Cleveland Celebrates the Grand Re-Opening of the New Community Place Apartments

Mayor Frank G. Jackson gave brief remarks at the ribbon cutting for the grand re-opening ceremony of the New Community Place Apartments located on Woodland Avenue in Cleveland. The former vintage Community Apartments, built in 1956, were transformed into sustainable healthy, safe and functional townhouses for families living in Ward 5 neighborhood.

The agreement marks a new way of policing, one built on a strong foundation of progressive change, sustained trust, and accountability. It is a reflection of ideas from people and groups across the community – including residents, civil rights organizations, activists, clergy, student groups, business and philanthropic organizations and elected officials, as well as the police unions and the Division of Police.
