Taylor Road resident files complaint with the city
Taylor Road resident Douglas Whipple has filed a complaint with the city regarding the repaving of Taylor Road near Severance Circle. The project would narrow the roadway and reallocate some of the space to other uses.
Whipple said that residents had recommended allocating some of the new space for wider tree lawns and pedestrian access on the residential west side of the road, but that the city later changed the plan to add the land exclusively to the commercial east side of the road. In his complaint, Whipple alleges that the city intentionally rejected public input and failed to notify residents of its decision.
Here is a link to past stories the Observer has run on the issue:
Here is a copy of the complaint that Whipple proactively provided to the Observer.
An informational meeeting is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 17 at 7 p.m., at Cleveland Heights City Hall. In attendance will be Councilmember Bonnie Caplan and representatives from ODOT and Perk Construction. For more information, contact the city's community relations department at 216-291-2323.
