Mayor Thomas P. Perciak and Strongsville City Council announced today the launch of the Strongsville Town Center Enhancement and Walkability Initiative
, including a new Initiative website (www.strongsville.org/towncenter
) featuring a public survey intended to gather additional input from Strongsville residents.
The Strongsville Town Center (see map
) includes various community amenities that are utilized by tens of thousands of residents and visitors annually, including the Strongsville Recreation & Senior Center, the Strongsville Commons, Castletown Playground, the Strongsville Library, and more. The continued enhancement of this area further improves the quality of life for City residents while also providing additional amenities for area business men and women.
Potential enhancements through the Initiative may include, but are not limited to, the:
- Refurbishing of Castletown Playground
- Further integration of area walkways & the Freedom Trail to promote walkability/connectivity to area amenities
- Implementation of new wayfinding signage to direct residents and visitors to area amenities
- Additional quality of life amenities for the betterment of Strongsville residents
To help guide the continued redevelopment of the Strongsville Town Center, the City of Strongsville has extensively studied the area, implementing third party, expert recommendations. Studies of the Strongsville Town Center include:

will incorporate data from the above reports with public input through the residents’ survey (www.strongsville.org/towncenter

To help fund area improvements, Mayor Thomas P. Perciak has instructed his administration to utilize and/or apply for grant assistance through programs available from the Federal Government, State of Ohio, Cuyahoga County, and regional non-profits, with such funds being designated for community projects and restricted from City administrative/operations use.
