Welcome to Strongsville

Our community may be a vibrant suburb of nearly 45,000 residents, but it has retained the feel of a small hometown driven by family and community pride. A strong sense of community camaraderie and the caring support of neighbors define the Strongsville way of life.

Strongsville is a cohesive community of parents, seniors, business people, civic organizations, faith-based groups and many others who work together to make the town an ideal place to live, work and raise a family.

Few towns can match Strongsville’s diverse balance of modern amenities, abundant parks and recreational opportunities — all in a location that offers convenient access to anywhere.

While the city’s tax base and general fund are driven by a strong roster of light manufacturing facilities and corporate offices that employ thousands of talented people,

our bustling retail and service regions provide myriad convenient dining and shopping options for Strongsville residents. The generous sponsorship of those businesses — many which are local, family-owned operations — provide an essential part of the Strongsville way of life. Their generous sponsorship has made this annual Strongsville Image Book and Community Guide possible.

Please consider patronizing them when you go out to shop and dine.

Now in its 21st year, the annual Strongsville Image Book & Community Guide is an anticipated and valued reference that celebrates some of our town’s leaders and leading businesses. Whether you are a resident, a Strongsville business owner or a visitor, I’m confident that this magazine will help you to better familiarize yourself with our wonderful community.

Sincerely,

MAYOR’S WELCOME

Focused On The Future

A highway traveler driving into Strongsville may first experience the city’s vibrant shopping, dining and service areas.

But community residents, while appreciating the abundance of convenient amenities, may also tend to cherish the more leisurely, family focused aspects of the town, represented largely by numerous parks and recreation areas.

“There isn’t a better balance of business and recreational amenities than you’ll find here in Strongsville,” insisted Mayor Thomas Perciak, noting the myriad youth sports, arts, scouting and other activities available to kids and adults.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the size of Strongsville’s green space alone is larger than the entirety of many full cities in western Cuyahoga County. Most notable among the park spaces is the Cleveland Metroparks Mill Stream Run reservation, which nearly bisects the town from the northwest to the southeast. Perciak calls it the “jewel of the city.”

This year, construction is expected to begin on another recreational area that will transform the town center area that spans from the Walter F. Ehrnfelt Recreation & Senior Center to the iconic Strongsville Commons, which serves as the venue for Strongsville’s most popular community gathering events, like the holiday Winter Wonderland and Christmas lighting ceremony, the Strongsville Chamber of Commerce’s summer Homecoming Festival, the Strongsville City Club’s annual Rib Burnoff and Arts in Strongsville’s Art & Chalk Walk event for budding artists of the future.

The Town Center Enhancement and Walkability Initiative will create a walkable community gathering place that will include a public pavilion, a splash pad, a new all inclusive playground, courts for tennis, pickleball and other sports and a food truck area. The new recreational areas, to be located just west of the senior center and adjacent to the Strongsville Backyard Preserve nature trails, will connect to the Commons via a stroll along the town’s Freedom Trail and

past the Strongsville Historical Village and the Strongsville branch of the Cuyahoga County Library — the busiest branch in the county.

The project, which Perciak said has been “a long time coming,” is the result of cooperation and partnerships among public agencies, civic organizations and the faith community, which Perciak said work in cooperation to make Strongsville a better place to live and raise families. Adding to county, state, regional and federal grants, organizations like the Rotary Club of Strongsville, the Strongsville Chamber of Commerce, the Strongsville City Club and Southwest General Health Center made contributions to the project.

The project began with a survey of residents, the mayor recalled. “We did a survey to assess the needs of the community and to find out what was important to residents,” he said. “An outdoor pool or splash pad was a high priority. Many people pointed out that the existing Castletown playground is outdated and needs work to make it more usable for children with disabilities, so it’s going to be replaced with the latest equipment. Those are two of the major components of the Town Center project.”

