                                                       Milan Safe Routes to Schools Improvements


Project Location:  Location 1 – Church Street at Park Street Crosswalk.  Location 2 – Main Street (SR601) at Church Street (SR113) at Traffic Signal.  Location 3 – Main Street at Edison School Crosswalk.  Location 4 – South Main Street from Oak Street to Old State Road.  


Proposed Improvements: The Village of Milan proposes to construct various pedestrian improvements as part of the Safe Routes to Schools program.

The improvements include: Pavement marking and traffic control sign upgrades will be installed on Church Street at Park Street.  The Main Street at Church Street traffic signal installation will be upgraded with installation of pedestrian traffic signal heads.  Pavement marking and a Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacon will be installed on Main Street the Edison School.  Approximately 4,000 feet of sidewalk and curb ramps will be installed along the west side of Main Street from Oak Street to Old State Road.  The improvements are planned inside the existing right of way.  Tree removal and tree trimming inside the existing right of way will be needed for the proposed improvements.  Personal property items inside the existing right of way may need to be relocated.

ARBOR DAY FOUNDATION NAMES MILAN TREE CITY USA FOR THE 16TH CONSECUTIVE YEAR
















On Friday April 26, 2019 the Village of Milan held an Arbor Day Tree Planting Celebration. Mayor Richard A. Maloney was assisted by two Milan Tree Commission Members (left to right) Carol Draeger and Martha Berckmueller in planting a Signature Ivory Silk Lilac on South Main Street. Mayor Maloney read an Arbor Day Proclamation at a recent Council Meeting held on Wednesday April 24, 2019.


Milan, OH, was named a 2018 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management.


Milan achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program's four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation. 


"Tree City USA communities see the impact an urban forest has in a community first hand," said Dan Lambe, president of the Arbor Day Foundation. "Additionally, recognition brings residents together and creates a sense of community pride, whether it's through volunteer engagement or public education."


Trees provide multiple benefits to a community when properly planted and maintained. They help to improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.


More information on the program is available at arborday.org/TreeCityUSA.


About the Arbor Day Foundation: The Arbor Day Foundation is a million member nonprofit conservation and education organization with the mission to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. More information is available at arborday.org.

SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOL INFRASTRUCTURE GRANT AWARDED

The Village of Milan recently learned that they were awarded the Safe Routes to School Infrastructure Grant funding from the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT). ODOT will provide up to a maximum of $400,000.00 to install Sidewalk on the west side of Main Street, install Pedestrian Signals at Main Street and Church Street and improve the Crosswalk at Church Street and Park Street on the Square. The Safe Routes to School Grant is designed to improve biking and walking safety to school. In a statement from ODOT to the Village it was stated “Projects were ranked based on many factors including: proximity to a bicycle or pedestrian crash, traffic speed, percentage of K-8 students expected to benefit, and the community’s commitment to Safe Routes to School. Once ranked, final selections were determined by a committee comprised of ODOT staff, along with representatives from education, health, and advocacy.”

The Village would like to thank the following Safe Routes to School Committee members for their hard work and determination in making this project happen, Carrie Whitaker of Erie County Regional Planning, Tom Roth and Dave Hermes of Edison Local Schools, Randy Glovinsky and Chris Gilliam Village of Milan Council, Robert England of Erie County Health Department, Chad Stang of Huron County Soil and Water, Chief Bob Meister Village of Milan Police Department, Brian Rospert Village of Milan Administrator and Tina Ackerman Village of Milan Resident. Construction funds for the project are available during State Fiscal Year 2021.
