The National Wildlife Federation has certified Medina County as a “Community Wildlife Habitat.”

Wildlife Federation regional manager Manja Holland says the Community Wildlife program requires applicants to either create or restore a wildlife habitat and offer educational programs and outreach. Habitats are often found at schools, churches, and public parks. Points are awarded for each area certified as a habitat. Medina County earned the certificate by accumulating 1,000 points.

Medina County Commissioners are to vote Tuesday on a proposal that could lead to signs for the county’s network of bike paths.

The commissioners will decide whether to adopt the county engineer’s new map of the bike paths. Once it’s official, County Commissioner Tim Smith says they can apply to the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency for funds to buy signs for the paths. At least 600 are needed, and they cost $150 each.

The 9th District Court of Appeals is set to hear arguments Tuesday from Medina County residents and the company behind the NEXUS pipeline.

The arguments will focus on whether or not NEXUS needs permission from landowners to enter their property for surveying purposes.

The hearing comes less than a year after a Medina County judge ruled in favor of the company.
