Observe sign laws

The Village of Chagrin Falls administrator is reminding residents and property owners there are rules for the maintenance and display of lawn signs during the current election season.

These are classified as temporary signs and can total 12 square feet per single property.

Signs are to be placed 5 feet from the public right-of-way, which generally extends 10-15 feet from the edge of the street depending on width of the tree lawn. 

Those signs placed within the right-of-way or on public property will be removed by the village. Residents are asked to remove election signs before they become deteriorated, dirty, damaged or faded.  

The rules have been reviewed and approved by the village law director.

Trimming to begin

Tree trimming in Chagrin Falls residential neighborhoods will begin soon.

Colored ribbons will be placed on trees that need attention. Red or orange ribbons indicate trees to be pruned. Green ribbons with white dots are trees which will be removed.

Discarded limbs will be left on tree lawns and will be collected promptly, according to the announcement from the village administrator.
