Retain Fairfax property for community uses

To the Editor:

I am following the proposed reorganization of the schools in Cleveland Heights, and am interested in the possible destiny of the property occupied by Fairfax Elementary School, which will be closed [under the school facilities plan]. I think this property should be retained by the city for community use. I would recommend it be repurposed for multiple uses including a community garden (existing use), as well as a park that would include both a playground for children and a dog park. The only dog park I know of here in Cleveland Heights is on Monticello Boulevard near Green Road. I think a dog park at Fairfax would be well used.
