The Russell Township Park District (1545) voted unanimously tonight to lease some (not all) of their property to Geauga Park District for 15 years, with 2 automatic 5 year renewals. Both park districts must agree to terminate the lease for the automatic renewals not to take place. So, it’s a 25 year lease unless both parks agree to end it at 15 years or at 20 years.
The lease applies to Russell Uplands, Modroo, Westwood School Land Lab and a property on Sperry Road. The affected properties are listed in an attachment to the lease. I don’t have the full lease to share here. It will be posted on the Russell Township Park District (1545) website within the next few days.
