Mayor Seren Release First Quarterly Video Update

Today, Cleveland Heights Mayor Kahlil Seren released his first quarterly video update to residents.

“One of the commitments I made during last year’s campaign was that I’d report to the residents of Cleveland Heights each quarter about the progress we’ve made instead of making an annual ‘state of the city’ address,” Mayor Seren said. “We’re building a new form of government in Cleveland Heights, and our community needs more than an annual update.”

Mayor Seren intends to release similar video updates every quarter.

REMINDER: 2022 Exterior Housing Inspections

Once every five years, the City of Cleveland Heights inspects the exteriors of all owner-occupied, single-family homes. There is NO FEE for these inspections. Inspections are conducted on a street-by-street basis as part of a five-year rotation.

Properties that have had a point-of-sale inspection conducted within the preceding three years are not subject to a new exterior inspection.

If you have any questions, please visit our webpage or call Inspectional Services at (216) 291-5900. To find out if your street is being inspected, visit our systematic inspections webpage.
