Pheasant Run Sanitary Project Update

The Pheasant Run sanitary sewer project is moving along, quickly.  This project is being contracted by the Lorain County Commissioners.  LaGrange Village is expanding our wastewater plant to accept this sewage.  The expansion will be paid for with funds received from Pheasant Run residents through sewer utility payments.

Durham Ridge Housing Development Nearly Complete

Durham Ridge at Grey Hawk Golf Club experienced a boom in construction in 2017.  The development has had slow growth over the last five years but Ryan Homes, low lot costs and low interest rates created this growth.  Approximately 45 homes were built in 2017 with more planned for 2018.  Streets with empty lots are not only eye-sores, but create a maintenance cost with little income for the Village.  The new homes increase the Village’s valuation and brings added income tax to offset that maintenance!  Village Council would like to welcome our new residents and hope you enjoy your “country club” atmosphere in our rural setting!  Overall, 51 new houses, 28 apartment units and nine condominium units were constructed in the Village in 2017! The apartments are at the end of Keywood Street.


West Main St. Cemetery to Become Property of the Village

The LaGrange Cemetery, located on West Main Street, has been the property and has been maintained by LaGrange Township for over 100 years.  Due to a recent discovery in the Ohio Revised Code, the cemetery became the property of the Village on January 1st, 2018.  Under the ORC, townships are not allowed to own cemeteries within the boundaries of a municipality.  This cemetery is full, but all titles to plots and records pertaining to the cemetery will become the property of the Village.  The Village will also be responsible to maintain the cemetery.  If there are any concerns.
