A Letter to Fairlawn Residents from Ernie Staten, Fairlawn’s Deputy Service Director
The City of Fairlawn Service Department crews are progressing in the restoration of the landscaping in neighborhoods where FairlawnGig® construction has been completed. The main line (conduit) construction is finished; some streets are still having fiber pulled and the main fiber boxes installed. We expect the remaining streets to be complete in the next few weeks.
While our fiber construction crews do their best to disturb as little as possible while doing their work, we understand residents’ concern that the landscaping is not yet back to its original, pristine appearance. We are replanting flowers, restoring the grass, and repairing the concrete and asphalt. The fiber boxes and their hand holes are now being straightened and leveled.
How Fairlawn’s Residents Can Help
When our restoration crews have restored the landscaping on your street, we would appreciate a helping hand from residents. Watering the new flowers and grass in the right-of-way in front of your house will allow them to flourish and return to their original appearance even sooner. Especially if we hit a dry patch this summer!
The restoration process is continuing in the order where construction began: the first neighborhood where construction started will have the restoration done first. Restoration of all the neighborhoods will continue to be done in that order throughout the city.
