On Wednesday, May 6th from 5 to 8 PM, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport will hold a neighborhood meeting at Clara E. Westropp School, 19101 Puritas Avenue. Changes to Federal Aviation Administration procedures at Hopkins have resulted in increased flights and changing flight patterns over the West Park area. Residents are encouraged to attend this event to discuss the changes with airport officials. Another meeting on the topic will be held Thursday, May 7th, from 5 to 8 PM at Olmsted Falls High School.


West Park youth and those who care about them are invited to meet on May 5th to help shape a strategic plan for West Park youth development that covers children from kindergarten through high school. Participants will see the plan being formulated by Bellaire-Puritas Development with the support of KCDC through MyCom, an initiative funded by the Cleveland Foundation and other organizations. MyCom stands for My Community, and the goal is to involve youth in their community through after-school, weekend, and summer programs. Interested? The meeting takes place from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at the Puritas Lutheran Church, 13812 Bellaire Road. Arrive a little early to enjoy pre-meeting entertainment, food, and a chance to win a jersey worn by Anderson Varejao of the Cleveland Cavaliers! If you have questions, please call 216-671-2710.

Kamm's Corners Streetscape

Construction of the Lorain Avenue Streetscape Improvement Project continues. Please sure to visit all of our merchants in Kamm's. Yes, they are open for business, and they need YOUR patronage! Parking is tricky, but with a few extra steps, you can get there. Your friends on the North side of Lorain at Jasmine's Bakery, Price's Pub, BJ's Diamond Mine, Starship Earth, Profitness, Kamm's Corners Chiropractic, and Global Technical Recruiters await your visit. Let's do our best to spend a few dollars there to insure that they will be there for us when the construction ends.
