With Spring in full bloom, and summer on the horizon, I am already enjoying my time outdoors and seeing our park bustling again with families and the sounds of children having fun.

The Police and Fire Departments officially moved out of their building earlier this month. Extensive work has begun on the interior of the building, which includes correction to the water infiltration system, updated HVAC, and structural improvements. The Dispatch Center remains in tact. As a reminder, for all emergencies, please call 9-1-1.

  • For non-emergency calls to the Police Department, please call 440-442-1221.
  • For non-emergency calls to the Fire Department, please call 440-442-7406
Our 2nd annual Community Clean Up Day was held on Saturday, May 13th, having been rescheduled due to rainy weather conditions last month. Approximately twenty volunteers participated, which included residents, families, students, and friends, to help us clean up various areas of our community which required attention. Please see recognition and our group photo in this e-newsletter.

The Cuyahoga County Resurfacing Project on Wilson Mills Road continues for the next several months, with anticipated completion some time in August. The construction zone will be flipping to the south side by the end of this month.

In addition, you may have noticed the work taking place in front of Mayfield High School, directly in front of Miner Road. The Mayfield City Schools are conducting their own project, with the realignment of the entrance into Mayfield High School. This project is completely separate from the construction taking place on Wilson Mills Road by Cuyahoga County.

I cordially invite you to join us for our 28th Annual Memorial Day Observance Ceremony, which will be held on Monday, May 29th at 10:00 a.m. at the Veterans Peace Memorial, located adjacent to the Fire Department. We will honor those brave men and women who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. After completion of this year's Memorial Day Observance Ceremony, several enhancements and upgrades will be made to the area surrounding the Veterans Peace Memorial. This will include fresh landscaping and new signage. I look forward to sharing before and after photos with you.

As I mentioned in our Spring newsletter, the City of Highland Heights now has a YouTube Channel. In the event you are unable to attend our Memorial Day Observance Ceremony, you can view the ceremony at City of Highland Heights YouTube Channel. You can also click the YouTube Channel link at the bottom of this newsletter.

As I have mentioned over the course of the last two years, we have researched and secured grant funding to move forward with plans to enhance our Community Park with a trail to Bishop Road. This trail will serve as another route and change of scenery for people who enjoy walking through our park. Funding for this project was secured last year with estimates to enhance the trail currently under review. I look forward to sharing more updates on this project once final plans and estimates are finalized.

The 2023 Summer Newsletter will be in mailboxes late June. Be on the lookout for our Summer Concerts at the Gazebo, as well as other recreational activities. Don't forget to SAVE THE DATE for our annual Community Day and Parade on Saturday, July 22nd.
