  1. Is it possible the City just doesn’t want to pursue the purchase WITH Geis, but still buy the building?
  2. The Cleveland school district’s own website has a lot of data to search options. You are allowed to attend any school in the district if you live in Cleveland. https://mycleschool.org The Plain Dealer has a pretty nice searchable database from the just released school report cards. You can search by district or individual school buildings within districts. https://www.cleveland.com/datacentral/index.ssf/2018/09/2018_ohio_school_report_cards.html
  3. Does your commute matter to you? Because that could sway the east side vs. west side neighborhoods. I would say Ohio City is the most “complete” neighborhood regarding walking to shops, restaurants, etc. on the west side. The Gordon Square and Battery Park areas of Detroit Shoreway would be close behind. Edgewater is a beautiful neighborhood but I would say is more residential. I don’t know if you’ve considered Lakewood, but it would probably tick all of your boxes, and with better schools than Cleveland. Much luck to you, I just bought a home in OC recently and the competition is fierce in the market,

    Cleveland: Crime & Safety Discussion

    Wow, I live at 28th and Franklin. This is terrible. And I live at 38th and Clinton. I don’t want to feel like I can’t walk around my own neighborhood. I'll say this, I've never even felt so much as uncomfortable in my neighborhood Which is why I need to get off of the Ohio City community Facebook page...talk about fear mongering lol.

    Cleveland: Crime & Safety Discussion

    The number of random attacks/robberies in downtown and the near west side is worrying. The two downtown attacks listed above and two violent robberies in Ohio City recently as well. https://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2018/09/minnesota_couple_attacked_robb.html https://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2018/09/group_attacks_man_from_behind.html

    Specifically regarding CMSD, the “chicken and the egg” is the whole reason the Ohio Supreme Court rules school funding unconstitutional what, 20 years ago? Poverty stricken districts with many disadvantaged students have continued since then to poorly perform. But, I suppose Cleveland needs to work with the system we’re stuck with to try and improve in any way they can since Columbus won’t help. But otherwise I completely agree with you, and this is coming from a Cleveland resident.
  8. I went last night and spoke with Dan and the architect. They really don’t want a glut of parking. Often times community leaders and shareholders mandate projects to have a minimum amount of parking spaces. I was told that the garage spaces could eventually become other uses like apartments if we ever get past auto dependency (unlikely). The only concerns I heard from residents was about the plans to reconfigure Ghering and access to Tremont because many residents use it as a shortcut to drive through? Dan also said they’re trying to work with RTA to improve access to the rapid station. They sounded committed to TOD. I’m interested to see how the plans evolve. W 20th is a block away and I think is a much easier way to get to and from Tremont as it is. Maybe will have a add a signal there if traffic picks up, but I don’t think removing Ghering will ultimately affect access much.
  9. I honestly don’t understand how this project would impact parking at all. It’s not eliminating any parking, except for the businesses which will no longer be there anyway. And there will be some parking included for residents and WSM tenants.
  10. NJ.com must be the last to go. NOLA.com received the wonderful redesign as well.
  11. This was probably a decision that came down from Gannett. They own several regional news sites and they all have the same UI. I think that the old cleveland.com looked dated, but the new one is just a total mess, at least on desktop. i think cle dot com, along with the similar nj dot com, oregon got com, etc. websites are all still owned and run by si newhouse’s advance media empire, are they not? Correct. Gannett owns the Cincy Enquirer.

    A great article in the New Yorker about the failures of implementing Broken Windows policing and what the policies are missing. The study the researchers did focused on the crime rates around rehabilitated properties. It showed a 39% reduction in crime when a building is remediate and 5% when a lot is. It’s a great read. The only thing I couldn’t figure out but would like to know, is the difference in rehabbing and abandoned home versus demolishing it like we’re doing here. https://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/the-other-side-of-broken-windows?utm_source=citylab-daily&silverid=MzEwMTkwMTMyNDIwS0
  13. Apparently the co-founders parted ways after opening the original location in Tremont. Must have been personal issues if he went off and started the exact same restaurant again ha.
