SAG re-forms as independent citizens' group

FutureHeights is honored to announce the formation of the Severance Action Group (SAG) as a newly independent citizens’ group dedicated to advocating for the redevelopment of the Severance mall property.  

In January 2020, SAG formed as a subcommittee of the FutureHeights Planning and Development Committee.  

Since that time, SAG has sought to take a more active role in the community, to directly engage with citizens to put forward strategies to develop the property into an area that would better serve residents and be sustainable for decades to come.

FutureHeights and SAG members believe the group will have more flexibility to grow and to engage citizens as an independent organization promoting the development of the Severance property into a viable destination to be enjoyed by all residents.

FutureHeights agrees the Severance mall property is a great opportunity for the community and believes that citizens ought to have a voice in protecting and redeveloping the area.  

FutureHeights will assist SAG during its transition to become an independent group, and will continue to offer guidance and support as it does for other neighborhood and community groups serving Cleveland Heights.
