Euclid City Council takes historic vote to launch innovative lakefront trail

 

By Steven Litt, The Plain Dealer

 

EUCLID, Ohio - Euclid City Council on Monday voted to build an innovative and nationally significant lakefront trail made possible by the city's agreement to pay for erosion control on private lakefront properties in exchange for easements allowing public access.

Naval nuclear supplier surveys $130 million investment in NEO

STAN BULLARD

 

Increased defense spending and revived nuclear energy efforts are prompting Lynchburg, Va.-based BWX Technologies Inc. to consider investing more than $130 million in its Northeast Ohio operations.

 

BWXT, a nuclear operations and services firm spun out in 2015 from Babcock & Wilcox, has received approvals for tax incentives for its operations at 24703 Euclid Ave. in Euclid and at 91 Stirling Ave. in Barberton from city councils in both cities.

 

If state tax incentives are approved by the Ohio Tax Creation Authority, perhaps at its next meeting in October, BWXT plans to spend $82 million in Barberton and add 88 jobs there. In Euclid, it would invest more than $50 million and create an additional 34 full-time jobs there. The jobs are expected to pay more than $70,000 annually, on average, according to material provided to the state.

Compare the progress on Euclid's Waterfront Improvement project as documented from our drone - from early spring to early fall 2019! Soon the vision in the render will become reality with substantial completion of the first phase of the lakefront trail expected in December 2019.

This is such a great project, and really a win-win for everyone. The public gains direct access to the lakefront, and the property owners gain protection from the erosion. The erosion has been absolutely insane, even just over the last year.

FreshWater is going On the Ground in Euclid

 

With ambitious waterfront improvements, the opening of the Amazon fulfillment center, and five opportunity zones in flux, all eyes seem to be on Euclid as it charts its next steps in reclaiming its status as a thriving inner-ring suburb.

FreshWater Cleveland will highlight the people, places, and projects shaping and transforming Euclid—as well as potential solutions to the myriad challenges facing the city—as part of a 10-week community reporting series kicking off this Thursday, Oct. 3.

Portrait of a city: Euclid is busy writing its next chapter

 

On Sept. 28, longtime Euclid residents Audrey and Victor Goodman gathered approximately 70 Euclidians at Shore Cultural Centre to give voice to everything from litter concerns to road resurfacing to police presence. Residents shared suggestions and proposed solutions with Mayor Kirsten Holzheimer Gail, Euclid police chief Scott Meyer, and Euclid City Schools interim superintendent Christopher Papouras.

Like many Euclidians, the Goodmans believe that residents will be a powerful force in moving Euclid forward, and they’re willing to do the work to get there.

Why are residents so invested? Because they know that there are two views of Euclid—the one from the inside and the one from the outside—and that the Euclid depicted in statistics doesn’t always reflect the experience of its people.

The total package: Amazon doubles down on hiring by bringing 2,000 jobs to Euclid

 

Anyone who’s driven up and down East 260th Street on a regular basis in the last year has watched a real-life time-lapse video of sorts as the former Euclid Square Mall site has steadily transformed into an Amazon fulfillment center.

 

Euclid’s director of planning and development Jonathan Holody has had a front-row seat. When he first started working for the city of Euclid seven years ago, “the mall was still standing, but it was not a functioning mall,” he says. “That was still the case when Mayor [Kirsten Holzheimer] Gail was elected. She and I both realized there was potential there.”

 

Indeed, as Euclid is now home to one of six fulfillment and sortation centers in Ohio (along with Etna, Monroe, North Randall, Obetz, and Twinsburg). The 650,000-square-foot facility has been fully operational since Sept. 8, following a hiring push in August for 2,000 jobs—twice the number initially estimated.

Greetings from Euclid: Take a sneak peek at Euclid's newest piece of public art

 

Drive through downtown Euclid on any sunny day, and you might catch artist Margaret Garbincus hard at work on the city’s newest piece of public art.

 

The eye-catching welcome sign, “Greetings from Euclid,” will be a mural in the shape of a postcard, depicting iconic scenes from her childhood memories. A lifelong resident of Euclid, Garbincus is celebrating her 50th birthday with this nostalgic public art project—and donating 300 hours of painting time to make it happen.

 

“I’m including my favorite memories of growing up in Euclid,” says Garbincus, “like the Euclid Public Library, Our Lady of the Lake, the [movie] theater, and Paul Serra Field.”

 

“I’m including my favorite memories of growing up in Euclid,” says Garbincus, “like the Euclid Public Library, Our Lady of the Lake, the [movie] theater, and Paul Serra Field.”

 

Though the mural was intended to be a labor of love, Garbincus was honored when the City of Euclid asked to purchase her mural design to produce postcards and other products for sale. Initially, the completion of the mural was slated to coincide with the Euclid Art Walk on Sept. 13, but weather and approval delays postponed the mural’s debut until 2020. As a preview, colorful postcards of her mural design were produced and distributed at the art walk event.

