[ARCHIVED] Letter from Chief Mier regarding BLM March

Letter from Chief Mier

July 24, 2020

To Copley Township Residents & Business Owners

A local organization called Copley-Fairlawn-for -All is planning to hold a march in Support of Black Lives Matter this Saturday, July 25th, from 10:00 AM to 2 :00 PM. This group intends to congregate at the Copley Circle and walk on Cleveland-Massillon Road from the circle to the Copley-Fairlawn High School and then return via the same route. Since Cleveland-Massillon Road is a Summit County roadway, the organizers of this event had to obtain a permit from the office of the Summit County Executive, Ilene Shapiro.

Copley Township recognizes that the organizers of this event have a right to express themselves and have taken steps to legally hold this event. However, Copley Township officials also recognize some residents may not support or participate in this event and would like to go about their normal daily routine. Consequently, Copley Township has dedicated significant resources to allow for the peaceful demonstration and for limited use of the roadway by our residents, business owners, and the traveling public. Both uses of the roadway will be permitted and police officers will monitor traffic for the safety of all persons.

Although Cleveland-Massillon Road will remain open to allow access to the many businesses that will be open, motorists might experience slight delays. Please be patient, as our police officers will keep traffic moving to the best of our ability while providing for the safety of all persons.

Thank you for your understanding. Should you experience any issues or have any questions during the event,  please feel free to call our Dispatch Center at 330-666-8866. Our police officers and firefighters will be on duty and have made plans to respond quickly to any calls in Copley Township as we always have.
