Cleveland Heights and Start Right CDC Break Ground on First New Housing in the Caledonia Neighborhood in 30 Years 
From left to right: Rev. Dr. Jimmie Hicks, Jr., Councilmember Gail Larson, Council Vice President Craig Cobb, Mayor Kahlil Seren, Council President Melody Joy Hart, Councilmember Davida Russell, Councilmember Tony Cuda.
Today, May 13, 2022, the City of Cleveland Heights and Start Right Community Development Corporation (CDC) broke ground on the first of a series of new infill-construction, single-family, owner-occupied homes in the city’s Caledonia neighborhood.
The event was held at 961 Nelaview Road, the location of the first home Start Right CDC intends to build as part of its “Caledonia Homes” initiative.
In October 2021, the City of Cleveland Heights entered into an agreement with Start Right CDC to construct up to 23 new homes in the Caledonia neighborhood. Start Right CDC is required to complete construction of three homes by the end of 2022 and must complete a minimum of six homes by June 30, 2024. All Caledonia Homes will be built on City-owned property along Nelaview, Greyton, Hanover, and Dresden Roads in Cleveland Heights.

“The last recession and housing crisis carved holes in some of our city’s neighborhoods, leaving vacant lots where there used to be homes and families,” Cleveland Heights Mayor Kahlil Seren said. “The City of Cleveland Heights is committed to restoring the fabric of these neighborhoods by working with our partners to put homes back on these vacant properties.”

“Caledonia Homes is the first new construction housing development in this neighborhood in more than thirty years,” Seren added. “I can assure you it won’t be the last. Every neighborhood in our city deserves respect and attention, and this is just the beginning for Caledonia.”

Mayor Seren was joined at the groundbreaking by Cleveland Heights City Council President Melody Joy Hart, Vice President Craig Cobb, Councilmembers Davida Russell, Anthony Mattox Jr., Tony Cuda, Gail Larson, members of the Caledonia Homes project team, and neighborhood residents.
