The city has issued a "Message from the Mayor," announcing two meetings of interest for next week.
From the August 7, 2017 email:
I would like to invite you to a Community Safety Meeting on Wednesday, August 16th at 7 p.m. in the Donahue Auditorium of the Dolan Science Center at John Carroll University. Entrance to the building is on the east and west sides and there is plentiful parking. A panel including Police Chief Steven Hammett, Law Director Luke McConville, and Prosecutor William (Bud) Doyle will present safety statistics for our city and share information about the criminal investigation process. We would like to hear your concerns and answer your questions about crime and safety in University Heights. We will also provide information about recent legislative initiatives. I hope to see you there!
Cuyahoga County will fund competitive grants for city improvement projects and we are busily researching ideas. We would also like to hear your project ideas and welcome your suggestions! Please come to a meeting at City Hall on Monday, August 14th at 6:30 p.m. for refreshments and idea-sharing. The County grants will fund commercial storefront improvements, and programs or capital improvements for two city neighborhoods. The two eligible neighborhoods are: 1) the Cedar-Green area, including streets between Cedar and Groveland, and between Fenway (east of Green) and Belvoir; and 2) the Cedar-Taylor area, including streets between Silsby and Washington, and between Barrington and Taylor. If you are not able to attend the meeting and have ideas, please email your suggestions to email@example.com or call 932-7800 x203. Thank you!
Two of the main issues we've identified in this campaign are improving public safety and revitalizing our business districts. It is gratifying to see the mayor's office respond by announcing meetings and inviting resident feedback during the city's traditional summer break. I encourage residents to attend if they can.
