News Around Our Neighborhood!
The February 12th meeting of the E 185th Neighborhood Association was full of news and information for our community.
Councilman Polensek led off, with updates about several ongoing concerns & projects. First was that the redevelopment of Longfellow School into senior housing, is on track. He had more on the upcoming E 185th street project, as well. And, he also was able to tell us that the Mr Cars case was coming up in March. (And - the new O H Perry is now open!)
The meeting continued with our local Fifth District Community Engagement Officers updating members on recent crime in our neighborhood, and taking questions to follow up with.
Our February speaker was Caroline Peak (our Co-Chair) filling us in on things happening with the local Cleveland Public Library. Among good news from the Library, is that the Collinwood Branch is now open again. Cleveland Public Library is also celebrating their 150th Anniversary this year, and kicking off these celebrations, with Cleveland Public Library Executive Director & CEO Felton Thomas addressing the City Club of Cleveland on February 27th.
Ms Peak, as President of Northeast Shores Development Corp, then went on to update the group on the current Northeast Shores situation.
Mr Greg Pollard was there as well, adding to the Community Engagement Officers' reports. He also announced the Fifth District's Community Relations Committee Meetings kick off Wednesday March 20th, at the Five Points Community Center; these meetings will then be every 3rd Wednesday after this.
