Unveiling of the Lucky Park Mural and
Short Business Meeting of the South of Jefferson Block Club
 
The Lucky Park mural commissioned by our Block Club using a Tremont Trek grant is completed. It is stunning! It was designed by Cleveland artist Rachel Usmani and is a wonderful representation of our neighborhood. The mural is printed on a windscreen that measures 7’ X 23.5’. It will be placed on the fence that separates Lucky Park from the first residence on Professor.

Our Neighborhood Votes/
Nuestro Vecindario Vota
New nonpartisan Our Neighborhood Votes!/¡Nuestro Vecindario Vota! yard signs have arrived - one side in English and the other side in Spanish! There are 100 yard signs available in all - get yours while supplies last!
 
These yard signs are available to residents in Tremont (in Wards 3, 12 & 14 portions), Duck Island, and Irishtown Bend neighborhoods; the yard signs are sponsored by the nonpartisan Our Neighborhood Votes/Nuestro Vecindario Vota residents committee.
 
The Committee is encouraging a suggested donation of $10/sign to defray printing costs and to support the voter registration/voter engagement work of this grassroots committee of neighborhood residents.
 
These nonpartisan yard signs can be picked up at the Tremont West offices (fiscal agent for the committee) at 2406 Professor on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays by scheduled appointment (face coverings are required at the office for pick-up). Please contact Scott Rosenstein, Community Involvement Manager at Tremont West, at 216.575.0920 ext. 106 to schedule a yard sign pick-up time.
