Bike Sharing Programs - CLE, CIN, COL - who has the BEST?

Cleveland recently added a bike sharing program - almost entirely for Ohio City residents.  It's called Zagster.com  (Zagster.com/Cleveland)

Restoring HOPE

Submitted by lmcshane on Wed, 10/01/2014 - 09:07.

Joan Southgate is an amazing woman and Cleveland is lucky to have her.  Thanks to the efforts of Restore Hope - Cozad House in University Circle has been saved as a reminder of our pre-Civil War history.  A touchstone for generations, preserved to help us see life as it was in 1800s Cleveland.

Historic Bank Building in Old Brooklyn being stripped for Marble

Submitted by lmcshane on Mon, 07/14/2014 - 10:32.

 

I walked by the historic bank building at corner of Pearl and Broadview today - looking in the window - it appears that the building is being systematically stripped of the marble wall trim.  The interior is very reminescent of the United Bank Building - which was renovated to house Crop restaurant.   The building is listed with CBRE commercial real estate.  http://www.cbre.com/EN/findproperty/Pages/default.aspx

Inspiring Civic Engagement - Alonzo Mitchell turns 33

Submitted by lmcshane on Tue, 05/20/2014 - 13:53.

 Alonzo Mitchell III is an amazing young-ish man.  He looks younger than his 33 years and he is the catalyst for a ground swell of positive energy in CLE.  Without foundations, without powerful connections - Alonzo Mitchell III returned to Cleveland with enthusiasm and pride in his hometown.  He translated this energy into the marketing juggernaut Ohio Homecoming.

Drive to Broaden OPINION content at Plain Dealer

Submitted by lmcshane on Mon, 09/16/2013 - 09:12.

 I have posted this content to Citizen Dashboard category - in the Sunday Plain Dealer, editor Elizabeth Sullivan wants you to know that through the Northeast Ohio Media Group and the Plain Dealer and Cleveland.com (if you understand that evolution) - you have a greater opportunity to voice your opinion.

Are you happy to see the Clark Ave treatment for West 25th??? I am not happy - it sucks.  This is what passes for "development" in NEO:

Ward 14 - dirty politics in NEO

Submitted by lmcshane on Thu, 07/04/2013 - 09:37.

The media is largely ignoring the simmering council race in Ward 14 - focused on Eugene Miller and Jeff Johnson - another power play with Sweeney written all over it.  

But, the story on near west side is far more volatile with a history worth revisiting.  

See the historic editorials by Nelson Cintron and, at the time, Miriam Ortiz-Maldonado.

Please help prevent disinvestment in Brooklyn Centre-Save ALDIs and Wirth House

Please help hold city officials accountable and stop disinvestment of services in Brooklyn Centre:

http://www.change.org/petitions/stop-aldi-move-to-steelyard-and-stop-pus...

There is gross misuse of federal funds.  City of Cleveland provides incentives to corporate interests and developers but does not help communities retain services and allows use of federal monies to destroy historical fabric of a neighborhood.

The Contradictions of Fair Hope highlights a long-forgotten and fascinating aspect of American history when newly freed slaves responded to the shock of Emancipation by forming “self-help” organizations called benevolent societies to help ease the transition from slavery to freedom.
