Eagle Scout project creates path from Westlake Rec Center to Lilly Weston House
On Labor Day and Sept. 16, members of Boy Scout Troop 664 worked together on the Eagle Scout project of Noah Furin. The project consisted of the planning and construction of a segment of the Heritage Loop Trail behind the Lilly Weston House on Center Ridge Road in Westlake. This was a collaborative effort through the Westlake Historical Society, in particular the Lilly Weston Committee, headed by Will Krause, and the City of Westlake.
The trail connects the walking path of the Recreation Center to the driveway of the historic Lilly Weston House. The Boy Scouts spread the concrete gravel along the length of the path using wheelbarrows, shovels and rakes. With the installation of this trail, the Lilly Weston House can be more accessible to the people of Westlake. Also, it effectively creates a loop in the walking trail at the Rec Center for convenience.
Noah would like to thank Bob Kelly, Westlake city engineer; Chris Stuhm, the deputy director of public dervice; Jan Schmitt, Noah’s mentor from the Westlake Historical Society; Will Krause, Westlake assistant planning director; and Lysa Stanton, president of the Westlake Historical Society for their incredible help.
