Eagle Scout project will improve Phillips Park in Franklin Township

Franklin Township trustees met Tuesday to welcome Jack Amolsch, a Shaker Heights Boy Scout who has targeted Franklin Township for his Eagle Scout project.

Designing and implementing a community-minded project is a requirement for becoming an Eagle Scout, which is a lifetime designation.

Amolsch’s plan is to install an ADA-compliant pathway that will connect an existing pathway to a pavilion at Phillips Park on Ravenna Road. The path will be 45 feet long and three feet wide.

Franklin Township will donate asphalt grindings for the path, and Amolsch’s scout troop will provide all of the labor, said Lise Russell, Franklin Township Fiscal Officer.

If Amolsch notifies township trustees in time, they will provide food and drinks to the scouts during the installation process.

The project is slated to begin in mid-May and should be completed before Memorial Day.
