to the 2020 Medina Magazine!

It is our pleasure to present you with

the 13th annual Medina Area Magazine and Community Guide. This magazine 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. Make shopping local a priority. 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. Medina is truly a place where “Hometown Meets History”. This year we are proudly featuring the renovation and redevelopment of several of the city’s historic buildings. The Farmers Exchange, The Foundry, and the Town Hall and Engine House Museum have each experienced an exciting transformation that will make an impact on the economy of our hometown and our dedication to history. In addition, we look forward to the opening by summer of a new Historic District Parking Facility, complete with electric vehicle charging stations to better serve your parking needs.

The city’s success is due, in part, to our positive customer service model in all of our city departments, and our search for perpetual improvement in all we do. If you have any questions or we may assist you in any way, please contact us at 330-725-6681. We look forward to serving you.

City Overview

The City of By Ken McEntee

a n i d e M

“The mix of modern amenities

with an old-fashioned, small town atmosphere continues to make Medina one of Northeast Ohio's most desired places in which to live and raise a family,” says Mayor Dennis Hanwell. You don't have to take the mayor's word for it. Last year, for the second time in less than a decade, Ohio Magazine named Medina as one of Ohio's top five great places in the State to live, work, and visit. The iconic Public Square, which retains its 1800s appearance, exemplifies Medina's historic flavor. "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

A Great Place to Live

wanted to be," Hanwell says.

The business occupancy rate on the Square testifies to the area's popularity, Hanwell points out. "The Square has been filled going back at least six years," he says. "If a vacancy opens up, there are four or five businesses lined up to fill it. New development in the city is tied into the Square and its surrounding areas.” "Medina’s Downtown Comprehensive Plan says that we can fill several hundred apartments within walking distance to downtown. It's a desirable location for people to live. We have projects where residential apartments are being developed above commercial spaces on or near the Square. The city is pretty well built out in terms of new houses, but we do have room to

Medina Area Magazine & Community Guide | 2020

develop downtown apartments and townhouses that will give more new residents the opportunity to enjoy our community. We would like to see some additional development near City Hall where we're putting up a new parking deck. The new $3.8 million deck, south of City Hall, is being built with the help of a $1 million State grant,” the Mayor explains. "The reason we got the grant was because the State legislators recognized the number of events we


have on our Square and the vitality of that area. There is always something happening there through the week and on the weekends. The Medina Farmers Market, which runs from May through October, is just one example." Another new development in the city is the Farmer's Exchange building, which has been historically restored and converted into a multi-use complex that includes a restaurant, a microbrewery, a coffee shop, a butcher shop and two floors of apartments. "It's a project that connects the city's past and future. In the early 1900’s, the Farmer's Exchange served as the central hub for farmers' needs throughout the county,” the Mayor explained.

A band playing in the gazebo at the park, a favorite latte from the corner coffee shop, fresh picked produce from the farmers market, ladies night shopping on the square…if that says “hometown” to you, come and visit our hometown.

“Medina continues to experience significant commercial and industrial growth throughout the city. In 2018, there were 26 new business start-ups, 24 existing business Ecomonic Development expansions, and 32 businesses that Director, Kimberly Marshall underwent renovations. The 2018 business investment in Medina was almost $154 million, a 33 percent improvement compared to $116 million in 2017,” said Economic Development Director Kimberly Marshall.

Our historic Victorian public square is chock full of one-of-a-kind shops, eating spots, meeting spots and points of interest, while museums, concerts, festivals, art fairs and parades entertain year-round. Located just 30 minutes from Cleveland and Akron.

