It is my pleasure to present the 2021-22 Wadsworth Community Guide. This valuable resource is updated annually and provides information about our City and local organizations while showcasing the many businesses and people that make Wadsworth the great place that it is. This publication is provided free of charge due to the generous sponsorships from organizations and businesses in the community. This has certainly been a time like no other. It has been over a year now that COVID-19 changed the way we live. Many were deeply affected and my heart is with each and every one of you that experienced hardship during this unprecedented time. Thankfully, brighter days are ahead and we can all look forward to a time where we can fully return to the way of life we all enjoy. Although COVID-19 certainly caused adjustments to be made, like other essential businesses, the City was able to adapt to ensure the delivery of quality services that we 2

all depend upon. For a community our size, Wadsworth offers an unusually wide array of services to the residents and businesses. Wadsworth’s municipally owned electric, cable, internet, water, sewer, trash and phone services set us apart from many other cities, making us truly unique. This year, more than ever, our internet services were relied upon as so many were home for work and school. You may hear me say “Wadsworth is the place to be!” and I truly believe that. We are so fortunate to have the numerous downtown events, superb schools, variety of professional services, numerous stores and popular shopping opportunities, as well as many locations in which to relax, stay healthy and have fun. Whether you are looking for a homey café for breakfast or lunch, a more sophisticated dining experience, or a variety of shopping choices, Wadsworth has what you’re looking for. I invite you to come visit our city on the first Friday evening of each month in the downtown square. See for yourself what makes Wadsworth “A Community Unmatched”. Additional information can be found on the City’s website at  www.wadsworthcity.com, where you will also find links to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the opportunity on the home page to sign up for emergency alerts from the Wadsworth Emergency Notification System (WENS).  Robin Laubaugh, Mayor, City of Wadsworth

Wadsworth

A Community Unmatched By Ken McEntee

Last summer, amid the pandemic, Wadsworth resident

Laurie Beal spent $100 on a broken-down camper, which she gutted and converted into a mobile supply station for homeless people. Beal, director of the local Garage Ministry, of Youth for Christ, regularly fills the vehicle with necessities like blankets, cots, bottled water, and socks, and delivers them to homeless shelters and encampments. In December, recognizing her years of helping teens and others in the Wadsworth community, Beal was one of 50 “Mazda Heroes” across the U.S. to CITY OF WADSWORTH receive an MX-5 Miata 100th Anniversary Special Edition from the auto maker in celebration of “omotenashi” - the Japanese culture of putting other’s needs first. Beal promptly sold the $40,000 vehicle to fund a pontoon boat that teens can use on Chippewa Lake, says Janie Parish, executive director of the Wadsworth Chamber of Commerce, who nominated Beal for the Mazda honor. “I’ve neverOF met anybody so unselfish and so willing CITY to justWADSWORTH roll up their sleeves and do whatever it takes as A C Parish OMMUNITYsays. U NMATCHED Laurie,” “When I heard about the Mazda Heroes promotion and read the criteria for nominations, I immediately said, ‘That sounds just like Laurie.’” Wadsworth, Parish says, is a generous, close-knit community where people routinely help one another, particularly in times of need.

It’s one of the qualities that makes Wadsworth a “Community Unmatched,” the tagline that plays on the town’s rich history in the production of wooden matches, notes Mayor Robin Laubaugh. “We have amazing people, and organizations who are here to help,” Parish says. “Wadsworth FISH, for example, helps when you’re in a tough spot with utilities and rent so that you can stay in your home and have heat and water. Marion’s Closet helps with clothing and other items donated by people in the community.” Last year, Wadsworth residents and the city government quickly stepped up to help local businesses survive the pandemic, Laubaugh says. The city’s “Wadsworth Eats” and “Wadsworth Shops” initiatives are two examples of that support. “Many of our businesses were quite concerned about survival,” the mayor recalls. “Restaurants were caught off guard by the directive from the state that stopped indoor dining. So, we called all the restaurants and asked whether they would be open for carry-out. We collected their hours and other data and put it on a website, making it very convenient for the businesses and the residents who wanted to support them.” Seeing the success of Wadsworth Eats, the city expanded the program to the retail sector. “We realized that the retailers could use help as well,” Laubaugh said. “So, any sort of retail establishment was able to have a link at “Wadsworth Shops” to

