Chinese Lanterns

chinese lantern

Mayfield Heights has a rather large party center, which is having an event possibly involving deployment of 50 Chinese lanterns.  I am not in favor of allowing these lanterns to be deployed, for obvious reasons.  The Mayor is supporting my decision, but would like to know if any other agency has had any dealings/issues/requests with these lanterns.

Even if you have not had any dealings with these, please be aware of them, they seem to be popping up everywhere now a days.

Any information you may on these is greatly appreciated.

  1. Hi Chief,

    We had a similar situation in Broadview Hts. A church wanted to release a couple hundered of these “lanterns”. We did not allow it, and had council pass an ordinance to more easily detour this type of thing in the future. See attached link:
