Happy New Year! 

Ward 19 Becomes Ward 17 on January 6


The city charter says that as the population of the city decreases (or increases), the number of wards should be adjusted to fit. Beginning January 6, the number of wards change from 19 to 17, and a majority of the residents currently in our service area will be in the new Ward 17. Generally, the new ward will encompass nearly all of the city west of the train tracks with a small area carved out in the north end of the ward. Of note is that the ward will now include Cleveland Hopkins Airport, and all the areas south of Puritas, including Riverside Park Estates and the industrial areas. Click here to find your ward. 

SouperMarket to Open January 6

The fourth area SouperMarket is slated to open at 16804 Lorain Avenue on Monday, January 6. This space recently housed Big Daddy's Cheesesteaks. Matt and the gang at SouperMarket are looking forward to bringing their fine hand-crafted soups, stocks, and broths to their new Kamm's Corners neighbors and to making 2014 the best year yet!
