Ohio Box Board Building

Bill and Harriet Gould have been Cleveland's Design District, long before it became recognized by the powers that be. And, sure enough, once the powers recognized it, they decided to destroy it. And, so it goes...meanwhile here in Brooklyn Centre, it appears that Wirth House has won a reprieve. The jury is still out on the new  director and board at Art House, but, so far, it appears hopeful. BTW, as my friend Susan Miller reminds me, what will be the fate of the Ohio Box Board Building and Zygote Press operation?

Downpayment Assistance Program

Is the City of Cleveland excluded from the Cuyahoga County downpayment assistance program?

If there is a similar program available to potential homebuyers interested in living in Cleveland--please let us know.

Funding living spaces for artists

  John Spotts from the Cuyahoga County Department of Development got back to me very promptly and confirmed what I suspected: municipalities outside Cleveland in Cuyahoga County pool their FHA monies received to provide the downpayment assistance program, because individually they would not qualify for as much money.  The City of Cleveland qualifies for its own pool of money.  The next question would be--does Cleveland offer a similar program?  If not--then how is this money being used and allocated (or misallocated*)?


Although, I am fairly sure of the answer to this one based on this query.  Why does a family of six pay $1,300 in rent for a house, when they should be applying this to a mortgage?  BTW, this family doesn't fall under the typical racial categories.  They are Palestinian.  So, can we dispense with racial categories?
