North Canton City Council's plan to improve Main Street gets green light By DOTTIE McGREW It is full speed ahead on a $2.25 million project to renovate the heart of North Canton's Main St. City Council Monday night unanimously approved plans to curb, gutter and repave Main St. between Bachtel and Charlotte Streets. Water, storm and sanitary sewer lines will be replaced. Decorative lighting, street trees and other enhancements will be added. The city, which has no debt, is footing the bill for the improvements. "One of the most difficult things for a municipality to do is conceive a vision and make that vision become a reality. The city has an opportunity to establish the character for our community that will take us into the 21st century. This is an historic night,"said Council President Daryl Revoldt. "North Canton will be a show- place when this is completed — a place where other cities will come to see what we have done. This outstanding program will be done with funds that are available,"said Coun- cilman-at-large Paul Blohm. City Administrator John Boyajian said that the Main St. project is part of the city's on-going plan to improve the core area of the city. This year North Canton plans to spend $2.5 million to upgrade older residential streets near the center of the city. Scheduled for work are Adena, Hower, Witwer and Wise Streets plus Lindy Lane from Portage to Glenwood. Also scheduled for improvement and water line replacement are Schneider St. SE to Bachtel St. SE. The design prepared by CT Consultants of North Canton calls for the intersection of Main St. and Maple St. to be outlined by bricks. The two streets form the city square. Bricks will also border sidewalks between the curb and the street from Bachtel to Charlotte Streets. At the square, the decorative sidewalks will extend one block east to McKinley St. and one block west to Ream St. Two-foot-high decorative brick walls will separate sidewalks from Main St. parking areas. About 65 reproduction period street lights will be installed. Examples of styles being considered by council are on display in Bitzer Park. Approximately 18 dwarf ornamental trees will be planted to fill in open spaces along Main St. Beautification of Main St. will be more than skin deep, officials say. The 60- to 70-year-old water, storm and sanitary sewer lines will be replaced. East Ohio Gas Co. plans to replace their lines during construction. Utility poles will be removed and service relocated to the rear of businesses along Main St. Left turn arrows will be installed at the intersections of Main and Maple Streets and Main and Charlotte Streets. Officials plan to bid the project in early March and begin construction in April. Improvements should be completed by November, officials said. Two lanes of traffic on Main St. will be open during construction. Traffic may be slowed but will not be stopped, officials said. Improvements from Bachtel to Charlotte Streets are the first phase part ofa three-part plan to revitalize all of Main St. The second phase includes improvements from Bachtel St. south to Schneider St.; the third phase runs from Charlotte St. north to Seventh St. The city should be in the planning stage for Phases two and three in early 1995, according to Boyajian. The most recent major construction projects on Main St. were the city fire station in 1972, city hall in 1971 and the Community Building in 1969 .. . , 10ol One Section Twenty-Five Cents. •i'"-c;i>, Mi'.ri-h 2, 1«94 12 pages J "Jam Fest" planned by Quail Hollow and 12, the fest is expected to attract thousands of blue grass fans. It is being sponsored by Quail Hollow State Park and the Lake Township Chamber of Commerce. Recently, Lingel and State Representative Johnnie Maier met with William Quartel, public information officer for the Ohio Department of Transportation, as an ODOT crew installed "Hartville"signs along Interstate 77 near the Massillon Road exit. Because of the interstate signs, Hartville will now be included in the interstate exit guide, a booklet given away at visitor information booths. The booklet lists all points of interest along Ohio's interstate system. "Johnnie Maier has really been working hard to get these signs up," exclaimed Lingel. "It was first brought up at the Lake Township TAP (Talk About Potential) meeting as we were all talking about the jam fest. We didn't want anyone to have any problem finding Hartville and unless you know where your arc going on the interstate, it would be easy to get lost!" In addition to the blue grass and traditional music groups expected to perform, Lingel says there will be fiddle, duIcimerand"jammin"work- shops as well as craftsmen and food vendors. "We believe this will be a great event for Hartville and for Quail Hollow State Park," Lingel said. "This will be an old time music festival and will be nice entertainment for the whole family. We hope everyone comes!" The free event will be held rain or shine. Quail Hollow State Park is located at 13340 Congress Lake Ave. in Hartville. There is no camp- ingat Quail Hollowandnoalcoholic beverages will be served. Donations will be accepted to cover the costs. For information on attending the fest or on performing, call Sherry Lingel at 699-1181.
