Ballot issues approved

Voters approved Issue 25 at the polls Nov. 8, which means that plans for a fine-dining restaurant/party center at the northeast corner of Miller and South Edgerton roads are able to move forward.

According to unofficial results posted by the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, the ballot issue, which changed the zoning from local business to a planned development overlay district, was approved by a vote of 4,772 (69.7%) to 2,074 (30.3%). A 55% majority vote was required for passage in accordance with the city’s charter.

The restaurant and party center, proposed by the owner of the Brew Garden, Pat Potopsky, is expected include an indoor bar, outdoor patio bar and gathering spaces both inside and out. Voters also approved Issue 24 to rezone the former Highland Elementary School property into an R-20 residential district with minimum 20,000-square-foot lots. The vote passed 4,068 (60.8%) to 2,620 (39.2%) and will allow residential homes to be built on the property.
