  1. Minor, but noteworthy; Lakewood promoting bicycle use with brand-new corrals on Detroit and Madison avenues Today 7:17 AM By John Benson, special to cleveland.com LAKEWOOD, Ohio -- Lakewood continues to make good on its 2011 cycling master plan with various infrastructure additions and improvements coming to the community.

  2. What a fascinating, unusual story. Hope he can get some help and community support. Rapper from Japan with dreams of meeting Bone Thugs gets stranded in Cleveland POSTED 6:56 PM, OCTOBER 15, 2019, BY ED GALLEK, UPDATED AT 07:40PM, OCTOBER 15, 2019 https://fox8.com/2019/10/15/rapper-from-japan-with-dreams-of-meeting-bone-thugs-gets-stranded-in-cleveland/
  3. One day, I'm going to spend some time creating the list of East side neighborhood threads to match the west side: House of Wills: Long abandoned Cleveland funeral home with fascinating past gets new life (photos) The Plain Dealer CLEVELAND, Ohio - If any place should have its share of ghosts, it would be Cleveland’s House of Wills. But to call the crumbling funeral home with the mysterious name on East 55th Street haunted is to trivialize its story. Though many people’s thoughts turn to the looming 50,000-square-foot edifice around Halloween as they imagine the spirits that loom behind its ivy-covered walls, the House of Wills deserves attention all year. https://www.cleveland.com/life-and-culture/g66l-2019/10/85aeeb239f5112/house-of-wills-long-abandoned-cleveland-funeral-home-with-fascinating-past-gets-new-life-photos.html

By Chris Mosby, Patch Staff Sep 30, 2019 8:52 am ET CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Orchestra generates $135 million annually for Northeast Ohio, according to a study commissioned by the organization. The orchestra's impact is felt across seven Ohio counties. "The Cleveland Orchestra provides terrific value to the people of Northeast Ohio and is an invaluable asset in helping our company recruit the best talent from around the nation," said Richard Smucker, chair of Cleveland Orchestra and executive chairman of The J.M. Smucker Company. "The Cleveland Orchestra is also the only art form from this region that travels the globe every year, and as such it performs an important role as ambassador for the city. By carrying the name of Cleveland in this way, the Orchestra provides many of our region's companies with exciting connections to new international business possibilities." https://patch.com/ohio/cleveland/cleveland-orchestra-generates-135-million-impact-annually
  11. Cleveland awarded $9.7 million, Cuyahoga $5.6 million in federal grants for lead cleanup in Glenville, suburbs Today 1:49 PM By Rachel Dissell, The Plain Dealer CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland is one of seven communities in the country that was awarded a new “High Impact Neighborhood” grant by the the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Cleveland’s $9.7 million award, announced Monday, will allow the city to mount an intense effort to cleanup lead paint hazards and improve the health of housing in a section of Glenville, a neighborhood with historically high rates of lead poisoning. In its application, the city estimated the grant could help reduce lead hazards in more than 600 Glenville homes. https://www.cleveland.com/news/2019/10/cleveland-awarded-97-million-cuyahoga-56-million-in-federal-grants-for-lead-cleanup-in-glenville-suburbs.html
  12. From our chatter above consistently discussing non-Circle North projects in Glenville and our previous chatter about the need to better represent East side neighborhoods, I propose we rename this thread to either: Cleveland: Glenville: Development and News or Cleveland: Glenville / East Boulevard: Development and News I kind of like the second one better, to match what we have for "Cudell / West Boulevard" thread. For those not familiar with East Boulevard...a ton of home renovations have been going on...he's an article from a few years ago: https://www.freshwatercleveland.com/features/eastboulevard110314.aspx And a good example from this year, the proposed Cultural Gardens Welcome Center at E.99th and East Boulevard: https://www.ideastream.org/news/famicos-foundation-seeks-cleveland-cultural-gardens-welcome-center
  13. ^Sorry guys, that was tongue-in-cheek...I should have done a winky face or some other different emoji. And the west side "finally" getting something was a joke too. Relatedly, you can see the demolished building by going back in time from the Google Streetview link.
  14.

"I was always in love with this building. When I came to America I worked at Heck's and I'm taking the bus, and all the time I would say 'What's going on with this building, why is it closed?' " The building, at 10031 Detroit Avenue just west of West Boulevard, had been closed since 1997 until Zaloshnja opened it June 1, said Giuseppe O'Connell, a veteran restaurant worker, server and de facto manager. In an earlier incarnation, The Palazzo was Palmina's Restaurant, which stood for decades. That restaurant opened in 1947 across the street from the current location before it moved in 1954. The city had appropriated its location for the West Side Rapid Transit. https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2019/10/the-palazzo-realizes-chef-owners-dream-on-clevelands-west-side.html
