The Heights Observer is an efficient way to reach your core local audience and strengthen your customer base. 

The Heights Observer is volunteer-based, with all content written, submitted and edited by members of the community. A community-building project of non-profit FutureHeights, its goals are to:
  • Encourage citizen engagement
  • Foster dialogue about issues that are important to the community
  • Create an environment that's mindful and supportive of the independent businesses that serve Cleveland Heights and University Heights

All proceeds from publishing are returned to the community in the form of programming by FutureHeights. So advertising is not only good for your business, its a good deed.
