Survey underway

Survey underway


The Mosquito Lake Greenway Project is conducting a survey to assess people’s attitude toward the project and a sense of community among the people of the Cortland, Bazetta Township and Mecca Township areas.

The Mosquito Lake Greenway Project proposes to encircle the southern part of Mosquito Lake with a greenway to be used by pedestrians and bicyclists. Plans include connecting to the Western Reserve Greenway a few miles to the west.

“It is our intent to use the results of this survey as a baseline. When we re-survey, we’ll have data on the positive effects our work has had on building community. That data also will help position our project for funding,” said Michael Swiatkwich, founder and chairman of the Mosquito Lake Greenway Project.

Fire prevention


In recognition of National Fire Prevention Week, the Warren Fire Department has planned various events to educate and inform residents on services provided by the fire department. The 2013 theme is to prevent kitchen fires.

Firefighters will be in schools educating third-grade classes on fire safety. This will include an experience in a fire-safety trailer that will teach students what to do when faced with a fire emergency.

An open house will be at the central fire station, 111 South St., from 1 to 4 p.m. next Sunday. People will have the opportunity to meet local firefighters as well as view facilities and equipment. Demonstrations will include a staged auto accident using the “jaws of life,” rescue rappelling, how to properly use a fire extinguisher and the opportunity for children to spray water from a firehose.

For information, contact Lt. Paul Lamosek at 330-841-2542.

Public meeting


A public information and comment meeting will be at 9 a.m. Oct. 21 at the Springfield Township Municipal Building, 406 Old Ash Road, concerning PennDOT’s plans to rehabilitate the Milburn Road (Route 2004) bridge over Mill Run in Springfield Township. The bridge is about a quarter mile east of U.S. Route 19 near Smith Road.
