Thanks to Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s enhanced budget, made possible by Issue 32, the City of Cleveland will embark on more street improvement projects in 2019 than years past. Projects span all neighborhoods and wards throughout the city.
Leaf pick-up is underway. The City’s seasonal leaf pick-up program begins Nov. 4, 2019. Residents will see city workers and vehicles in designated neighborhoods thereafter for eight weeks, weather permitting. The program provides pick-ups in high leaf-generation areas (view map and list of designated areas, view the fact sheet) reducing the need for residents to manually collect leaves. View the leaf pick-up program presentation here.
Here are some highlights about this year’s road work:
- 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.
- Thanks to Issue 32 funds, the City of Cleveland has reinstated street sweeping services.
- Leaf pick-up service has been reactivated in designated high leaf generation areas.