Smith roads. Meanwhile, Spray Products Corp., a Pennsylvaniabased packager of aerosol and liquid consumer products, opened a new facility at the site of the former Valspar Corp. plant on Lake Road. "Spray Products moved in a couple years ago and they're now looking to add a third production line. A prosperous industrial sector”, she notes, “provides a strong tax base that helps to keep residential taxes low.” But more fun also is included in Medina's economic development. "With attractions like Castle Noel and High Voltage Karting, Medina is becoming an entertainment destination,” said Marshall. "Castle Noel brings busloads of visitors into the city, and as soon as they're done with the tour, they

patronize our shops and restaurants. Castle Noel communicates to the other business owner’s days in advance of when the buses are coming so they can be staffed up and ready. The developers of High Voltage Karting, an indoor electric go-cart track, have expanded their business in a 1910 foundry building to include an entertainment facility that will house a micro-brewery, restaurant, and conference center, along with arcade games and favorites such as duckpin bowling and bocce,” she added. Recent revisions in Ohio's liquor permit laws will also help to draw new restaurants into Medina's Downtown Community Revitalization District. "There are a limited number of liquor permits available in Medina," Marshall says. "If you wanted one you had to wait for an existing permit holder to sell theirs, and the cost could be exorbitant. A

new law has been enacted, allowing for the establishment of a revitalization district that expands the number of permits which can be awarded with the stipulation that at least 75 percent of their sales have to come from food. It's a tool to attract some exciting new restaurants into the city." Mayor Hanwell says the completion of the three-year Route 42 widening project has spurred new business development along the North Court Corridor.

“From 2017 thru 2019, this $34 million Ohio Department of Transportation project included new infrastructure and streets. Of this total, the city contributed about $2.4 million. When we replace a street, we replace all of the existing infrastructure under the street as well. This is a planned approach to avoid having to dig up newly installed streets in the future to fix water leaks and sewer problems”, he explains. Cooperation and collaboration also are a large part of the city's management approach. "We emphasize a collaborative approach among all of our departments, as well as with entities outside the local government. One example is the cooperation between the city's fire and police departments, which has resulted in saved lives. Every minute counts,” he stresses. “Police officers usually arrive at an emergency a minute or two before the Fire Department, so they're trained in CPR, administering Narcan for opioid overdoses, and other lifesaving measures so they can get started while the paramedics are on their way. We've had a number of incidents where those timesaving measures may have saved somebody's life. A couple of heart attack victims were recently delivered by ambulance to the Cleveland Clinic's Downtown Cath Lab within 53 minutes of the 911 call, which is less than half of the two-hour goal.” . "It's an unusual practice for police and fire to work collaboratively for the good of the patient," Hanwell says. "It doesn't work that way in most towns, but it's our mantra in Medina, however, other towns are taking notice. The Ohio Municipal League was so intrigued by what we're doing that they wrote an article about it and distributed it throughout the State. I have had phone calls from other cities asking about it," he notes.

The process of permitting and other approvals also has been streamlined for homeowners and local businesses. "When people want a permit or an inspection, we do whatever we can do to make it as effortless, seamless, and as efficient as possible. Instead of going from office to office, you can take care of just about everything at one counter. Making things easy for businesses is the reason why the city Building Department received from the State the David A. Smith, Jr. Building Department Excellence Award,” the Mayor states. Collaboration outside the city extends to Medina Township and Montville Township, both of which are now served by the city's Fire Department. "The city continues to look for opportunities to collaborate and provide services in a more cost-effective manner," Hanwell says. "We're blessed to have a vibrant historic district, outstanding schools, excellent medical facilities, and an industrial base that continues to grow, helping to keep taxes low for our residents. I am proud to say that all of these attributes make Medina one of Northeast Ohio's most desired places to live," he concludes. www.medinaoh.org

City Overview

Medina, a Place Where Hometown Meets History One might say that in Medina,

“everything old is new again”. Medina has had the recent good fortune to see the reclamation of three significant historic buildings, each with an important place in the town’s history, and each with a bright, new future.

