’s South Town District.

Castle Noel

The renovated Farmer’s Exchange building is a highlight of Medina’s South Town district, a historical area south of iconic Public Square, which retains its 1800s appearance, exemplifying the city’s historical flavor. Also situated south of the square, Castle Noel - billed as America’s largest year-round indoor Christmas entertainment attraction, draws busloads of tourists to Medina throughout the year. “If you talk to anybody who has moved here or brought their business here, inevitably most of them will tell you that when they drove through the Square, they knew this is where they wanted to be,” Hanwell says. South Town, he says, is an extension of that charming area. “There is such a demand for space on the square, but there just aren’t enough places  Continued on page 8

to bring in all the new businesses that would like to be here,” Hanwell says. “South Town opens up more opportunities.” During the pandemic in 2020, the city government helped to support local businesses by providing face masks for customers and by creating reserved parking spots on Public Square for carry-out customers. City Council approved $5,000 to buy the three-ply masks through a local company Allfasteners USA, Marshall says. City Council also approved $200,000 in Cares Relief Act funding to provide grants to Medina’s small businesses. Walking the square, Marshall says, has become safer, thanks to a mid-block crosswalk improvement project that was completed in 2020. “The mid-block crosswalks have been there, but many motorists don’t realize that they are supposed to yield for pedestrians in the crosswalk,” she says. “We now have flashing signs that get a driver’s attention.”

Inside City Hall, a council chamber renovation project was completed by the end of 2020. The recessed meeting area in the center of the building was being raised to ground level, with improved audio and video equipment being added.

Another nearby project completed in 2020 has changed the landscape around City Hall. A new parking deck, partially funded with a state grant, has added 210 parking spaces just south of City Hall. Marshall says the city government has applied for an EPA grant that would help pay for four electric vehicle charging stations in the parking deck. The Medina City Development Corp, a non-profit economic development arm of the city is reviewing proposals that could result in new apartments or a boutique hotel just south of the parking deck.

“The combination of convenient location and modern amenities with an old fashioned, small town atmosphere continue to make Medina one of Northeast Ohio’s most desired places in which to live and raise a family,” Hanwell insists.

During this time, our food service department was able to continue to offer meals through weekly distribution, and the technology department provided devices to families in need so students could continue their learning online. In addition to moving to online instruction, creativity and ingenuity reached out of the classroom. Through a collaborative effort with the staff of Medina High School, the administration, the Board of Education, Medina TV, and the partnership with local cable, a successful virtual graduation was produced to celebrate the Class of 2020.

36 years

& 20,000 smiles later...

Dr. Charles (“Chuck”) Pfister and his amazing team still can’t get enough of transforming smiles and, in turn, transforming lives. “We’ve been at this for a while now,” Dr. Pfister states, “but if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that orthodontics is always evolving. New technologies are constantly introduced. So being a good orthodontist not only means being effective at traditional methods of teeth straightening (such as braces), but also embracing newer technologies (such as Invisalign). Yet even as these technologies evolve, the one thing that will never change is the importance of the doctor-patient relationship.” While Dr. Pfister is pleased to offer the latest in Invisalign technology, his expertise in multiple methods of teeth straightening is unique in a field that is moving heavily toward Invisalign. “While I love implementing Invisalign, it’s not for everyone. Every patient’s needs are unique. For this reason, we’re happy to offer treatment plans involving not only Invisalign, but also braces (and everything in between).” Though an orthodontist can treat a person’s smile at any age, Dr. Pfister advises that the greatest results can be achieved at the first sign of orthodontic problems. The American Orthodontic Association recommends the first orthodontic exam be at around 7 years of age. But if you’re an adult and you’re just now getting around to transforming your smile, rest assured that Dr. Pfister treats plenty of adult patients as well. When asked why he thinks his patients choose his practice over other quality providers out there, Dr. Pfister states, “I’d like to think that our patients choose us because we treat the whole person – not just one’s mouth. Our mission is to create better smiles so that our patients can live better lives. And I think our patients truly sense that we’re passionate in fulfilling that mission.”

Senior Living The “Choice” is Yours Choosing a senior living residence for yourself or a loved one is one of the biggest decisions of your life. It involves the sobering realization that living alone in a home full of love and memories may no longer be the best setting for your loved one’s life. Fortunately, many more assisted living and senior living options are available today than decades ago.

There is no clear-cut, step-by-step template that tells people exactly when it’s time to consider a senior living community, whether that be an independent living, assisted living or nursing home. However, there are numerous signs that a new living arrangement is

needed, such as the inability to manage a home’s upkeep, assistance with meals, medication management, loneliness, and other issues. Here are a few tips for choosing a quality residence and the important factors in the decision-making process. Senior living offers choice about where your loved one wants to live, the services provided, and the level of care and type of environment that best matches your loved one’s physical and emotional needs. Each senior living resident is a unique individual, so high-quality senior living residences offer a wide array of choices, including: • Housekeeping services

• Transportation

• Assistance with eating, bathing, dressing, and walking

• Access to health and medical services

• Alzheimer’s and memory care

• Staff available to respond to both scheduled and unscheduled needs

• 24-hour security

• Emergency call systems for each resident’s apartment

• Exercise and wellness programs

• Medication management

• Personal laundry services

• Social and recreational activities

Ask questions, investigate, and if possible, include your loved one in the decision-making process and you will find the best solution for all. Western Reserve Masonic Community offers numerous options for your loved one. Contact them for more information at 330-721-3000 or visit

Even throughout the 2020 pandemic, the people of Medina County have stepped up to participate and help others as much they can. As a real estate professional, I enjoy asking my sellers what they love most about their home and town. Many times the answer is “Medina is filled with such nice friendly people.” I am proud to represent buyers and sellers in our communities.
