the project

Through the interaction and collaboration of its residents and the City of East Cleveland we have been able to form a cohesive group and become a 501(c)3 organization. Our mission is to identify, define, prioritize, and fund projects that restore and beautify the East Cleveland portion of the historic Forest Hill neighborhood. Our vision is a revitalized East Cleveland Forest Hill neighborhood - an energetic, informed, and open community where residents have an active voice in achieving shared goals and objectives that advance East Cleveland Forest Hill not only as a historically significant community, but as a welcoming inclusive place to call home.

the steps

Our team (ECFHNA) has and will continue to volunteer to make this project a reality.  We have begun by meeting with representatives from the Forest Hill Park, which align our community as well as the City of East Cleveland. We have prepared a detailed cost analysis and met with contractors. September: We will begin our walking campaign to each resident, talking with them, leaving information about ECFHNA and asking for monetary pledges.  Holding Bi-Weekly meeting to inform the residents of our progress and to seek donations for this project.   October & November: Meet with selected contractor's, City of East Cleveland, and the Electrical Company to confirm cost and contingencies. Meet with City of East Cleveland to determine a financial committment for the project.  Initiate Phase 1 of installing 6 signs and post ($7000.00). December- February: Assess our project, revisit our budget, plan for Phase 2 in March.

 

why we're doing it

For well over a year East Cleveland Forest Hill residents met bi-monthly to determine what pro-active measures they could take to improve their neighborhood. A neighborhood that had endured years of neglect. An historical neighborhood that made a significant contribution to the City of East Cleveland but was unable to receive any benefits due to the major challenges East Cleveland was facing in other neighborhoods of the city.  ECFHNA felt that improvements within the Forest Hill neighborhood could improve and impact East Cleveland in a positive way.  Our vision is a revitalized East Cleveland Forest Hill neighborhood - an - energetic, informed, and open community where residents have an active voice in achieving shared goals and objectives that advance East Cleveland not only asa historically significant community,but as a welcoming inclusive place to call home.