Two photos of the in-progress Euclid Lakefront Trail looking southeast from the Sims Park pier.  Given the scope of the project, it's impossible to get a panoramic view of the entire trail from the lake (the drone pics in KJP's 10/2/19 post, above, do a much better job).  But this is the trail as of Wednesday evening.  The bottom pic is directly east of the pier.  The erosion-killing rock line is impressive in person, especially for something so explicitly functional.  The grassy berm stretching upward isn't looking its best in late-October, but if the city waters it regularly during the summer, it will look just fine.  Also, you can't really make out the pedestrian trail from the lake, but trust me, it's there.  It's about a 3/4-mile asphalt trail that has been completed.  It's nothing special to look at, but will be fun to stroll upon when it's open (right now, it's barricaded off).

 

The top pic shows the eastern end of the trial, with the Lakeshore Blvd. high-rise apartment buildings (between E. 250th and 260th Streets) in the background.  That part is still being worked on, and looks great, even from a distance.  This is an exciting project for Euclid, as the trail is located in the criminally underrated Sims Park and is directly north of "downtown" Euclid (Lakeshore Cinemas, Great Scott Tavern, etc.)

With an RFP process in motion, Shore Cultural Centre is getting ready for its second act

 

When it comes to arts and culture in Euclid, all signs point to Shore Cultural Centre. Located in the heart of the city, the 141,000-square-foot building plays home to many art-based studios, faith-based organizations, and health and wellness businesses—along with the Euclid Symphony Orchestra, Euclid Hunger Center, and Euclid Culinary Bistro (operated by Euclid High School students).

 

Built in 1913, the complex has a long and storied history, landing the building on the National Register of Historic Places. For many decades, the building housed Shore High School (the northern counterpart to Central High School, Euclid’s other high school until Euclid High School was built in 1949 and both Shore and Central became middle schools). The Shore school ultimately shuttered in 1986, after which the building adopted its current use as a cultural hub.

 

Thirty-plus years later, Shore Cultural Centre is ripe for revitalization, as the city prepares to offer new investment opportunities to developers who can see its creative potential amid downtown Euclid’s robust development plans.

None yet. I imagine we will not get any until after the beginning of December.

Yeah, I think that very well could for part of it, but not the whole 140,000 square feet.

Something special: Downtown Euclid set to become region's next Special Improvement District

 

Picture a bustling strip packed with bars, restaurants, galleries, and boutiques. People can stroll down the street, grab a cocktail in one place, eat dinner in another, and then walk over to see a movie or the sunset over the lake. This isn’t Ohio City or Gordon Square, though—it’s downtown Euclid.

What's old is new again: 3 historic Euclid buildings that have found second life

 

A drive through the area between St. Clair Avenue and Euclid Avenue harkens back to Euclid's industrial heyday in the mid-20th-century—when over 140 firms lined its industrial corridor, including Reliance Electric Co. and the Fisher Body Division of General Motors.

Though few of those companies remain today, many of their former homes have taken on new life with thriving businesses and ventures—like the former Chase Brass & Copper Co. tube mill site that now houses the Amazon fulfillment center, or the former PMX factory that now houses Bluestone Business Park. More developments are likely to follow, thanks to the designation of five opportunity zones within Euclid in 2018.

Get an inside look at three historic industrial buildings that have found a robust 2.0 version in Euclid:

I wish that the CB&C neon sign could have been saved. 

 

Very impressive on a young lad in the back seat of a '60 Chevy wagon barreling down I 90 at 80 mph.

 

That Chase Brass sign may be at their current plant, just ESE of the Ohio-Indiana-TSUN triple point.

 

We buy metal from them, they’re still going.

 

I do think the mayor should call the state of the city speech “Here’s Looking At Euclid”.

Seeds & Sprouts VII - Early intel on real estate projects

 

Euclid shoreline improvements continue

Public bidding has commenced for the construction of additional Phase 2 features of the City of Euclid's shoreline improvement project to create a lakefront trail and erosion control along Lake Erie. The project is proving so popular and visionary that Cuyahoga County and other cities want to emulate the project across 30 miles of the entire county's shoreline.

Bids are due to be submitted to the city by June 15 for phase 2 improvements estimated at about $749,999, according to the city. But other elements bring the total cost of this phase to about $5 million. The project will extend the trail and erosion control, including a new beach, 0.25-mile eastward to north of the Harbor Crest Apartments and create a park between the Harbor Crest and Normandy Towers Apartments.

Creating access to the shore will be very catalytic for Euclid and the region. When a community realizes that an amazing resource in their backyard is truly theirs to enjoy and share, it’s a powerful  reminder of how smart, creative civic collaboration can profoundly transform the quality of life for everyone.  Congratulations to the stakeholders in Euclid that, by being smart and collaborative have activated a win-win scenario that will benefit many for years to come. Neighborhood by neighborhood, town by town, we can create a “Greater Cleveland”.
