Director's Corner

"And all at once, summer collapsed into fall." If there is one thing we can all be thankful for, it is that in Cleveland we get all four seasons.

I want to give a special thank you to Greater Cleveland Partnership’s (GCP) President and CEO Baiju Shah for giving the keynote speech at our Manufacturing and Industry Luncheon. He spoke to the GCP’s “All In” on Cleveland report and highlighted the energy around improving our Lakefront and uplifting, "a great region on a great lake!"

At that luncheon we also launched our Business Membership Program! Membership to our Stakeholder Association comes with several benefits: your logo and links to your organization on our website and newsletter, networking opportunities, and a member door cling. But, most importantly, it shows that you’re a part of the fabric of the community and helps share the story of this extraordinary neighborhood. Become a member today by reaching out to Michelle Davis at 216-777-3187 or via email at [email protected].

From SCSDC: Real Estate & Placemaking Updates

The St. Clair Superior Development Corporation's (SCSDC) service area was recently highlighted with a wonderful tour attended by our Board of Directors. It was a way to familiarize the Board members with the service area, its features and all the wonderful people and places within its boundaries.

Some of the special places they stopped at on the tour route were Boss K9, St. Martin de Porres High School, Ingenuity Cleveland, Rebuilders Xchange, The Slovenian National Home, Upcycle Parts Shop and the business district along Hamilton Street. They ended their day with Tabitha Ivory, the Interim Director at the EJ Kovacic Rec Center, where a hearty lunch was served and a presentation delivered on future placemaking activities from Cleveland’s own LAND studio. Be on the lookout for that in next month's Spotlight!

This tour provided everyone with a better understanding of "placemaking" and how creating quality places that people want to live, work, play and learn in are so valuable and important. The SCSDC Board members came away with a better understanding of our neighborhood and the organization they work to support.

4walls Becomes First Member of SCSDC's Stakeholder Association

4 Walls is a long-time St. Clair Superior business located in the Twist & Drill building at the corner of E 49th & Lakeside Avenue. Their space is warm and welcoming as it showcases their products, unique wall coverings. Brian English purchased the company with his wife in 2016, although the business itself started in 1998. It was created in response to wallpaper falling out of style, yet the need for the product to have a modern style. Their wall coverings are printed digitally, to order, ensuring that inventory does not get wasted or just sit on shelves. They have two hard copy books that are used by interior designers that get updated with completely new styles and designs twice a year. Customers can pick from any of the past years, but providing designers inspiration to help build designs for spaces they are creating is the unique niche the fill in this market. They print on a variety of textures and types of papers, vinyl, window film, and acoustic panels. They also create custom designs with their customers.

4 Walls operates in 40,000 square feet of space with more than 40 employees. In addition to 4 Walls, they own a company called Art Walls, where they print stretched artwork on wood frames for Wayfair and other businesses. During our tour of 4walls, we could see the workers were busy and enjoying an inviting atmosphere provided to them.

St. Clair Superior Development Corporation is excited to announce that 4 Walls is the first member of our Stakeholder Association. Brian attended our Manufacturing and Industry Luncheon and wanted to be a member to connect with other neighborhood businesses, and to provide connections for his employees to neighborhood institutions, local shopping and restaurants. Thank you, 4 Walls! You can learn more about them here.

Connecting Children to Nature Survey

Western Reserve Land Conservancy is implementing the Cities Connecting Children to Nature initiative in northeast Ohio. Over the last two years, the Land Conservancy has organized a group of stakeholders in our region to embark on a process to create equitable access to nature for children living in urban areas.

As a first step in this thoughtful process, they are seeking community input as they create a Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights (COBOR), which aims to list the nature experiences that every child has the right to enjoy as they grow up in our region.

To that end, the Land Conservancy is asking residents of Cleveland to complete this brief survey to help guide them down the path of creating equitable access to nature.

Help Create Digital Equity in Cleveland

As part of their aim to fully capture the current state of digital access in Cleveland, the City of Cleveland is launching a Digital Access Survey that will help assess the current climate around connectivity to the internet and related digital needs.

This survey is a fundamental part of a larger citywide outreach effort to seek and get input on their draft plan through a series of in-person listening sessions across town, aimed at reaching as many Clevelanders as possible.

The City is asking all Clevelanders to participate in this survey. You can complete the survey online or by filling out this PDF document. Share the QR code to help the City reach as many Clevelanders as possible!

Help Shape Cleveland's Lakefront

Join the conversation! Share your reactions to the initial sketches for the North Coast Master Plan, and continue to shape Cleveland's lakefront with your ideas.

Take the survey here or call 216-664-2210 for a paper copy.
