THE GATEWAY TO CUYAHOGA VALLEY NATIONAL PARK
Let's Stop In The Valley
The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad runs from Akron to Independence, making different stops along the way. After steadfast efforts by community leaders, city officials and elected representatives, purchase of the vacant land for the future train depot has recently been approved! Reviving Merriman Valley with this train depot will create increased foot traffic, attract new and retain existing businesses, create jobs, generate tax dollars, increase property values, and enhance the overall vitality of the district.
Thank you to all who signed the petition!
