FutureHeights supports Cedar Lee development
To the Editor:
The following statement was presented to Cleveland Heights City Council at its Aug. 2 meeting:
FutureHeights supports the proposed mixed-use development at the Cedar Lee Meadowbrook site and urges Council to move forward with the project.
- The proposed project fills a large gap in the Cedar Lee Business District by strengthening the “retail/building wall,” which will increase pedestrian foot traffic and consumer spending at our locally owned businesses.
- New housing will add more residents to increase our tax base.
- The proposed green space at Lee and Meadowbrook and the Cedar Lee Mini-Park will enhance the district and meet residents’ needs for green space.
Developing this site has been an objective of the city for over a decade. A qualified developer has stepped forward to work with the city to make this happen. Let’s keep this process in motion.
