Rezoning is meeting topic
BATH: Township trustees invite the public to a hearing at 6 p.m. Tuesday to discuss a proposed $20 million senior living facility to be built on 12 acres at 4837 Medina Road.
Last month, the Bath Zoning Commission voted to recommend trustees approve rezoning the property from R-2 (single family residential) to R-4 as requested by Omni Senior Living, which has also received conditional use approval for the project from the Bath Board of Zoning Appeals.
The Summit County Planning Commission has also recommended the rezoning.
Proponents and opponents of the rezoning will be able to talk at the meeting. Trustees will decide the fate of the request.
Following the public hearing, people will have 20 days to make additional comments before trustees vote on the issue.
The public hearing will be held in the trustees’ meeting room in the lower level at 3864 W. Bath Road.

Bullets strike home
COVENTRY TWP.: Authorities are asking for help in determining who fired gunshots into a Swartz Road residence at 9 p.m. Wednesday.
Four gunshots went into the home through a picture window and struck the kitchen area.
There were five adults home at the time, but no one was hurt. The bullets flew past one of the people, Summit County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Bill Holland said.
“Our theory at this point is that the shots were fired from a vehicle,” he said.
Authorities found no shell casings at the scene.
They also were not sure if the house was targeted or it was a random shooting.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff’s detective bureau at 330-926-5616.