Farmers Exchange

The original Farmers Exchange opened in 1904 and quickly became the agriculture center for Medina County at a time when over 90% of the county was composed of farms, and farmers were the most prosperous people. It provided a centralized location for farmers to trade, purchase farm-related supplies and equipment, and sell their agricultural products. The addition of a railroad spur further expanded the company’s business to other states. That structure burned down in December of 1915, due to highly combustible mill dust catching fire. It was rebuilt and burned again in 1935. The new 1935 three-story brick and concrete structure was as fireproof as modern building construction methods allowed. In 2018, investors purchased the property, which had been closed and condemned since 2016. They have completed a historical restoration of the building that now features a coffee shop, restaurant, meat market, farmer’s marketplace, brewery, and sixteen apartments.

The 1935 historic Farmer’s Exchange

Town Hall & Engine House Museum

The Medina Engine House was constructed in 1878, after the village suffered three major fires. It served as the community’s only fire house until the 1990’s. In 1994, the City Archive Commission and the Boardman Foundation began working on the project to establish the Medina Town Hall and Engine House Museum. The first floor museum opened to the public in November of 2013. The second floor of the building was the home of the village government and the police department until 1967. After that, it was used for storage. Funding from the Community Design Committee (CDC), the Van Epp Family Foundation, and a Capital Grant received by the city made it possible to restore the second floor for use as a public Community Room,

Medina Area Magazine & Community Guide | 2020

with a beautiful view of the Square and office space for the museum curator and CDC. Improvements were also made to the museum, the building restrooms, and the elevator, making the building fully handicapped accessible.

The Medina Town Hall and Engine House Museum


The Foundry

The Medina Foundry (circa 1910), located at the intersection of Foundry Street, Medina Street and West Friendship Street, started out making, among other items, cast iron cookware called Hollowware. This 135,000 square feet industrial building then became the home for Henry Furnace and Moncrief Furnace.

Voltage Indoor Karting, followed by an expansion to add an Outdoor Karting Track. The third phase of the project, called Foundry Social, includes a game area that features arcade games, bocce

ball, duckpin bowling, and trashcan volleyball. In addition, there is a 150 seat conference center and the MAD Brewing Company, a food and beverage operation with patio seating. The Foundry is now a regional attraction with entertainment for the entire family.

For years, this century-old, blighted building sat virtually empty until it was purchased by a group of investors in 2013 and was re-purposed into a multi-faceted entertainment venue. Their first renovation project brought us High

What are My Veterans Benefits? Veterans of the United States Uniformed Services

may be eligible for a broad range of programs and services provided by the Federal Government and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as well as various state and local governments. In most cases, eligibility for most benefits is based upon discharge from active military service other than dishonorable conditions. State and local benefits can sometimes be more complex and have other criteria associated with their eligibility such as residence requirements, service connection for a disability, receipt of a certain medal or award and in some cases income. In all cases, each veteran must be assessed for eligibility independently from their peers. No two veterans are alike when it comes to veterans benefits. Although several benefits can be cast across a broad demographic of veterans there are those benefits that are specifically designed to help our most at-risk veterans. Federal Government (VA) benefits include disability compensation, veterans pension, medical, education and

training, vocational rehabilitation and employment, home loan and life insurance. State of Ohio benefits include Ohio Veterans Homes (Ohio has two veterans’ homes in Georgetown and Sandusky), Ohio Veterans Bonus Program, state tax exemptions, Homestead Exemption, Military Injury Relief Fund (MIRF), financial assistance (from county office), state employment, Ohio Educator License Fee Elimination, Ohio National Guard Scholarship Program, Ohio War Orphans Scholarship, the Ohio Promise and recreation benefits such as Disabled Veteran Recreational Benefits, hunting & fishing licenses, boating licenses & registration, camping at Ohio state parks, active duty hunting and fishing licenses and camping discounts at Ohio state parks. Medina County benefits include financial assistance program, request for military records, proper submission of claims to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs through a VA accredited service officer, grave markers and flags, Notary Service, transportation and Veterans Identification Cards. As stated, all veterans are individuals and should be looked at individually when applying for their earned benefits. If you have any questions about veteran’s benefits, contact the Medina County Veterans Service Office at 330-722-9368, email us at veterans@medinacountyveterans.org or visit us on the web at www.medinacountyveterans.org.

community, and world. We are currently in the third year of our five year strategic plan. This plan was created through the collaboration of our students, families, staff, local businesses, and community members.

