Message from the Mayor
This past month, we had the opportunity to showcase Euclid to a number of visiting groups. I was proud to be able to share what is happening in Euclid and brag about our community assets, new investment, and the progress we are making.
The Akron Cleveland Board of Realtors held a special workshop at the beautiful historic Henn Mansion where realtors from across the region came to learn about Euclid and all it has to offer. I was able to spotlight Euclid – the progress, investment being made, and special programs available. The group was impressed with what we have to offer and the progress we are making and now armed with additional information to help sell Euclid!
Euclid was featured at the American Planning Association’s Cleveland Planning and Zoning Conference through a mobile workshop at the Henn Mansion focusing on Euclid’s lakefront revitalization project. The program included a visit to the Henn Mansion, the Joseph Farrell Memorial Fishing Pier, and Sims Park with a virtual reality simulation of future phases of Euclid’s waterfront improvements. The group was amazed with the progress to date on our lakefront and the plans for Phase 2 and beyond.
Euclid hosted the First Suburbs Consortium at Shore Cultural Centre where representatives including Mayors and Development staff from the first ring suburbs and partner organizations met to discuss mutual issues and plans to address them. I had the chance to talk about our success in economic development and community improvements.
The Euclid Recreation Department hosted the Youth Tackle Football Playoffs and Championships over 2 weekends at the newly renovated DiBiasio Stadium where players, cheerleaders and their families from Shaker, Painesville, East Cleveland, Elyria, Garfield Heights, Cleveland, Akron and Lorain were able to see the new facilities and investment underway in Memorial Park and our Euclid Schools.
There is much we have to be proud of and being able to share this with non-Euclid folks helps to reinforce that we have wonderful assets, we are making great progress, and we have a great deal for which to be thankful. The response across the board was they were highly impressed!
As we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, I want to say thank you to all who contribute to improving and growing our community. I am truly grateful for the people and organizations that I have had the pleasure to work with over the past year and who continue to make Euclid a place we all can be proud to live, work and visit.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families!
