A Message from the Candidate

Avon-Lee Belardo’s experience on Avon City Council has been that of protecting homeowners over unpopular development. This is why voters will choose to re-elect him to City Council on November 3.

Using his skills as an attorney, he has worked hard his first term to improve our city ordinances that deal with storm water, by redefining the requirements builders need to meet before they can construct homes and businesses in Avon.

Also, City Council, with his vote, has stopped residential development in areas prone to flooding while passing ordinances to cover existing open ditches along major city streets such as Jaycox Road. However, implementing these changes takes time. His serving on City Council for a second term will ensure the continued passage of ordinances that address similar issues throughout the City of Avon.

During his first term on City Council he accomplished quite a lot including opening the Aquatic Center, approving the building of both the Avon Cleveland Clinic hospital and the University Hospital’s Rehabilitation Hospital, bringing Bendix Corp. to our city and attracting unique commercial development such as Levin’s Menard’s, Meijer’s and Cabela’s to name a few.

In addition, Council has re-aligned the Chester Road-S.R. 611 intersection and has approved plans to widen Chester road as well, thus making it safer. Our challenges as a city have been to keep our infrastructure development ahead of the pace of this development and the council members on City Council have been and will continue to be successful in meeting these challenges for the comfort and safety of our residents.

Storm water management, streets, and safety are just three important areas he will continue to address in his second term. Remember to cast your vote on November 3, 2015 to re-elect Lee Belardo.

Lee Belardo for member-at-large of the Avon City Council.

In June 2013, petitions were filed the Lorain County Board of Elections nominating Lee Belardo as a candidate for the office of member-at-large of the Avon City Council.
The Avon City Council is comprised of 7 members; one representative from each of the 4 city Wards and 3 members elected by the voters of the entire city. With at least three current council members announcing their intentions to run for Mayor of Avon, Lee Belardo desires to fill the vacancies created by their departure from City Council.
Lee believes, “Listening to developers, businesses, and the citizens of Avon whether just moved into town or here for generations is the best way to find consensus for the good of Avon. The next 30 years can be just as bright as the last. Together, we can move our city forward.”