Homes & Real Estate Garlands aren’t just for Christmas and the staircase anymore. By draping entryways with fresh greens, it continues the aromatic scent of the holidays. Bowls of nuts and pinecones surrounding candles in winter scents let the wonderful smells linger throughout the air. Please don’t put away all the twinkle lights yet. Winter days are much shorter and the use of these little lights in jars or around small evergreens trees (live or artificial) give us a warm glow throughout the winter season. One of my favorite decorations are birch branches with small twinkle lights wrapped around the branches and displayed in a metal container or a large pottery vase by the fireplace. Fireplace mantles can be decorated with magnolia leaves and eucalyptus and sprigs of baby’s breath in combination with pine roping for a more winter feel. Keep your collection of Christmas trees out to create a winter forest on your mantle. Accessorize the accessories.

Lasting Seasonal Décor Seasonal décor can be so much more than just

decorating your mantle and tree for the Holiday Season. Here are a few designer tips to spread the cheer throughout the rest of the house with a lasting style. As a professional designer, I like to incorporate colors that can be transformed down the road into the next season such as Christmas to a Winter Solace. First and foremost, pick a theme – whether it be “nature inspired” or “all that glitters” carry that look through all the rooms in the house. For instance; lush evergreens of Christmas play nicely with the outdoor branches and lanterns for winter. This creates a softer transition between seasons without losing the past holiday color scheme. There is no need to redo the wreath in the front entry or the floral arrangement on the foyer table that warmly greeted your guests for the holidays. Simply switch out the ornaments for pinecones, succulents and branches. This added texture and the natural look will be long-lasting throughout the winter months. www.medinaoh.org

Dining rooms and kitchens can include that collection of Christmas houses displayed on a white furry runner with a spray of ferns to create a winter’s path. Small tea lights add to the magic of winter nights. Wood crates and doit-yourself snow flakes and gourds with purple succulents add a bright spot to the kitchen table or counter. Bring a little spirit into this busy space with an edible tree that stays up during winter. Stringing popcorn and hanging hard candy as the ornaments make it a great snack stop during the season. Clementines mixed with peppermints in an apothecary jar make a great centerpiece on the kitchen island. Or create a fruit tree complete with a star fruit on the top! This is a fun way to have the children help in the decorating process and learn to also enjoy the change of season. I hope you have enjoyed the new take on our color journey to add new life to existing holiday and winter decorations. Our homes are our oasis of comfort, pleasure and security. Enjoy them.

Keeping Medina County in the Know Medina County is one of the most outstanding places to

live in the country and no matter where you live in the area, you have access to outstanding schools, outstanding services and outstanding parks. In Ohio the county auditor is not only the Chief Fiscal Officer for the county, responsible for all financial transactions, but also the Chief Assessing Officer, responsible for assigning property values to each of the 84,000 plus properties in the county. In those roles my office is responsible for a huge amount of information regarding our county – and we want to make that information as accessible to you as possible. When you get a chance, I highly recommend visiting our website at medinacountyauditor.org. Here you can find out exactly what your house is appraised for, what your property taxes are, what your neighbor’s house sold for and more! Are you interested in knowing what services your property taxes are supporting? You can find out exactly where every penny of your tax payment goes by clicking on “Tax Info” and then “Tax Distribution” for this information. Need to know if you’re qualified for, or receiving the Owner Occupany tax reduction or the Seniors Homestead Exemption? Click on “Tax Programs” to find out about these breaks, and then click on “Real Estate” to see if it’s being applied to your home. If you’re new to the county we recommend you sign up for our “Weekend Update”, a Wednesday e-mail detailing not only information about county offices and programs available to you, but events and activities going on around the county. We are here to serve you every day. Never hesitate to reach out to us at 844-7228300, extension 9754 or mkovack@medinaco.org if we can ever be of assistance!

