New restaurant to open at former Harbor Inn
It was recently announced by George Beckman, Coventry Zoning inspector, that a new business may open soon in the location of the old Harbor Inn restaurant in Coventry, located about 17 miles to the south of stow. The building is located at 563 Portage Lakes Drive and has been empty since the Harbor Inn restaurant closed its doors in September last year.
Beckman was unable to provide specifics about the new restaurant and would not say if it has a similar atmosphere as the former restaurant did. However, The Crest Group, a property management company representing the owners, announced later in the day that the new restaurant will be called On Tap Grill and Bar at the Harbor. John Nassos is the new operator of the business and has previously operated four other On Tap restaurants in Stow, Cuyahoga Falls, medina, and Bath.
New restaurants and other businesses that come to the area may choose to utilize the printing services of local printing companies for advertising materials. Banner printing may be needed for grand opening ceremonies and other activities. Flyer printing, poster printing, and catalog printing may also be used to draw the interest of local consumers in the days or weeks before the business opens.
Crest Group officials reported that the owner intends to maintain casual adult dining, an affordable menu, and a large selection of beer. Renovations to the building are currently taking place and the restaurant is scheduled to open in April.

Young Alexis Schultz recently got the chance to see her artwork displayed in a window of Stow’s fire safety education van.
A Fire Safety Poster contest takes place each year in Stow. Area elementary students are given the opportunity to design a poster for a chance to have their artwork displayed and see it travel through the city. Each year, a committee selects the winning poster, prints it, and exhibits it on the city’s fire safety van.
Alexis was last year’s winner of the Fire Safety Poster contest and she already has plans brewing for this year’s poster. Last year’s contest was the 44th year the event was held and it received 251 poster submissions—more than any other year. Young Alexis’ poster from last year featured the theme “Get our Clan; Make a Fire Plan”.
When asked about whether she would be taking part in this year’s contest, the busy Highland Elementary said:
“Probably … if I can find the time in between dance, softball, volleyball, basketball, oasis, and swimming.”
Alexis was announced as the winner of last year’s Fire Safety Poster contest on January 12. The 12 finalists, consisting of elementary students from many of Stow’s elementary schools, enjoyed a social and an awards ceremony at City Hall.
Sandy Ray, Public Education Safety Officer, said that ever since Alexis’ poster was selected in the winter, she anxiously awaited the day she would see it displayed on the fire safety van. That day has finally and her artwork will be exhibited on the van until the winner of the 45th annual contest is selected.
