CLEAN UP

We appreciate the consideration and diligence of our wonderful Village residents as Summer Clean-up begins. To help steer everyone in the right direction, we offer the following reminders from our Codified Ordinances:

Are you having a garage sale or graduation party? Selling your home or advertising an  event? Temporary signs include real estate, political, garage sale, party or special event, agricultural, and similar signs. These signs must be placed out of the road right-of-way (behind the utility pole line) and may not be placed on any utility pole or tree. Please make sure to obtain the landowner’s permission if you are not posting a sign on your own property. This applies to both developed and undeveloped property. Signs found to be in violation will be removed by the Village.

All parcels of land which have a dwelling house and all lots in a recorded subdivision must be maintained so that weeds, grass, brush, vines, briars, and the like are kept below ten inches (10”) high.  Any growth over ten inches (10”) violates the Village’s weed and grass regulations.

The Village also has an established uniform maintenance standard applicable to residential buildings and property under the Residential Exterior Maintenance code. By way of this code, the Village seeks to maintain property values for Village property owners, prevent the deterioration of residential property to the point of health, safety and building code violations, encourage the continued common beauty of all property in our community.  Please keep every residential building and structure in good condition and repair.

Please keep properties free of excessive vegetation and litter. Litter includes but is not limited to junk, rubbish, garbage, parts of automobiles, tires and anything else of an unsightly or unsanitary nature. It is not permissible for properties to have the appearance of a junk yard or automotive graveyard, nor to have accumulated piles or scatterings of unused or discarded materials and/or debris. These types of things are considered prohibited uses in violation of Lordstown Codified Ordinances.

Road Department

There is a Tire Drop-Off for residents starting June 10, 2024 until June 17, 2024 with an eight tire limit per household. The location for the drop off will be behind the Road department, to the left of the salt dome. A sign will be posted for the precise spot for the tires.

If any residents would like any loads of fill dirt (Up To Five Dump Truck Loads Per Year), you are encouraged to call our Street Supervisor at 330-824-2585.

Please note that this dirt is NOT TOP SOIL, nor is there any.

Village Cemetery Grounds

We respectfully request that anyone who wishes to leave sentimental items, flowers in a vase, etc. for a family member or friend who has passed, to please leave them on the cemetery plot stone or base of the stone so that road crews can easily mow around each stone in the cemetery. The Village will not be responsible for items left that are moved or become damaged as a result of mowing during the season. Thank you for your kindness and respect.

Village Parks

BE CONSIDERATE WHEN WALKING YOUR DOG

No Dogs are permitted on the tennis courts or baseball fields.

You must clean up after your dog when in the Village Park.  Children who play on the playground or who play soccer, baseball and softball at the Village Park, do not deserve to play in an area scattered with dog waste.  Please be considerate of others.

Any person not cleaning up after their animal would be guilty of Section 949.12 of our Village Codified Ordinances.
