Lorain/Amherst Western Gateway Improvements
The Cities of Amherst and Lorain are completing a planning study of the North Lake Street / Oak Point Road corridor from the S.R. 2 interchange to the Buck Horn Boulevard/Park Square Drive intersection, known as the Lorain/Amherst Western Gateway Improvements. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the existing traffic conditions and develop recommendations for potential congestion relief and safety improvements that can increase the efficiency of the corridor. A public involvement meeting was conducted for this study to provide the general public, residents, business and property owners, and public officials an opportunity to view exhibits and to provide comments on potential improvement alternatives.
The public meeting was held on Tuesday, November 9, 2021 in the cafeteria of Amherst Junior High School, in Amherst, Ohio. Below are the documents and exhibits presented at the meeting.

Paper & Cardboard
Flattened cardboard, newspaper, magazines, office paper and common mail can be recycled as long as they aren’t contaminated by food, liquid or waste. Hardcover books and shredded paper should never be placed in your recycling container. Break down cardboard boxes. Paper can’t be recycled if it’s mixed with other materials. Remove the bubble wrap or plastic windows before recycling padded packaging or security envelopes.
Before recycling food and drink cans, remove paper or plastic labels and clean out any residual materials. Some metal cans have an insulated coating that might not be recyclable. When in doubt, throw it out! Recyclables don’t need to be thoroughly washed, but they do need to be dry so they don’t contaminate other items.
Hard plastic containers like water bottles, milk jugs and detergent containers can go in your container. Flexible plastics like grocery bags, bubble wrap and styrofoam require special handling and can’t be recycled curbside. Lids are too small to recycle by themselves so put them on the containers or throw them away. If you can poke your finger through the plastic, it doesn’t belong in your recycling container.