The pavilion, Perciak said, is another important part of the project. “Years ago people never dreamed of having a wedding in an outdoor pavilion, but today it is very popular,” he said.

“This will give people a fresh air venue for weddings, graduations and other parties.”

Construction is expected to start in the spring and should take about a year to complete, Perciak said. “It will be a big new piece to what is already an ideal community,” he said. “Although Strongsville is one of the most populous cities in Cuyahoga County, it still has the feel of a small home town community.”

Because of the growth of the city’s business sector, income tax collections — which account for the bulk of its general fund — have increased from $29 million in 2012 to almost $41 million in 2021, without raising the city’s two percent tax rate, Perciak noted. “That’s why economic development is so important,” he said. “The growth in our tax base allowed us to continue to deliver services, even during bad times like the pandemic. We’re proud of the services we provide. We spend half our budget on safety, which is another reason why people want to live in Strongsville.”

Among 59 cities in Cuyahoga County, Perciak said, Strongsville’s appraised real estate value is second only to Cleveland’s. “We have 16,000 homes, compared to Cleveland’s 112,000 homes, and our valuation is higher than cities like Parma, which has almost double the number of homes we have,” he said. “Buying a home in Strongsville has proven to be an excellent investment.”

CITY OVERVIEW

A Flurry of Activity

A new restaurant in town is always sure to set social media abuzz. And there has been plenty to post about in Strongsville during the past year, noted Brent Painter, the city’s director of economic development. “We’ve seen a lot of dining and retail space fill up,” Painter said. “The Chamber of Commerce has been very busy with its ribbon cuttings.”

construction and expansions last year we had project after project after project going on,” Painter said. “During the last three or four months of 2022 alone, we had announcements of more than 500 new jobs in our business parks. That would normally be considered a great number for a full year.”

Significantly, Painter said, Strongsville is drawing attention from companies around the world. “It’s been awesome to see a global presence here, with companies like CCL, of Canada, and Schaeffler USA, of Germany, setting up divisions and North American headquarters here in Strongsville,” Painter said.

Painter said the city’s location at the crossroads of two major interstate trucking routes, its pro-business philosophy and the infrastructure to support manufacturing operations are among the reasons why the city’s four business parks outperformed most others in the region. “We’ve had some desirable buildings available and we have strived over the years to maintain a solid reputation as a city that wants to work to help our business community prosper,” he said.”

From a flurry of new Mexican and Southwestern restaurants and burger joints to Asian cuisine and dessert shops, Strongsville, more than ever before, offers myriad fine dining and carryout options to satisfy just about any palate.

But tucked away from the heavy traffic, on roads less frequently traveled, light industrial businesses and corporate offices generate the bulk of the city’s income tax revenue. “Eighty-two percent of the city’s general fund revenue comes from income tax collections, and the majority of the income tax comes from our business parks,” Painter explains.

Like the thriving retail and dining sector, Painter said the city’s business parks boomed in 2022. “Between new

Amenities that make a town desirable to working families also are an important factor, Painter said. “Businesses today want to be able to recruit from a talented workforce, so being in a town where people want to live has become more important than ever,” he said. “We have a lot of amenities in town, from the restaurants and shopping to recreational areas like the Cleveland Metroparks and the new Town Center project that will soon be under construction. Those types of things help employers when they are looking to build their workforce. Strongsville is truly a place where people want to live and work.”

Painter said the number and diversity of businesses in Strongsville helps to protect the city from reliance on one or two major employers. None of the city’s largest employerswhich include PNC Bank, Cleveland Clinic and the Strongsville City Schools – contributes more than three percent of its income

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

tax base. “Some cities’ biggest employer accounts for a higher percentage of tax revenue than our top 25 combined,” he says. “That puts a city in a real bind if that company moves or goes out of business.”