Community Information

What are the different types of Adoption?

Adoptive Homestudy Services

There are different

types of adoption which you may want to consider as you think about growing your family.

Adopting through an Agency Adoption agencies are licensed by the state to place children with adoptive parents. They can provide adoption services through a private or public adoption. A private adoption is where the agency works with a birthmother who wants to place her child for adoption. A public adoption is where the agency assists in locating children who are in foster care due to abuse or neglect and places them with qualified adoptive parents.

Stepparent Adoption A stepparent adoption occurs following a divorce and involves adoption by the spouse unrelated to the child. The process is simple if both birth parents’ consent.

Relative Adoptions Building Blocks

K9 Officer Nero…. Keeping Medina Safe Recognizing the importance of a police K9 program,

Chief Kinney began researching police dog trainers to implement a program for the Medina Police Department. Excel K9, located in Hiram Ohio, became the selected vendor for procurement of the canine. Chief Kinney selected Officer Mike Lyon, a four-year veteran at the time, to be the handler. After a thorough dog selection process, Officer Lyon and Chief Kinney selected Nero, a German Shepherd from Slovakia, to become the next Medina Police Department K9. Officer Lyon and Nero attended an eight-week training course at Excel K9 where they learned to operate as a team. After their final certification in April of 2018, the canine team was deployed. Nero was successfully certified in narcotics, tracking, building search, area search, article search, and criminal apprehension. Since being deployed, Nero has become an integral part of the City of Medina’s efforts to reduce drug related crimes throughout the city. Nero has also assisted the department with apprehending criminals that have fled from crime scenes or have threatened to be violent with police officers. Although Nero is serious when it comes to his

job, he also has a pleasant demeanor when his enforcement actions are not immediately needed. Nero is taken to the schools in Medina and shows up frequently to demonstrations to show off his skills to residents of Medina. Residents find Nero to be approachable and more than willing to receive pets after demonstrations. Nero has been an excellent addition to the police force and is looking forward to a long career keeping the residents of Medina safe.

Mercy’s Door Pet Rescue

When One Door Closes, Our Doors Open! “I am passionate about

saving animals,” states Evangelene Brown, owner of Salon Evangelene. “Mercy’s Door Pet Rescue is the non-profit rescue that I support. They are a responsible rescue that focuses on saving wonderful dogs, who through no fault of their own, have ended up at a shelter. MDPR is a volunteer run rescue that operates through donations only.” If you are considering a rescued dog, Evangelene recommends working with a reputable rescue such as MDPR, as they have already evaluated the dogs for behavior, health and wellness while the dog has been fostered. The rescue knows the dog’s temperament and compatibility with children, cats and other dogs, which saves you time and ensures success with your new furry friend. For more information on becoming a foster, adopter, or even just donating & volunteering, check out Mercy’s Door Pet Rescue at www.mercysdoorpetrescue.org.

A World Where Everyone has a Decent Place to Live In 1976 Millard and Linda Fuller gave birth to a vision that

believed everyone deserved a decent place to live. Over the last 43 years Habitat for Humanity has improved the shelter of over 22 million people. Habitat for Humanity of Medina County joined with this vision and over the last 28 years has built 41 homes across our county. This was accomplished because of our committed volunteers both on our build site and ReStore, along with generous financial supporters of Habitat. As we move forward our mission remains the same. To provide decent, safe and affordable shelter to qualified households in Medina County. We strive to put God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope. We welcome you to stop by our ReStore! Currently located at 342 W. Smith Road in Medina, we will be relocating to 233 Lafayette Road in March. Visit our website at www.medinacountyhabitat.org to learn more about how you can partner with us on this mission.
