Cedar Fairmount introduces parking changes
In conjunction with The Fairmount Wine Bar and Barrio restaurant, ASV Services, a valet provider, has established valet parking in the Cedar Fairmount district on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, 4–9 p.m. This convenience will be available to those who wish to visit any of Cedar Fairmount businesses and don’t want to park themselves.
A drop-off and pick-up station is locaged outside the Heights Medical Building at 2460 Fairmount Blvd.
Each weekend through October, on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, the city of Cleveland Heights has granted free parking in the Cedar Fairmount District, wherever there are parking meters—in the public garage, parking lots and at street meters.
Currently, East Ohio Gas is replacing Cedar Fairmount Business District gas lines, dating back to the 1800s. This work, which has commenced, will take about two months. At this time sidewalks are not disrupted, and access to stores and other district businesses is unobstructed.
After the gas lines are replaced, the Cedar Fairmount Special Improvement District's $1.5 million streetscape renovation plan will get underway. The plans include new curbs and sidewalks, which will be expanded in some areas, removal of electric poles not in use, new benches, bike racks, trash cans, trees, and more.
