City prepares for Total Solar Eclipse

March 7, 2024
The City of Perrysburg has been preparing for the Total Solar Eclipse happening on Monday, April 8. The City will be within the band of totality and is expected to experience around three minutes of darkness, making it a great location to witness this once-in-a-lifetime event.  

Statewide predictions indicate that there could be an influx of travelers in and around Perrysburg. Because of this, city officials have been making plans to accommodate while keeping residents and citizens safe. The following measures are being put into place: 

  • The roads highlighted in red on the map below have been designated as Emergency Response Corridors from April 6-9, 2024. This means that vehicles that are illegally parked on these roads will be ticketed and immediately towed. Parking will only be allowed in designated spots. Cones with no parking signs will be along those roads as a reminder. 

  • Public Wi-Fi at Rotary, Municipal, Woodlands, and Rivercrest Parks will be restricted beginning the evening of Sunday, April 7 through the morning of Tuesday, April 9. This is to ensure that Perrysburg emergency responders have a designated place to communicate with each other should communications such as cellular service be disrupted. 

  • There will be a one-day delay in garbage, recycling and yard waste pick-up the week of April 8.  

  • All City offices, including Perrysburg Municipal Court, will be closed on Monday, April 8.

The City of Perrysburg has set up a web page to communicate eclipse information to the public. It can be found here.
