How Are Mansfield And Other Ohio Legacy Cities Doing?

15 Oct , 2016  

It’s an intriguing question with what might be a surprising answer – or answers. How does Mansfield compare to cities of comparable size, and larger, in the arena of early 21st century community development?

This summer, Greater Ohio, the state’s self-styled champion for policies and practices that value urban cores and metropolitan regions as economic drivers, while at the same time preserving Ohio’s open space and farmland, issued a 28 page report entitled, “From Akron to Zanesville: How Are Ohio’s Small and Mid-Sized Cities Faring?” In particular, the study looked at what are referred to as “legacy cities,” that is, cities with an industrial past, which have lost population over the last several decades, and is not a college town or near-metro suburb (this would include all Ohio metropolitan areas with the exception of Columbus).

ODNR Issues Outdoor Burning Reminder

14 Oct , 2016  

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) urges Ohioans to be aware of the state’s outdoor burning regulations and take necessary precautions if they are planning to burn debris this fall.

Ohio law states outdoor debris burning is prohibited from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. during October and November. Burning is limited in the fall due to the abundance of dry fuel on the ground in the form of grasses, weeds, fallen leaves, crops and crop debris. Winds can make a seemingly safe fire burn more intensely and escape control.

“With fall’s windy and dry weather, trash and debris fires can quickly become unmanageable,” said Robert Boyles, Ohio’s state forester. “Burning leaves and tree debris under these conditions also increases the risk for wildfires. All it takes is a little wind to cause a debris fire to escape control and spread.” More…
