Gun violence and violent crime is on the rise. This holiday weekend specifically, the city of Cleveland has seen a large number of incidents involving shootings and tragically, three people killed. There is no excuse for this violent activity and police are actively pursuing the perpetrators. We remind citizens to do their part. If you see something, say something. Anyone with crime tips is asked to call police. Anonymous information can be provided via Crime Stoppers by calling 216-25-CRIME.

In order to better serve restaurants and their patrons during the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Cleveland has established guidelines and regulations for permitted businesses to use private parking lots, streets and on-street parking areas as outdoor restaurant spaces as part of Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s ReStart CLE plan. This legislation provides restaurants with additional dining space that allows them to safely operate.

During the week of May 26, 2020, the City will begin sidewalk repairs as part of its 2020 Tree Damaged Sidewalk Program on various streets throughout the City. Traffic and pedestrian access may be temporarily restricted or delayed due to the contractor’s operations. Two-way traffic will be maintained. Pedestrian traffic may be limited to one side of the street. Motorists should be alert for traffic signage and flaggers used to direct traffic at the tree damaged sidewalk repair work locations. Pedestrians will need to be alert for advanced warning signage for closed sidewalks at the work locations.

This project repairs sidewalk locations on various City streets which have been damaged by tree roots and are limited to streets which have been recently resurfaced through the City’s Residential Resurfacing Program. The improvement includes sidewalk removal and replacement, root pruning or the removal of trees if necessary.  If a tree is removed, a new one will be planted. There is no charge, to the resident, for this work.

For questions, contact the City’s Sidewalk Bureau at (216) 664-2474.

The 2020 Holiday Waste Pick-up Schedule, which includes information on Bulk Pick-Up, is now available.

Thanks to Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s enhanced budget, made possible by Issue 32, the City of Cleveland is embarking on more street improvement projects in 2017 than in years past. Projects span all neighborhoods and wards throughout the city.

Until further notice, Environmental Review Records (ERRs) available for public comment for the release of HOME and CDBG funds under Section 212(a)(1) of Title II (42 U.S.C. 12701 et seq.) of the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act can no longer be viewed in person.

In summer 2019, the city of Cleveland’s Office of Community Development and the Equitable Community Development Working Group engaged with Reinvestment Fund, PFM, Greater Ohio Policy Center, Neighborhood Connections and Leverage Point Development, to study the City’s residential tax abatement program. The study was commissioned to better understand the historic usage of the program, the value it generated for the City, and to identify potential adjustments to the program that would help the City advance an Equitable Community Development Strategy as part of Mayor Jackson’s Neighborhood Transformation Initiative.

In accordance with requirements of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the City of Cleveland has drafted the 2020-2021 Program Year Action Plan. The Action Plan, which will be available for public comment and review on March 20, 2020, is a comprehensive strategy that describes activities and programs that will be implemented during the 2020-2021 program year to address priority needs and specific objectives identified in the 2016-2020 Consolidated Plan for your review. The Action Plan also serves as an application for Federal funds.

The status of complaints filed by citizens with the Office of Professional Standards can now be viewed online.  A valid OPS case number is required.

The City of Cleveland is hiring! Many positions have been added thanks to Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s enhanced budget resulting from the passage of Issue 32.
