  1. Burten, Bell, Carr Development, Inc., the CDC that serves the Central and Kinsman neighborhoods of Cleveland, has two real estate development positions available: http://www.bbcdevelopment.org/2018/01/work-with-bbc-two-re-development-positions-now-open/ Please message me if you have questions.
  2. OSU Extension's new offices are going on that site. When I think urban agriculture, I think about how spot-on this article is: http://rustwire.com/2011/08/29/cleveland-and-agriculture-are-we-asking-the-wrong-questions/
  3. Cleveland Critical Mass December Ride Friday, December 30, 2011 - 7pm Join us for Cleveland Critical Mass on Friday, December 30. We begin meeting in the southwest quadrant of Public Square at 6:30pm, then leave at 7pm to ride bikes. CCM happens this and every last Friday of the month regardless of snow, ice, cold, or rain. (However, rule of thumb is that, the nastier the weather, the shorter the ride.) This month's ride will conclude at Mitzi Jerman's Cafe, 3840 St. Clair Avenue in Asiatown. If you haven't been, Mitzi's is a legendary bar with cheap drinks, an amazing jukebox, and a lot of character, and has been recognized as one of America's greatest dive bars by Playboy and Esquire. Photographer and CCM regular Frank Lanza would like to take a shot of CCM this month with the Cleveland skyline in the background. His vision is for it to become viral so that other cities can see that bikes are what's hip in Cleveland. CCM's mission statement and guiding principles, photos and video of past rides, press, and ways you can contribute to perpetuate the local mass are on clevelandcriticalmass.com.

  5. Dudes, Burten, Bell, Carr Development, Inc. doesn't serve Ward 7, but has an employee whose sole focus is Ward 7. It may be that that individual has been working on the rezoning with the councilman to set the stage for future development. I'm fairly sure that those other CDCs that you listed are NOT behind this.

  8. More from Bike Cleveland, the new nonprofit cycling advocacy organization. --- West Shoreway Public Meeting We are writing to encourage you to attend a very important public meeting for Cleveland's bike community that is taking place Thursday, December 1st from 6-8pm at Franklin Circle Christian Church. Bicycle and pedestrian connections to Cleveland’s lakefront are in jeopardy. The City of Cleveland and the Ohio Department of Transportation are discussing ways to cut costs on the West Shoreway project, and the multi-purpose trail along the lakefront is in danger of being cut from current funding. Bike Cleveland is encouraging you to attend to hear about the changes and to tell the decision makers to keep their promise and invest in biking and walking on the West Shoreway. The expectation of Bike Cleveland is that the West Shoreway plan will make active modes a priority as they were in the initial Lakefront Plan from 2004. The plan should incorporate dedicated bike and pedestrian infrastructure in the initial, funded round of construction. Project aims related to auto infrastructure take a secondary position to that original priority. For more on Bike Cleveland's position regarding the West Shoreway read our op-ed submitted to the Plain Dealer. We need all cyclists and supporters of cycling to attend this crucial public meeting: WEST SHOREWAY PUBLIC MEETING Thursday, December 1st from 6pm-8pm Franklin Circle Christian Church 1688 Fulton Avenue Cleveland, OH 44113 Let us know you are coming to the meeting and tell your friends on Facebook. There will also be a group riding to the meeting from Joy Machines Bike Shop at 5:45pm. We are also asking supporters of including multipurpose trails in the funded portion of the West Shoreway to sign our petition. We hope to see you tomorrow night at the public meeting. Lets show the city that we support bicycle and pedestrian investments!
  9. I'd recommend calling the City of Cleveland Department of Building and Housing complaint line. Also, follow up with a second phone call to the Mayor's Action Center. You can either google the numbers for both or just call 664-2000 and have the operator direct your call. I don't know that it will do you any good to call the councilman. If it's really a problem, it's not unreasonable nor unheard of to get a piece of plywood and box of screws and board the door yourself.

  13. The stretch of Kinsman between East 55th Street and East 84th is attracting an absolute ton of investment. --- Grant to help Cleveland's Kinsman residents find nutrition relief in a food desert http://blog.cleveland.com/metro/2011/10/grant_to_help_clevelands_kinsm.html CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Residents in a part of Cleveland's Kinsman neighborhood will soon get some relief from living in a food desert -- where dollar burgers and quarter candies often are more accessible than fresh fruits, vegetables and other good nutrition.