let people know their hours, whether they were serving customers and their promotions. We kept that up to date and it’s still available today. I think these initiatives helped a lot. We promoted it heavily through social media, our city newsletter and by other means. Many of our residents were very mindful of our local businesses and wanted to support them.” Despite the pandemic, Laubaugh says, 11 new businesses opened in Wadsworth in 2020, while two others, in the manufacturing sector, were involved in significant expansion projects. “It was a pretty good year considering many things were shut down,” Laubaugh says. One of the city’s largest employers, Rohrer Corporation, a retail packaging provider located in the Wadsworth Corporate Park, increased its manufacturing space by 20 percent, to 200,000 square feet by creating the company’s first “Center of Excellence” in September. Laubaugh said the $13.6 million expansion retained 246 jobs and will add an additional 60 new full-time positions. The mayor added that Advanced Plastics has outgrown its facility in the Corporate Park and planned to start construction on an expansion this spring. Phil Nye, president of Advanced Plastics, said he chose to stay and expand in Wadsworth primarily because of his present employees. “We have a real good base of current employees and I didn’t want to move out of range where I would lose them,” Nye said. “Wadsworth has a lot of diversity in business and retail and it is an environment and a location where people like to work.” Several other expansions are expected to be announced this year, Laubaugh says. Along with new business and expansion projects, ten Wadsworth businesses have recently gotten facelifts, thanks to a $20,000 grant from Heritage Ohio, a non-profit organization that supports downtown renovation. The city’s $20,000 match provided $40,000 for which business could apply with matching funds. “Some of the Downtown facades were dramatically improved, which has been very well received by

our residents,” Laubaugh says. Grant money is also being used to improve two of the city’s flagship parks, says Robert Patrick, director of public service. “We received more than a half million dollars in state funding that will be used for projects at Memorial Park and Durling Park over the next two years,” he says. Improvements at Memorial Park, the city’s largest, will include upgrading the playground, restrooms, volleyball courts, baseball and softball fields, pavilions, the roadway and parking lot, trails, and tennis courts. “Memorial Park is heavily used and in need of a facelift,” Patrick says. “There’s a lake there. The high school football stadium is located there. Lots of people get enjoyment out of it, and we want to make improvements that people are going take advantage of for many years.” Durling Park improvements will include projects at the playground area, tennis courts, basketball courts and the baseball field. Publicly owned utilities provide a benefit to Wadsworth businesses and residents, says Patrick. Along with electrical power, the local government provides water, trash collection and cable television to residents and businesses, all on a single bill. The municipally operated CityLink cable and Internet service is very reliable and offers high-speed Internet access up to 1 Gig, which is appealing to people and important for business, Patrick emphasizes. The city recently began to offer data storage as well. “We offer an umbrella of high-quality services at a low cost, and businesses and residents take pride in knowing that if their cable or their electric goes down, the city will take care of it almost immediately.” Wadsworth’s two municipally owned solar energy farms, which were installed in 2020, places the city among the pioneers in clean energy production, he says. “Those two solar fields combined have enough power to electrify about a quarter of the city on any normal day,” Patrick says. “Solar power is a good renewable energy source that is starting to gain popularity here, where in the past it was something you saw mainly out West or down South where they have a lot of sun and limited clouds.”

PLAYTIME: Memorial Park is a popular recreational facility for residents and will receive many improvements in the coming years.

Wadsworth Public Library

Continues to Provide Service Amid the Pandemic

While the COVID-19 pandemic has brought its

challenges, we are proud of the work our staff has done to safely reopen Wadsworth Public Library. Following a temporary building closure, the Library developed a curbside service model in May 2020, then reopened to regular, pre-pandemic hours with limited service at the end of June. We continue to acquire new materials and host virtual programs for patrons of all ages. Free home delivery is available within the Wadsworth City School District. For more information, visit www.wadsworthlibrary.com. This past winter, we conducted a community survey to help us plan for further reopening that will provide the best service and value. We thank everyone for their continued support and look with hope to the coming year.

