Mayor Longo also serves on the board of the North East Ohio Regional Sewer District.

He is a member of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns Coalition [cite web| url=http://www.mayorsagainstillegalguns.org/html/about/members.shtml| title=Mayors Against Illegal Guns: Coalition Members] , a bi-partisan group with a stated goal of "making the public safer by getting illegal guns off the streets." The Coalition is co-chaired by Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Mayor Longo was instrumental in converting an old landfill to a shopping center named City View. Despite issues of venting methane gas which accumulated over the decades, this is the first project of its kind in Ohio to be built on Landfill.
