Amazon Fulfillment Center Coming to Euclid

Amazon has announced it will build a new 650,000 square foot fulfillment center at the former Euclid Square Mall site bringing 1000 new jobs.  The City of Euclid has been working with Seefried Industrial Properties, Amazon and many regional economic development partners since March to make this project happen.  “We are thrilled to welcome Amazon and Seefried Industrial Properties to the City of Euclid,” said City of Euclid Mayor Kirsten Holzheimer Gail. “The Euclid Square Mall site has been a prime target of our redevelopment efforts.  While some saw a vacant mall, we saw an opportunity for growth and development. This project is a fantastic addition to the investment we are seeing in our industrial corridor and will provide valuable employment opportunities for our residents.” 

This project would not have happened without the leadership, professionalism and tenacity of Planning and Development Director Jonathan Holody and the whole team of Directors and staff who contributed in many important ways.  It was a true team effort as the City worked with local and regional economic development partners including Greater Cleveland Partnership, Team NEO, Jobs Ohio, Cuyahoga County, the Ohio Department of Transportation, and Euclid City Council to make this transformative project a reality.  Euclid City Council approved the rezoning of the property from retail to industrial to allow for this development.

All Eyes on the LaSalle Arts and Media Center

We know everyone has been wondering how progress is going on the renovation of the historic LaSalle Theater on E. 185th, so we want to give you an update. After finding some unexpected extra construction costs, Northeast Shores Development Corporation had to regroup and seek additional funding to close the construction gap. We are happy to report that the LaSalle restoration is back on track and scheduled to be completed by the end of the year, so you should see a lot of workers and transformation happening on the site. Next year, NE Shores and members of the board are going to have to mount a capital campaign to add the finishing touches, but we are on track to get this important anchor restored so the facility can be used and enjoyed by the broad community.

The proposed central tenant of the project is still Taste of Excellence catering, who will be using the theater for weddings and other events when their clients need a large seated venue. With this is mind, the old movie house is being structurally changed inside, converted from a raked floor to a series of level platforms and the old narrow stage is being extended to accommodate a head table or presentation.  When the building is complete, there will also be restored storefronts in the front of the building for small businesses to rent and remodeled 5, 1-2 bedroom, apartments upstairs.  Stay tuned for a 2018 celebration.

A Spiritual Journey to Wholeness

A question asked is an opportunity for greater awareness.  Greater awareness is an opportunity for positive life changes that bring about balance in mind, body and spirit  connectedness.   If you are feeling tired, have a lack of energy, it's best to identify how you are treating your body.  Are you eating dead food, food that has been overcooked or lacks nutritional value.   Also, look at emotional drains that can create weariness.  Learn what you can do,  like practice deep breathing and meditation, when family or work issues seem to be out of control with no easy solution.  Quieting your mind and body gives time to "listen" to your inner guidance and be in Oneness with a higher power within you.  Be in relationship with yourself.  JOY,  is the journey of you.  Give yourself the gift of going within to discover your true self.  Ask the questions that create positive changes in your life experiences to create joy.  Join others at the Rishis Institute of Metaphysics, 21933 Euclid Avenue for weekly practice on proper breathing and meditation guidance.  One hour metaphysics teachings are held on Monday and Tuesday evenings on a donation basis.  On Tuesday evenings, a Oneness course at 7:00 pm is offered.  Call 216 486 7240

Good On A mission with A Spades Tournament

The moment of fulfillment is created from understanding the connection to a people, planet, purpose, profit philosophy. My name is Felicia Peacock and I am the owner/ CEO of Decisive Advocates. Decisive Advocates was created on this philosophy. We are advocates for individuals who want to make decisive decisions in their life, business, and world. Even though our specialty at Decisive Advocates covers dental advising, project management, corporate wellness, flourishing enterprise corporate restructure and CPR certification; our focus is to remain a hometown brand and make sure we are making an impact in our community. From this point of community involvement, it spawned a very interesting concept within our Success of failure movement. I wanted to help individuals with the success of failure movement and events by giving tools to overcome obstacles in life. This movement focuses on community information sharing and activities to bring people together in unity. I thought to myself, that the people, planet, purpose, profit philosophy with the success of failure movement should be embedded in our community as a resource for mindful development and networking. Decisive Advocates will always be on a mission to fulfil these values.

As a frequent visitor to the shores of Lake Erie, Euclid resident Karen Steigerwald found a unique outlet for expressing her frustration with the amount of trash that ends up on the beach.  Over the course of the summer she and members of her neighborhood association, The Brookwood Club, collected washed up garbage from the shoreline.  From small chunks of plastic to cigarette filters to lighters and even toys, Steigerwald used the materials to create an art project for her neighborhood.

Bob’s Corner

He had just lost the love of his life, and he came to the Center because he didn’t want to be alone. His feelings and emotions were raw. They went from relief that the suffering was over, to anger and a horrible feeling of emptiness. Twenty-six years together is a long time.

During that time, they had shared everything in life. Good times, and bad. Happy and sad. It has been said that everyone needs a witness to their life and his had died, just this morning.

We talked about the belief that birth and death are opposites, but there is no opposite to life. We talked about life going on, but in a different form that we cannot see. We spoke about the gift that life together had been, and how it is better that the suffering is now over.
