Cleveland Road Work News: July 31, 2017

road work ahead

Thanks to Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s enhanced budget, made possible by Issue 32, the City of Cleveland is embarking on more street improvement projects in 2017 than years past. Projects span all neighborhoods and wards throughout the city.

Here are some highlights about this year’s road work:

  • Street resurfacing began on April 27, 2017 and will continue through the summer, weather permitting. The first resurfacing project took place in Ward 4 on Parkview Avenue near the intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.
  • Potholes are serviced year round, weather permitting. The Department of Public Works has increased its pothole crews from three to 10 as a result of the passage of Issue 32.
  • This year, with the completion of the Pavement Management Study we have a graded system that allows us to select the streets that are in the greatest need of resurfacing. We are using the worst first approach to road resurfacing.
  • We are projecting to resurface 95 streets this year.
  • Thanks to Issue 32 funds, the City of Cleveland has reinstated street sweeping services.

Resurfacing projects today will take place in:

  • Ward 6 on E 84 – Woodland to Quincy [Topping]
  • Ward 1 on E 142 – Kinsman to Milverton [Prepping]

Thank You Video: 88 Dogs Adopted in 4 Days From City of Cleveland Kennel

We asked for your help and, Cleveland, your response was overwhelming. In four days, 88 dogs were adopted from  and placed in forever homes.

Last week, the City of Cleveland’s kennel operated by the Division of Animal Care & Control was full to capacity. The kennel is considered full at about 150 dogs. At one point last week, the kennel housed more than 180 dogs.

In a thank you video posted to the City of Cleveland Facebook page, Mayor Frank G. Jackson and Chief of Animal Care & Control Ed Jamison expressed their heartfelt gratitude for the community’s response. They also thanked voters for supporting Issue 32, which will fund the new kennel opening in 2018.

City of Cleveland Announces Weekend Parking Restrictions in Entertainment Districts

Members of the public are reminded that parking restrictions will occur over the course of weekend days in the Warehouse District and in the Flats East Bank. Signage will be posted during daytime hours and the parking ban will be in effect on Friday and Saturday evenings beginning at 8 p.m. through 4 a.m.  Any vehicles parked in violation during these times will be cited and towed.

Restrictions will occur on these roadways:

  • Old River Road from Main Avenue to St. Clair Avenue
  • West 10th Street from Main Avenue to St. Clair Avenue
  • West 9th Street from Front Street to Superior Avenue
  • West 6th Street from Lakeside Avenue to Superior Avenue
  • West 3rd Street from Lakeside Avenue to Superior Avenue
  • Saint Clair Avenue from West 9th Street to West 3rd Street
  • Lakeside Avenue from West 6th Street to West 3rd Street

Streets within the entertainment districts become very crowded during weekend evenings. Vehicles parked along the curb lane contribute to overcrowding and adversely affect the flow of traffic.  In addition, overcrowded roadways make emergency vehicle transit (Police, Fire, EMS) very difficult, compromising the ability of first responders to respond to emergency situations.

Members of the public are reminded to check for signage upon parking vehicles on streets in these areas prior to the hours in which the ban is in effect.  Parking lots within the entertainment districts and throughout downtown are available for paid parking.  Public transportation is readily available through the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority.  Check http://www.riderta.com/ for schedules and routes.

If a vehicle was towed, drivers may contact the Cleveland Police Impound Unit at (216) 623-5060. If a vehicle has been towed, drivers must go to the walk-in Customer Service Center located at the City of Cleveland Vehicle Impound & Clerk of Courts Payment Center 3040 Quigley Road. The following items are necessary for vehicle retrieval: proof of current registration, photo identification and all overdue parking tickets must be paid in full.

City of Cleveland Requires Street Vendor’s License For Special Events

The City of Cleveland is stepping up enforcement of its Street Vendor’s License requirement for Special Events.  At least one person in the working group must hold a current and valid Street Vendor’s License and Identification Badge.

Per Section 675.02 of the Codified Ordinances, “no person shall engage in vending anywhere in the City without a vendor’s license.”  The only requirement for vendors participating in Special Events is the Street Vendors License and Identification Badge.

To clarify misconceptions about the Street Vendor‘s License, here are some common questions answered:

  • Who needs a Street Vendor’s License and ID badge? A Street Vendor’s License and Identification Badge is required for any person selling, offering or displaying for sale, or soliciting another to purchase, for present or future delivery, any goods, wares, merchandise, subscriptions, services, pre-packaged frozen desserts, commercially pre-packaged foods and beverages from, in, upon, along, or through the highways, streets, or sidewalks, door-to-door on residential property, or in the open air or from a temporary shelter or vending device upon private property.
  • How much is the Street Vendor’s License and Identification Badge? The fee is $60 ($60 for both the License and Identification Badge.) This fee is non-refundable.
  • When does the License and Identification Badge expire? Both are valid beginning August 1st and expire on July 31st of the following year.
  • How do I apply? Download and complete the application here. Applications can be delivered in person or mailed to Cleveland City Hall, Division of Assessments and Licenses, 601 Lakeside Avenue, Room 122, Cleveland, OH 44114.  Applications will be accepted Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.  Applications and supporting documents can also be emailed to DALLicenses@city.cleveland.oh.us.
  • What do I need to submit with my application? Copy of a current and valid government issued identification.
  • What types of payment are accepted? Fees are payable by cash, check or credit card. Make checks payable to the City of Cleveland.  For online submissions, download and complete the Automatic Payment Authorization Form.  A secured fax line has been established for the return of the form.
  • Does everyone in my business selling goods at an event need an ID badge? No. But at least one person in the vending group must have a Street Vendor’s License and Identification Badge. Each License and Identification Badge has the name of the person to whom it belongs.  Additionally, the Identification Badge will contain the photo of the licensee.  That person must be on site in the working group for the duration of the event.  Everyone in the group does NOT need to have a License and Identification Badge.
  • How long will it take to process my application? Applications submitted in person will be processed the same day. Electronic or mailed copies will take up to five (5) business days to process.
