Projects Happening around the City


Tree Pruning

The city’s winter tree-trimming project will take place over the next three months on Silsby, Elmdale, Claver, and Milton Roads. Please know the trees are trimmed according to a prescription assigned to each tree by the city arborist. This prescriptive trimming will shape the growth of the tree over the next decade and is an important component of our efforts to keep your tree lawn trees healthy. See if your tree lawn tree is on the pruning list and learn what the tree codes are.

Pedestrian Safety Improvements

Throughout 2015 the Northeast Ohio Coordinating Agency (NOACA) studied Cedar and Warrensville Center Roads, including inviting public input and conducting traffic studies. The results of their study include recommendations for improvements to make the thoroughfares safer and more livable for walkers, bicyclists, motorists, and public transit. Below are links to the full report and a summary of the proposed projects.
