State of the Village of Marblehead

By Jackie Bird
Mayor, Village of Marblehead

January 2015 marks the 124th Anniversary of the incorporation of the Village of Marblehead. From 1891 to present day, our village remains a prominent commonwealth for both residents and visitors.

As Mayor, I reflect back to when I first became a council member in 1997. At that time, as is now, I have always considered myself fortunate to have followed in the footsteps of the previous dedicated administrations that helped form our community. Their leadership, dedication and set standards have produced a strong municipality that will sustain future generations. Every elected official that has served, or is currently serving, has done so with the best interest of the Village of Marblehead in mind. As I look at our current administration and employees, I am proud to say that this great legacy continues. Our team is strong and our goal is common; the goal to sustain our fine village to its fullest potential with keeping future generations in mind.

The Village Square

By Robert Hruska
Marblehead Zoning Administrator

Happy New Year everybody!  I hope you had a great Christmas.

Instead of talking about zoning stuff today, there is a much more exciting thing to discuss.  The Village of Marblehead is currently working with The Western Reserve Land Conservancy to help us acquire the Lifeboat Station property and turn it into a public lakefront park for the Village.  That is the development over near the cemetery, owned by Blue Isle intended to be used for a single-family subdivision.  The Village owns no lakefront property right now and this would be the perfect place for a park.  As a park, it would provide public access to the lake.  It is about 2 acres that we could use for a nice place to relax with a view of the lake.  Sometimes we do not stop and think how nice it is to drive by that area and see the lake.  That is, until it is gone!  This parcel is the only open space still available on the water in Marblehead.