Among the major business park projects completed or underway as the calendar flipped to 2023 was the announced expansion of Momentive Technologies manufacturing facility and global headquarters. Momentive, a global provider of advanced materials technology serving the semiconductor industry, is in an ideal position to supply the Intel plant that is now under development near Columbus, Painter said. “They’re really critical to the growth of semiconductors in this area,” he said. Momentum said the expansion is expected to result in almost 100 new jobs.

Among the other notable projects that were completed or started in 2022 were:

• Infinium Walls new 120,000 square foot corporate headquarters in the Strongsville Business & Technology Park, become fully operational. The $10.4 million investment is expected to result in several hundred new jobs, the company said.

• Construction started on CCL’s new 105,700 square foot North American headquarters in the Strongsville Business & Technology Park. With an $11 million investment, about 250 jobs will be retained in Strongsville, with about 132 more expected to be added.

• New York-based Mechanical Rubber, a producer of rubber, plastic and metal materials used in the defense, industrial and transportation markets, purchased an 80,000 square foot manufacturing facility. The company is the third largest manufacturer of bus door and window seals in the U.S.

• Schaeffler, a global manufacturer of aftermarket auto parts, relocated its North American business to Strongsville with the lease of a 250,000 square foot office and distribution facility.

• CertainTeed, a construction material manufacturer, leased a 109,000 square foot manufacturing plant.

• Swagelok Co., a Solon-based manufacturer of fluid system products, continued to grow its Strongsville facility, committing to creating 75 new jobs.

Painter said Strongsville is a member of the Aerozone Alliance, a hub of innovation in the arena of aerospace and smart manufacturing based its proximity to the NASA Glenn Research Center and Cleveland Hopkins Airport.

“Our master plan says we should play a regional role in economic development, and this is one of the bigger regional attempts to spur economic development,” he said. “The idea of the alliance is to develop a master plan to see whether we can leverage NASA and the airport and our strategic locations to create jobs.”

Positive and Proactive

The Strongsville Police Youth Academy (SPYA) is an interactive program between our community youth and the police, designed to facilitate a mutual understanding between the police officer and the student. We believe the experience allows students and police officers to meet and interact in a positive, proactive setting.

Purpose of the Academy:

Is to facilitate a better understanding, through education and dialogue, between students and our officers. This experience will serve to dispel suspicions and misconceptions students may have about the police in general. The academy will create a growing nucleus of responsible, well-informed students regarding police services.

By providing students with insight into the Strongsville

Police Department (SPD), we sincerely hope to promote a partnership and an interest in pursuing a career path toward law enforcement with the Strongsville Police Department.

Who Can Attend the Strongsville Police Youth Academy?

The SPYA is open to all qualifying Strongsville High School students in their senior year. Each student must successfully pass an application process to attend.

What is the Curriculum Like?

It’s a 30-hour course, one day a week for three hours over 10 weeks. Lessons utilize interactive teaching methods that provide similar information found in a traditional basic police academy without the physical rigors associated with an accredited academy. The curriculum consists of both classroom and real-world scenario applications. Topics include:

Dear Parents and Community Members:

It is my honor and privilege to serve as Strongsville City Schools’ Superintendent. Our District serves more than 5,600 students and consists of one preschool, five elementary schools (grades K-5), one middle school (grades 6-8) and one high school (grades 9-12). Through our goals of Academic Achievement & Growth, Financial Prudence, and Community Engagement, we are building a District of excellence and innovation and will continue our drive in becoming a premier District in the region and state.

These goals help to guide our work and ensure that we are preparing our students for the many paths they will follow after graduation from Strongsville High School. Whether it is continuing their education in a college/university setting, beginning their journey in a career, or serving in a branch of our military, students are developing the durable skills necessary to be successful and meaningful contributors to society. Twenty-seven Advanced Placement courses, sixteen honors courses, and eleven Industrial Technology courses are just a few of the choices students have in our robust curriculum offerings.

