Message from the Mayor
Greetings Euclid! I hope you are staying healthy and well! We are now almost 6 months into the COVID19 pandemic and life as we know it has changed in many ways. I know it is not always easy and we would all like to get back to school, work, and socializing as we did before. It is so important that we all continue to do our part to stop the spread and keep our economy open!
Face masks are now mandatory across the State. Thank you Euclid for doing your part! I want to thank Destination Cleveland for providing the City of Euclid with “Clean Kits” – a small pack that includes a mask, Purell Samples and a card outlining safe practices to help us get through this pandemic. The Euclid Police Department has been handing these kits out to residents without a mask and have kits available for those who need it. Need a mask? Stop in to the Police Department lobby and pick one up!
While City Hall remains closed to the public, we continue to provide service and assistance online, over the phone, and in other ways. We are making the necessary improvements to be able to open City Hall to the public in a safe manner. We are also working to improve our technology and ability to provide service and conduct businesses virtually.
The City of Euclid has allocated funding made available through the CARES Act to help our residents and businesses. There is rent assistance available through CHN Partners and small business assistance through Cleveland Neighborhood Progress. See the full article in the Observer for details or www.cityofeuclid.com for more information on these programs and other resources available.
We took an exciting next step in the Waterfront progress. Thank you to City Council who authorized the next phase of the waterfront trail to begin this fall. The work will continue further east extending the trail to the City owned parcels at E. 248th street. With the first phase of the trail complete, many residents and visitors have been enjoying our beautiful Lake Erie shoreline. It is truly something in which we all should be proud!
Welcome to Pulp Juice and Smoothie Bar and congratulations to Euclid resident Barry Young on his successful small business! We are fortunate to have a number of local businesses owned or run by Euclid residents. They depend on our support and have worked hard to make sure their businesses are COVID safe and ready to serve us. Please shop local and let’s all do our part to make them successful!
Take care and stay well!
