From the Desk of Mayor Hardman
As summer comes to an end, there is an annual ritual that takes place across our country. Neighbors and friends gather together with data, strategies and aspirations. Yes, it is time for the annual Fantasy Football Draft! For the last four years, my sons and I, my sons’ friends and their Dads have gathered at Sharonville’s Blue Goose to pick their teams for a football season of fun. Just another example of our community coming together as THE City to Live, Work & Play.
We are truly blessed by spots on our downtown loop, like the Goose, Depot Deli, Roc-a-Fella’s, Game On Fitness and on and on, that encourage community gathering. Those spots continue to improve. After over 10 years in Downtown Sharonville, Alreddy Coffee & Café has expanded their hours into the evening and now can serve beer and wine. Angilo’s added a new outdoor seating area that is a perfect place to sit and enjoy a pizza or hoagy on a beautiful fall day. Throughout the loop, with assistance from the City’s small business façade grant program, I hope you have noticed changes to longstanding establishments like Chinese Imperial Inn, Al’s Bar, Athenian and the Sharonville Cultural Arts Center.
The commitment to maintaining a City for living, working and playing goes beyond just our historic downtown. Our local Kroger recently held a grand re-opening of their newly remodeled store with the help of the Princeton High School Marching Band. Along Chester Road – our Northern Lights Corridor – Third Eye Brewery broke ground and is expected to be open for guests in the first quarter of 2020. Chamoda’s Candy Café has brightened up its exterior and continues to brighten up the day of its guests who stops in for a sweet treat (really, those gummy bears cannot be beat). And excitement continues to build for the renovated Delta Marriott hotel and its rooftop bar.
As my kids cheer on their players throughout the 2019-2020 football season in hopes of gaining possession of the Sharonville Kids League Fantasy Football Championship trophy, I hope you will join me in cheering on our City. Great things have and continue to happen here in Sharonville. What really makes this town special are its residents, businesses and employees. We are all the reason that Sharonville is THE City to Live, Work and Play.
