How lucky I am
to have something that
makes saying goodbye
so hard.

The township minutes are posted on our website at and outside the fiscal office at the Boston Township Hall. Trustee meetings are the second and fourth Wednesday of the month. Zoning commission meets the second Tuesday of the month and the Board of Zoning Appeals meets the fourth Wednesday of the month.

Condolences: The trustees express condolences to the family of former Peninsula Village council-member Mary Booth who passed away June 2, 2019. Mary served on Peninsula Village Council for many years, resigning at the April council meeting. We extend our deepest sympathies to her immediate and extended family and to her many friends.

Road Department: The village and the township road departments continue to collaborate on road projects. Peninsula`s road department personnel has been working out of the Boston Township road garage since January. After reviewing their needs and goals, Peninsula Village`s solicitor submitted a "scope of services" to the township trustees who reviewed it for the first time at the meeting on June 12. The scope of services is based on the Village eliminating its Service Department and contracting with the township for all tasks currently being conducted by the village. Talks will continue on this issue to see if an agreement can be reached that is mutually beneficial to both communities.

Zoning Updates: The Zoning Commission continues to work with Mark Majewski of NorthStar Planning regarding text amendments to the Business Corridor. The most recent draft was reviewed by the Summit County Planning Commission at a hearing scheduled for May 30. The Summit County Planning Commission made some recommendations for the Zoning Commission to consider. After that review, hearings can be scheduled for both the Zoning Commission and the Boston Township Trustees to review the revisions and receive public comment. At the meeting held May 29, Zoning Commission member Don Beal was reappointed to a five-year term expiring September 4, 2024.

Memorial Day: Our thanks to all who participated in the Memorial Day Parade. Special thanks to Jerry Ritch for planning and acting as master of ceremonies, Walter Beavin and Father John Terzano for blessings and prayers, Nick Janigan for the use of the Boston Community Church property and his mom, Jessica Nagy, for cooking the hot dogs and providing tons of homemade baked goods, Northampton United Methodist Church for providing the hot dogs, the absolutely wonderful Woodridge High School Band, Debora Roznovsky, and to the cemetery workers: Dave Krusinski, Rick Butler, Cal Krusinski, and Kyle Schneider.
