Gates Mills

From the Mayor - July&August '22
Monday, Jul. 18th

Dear Villagers,


The Village is looking great everywhere, and there is a lot going on this Summer.

Our traditional Independence Day parade is on Monday, July 4th at 11:00 a.m. I hope to see everyone there. See the Parade Page in the Pink Sheet for complete details.

I am very pleased and proud to tell you that officer Arch Kimbrew received the School Resource Officer of Ohio Award. Officer Arch and our Chief attended the award ceremony in June. This is a well-deserved award for a great Police Officer.

Thank you to Brownie troop #70592 who honored the Fire and Police Departments with special snack packs. The girls enjoyed a tour of the facilities with Fire Chief Robinson. Our First Responders will be sure to enjoy the snacks.

I hope everyone has seen and walked on the new sidewalk that was installed from the interurban bridge to the Gates Mills Post Office. It was planned as a safety measure to get people and strollers off River Road. It is a wonderful addition and benefit to the Village. This project is funded by taxdeductible donations. Thank you to those who have donated so far. You can donate by mailing a check to the Village of Gates Mills, Attn: Sidewalk Project.

Our Summer Band Concert will be July 24th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. This event is sure to be fun for all ages. Pack a picnic, come dance or just relax and listen to the music in our beautiful Village setting. See more details online or in the Pink Sheet.

I am pleased to announce a new Gates Mills Clock will soon be installed on our Village Green. We are having a dedication party on Sunday, August 28th. We will “Rock Around the Clock” from 2:00-4:00 p.m. and celebrate all the “Time” our great Gates Mills Volunteers have given to the Village. Bring your dancing shoes and plan on joining us for this one “time” celebration!

Lastly and very importantly for the future of Gates Mills, please complete the survey for our Comprehensive Plan. We want and need your input! If you have any problems with the survey, please contact Jean at Town Hall or email Thank you for your support and investment in our Village!