Remaining fiscally responsible with the funding and resources entrusted to us is of the highest importance to our District. As a District, we will be able to meet and exceed our commitment to the community to be financially stable through 2026-27 due to this stewardship by creating additional efficiencies to maximize the funding received. The efforts of our Treasurer’s Office have not gone unnoticed – they have received the Association of School Business Officials International Meritorious Budget Award for six straight years, recognizing excellence in preparation and presentation of our District’s budget, and have also been recognized for the third straight year with the 2021 Auditor of State Award with Distinction for its Financial Audit.

Without our community’s support, Strongsville Schools would not be where it is today. We have extremely engaged parents and community members, who collaborate with our teachers to support their students. Our PTA Council, PTA building units, Strongsville Education Foundation, and various booster groups continue to be intimately involved through fundraisers, volunteer hours, financial grants, and scholarships to support the work of our students and teachers inside and outside of the classroom at each grade level. Our local civic organizations and business community are also great advocates and partners, as we continue to develop additional ways for these organizations to participate in the growth and development of our students.

Our goal at Strongsville City Schools is to build and strengthen a collaborative atmosphere, dedicated to always working in the best interest of our students. We need you as a partner for our District to continue reaching our shared goal of excellence for our students and community. We appreciate the important connections being made between our schools, students, teachers, staff, and our overall community.

I look forward to working with our parents and community in the coming year. If I can be of any assistance, please contact me at 440.572.7010 or cryba@scsmustangs.org. You can also visit our website (www.strongnet.org) for additional information about our District. Go Mustangs!

WHEN EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE MATTER

Even though dental offices can be found on almost every corner, exceptional practices are diamonds in the rough. And yes, Aerni Dental is one of those extraordinary diamonds.

Practicing for over 30 years, Dr. William Aerni is a general dentist who also performs dental implants and orthodontics. He’s an out-ofthe-ordinary type of dentist who takes the time to listen to his patients and is never in a hurry.

A graduate from Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Aerni earned the distinguished Robert James Award in recognition of his dedication to the pursuit of excellence in general dentistry and implantology. To this day, his mission is to provide the Gold Standard of Care to each patient and to leave them feeling happier, healthier, and more confident. To keep himself and his team at the top of their game, they pursue countless hours of continuing education–far more than is required.

Transparency, that is what I absolutely love about Dr. Aerni and his staff. Any recommendations are backed up with photos that clearly demonstrate the necessity of the recommended service. Technology, second to none, Dr. Aerni stays on top of what is new on the market and brings it to his clients. It is incredible how much can be accomplished in a single visit that used to take multiple visits. Education, they are great at explaining what it takes to have a good oral hygiene routine at home also.” – Leigh Anne B.

To achieve the Gold Standard of Care for each patient, Dr. Aerni designed a world-class facility with state-of-the-art technology so patients could have all their needs met in one location. He chose to build his practice overlooking the Metroparks because he wanted his patients to be able to experience the calming beauty of nature while receiving the best dental care available.

In addition to having his office in Strongsville, Dr. Aerni and his wife raised their five children here too. As a family man, he understands the challenges and pressures families face. It’s one of the reasons why he is passionate about Tip Edge orthodontics. He believes it’s the most comfortable, quickest, and cost effective way to achieve that beautiful smile for a lifetime.

While not all dental practices offer dental implants, it’s been a

common procedure at Aerni Dental for over 29 years. Dr. Aerni has the experience you won’t find at most general dentist practices. He became a highly skilled implant surgeon by learning from the pioneers in the industry. Names you most likely never heard of, but dentists who are among the “who’s who” in dental implants.

Investing in the latest technology for better patient outcomes has always been what sets Aerni Dental apart from other dental practices. New technology to Aerni Dental is LANAP® Laser Surgery and X-Guide 3D Navigation. The LANAP Laser is used to treat gum disease, and regenerate bone and tissue. It is minimally invasive, destroys bacteria, and offers patients quicker recovery time than traditional surgery.

