Message from the Mayor
Happy New Year to all! 2020 starts a new decade, brings the US Census, a Presidential election, a leap year and hopefully continued growth and progress for the City of Euclid!
I would first like to thank outgoing City Council members, Ward 3 Councilwoman Taneika Hill and Ward 7 Councilman Daryl Langman for their service to the City. Both worked hard to improve their wards and the City as a whole. On behalf of the City, I would like to thank them for their dedication, commitment and positive impact on Euclid! I would also like to welcome two new City Council members – Ward 3 Councilman Marcus Epps and Ward 7 Councilwoman Maria Jukic. I look forward to working with all of City Council to continue to progress and growth of our community!
2020 brings the US Census – you will be hearing more about this over the next few months. It is critical for the City that everyone is counted! The Census data impacts how $675 billion are spent supporting state, county and community’s vital programs. This year you will be able to respond on-line, over the phone, by mail or in person. It is safe, secure, and confidential! I want to thank the Euclid Public Library for taking a lead in making sure we have a complete count! Look for more information over the next few months and please do your part to make sure everyone in Euclid is counted!
As we start a new year, I also want to acknowledge the hard work of so many over the last year. We have seen some great progress with: Amazon opening in September, 2 new buildings under construction at Bluestone Business Park; New businesses coming to Euclid and many expansions of existing businesses; Record number of residential and commercial permits – showing new investment; Opening of the Euclid School Early Learning Village and construction underway of new High School/ Middle School; Construction on Waterfront Trail and public access transforming our lakefront; New summer youth camp; Re-construction of East 222nd Street; and so much more! We will continue to work hard every day to continue the progress and growth!
I want to thank all the City staff who work hard every day to provide important services to you – they demonstrate a true commitment to serving our residents and improving our community! I also want to thank and acknowledge the many partners – businesses, community organizations, faith communities, neighborhood groups and residents who also give so much to help make our community a strong, vibrant community we all can be proud to live, work and visit.
I look forward to seeing you, hearing from you and working with you in the New Year! Happy New Year!
