Mosquito Spraying for West Nile Virus

Summit County Public Health (SCPH) set a mosquito trap at Forest Brooke Road on July 12, 2017.  Mosquitoes in this trap tested positive for the West Nile Virus (WNV). It is not uncommon for mosquito traps to test positive for the virus.

Because this trap was positive for the virus, SCPH will be spraying a one mile radius around this trap site on August 3, 2017. Click on the following links for maps of the scheduled spraying in Northwest Richfield and North Richfield.

Spraying will begin at approximately 9:00 p.m. and continue until completed. In the event of bad weather, the spray schedule may be modified. An updated schedule will be available the following day by calling 330-926-5667. The spray schedule can also be viewed on the SCPH website at http://www.scphoh.org.

Most people who become infected with WNV do not have any symptoms. About one in five people who become infected develop a fever with other symptoms such as headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea, or rash. Less than 1 percent of infected people develop a serious neurologic illness, such as encephalitis or meningitis (inflammation of the brain or surrounding tissues).

Interstate 271 Construction


  • Beginning Friday, August 11, at noon the ramp from I-271 northbound to I-77 northbound will be closed through Saturday evening, August 12, at 8 p.m., for resurfacing. The detour will be Brecksville Rd. to Wheatley Rd. This work is weather dependent.

  • ODOT will be closing several roads in Richfield Township. All the bridges being closed are over I-271. The tentative schedule is as follows:

August 14 - Everett Road for three days
August 17 - Southern Road for three days
August 21 - Medina Line Road for four days

  • I-271 from just north of the Medina County line to the Ohio Turnpike has various daily lane restrictions for resurfacing. This work is part of a $46.4 million project to reconstruct the pavement along I-271 from Broadview Road to the Ohio Turnpike. Then entire project is scheduled to be completed by late September 2017.


ZONING INFORMATION....................

Zoning Board Positions

Appointment to a township board provides an opportunity for residents to serve in a leadership position while providing valued professional service to the community. The zoning boards are each composed of five full members and two alternate members who reside in the township. Members are appointed by the Board of Trustees and meet as applications require or at the call of the chairperson, generally one evening per month. Full members serve rotating five-year terms; alternate members serve one-year terms and there are no term limits.

The Board of Zoning Appeals acts in a quasi-judicial capacity, rendering decisions on zoning variance and conditional use requests and appeals of the zoning inspector’s determinations. The Board holds regular meetings on the third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Positions for one full member and one alternate member are open.
