  1. Lakewood City Council expected to approve $72 million One Lakewood Place project Updated 7:23 AM; Today 6:28 AM By John Benson, special to cleveland.com LAKEWOOD, Ohio -- City Council early next month is expected to approve the proposed $72 million One Lakewood Place. The major mixed-use project is set for the city-owned former Lakewood Hospital site located at the southwest corner of Detroit and Belle avenues. “We’re at the final approval stage for basically what amounts to a rezoning of the property to a planned development (PD) district designation in our code,” City Council President Sam O’Leary said. “The underlying PD has been approved by our planning commission and architectural review board. The city council president noted the entire process has been resident-driven with community-visioning sessions through various boards, commissions and public meetings. “We’ve had really a number of opportunities for robust conversation with adjacent residents and businesses to make sure the development is reflective of what they want to see and sensitive to what they need,” O’Leary said. https://www.cleveland.com/community/2019/06/lakewood-city-council-expected-to-approve-72-million-one-lakewood-place-project.html
  2. 10 years later from the creation of this thread...a new article is born ... from the New York Times: A Cleveland River Once Oozed and Burned. It’s Now a Hot Spot. The Cuyahoga River burst into flames for the last time in 1969. As tourism climbs, the city celebrates the river’s rebound 50 years later. By Erik Piepenburg June 7, 2019 A misconception still clings to Cleveland and it comes down to three words: river on fire. From 1868 to 1969, the polluted Cuyahoga River, which cleaves Cleveland into east and west, caught fire 13 times. In 1969, a photo in Time magazine dramatically showed a brave little fire department boat battling a wall of angry flames. This June marks the 50th anniversary of the day in Cleveland when the Cuyahoga River burst into flames for the last time. Outrage over the disaster led to the creation of state and federal environmental protection agencies and to the passage of the federal Clean Water Act. Thanks to environmental safeguards and the formation of a regional sewer district, the thriving river is helping to redefine Cleveland’s public face, to a point where tourism is up. In 2017, Destination Cleveland, the regional convention and visitors bureau, announced that Cleveland had seen an average increase of nearly 550,000 visitors per year for the previous eight years. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/07/travel/cleveland-cuyahoga-river-pollution.html

  5. Cleveland's population flattens near 385,000 after decades of big losses, new census estimates say By Rich Exner, cleveland.com | Posted May 23, 2019 at 12:01 AM CLEVELAND, Ohio - Cleveland’s population appears to be leveling off heading into the official count next year after a half-century of significant losses at census time every 10 years. New estimates released Thursday place Cleveland’s population at 383,793 for 2018, down 0.4 percent from 385,428 a year earlier. The number is just an estimate, as opposed to the more precise official count that will be conducted in April 2020. But the estimate is another piece of evidence of a stabilizing city, coupled with recovering home sales prices and large new residential housing projects in some areas such as the near West Side. https://expo.cleveland.com/news/g66l-2019/05/d1695a54c89135/clevelands-population-flattens-near-385000-after-decades-of-big-losses-new-census-estimates-say.html

Some Cleveland playoff baseball CWRU Baseball Receives NCAA Championship Bid; To Face Otterbein in First Game May 13, 2019 The Case Western Reserve University baseball team was selected as one of the 58 teams to receive a bid to the NCAA Division III Championships, and will compete in the regional round in Wooster, Ohio from May 17-19, opening play against Otterbein University. The Spartans received one of the two 'Pool B' bids to the tournament, awarded to independent teams or teams in conferences without an automatic bid to the tournament. CWRU, which finished the year with a 22-13 overall record and is seeded second in the draw, will now face Otterbein, the winner of the Ohio Athletic Conference Tournament and seeded third, on Friday, May 17th https://athletics.case.edu/sports/bsb/2018-19/releases/20190513iw0zu5
  8. www.facebook.com%2Fclevelandrestoration%2Fposts%2F2465082576838019 Congratulations to the City of Cleveland and all project partners of Highland Park Mausoleum, the 2019 Celebration of Preservation recipient of the Distinguished Restoration Award. Join us on Wednesday, May 22nd at the Ohio Theatre as we recognize this project and 12 others for achievements in historic preservation. Built in 1926 by the City of Cleveland, the Highland Park Mausoleum was the first municipally owned and operated mausoleum in the country. The impressive building also housed administrative offices for all of the city’s cemeteries, a crematorium and chapel. The building functioned in this capacity until 2010, when it was vacated due to severe disrepair.
  9. What's additionally sad was the renovation work being offered up as well, for these three properties, as part of this project.
  10. Little Italy apartment proposal sparks residents’ opposition, saying ‘respect the neighborhood’ Updated 8:16 AM; Today 8:07 AM By Jordyn Grzelewski, The Plain Dealer CLEVELAND, Ohio – A proposed Little Italy apartment project is going before the Cleveland Landmarks Commission on Thursday. The plan, however, is not without opposition from neighbors. Developers want to tear down two houses on Cornell Road to make way for an apartment building at Cornell and Murray Hill roads. The plan has evolved over the past several months as neighborhood residents raised concerns. Based on that feedback, developers tweaked their plans, scaling the project back from an initial proposal of 66 units to 50, and reducing the height of the building. Even with those changes, however, a neighborhood design-review committee that advises the city’s planning and landmarks commissions rejected the design at a meeting Tuesday, and some neighborhood residents say they are still dissatisfied. https://www.cleveland.com/business/2019/05/little-italy-apartment-proposal-sparks-residents-opposition-saying-respect-the-neighborhood.html
