September greetings! Thank you for wearing your masks, maintaining social distance and taking necessary precautions to stop the spread of COVID19! Because of your diligence Ohio has moved from the red COVID warning level to the orange warning level. This does not mean we stop taking precautions, but it does mean we are moving in the right direction! Keep it up!
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE INFORMATION SHEET
Children should never be left unattended in an automobile. Hot and humid days make it even deadlier for children or pets left inside a closed-up vehicle. Always lock your car doors after parking at home so children outside playing cannot get into your automobile by themselves
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!

80% of Euclid's stolen automobiles so far this year may have been prevented through simple crime prevention! 26 vehicles were left running and unattended. 32 sets of keys were left in the console, glove box, ignition or other available spot. EPD knows our Facebook friends use crime prevention measures, but help us get the message out! Always turn of the ignition, remove all keys from the vehicle, and lock the doors. This must be done every time you leave your vehicle - at the gas station pump, to unload groceries, and even when parking in a driveway!

can make informed decisions based on current budgetary status of the City.
Euclid City Council feels it is in the City’s best long-term interests to consistently work toward

Plan. (February 2018) Council will continue to encourage development of projects that are
beneficial to our city’s growth.

Creating and maintaining strong communities involve many factors – at the very core is the way we treat one another. It is essential that all residents are respected, valued and included. I joined Euclid City Council in declaring racism a public health crisis at the June 15th City Council meeting. As a community, it is vital that we all take a stand against racism, work every day to gain greater understanding of each other, and work for equity and inclusion for all. Please join us!

This year is the 2nd year of the Euclid Hometown Hero Banner program. These banners are displayed along E. 222nd Street from Memorial Day through Veterans Day to recognize and honor our Veterans and active service men and women for their service to our country. This year there are many new banners including banners for Euclid Employees who have served in the armed forces. The City of Euclid and Keep Euclid Beautiful wanted to recognize the Euclid employees who served our country with a banner. Please look for the banners that say “City of Euclid Honors All our Employee Veterans” and join us in thanking our Employee Veterans for their service to our country and to our community! As always we thank and honor all the men and women who have served our country! Thank you for your service!
In late 2019, the City of Euclid’s Department of Planning and Development was successful in securing a grant in the amount of $47,500.00 from the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission’s Urban Tree Canopy Grant Program. This grant allowed the city to remove over 45 dead or dying ash trees infested with emerald ash borer, and prune of 370 small diameter trees located in public right-of-ways. To meet the grants required match, the city planted new trees as a part our annual spring tree planting program. This is an ongoing project and this year over 150 new trees have been planted. The Department of Planning and Development would like to acknowledge the efforts and assistance of the Mayor’s Office, the Shade Tree Commission, City Arborists Andre Trapp and Chris Grant, and Park Manager Joe O’Donnell for helping us keep Euclid a leader in sustainability, greenspace improvements and urban forestry.
The Euclid School Board rejected the request for a 30 year Tax Increment Financing (TIF) plan to support the proposed Celebration Village at Providence Park. The 4-0 vote effectively puts the project on hold as any progress forward is dependent on the approval of the School Board due to the financing plan (TIF) proposed by the developer, Active Senior Concepts.
Now, more than ever, I understand the importance of community. During this Stay at Home order we’re going through and the social distancing we’re observing together, I have missed you! I miss seeing my family, my neighbors, co-workers, Council members, the seniors at the senior center, my friends and all of you!
Due to the Coronavirus and Governor’s directives, we have had to make the very difficult decision to cancel the Euclid Memorial Day parade and ceremonies. This year would have been Euclid Joint Veterans Council 90th Memorial Day Parade. While we are not able to gather together, we will continue the tradition of honoring those who died in service to our country in a meaningful way.
The Euclid Veterans Memorial sits on E. 222nd Street between Euclid City Hall and the Euclid Public Library. The Memorial was designed by Frank Kosich Sr. and was dedicated on November 11, 1953 with an inscription that reads:
The men and women of the Euclid Police Department work hard every day to ensure the safety and security of the city. That isn’t going to change as we are faced with the challenges of Covid-19.

Effective immediately, we are implementing the following steps for the safety and security of our community and department to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The proposed Celebration Village at Providence Park made it past its first hurdle as Euclid City Council approved an amendment to a consent judgment by a 6-3 vote. That first vote was needed due to complications associated with the 68 acre property that is currently owned by Providence Baptist Church. Providence is looking to sell it to a Georgia-based developer that will then create a development targeted to age 55+ residents.

March greetings from the Mayor! As I shared in my State of the City, I am extremely proud to serve as your Mayor and tremendously proud of the progress we are making as a community. A huge thank you to all who contribute every day to making our community stronger – we could not have accomplished so much without the support, involvement, and encouragement of so many community members and partners!
February greetings to all!

Snow and ice can make driving extremely dangerous during the winter months, so making safer choices before and during driving can help prevent an emergency situation.
Another year in the books and another new record for annual responses. Be safe and healthy in 2020. We'd be happy with a lower number of calls.
