Alert: Prospect at Railroad Tracks to Be Closed Starting on 10/21

Ward 3 Residents —

I have good news and bad news.

Bad news first:

Starting Oct. 21, Prospect (at Westwood) will be closed for 3-5 days. Detours will be posted. (Point of clarification: Westwood will remain open.)

The good news:

CSX will be repairing the pavement at the railroad tracks (Prospect & Westwood), which is sorely needed. This responds to many residents concerns about this portion of road. I’m glad that CSX has responded to our requests, even if the timing isn’t ideal for traffic. Thank you for your patience.

Ward 3 Resident Meeting on October 29

Ward 3 residents are invited to attend the Ward 3 Resident Meeting on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 at the Strongsville Senior Center.  The meeting will start at 7 pm.  We’ll discuss what’s going on in Strongsville and I will be available to answer residents’ questions.  I look forward to seeing you there!

Strongsville Leads the Way on Prohibiting the Sale of Vaping Equipment to Children.

On April 22, 2019, Strongsville Council listened when Ward 2 Councilwoman Ann Roff and I said that we needed to act to protect our kids from the dangers associated with vaping. Yesterday, Ohio’s Governor spoke about the dangers of vaping, particularly as to our children.  He is supporting efforts to limit access to vaping.

I am proud that we recognized this early in Strongsville and applaud the state’s efforts to address this on a state-wide level.

New Restaurants Coming to the North End of Pearl Road.

Update regarding re-development efforts on the North end of Pearl Road:

Did you know that Starbucks and Burger King are planning to build in Ward 3? They intend to build restaurants where La Siesta is currently located. This is in addition to Culver’s, which has broken ground at Jennifer’s former location, and Arby’s, which has been granted variances to build at the old Mad Cactus location.

La Siesta

These businesses will offer some additional options and convenience to north-end residents and will help bring some new economic activity to the north end.

Councilwoman Kosek Instrumental in Identifying Need for ADA-Compliant Playground

As your Ward 3 Councilwoman, I am dedicated to building a better community for you and your family. In 2017, I identified the need for an ADA-compliant playground, which we opened in 2018. Surrarrer Park is a great place for kids of all abilities to be active. I’m excited about the new equipment, including ziplines, that were added this year.

If you want a council representative who puts residents first, remember to Keep Kelly as your Ward 3 Councilwoman this fall!

SWL Candidate’s Night 2019 (Video)

On September 9, 2019, the Strongsville Women’s League hosted a Candidate’s Night with all the council candidates and candidates for school board.  If you’d like to see the candidates for yourself, please check out the posted video.

kelly-color.jpgIn the video, I hope you will recognize my passion and commitment to Strongsville’s Ward 3.  I use  my problem-solving skills to help residents.  As a lawyer, I have a strong understanding of the issues that are facing the city and the Ward.  But I am also a mother.  I understand what is at stake if we don’t start making changes to the way that our city is developed.  I am a proponent of green space and I am opposed to urban sprawl.  If the residents of Ward 3 choose to “Keep Kelly” in 2019, I will continue to utilize my problem-solving skills as a lawyer and heart of a mom to be the representative that Ward 3 deserves.
