This zone has been established as a courtesy to and for the protection of the Borough of Beachwood residents involved in conducting in-person transactions that have been facilitated through online marketplaces such as; Ebay, Craigslist, & Facebook marketplace.

The Borough of Beachwood and the Beachwood Police Department will make no guarantees, assurances, or promises as to the safety or security of any in-person transaction that may take place on Borough property.