Anyone that has been affected by obesity

can tell you — it’s hard to lose weight and keep it off. Being overweight has both metabolic and hereditary components. It’s important to partner with a medical team who specializes in obesity medicine to help you develop a plan for long-term success. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than two-thirds of adults in the United States are overweight or obese, including nearly 70% of Ohioans. Severe obesity also increases the risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, obstructive sleep apnea, GERD and many types of cancer. The Summa Health Weight Management Institute offers several structured, multidisciplinary approaches to successful, long-term weight loss. Nonsurgical Weight Management: Focuses on modification of meal plan, review of medications impacting weight, management of eating behaviors, exercise and lifelong strategies to ensure maintenance of

Homes & Real Estate

What is a Home Inspection? Buying a home is the largest single investment an individual will ever make. To minimize unpleasant surprises and unexpected difficulties, homebuyers should learn as much as they can about the house before they buy it. A home inspection may identify the need for major repairs or builder oversights, as well as the need for maintenance to keep it in good shape. Through the home inspection process, homebuyers will have a better understanding about their prospective house, which will allow them to make decisions with confidence. If a homeowner is planning to sell their home, a home inspection can give them the opportunity to make repairs that will put the house in better selling condition. A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation. On average, a single-family home inspection usually takes two to four hours to complete, though this is heavily dependent on the size and condition of the home. After the inspection process, the inspector will

send the client an inspection report (often within 24-48 hours) that covers their findings, complete with pictures, analysis and recommendations. The standard home inspector’s report covers the condition of the home’s heating and central air conditioning systems; interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, basement and structural components. It is important to note that there may be some exceptions. If certain areas are inaccessible (locked door, tenant’s belongings in the way) or unsafe conditions (severely steep roofs, poor structural integrity) the inspector will explain the situation and note that they were not able to assess that specific area or system. A professional home inspection is an examination and objective assessment of the current condition of a house. A home inspector will not pass or fail a house, but rather describe its physical condition and indicate what components and systems may need major repair or replacement. A home inspection is not an appraisal and will not determine the home’s market value. It is also not a municipal inspection and does not verify local code compliance. — Condensed from the American Society of Home Inspectors.

Senior Living

Supporting Successful Aging! Due to the health concerns and state orders resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Wadsworth’s Soprema Senior Center and Cafe’s building has been closed since March of 2020. We are hopeful that we will be reopened in the summer of 2021 and returned to in-person activities, although most likely on a limited basis. During the pandemic, the Center became “a Center without Walls” by moving quickly to virtual programming and supporting members by phone calls, emails, and drive through events. We will continue to do this until we can re-open fully and many of these features will continue into the future. With the virtual programming, there are still ample opportunities for a variety of both traditional and contemporary senior programming offered online or over the phone. Seniors are invited to engage in recreational, educational, informational, seasonal, and social programs from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Not yet a member? The Soprema Senior Center is still accepting member registrations remotely! Membership is free and open to residents age 55+ in Wadsworth and surrounding communities. Please complete our digital member form located at: http://ssc.wadsworthcity.com/signup/. Staff can also process member registration over the phone at 330-335-1513. The Soprema Senior Center is supported by the City of Wadsworth, the Wadsworth Older Adults Foundation, and our Professional Friends. We accept donations from the community through the Wadsworth Older Adults Foundation. The Foundation is an integral part of the offerings that the Center is able to give to the community and provides assistance and guidance in many different ways. Please support the Foundation through

BINGO! It won't be too much longer until we can all get together and have a good time playing bingo and many other activities at the Soprema Senior Center.

participation in activities, supporting fundraising, or becoming active guests. We look forward to the time when we can reconnect in person to Support Successful Aging! For up-to-date information, visit www.wadsworthcity.com/Soprema-SeniorCenter. Stay healthy and strong!
