Save Detroit Road

If you don't live on Detroit Road, why should you care if Detroit becomes more than 3 lanes?

First of all, 5 lanes on Detroit will not move traffic any faster than it moves now. More lanes of pavement just draw more cars.

Property values on Detroit would plummet. Who wants to live next to the air pollution from more cars? Don't count on someone buying a house at a reaonable price. Only the developers will be available to pay desperation prices for the homes they have ruined.

More than half of Avon's century homes are on Detroit. A beautiful Detroit Road enhances property values throughout Avon. When this is gone, it cannot be replaced.

-------------

Save Detroit Road

One 2017 charter amendment that has garnered some attention among business owners in the French Creek District is removing language from the charter that prevents widening of Detroit Road to more than 3 lanes.

The language was placed in the charter in 2003 during a previous charter review process. This year's commission questioned the need for such language "because Detroit Road is a state route and there would be legal wrangling if the state ever opted to widen it."

There would be no legal wrangling because the State can do whatever it pleases. The purpose of the 3-lane limit on Detroit Rd. was to prevent the Avon Council and the Avon Planning Commissiion from widening Detroit with emergency legislation so that people don't find out what is happening until they see bulldozers in their front yards.

-------------

Save Detroit Road

More than 3 lanes on Detroit aren't necessary if we follow the Avon Master Plan.

Developments had to follow the Master Plan to include the right-of-way for moving cars across Avon.

Don't try to put new lanes of pavement at taxpayer expense on Detroit Road. Save tax dollars and Save Detroit Road.

As the saying goes: it is not wise to put all your eggs in one basket; similarly it is not good planning to rely on a single road for all your traffic. Just imagine an accident, a house fire or other obstruction that would stop vehicular traffic in an entire quadrant of the City if Detroit Road is the only option.

With exponential growth in the City, protecting a bit of history and character is a good thing; vote NO on Issue 12.

-------------

Please vote NO on Issue 12 on 11-7-17.

To the Editor

In AVON vote NO on 12. Avon has many great characteristics; one of them is the historic and scenic Detroit Road. In planning for the city's future, a provision was included in Avon's Charter to protect this charming asset from being turned into a multi lane road - Article XIII, Section 9 titled Detroit Road Preservation.

Issue 12 intends to do away with that provision! Passage of issue 12 will compromise the Home Rule ability of Avon to defend and guide its growth and make it easier for public or private entities to pressure our elected officials into allowing widening of the road into an arterial type street - read more than 3 lanes. You can imagine rezoning will follow!

One may ask: how about the traffic? The answer: look to the Master Plan which calls for implementation of alternate east - west roads. Example: Schwartz Road and its extensions which were already built to collector road standards.

As the saying goes: it is not wise to put all your eggs in one basket; similarly it is not good planning to rely on a single road for all your traffic.

Excerpt from the Minutes of the Meeting of the Landmarks Preservation Commission Held in the Community Room of the City of Avon Police Station On Wednesday, December 13, 2017 ...

Mr. Smith thanked everyone for helping to defeat Issue 12 in November; Detroit Road is preserved again. The Detroit Road preservation language is still in the Charter; and we want to keep it there.

He realizes though, that although we kept it in there, the "removers" will be back, so we just have to be vigilant and stand up for what we believe in. The minute we do not, the century homes are gone. The integrity of Detroit Road is gone.

So he just wanted to thank everyone for whatever role they played in the election. 63.79% voted NO; and that is a pretty strong message that citizens want to keep the century homes preserved on Detroit Road.

Ms. Pitasky stated that she thought the issue is two-fold: people want to preserve the beautification on Detroit Road, but they have concerns about the traffic on Detroit Road. So she felt that people felt very conflicted. They wanted traffic flow to be better but they did not want to disrupt the beauty and the feeling on Detroit Road, so they felt very torn on how to vote.

Mr. Smith stated that what people do not understand is that Detroit Road, at certain times of the day, given the current road configuration, is going to be backed up with traffic, whether it is three lanes currently backed up or five lanes put in and backed up.

With the five lanes you would be sitting there in a traffic jam looking at nothing but commercial development. At least with three lanes, you get to admire the the trees, the planters, and the century homes. Now obviously on the far east and west ends of Avon, it is two lanes; and he is all for putting turning lanes in, at developer expense.

If you go to Lorain Road you sit in five lanes of a traffic jam and look at commercial. There were century homes there at one time; now they are gone. And that is what is happening with Center Ridge Road in N. Ridgeville, and that is what would happen here.
