The City of Sylvania has received mostly positive comments about closing Maplewood Avenue between Main Street and Richard Becker Place to provide more area for safe outside public gathering in downtown, but is continuing to monitor the usage, inquiries and complaints. Parklets have been installed by the Downtown Sylvania Association (DSA) midblock on Main Street to provide more safe seating areas. The Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA) remains reopened, with longer hours as permitted by the State of Ohio. 

The Farmers Markets are being held this year on Tuesdays, 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. (3:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m. for at-risk customers) in the parking lot of the First United Methodist Church at 7000 Erie Street through October 13th. Great vendors and turnouts so far!
