The Trustees of Protect Geauga Parks endorse the passage of Issue 4 – Russell Citizens Park District .25 mill levy for the November election.
This Park District, also referred to as the 511 Park District, was formed in 2017 to ensure citizen control of its park lands. This park district is run by Russell residents who are appointed by the elected Trustees of Russell Township. Passage of this levy will establish and begin funding for this park district, allow the district to accept donations of land, money and services and allow the district to accept transfers of property from other governmental bodies to its parks.
