Council Agenda Upcoming News

Posted on December 19, 2022 at 6:06 PM by Brittany Rutkowski



In addition to regular business, the following items will be before City Council for consideration this evening:

2023 Board Appointments

Council is being asked to confirm the re-appointment of Paul Kowalczyk and Ronald Kluchin as Alternate Members of the Architectural Review Board to a three-year term ending December 31, 2025.

The purpose of the Architectural Review Board  is to preserve and protect the public health, safety and welfare by maintaining the high character of community development and protecting the real estate and its value in the City from impairment or reduction of value by regulating, according to architectural principles, the design, use of materials, finished grade lines and orientation of all new buildings, and by assuring that the appearance and aesthetics of building exteriors reasonably conform to City standards found in the area of the proposed building or addition to an existing building.

Community Services/Recreation Department

The Administration has recommended an upgrade to the Audio-Visual equipment located in the City of Beachwood Community Center.   This upgrade will help improve existing and future programming offered by the Community Services/Recreation Department.

Three Bids were received and we are recommending Summit Sound & Security Ltd. in a total amount not to exceed $69,092.96.

City Council

City Council is asked to approve the proposed Regular Council Meeting dates for 2023.  Some of the dates have changed from our normal meeting schedule of the first and third Monday’s of the month to accommodate various holidays throughout the year. The first changes will occur in January of 2023.     

Planning and Zoning Commission

The Planning and Zoning Commission has recommended City Council accept the Preliminary and Final Site Plan that has been proposed for additions at the Mandel Jewish Day School. As part of this approval, Council is being asked to grant a variance of 3% of maximum building ground coverage to permit the changes in building ground coverage to be 28% in lieu of the maximum 25%.

You are invited to attend our Council meeting tonight starting a 7 PM.  Our meetings are held at the Beachwood Municipal Center, 25325 Fairmount Boulevard in Council Chambers.  If you cannot attend, our meetings are live streamed and can be viewed at or watched at a later date.
