On May 13, 2022, Summit DD officially moved into its new administrative building in Cuyahoga Falls. This completed a two-year plan that moved the organization’s operations from Tallmadge to its existing buildings in Barberton and Cuyahoga Falls. The move came after careful planning and assessments that helped make Summit DD’s offices more accessible to all residents within Summit County.
There has been a lot of activity at this former property over the past year. We’re happy to report that this campus that has helped so many of our fellow community members and families throughout the past 50 years, continues to support our Summit County communities, just new ways. Here’s the latest about how the former campus continues to evolve.
The former Weaver Learning Center (Summit DD) Building is being torn down. Does that mean Summit DD is going away?
No. This is no longer the site of Summit DD’s administrative offices. Our offices can now be found in Barberton and downtown Cuyahoga Falls. We invite you to visit us at either our Barberton location (501 West Hopocan Avenue, Barberton, OH 44203) or our administrative offices in Cuyahoga Falls (2355 Second Street, Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44221) M-F 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Summit DD has been here for more than 50 years and continues to support more than 5,000 children and adults with developmental disabilities throughout Summit County. (Learn more about how we support people here.)
Who owns the former Weaver Learning Center (Summit DD) Campus in Tallmadge?
The campus was divided and sold to the City of Tallmadge and the County of Summit. (Read more about those details here.) The two smaller buildings were purchased by the County of Summit. They are currently be used to house the consolidated dispatch center and address storage needs of County public safety teams.
The larger building and soccer fields were purchased by the City of Tallmadge to benefit city residents. After careful consideration by the City of Tallmadge, the larger building is set to be demolished using a Summit County Land Bank Discretionary Grant for the City’s economic development. The project is expected to begin early September of and wrap up by the end of 2023. Please contact the City of Tallmadge with any questions regarding future plans for site. Contact them by phone at 330-633-0857 or by visiting their website at Tallmadge-Ohio.org.
What will the City of Tallmadge do with the property after the demolition?
We can’t speculate what comes next for this property. However we encourage you to reach out to the City of Tallmadge with any questions regarding the future development. Please contact the City of Tallmadge at 330-633-0857 or by visiting their website at Tallmadge-Ohio.org.
