Message from the Mayor

Progress continues to happen in Euclid!  I know the construction and repairs can be frustrating, but it is a sign of growth in Euclid.  I continue to be amazed at Amazon rising at the former Euclid Square Mall site.  The weekly reports received indicate that the exterior structure is nearly complete and soon they will begin working on the conveyance system and interior work needed – still on time for a March completion.  We hosted nearly 50 area commercial real estate brokers at the Amazon facility to learn about the opportunities for growth and development in Euclid. 

Additionally, BWXT has announced a major expansion and re-investment in their building - $50 million in capital and equipment plus additional jobs.  Lincoln Electric continues to beautify their corridor with new decorative fencing planned along the new Technology Training Center.  O’Reilly Auto parts is completing the shell of their building on E. 200 Street.  City Council has before it a proposal for the purchase and development of the former Chevy site on E. 185th Street for a new medical facility.  And of course, the work has begun on the Lakefront Improvement Project. 

Have you seen Memorial Park lately?  The tennis courts are complete with the addition of 2 Pickleball Courts.  The basketball courts have been re-surfaced and re-sealed.  Serra Field renovations are almost complete.  The Schools have begun the work on the paths throughout Memorial Park. 

Despite the progress, there remains more to do and limited resources.  While we continue to face challenges, I know that we are making progress, we are making an impact, and we are making Euclid a better and stronger community.  I am grateful for the residents who are involved and engaged in these efforts and look forward to continued improvement.

Please exercise your civic responsibility to vote on November 6th or vote early by mail.  I ask for your thoughtful consideration on the local ballot issues.  No one wants to pay more tax, but taking care of our community is all of our responsibility.  Regarding Issue 31, our ability to repair streets is severely limited without dedicated resources to do so.   I encourage you to take time to understand not only our local issues, but also the candidates running.  The decisions made at the State and Federal level impact us and are critically important. 

As always, thanks for caring about our community! 

Mayor Kirsten Holzheimer Gail
