The Streetscape Improvement Project continues to move along! Soon all overhead power lines and associated poles will be replaced by decorative street lighting and the planter boxes will be filled with trees and plants.

See design details in on our website.

And, if you know of retailers looking for a shiny new location, please ask them to consider Kamm's Corners and call Cindy Janis at 216-252-6559, ext 1200. This is prime time to be part of the renaissance!

If you are affected, a notification card will be mailed to you. Please visit their website for more information.


Are you facing or at risk of foreclosure? Do you have an adjustable rate mortgage? The Cuyahoga County Foreclosure Prevention Program was created by the County Commissioners and County Treasurer Jim Rokakis in the spring of 2006 to assist residents of the county who were having trouble with or had questions about their home loans. The program, which has become a model for other programs like it nationwide, connects borrower in distress with a local non-profit counseling agency (such as Neighborhood Housing Services among others) through the United Way's First Call for Help line. All Cuyahoga County borrowers need to do is dial 2-1-1 (or 216-436-2000) and they will be connected to a free counselor.
