Cleveland Heights voters turnout and a clean sweep for ballot issues

A sincere thanks to the volunteer poll workers, city staff, candidates and, most of all, the voters of Cleveland Heights for participating in this week’s General Election.

Congratulations to the candidates-elect for City Council, Municipal Court, and for the supporters of Issues 1, 2 and 5, all of which passed.

Cleveland Heights selected as a 'Legacy City' to develop a future scenario plan with public

Cleveland Heights is one of two ‘legacy cities’ in Ohio selected by the Lincoln Institute on Land Use to take part in a ‘scenario planning’ workshop where the public is asked to weigh in on questions of the future of the city.

The workshop—to take place on a date in 2024—will tap the technical knowledge of Lincoln Institute and partner organizations, including the Greater Ohio Policy Center and Cleveland State University Levin College of Urban Affairs, to determine what ‘legacy cities’ like Cleveland Heights (and the second, selected city, Hamilton, OH) require to chart a course for redevelopment that leads to economic and population growth.

“It’s Mayor Seren’s vision to return to the peak of our population,” said Cleveland Heights Director of Planning and Development Eric Zamft. “The challenge is, even if every vacant building is filled, we wouldn’t get there because of a decrease in household size (a trend across the U.S.).”

At the scenario planning workshop, participants may be asked to think about how the city can shift from a predominance of single-family housing to more options, such as multifamily housing, and creative reuse of structures such as maker spaces and light industrial space.

“We approach that by asking, ‘how do we adapt and thrive in the future, one of transformation’?” Zamft added. “We’ve seen sometimes that is clouded by a lack of information.”

Information will be gathered and presented by a consultant hired by the Lincoln Institute, followed by a lively scenario planning exercise where groups select redevelopment options, build a case, and finally present it for consideration.

Shaker lands grant for regional mental health response program


What started out as a mental health response team “pilot” program seems to be catching on.

The U.S. Department of Justice has awarded Shaker Heights a nearly $400,000 “Community-oriented Policing Services (COPS)” grant to expand the program among its four other partner cities in the original Heights-Hillcrest joint dispatch center.

That way, the wealth gets spread to Cleveland Heights, Richmond Heights, South Euclid, and University Heights, who, along with Shaker, are now part of the larger Chagrin Valley Dispatch (CVD) network.

Since the merger in 2021, their original communications center has remained in the MetroHealth System’s Cleveland Heights Medical Center, located on Severance Circle and now adjacent to the newer Behavioral Health Hospital.

The concept seems simple enough: having a social worker embedded with first responders on what appear to be crisis interventions more than police and ambulance calls.

Cleveland Heights council asked to revisit plans for Noble Station


Another deadline has arrived at the resurrected Noble Station, where prospective developers of a low- to moderate-income apartment complex seek an extension on their purchase option for city-owned land until next June.

City Council voted down a development agreement for a $14.7 million, four-story, 52-unit building on the former McDonald’s restaurant site in the Noble-Nela neighborhood in September. Council cited short notice and lack of community support for the project.

But developers could still receive an extension on state housing tax credits through the Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA) if council acts before a state-imposed Nov. 15 deadline and continues TWG Development’s $245,000 option-to-purchase the 2.1-acre site.

With that in mind, council agreed to add the amended legislation to its agenda Monday night (Nov. 6) for first reading, then scheduled a special meeting the following Monday (Nov. 13) to vote on the extension.

This will allow time for TWG to come back with a better proposal.
