Five Year Paving Plan

The Service Department and City Administration closely monitor and evaluate all roads within the City of Kirtland. Adjustments to the repair list are prioritized by current conditions and are continuously updated.

We thank you for your patience. The rewards of construction today are safer roads, better traffic flow and sustainable infrastructure tomorrow.

Road Department Update

The City of Kirtland Service Department road crews have been very busy since spring. The Sperry Road project consisting of 1.7 miles has been completed and crews are currently working in Kirtland Lakes Estates. Progress in this area is slow due to the condition of the sub-base of the roadway causing 70% of the roadway, about 1.2 miles, to be reconstructed. This unforeseen event has slowed planned road projects this season. Service Director, Carm Catania, anticipates the Kirtland Lakes Estates project to be completed by the end of August. Road crews are also currently working on Ledgewood Drive and Rockwood Drive and they will continue road repairs throughout the city for the remainder of the season. The season ends when asphalt companies close in the fall and winter weather approaches.

Road projects take time and can cause temporary inconveniences and some frustration for residents. Progress may seem slow but base repairs must be completed before any repaving. Our crews are diligently working to ensure the roads are done right. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make these much-needed repairs and be assured all roads are being evaluated as improvement plans for the 5 year project continue.

Senior Meal Program Cancellation:

Regrettably, the participation in the congregate and home delivered meals programs at the Kirtland nutrition site has declined over the past several years. Therefore after long consideration the Council on Aging has decided that the Kirtland site will close at the end of July 2015. The congregate program will cease offering meals on Friday, July 31, 2015. Home delivered meals will be reallocated between the Wickliffe and Mentor nutrition sites. All clients and volunteers will be notified.
