MEDINA – The Village Board will take comments during a public hearing on Jan. 9 for making the intersection of West Avenue and West Oak Orchard Street a 4-way stop.

The village currently has a traffic light there. But resident Mat Mosher told the Village Board on Monday that light doesn’t seem to be needed, especially since the school district put in a road linking the campus, keeping some traffic off village streets.

Board members think many in the community may agree with Mosher and set a public hearing for 7 p.m. on Jan. 9.

The board changed one of the intersections nearby from a traffic light to a 4-way stop. The board in October 2020 made Gwinn and West Oak Orchard a 4-way stop, making the traffic light blinking red and adding stop signs.