An oral surgeon recommended major surgery for an issue I was experiencing for years. Dr. Aerni recommended a different nonsurgical treatment that alleviated my pain and corrected my issue, saving me from undergoing surgery! I highly recommend him and his practice!” – T. K.

The X-Guide® is the latest advanced dental implant technology that allows Dr. Aerni ultimate precision in implant placement. This means minimally invasive surgery with smaller incisions and faster recovery. Less than 1% of dentists offer this technology in the U.S.

When he’s not with patients, Dr. Aerni can be found teaching dental implant surgery to dentists at the Midwest Implant Institute, the very same place he began his own implantology studies. He also enjoys outdoor activities and making memories with his growing family.

I have four teenage children and have taken them to Aerni Dental since my oldest was six years old. We have spent countless hours at the practice for bi-annual checkups, fillings, four sets of braces and whatever dental emergency my kids created. Since Dr. Aerni’s staff is fantastic at scheduling for a family, mom even got her appointments in too!!!! Dr. Aerni and his staff always took care of us like we were family, and their skills and professionalism always shined through. They have state-of-the-art equipment, and make every effort to ensure you understand your options and follow up care. I don’t know how he does it, but Dr. Aerni also hires the absolute best hygienists and office staff. Want to give a special shout out to Jenny as she has cared for us our entire tenure at the practice. Since she has four kids as well, I looked forward to sharing war stories on my visits. Great service and great staff - can’t say enough about Dr. Aerni and his team!!!” –

The mission of Crisis Response

Canines is to provide strength, comfort, and emotional support to individuals, families, communities, and first responders experiencing intense traumatic emotions in the aftermath of critical incidents.

Crisis Response Canines (CRC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of certified K9 teams throughout the United States who have dedicated thousands of hours comforting those impacted by personal or community crisis events. Our highly trained K9 teams are experienced in psychological first aid and certified to work effectively in crisis environments supporting anyone affected by mass shootings, large-scale accidents, violence, abuse, tragic death, suicides, terrorism, natural disasters (fire, flood, hurricane, etc.), and more.

Our goal is to establish a nationwide network of canine crisis response teams who can be deployed immediately where they are needed most. CRC also offers local volunteer services

that are provided by the handlers and their canine partners, offering a level of comfort and calmness that only a canine can.

CRC has two team levels: CRC Comfort and CRC Operational Deployment. Our CRC Comfort Teams serve as the foundation for our visits to hospitals, schools, businesses, speaking events, and other similar opportunities. The CRC Operational Deployment teams have the capability to respond to National Crisis Events. Additional training completed by the Operational Deployment teams include the AKC Canine Good Citizen Advanced (CGCA), Canine Good Citizen Urban (CGCU) Certification, CRC Crisis Working Dog Certification, Law Enforcement Defensive Systems Crisis Working Dog Certification, and specific courses associated with healthcare, mental, & behavioral health.

Our volunteer members and their canine partners are background checked, and must complete a comprehensive series of nationally recognized certifications and commit to ongoing

training with annual re-testing/re-certifications as required to perform duties.

For more information about these wonderful dogs and their compassionate handlers, visit www.crisiscanines.org

Unlocking the Potential

In 1947, through a partnership between the Cleveland Rotary Club, Cleveland Metroparks, and Achievement Centers for Children (known then as the Society for Crippled Children), 52 acres of land was purchased in Strongsville with a vision of “providing a health vacation program for children.”

In the 1940s and 50s, many children with disabilities were institutionalized or home bound, so Camp Cheerful provided a “vacation from their disability,” as one camper expressed.

Through the years, Camp Cheerful grew and adapted to meet the disability community’s evolving needs. Most recently, in 2015, the Clubhouse was added to accommodate the River Rock Adult Day Program.

We are grateful to our visionary leaders, generous supporters, and dedicated staff and volunteers who have made Camp Cheerful all it is today.
