Lake County Utilities provides advice on what can and cannot be recycled in curbside bins.  Check out the 6 minute video at https://concordtwp.viebit.com


The Concord Fire Prevention Bureau is pleased to announce that the aluminum can collection bin is again operational behind Station #1! You can access it by entering the town hall parking lot in left field of the baseball field. There will be a sign posted soon. The money collected from this project goes back into the community to support costs associated with fire education primarily in the schools! Please do not throw trash in the bins at either station. Concord Fire would like to especially thank Lt. Mike Homovec for his fabrication skills. He did a great job as usual! Thank you all for your patience and spread the word!


Road Construction Alert

Please share this notice with all household drivers, visitors, lawn maintenance companies and any other services that might be taking place during construction activities.

In the coming week, Karvo Paving and Specialized Construction Companies will begin the repaving project on Little Mountain Country Club Subdivision, Hobby Horse development, Lambton Court and Tanglewood Trail. Work is expected to last at least two weeks in order to complete all of the steps necessary, weather dependent. Residents will encounter temporary delays and are urged to use caution and allow extra time while traveling in active work zones. The steps that take place will be as follows: They will mill off the surface of the existing road approximately one and one-half inches. If any conditions result that need further repair it will take place at this time. The road will then be swept followed by the surface sprayed with tar, covered with stone and compacted to complete an inner layer for the new surface. Do not drive on freshly poured tar!  Be alert to personnel coordinating traffic before proceeding within these areas. They may spray additional emulsion on the stone surface prior to pouring the asphalt surface. Again caution must be exhibited on freshly laid asphalt as it is very hot. Do not drive, walk or allow pets on this surface unless otherwise allowed to proceed by the flagging and or ground personnel present on the jobsite.   Contact the service department office for any additional information

Garage sale season is here! A reminder about signs

The Zoning Office frequently receives calls about garage sale signs, and garage sales in general. Here is some basic information about what is permitted in the Concord Township Zoning Resolution:

·         Each residential unit holding a garage sale is permitted 1 temporary sign advertising the sale.  This sign must be located on the property holding the sale.

·         One additional off-site directional sign is permitted with the permission of the off-site property owner or authorized representative.

·         Such signs are only permitted for a period of 72 hours, and no more than 3 times in any 12 month period.

·         These signs shall be located no closer than 10 feet from a public road.  Placing signs on utility poles, on STOP signs or any other way within the public right-of-way is not permitted. 

·         The Zoning Office does have the authority to pull any signs that violate the Concord Township Zoning Resolution.

·         Also, a reminder to please refrain from parking on the fire hydrant side of the road.


A zoning permit is not needed for this kind of sign. Please feel free to contact the Zoning Office at 440-354-7505, or 440-354-7506 if you have any questions.
