West Side Market Paid Parking Begins Feb. 27, 2018

The City of Cleveland today announced that paid parking will begin at the West Side Market on Tuesday, February 27.

As the West Side Market and Ohio City continue growing in popularity, the new parking structure will relieve congestion and improve overall customer experience for visitors. West Side Market vendors and Ohio City businesses helped the City establish the fee structure.

The parking lot will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. The first 90 minutes are free for anyone parking between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Parkers will pay a nominal fee of $1/hour at a maximum of $10 per day. The business day concludes at 3 a.m. and the $1/hour rate begins.

Parkers may pay by credit card at the columns as they exit each lot or by cash or credit at the Pay on Foot machine. When parkers enter they will be required to take a ticket. The ticket will be needed to pay for parking and to exit the lot. Uniformed parking ambassadors will be available during the initial period to assist customers with the equipment.

Recent improvements to the West Side Market parking lot include an increase of more than 100 spaces and added lighting. A portion of funds generated from the paid parking structure will be used to repay bonds used to finance the lot improvements as well as capital improvements to the building.

The City originally announced its plan for paid parking in November 2017.

Mayor Jackson & Council President Kelley Release Statements on 2016 Bureau of Justice Assistance Presidential Candidate Nominating Convention Grant Audit

The City of Cleveland yesterday received a Department of Justice report auditing the city’s management of the 2016 Bureau of Justice Assistance Presidential Candidate Nominating Convention Grant. The funds were awarded to the City in support of the 2016 Republican National Convention. With one minor exception, which has since been corrected, the report did not identify any issues regarding Cleveland’s financial management, concluding the city appropriately managed the grant.
 
Mayor Frank G. Jackson and Kevin J. Kelley today released statements on the positive findings: 
 
“While the positive results of the Department of Justice audit may be a surprise to some, it was no surprise to the City of Cleveland. We not only hosted one of the best and safest conventions, but successfully managed a $49 million grant. As a city with a budget of more than $1.7 billion and one that has demonstrated sound financial management, we know how to manage resources. The team from the City and our partners are true professionals. I thank them for their support and attention to detail. It helped make the Republican National Convention a success and the series of audit visits that followed just as successful.” –Mayor Frank G. Jackson
 
“Despite concerns from those outside Cleveland, our city put on a flawless convention. Everything went according to plan because it was meticulously crafted and managed for more than 18 months by the City of Cleveland and a team of local experts. Today’s results show that our city was successful in our efforts and the selection committee made the right decision in choosing Cleveland as the location for the 2016 Republican National Convention. –Cleveland City Council President Kevin J. Kelley

Mayor Frank G. Jackson Releases Statement on Ohio Supreme Court’s Refusal to Hear Appeal in Ohioans for Concealed Carry v. City of Cleveland

January 31, 2018

CLEVELAND –Mayor Frank G. Jackson today released a statement on Ohio Supreme Court’s refusal to hear appeal in Ohioans for Concealed Carry v. City of Cleveland:

“I disagree with the Ohio Supreme Court’s decision not to hear the City of Cleveland’s appeal to uphold its own gun laws. The laws the City proposed and that were enacted by our City Council are reasonable and do not conflict with any state gun regulations. Local municipalities are the most familiar with – and the most impacted by— the public safety needs of its citizens because we deal with the results of crime and violence every day. In 2017, the City of Cleveland had 130 homicides and 112 of them were a result of gun violence. We are reminded, through senseless tragedies, of the need to remove and keep weapons from the hands of those who should not have them. We are not against responsible gun owners or responsible gun ownership. This is about the safety of our residents. Today’s court decision not only diminishes our Home Rule in the City of Cleveland, but weakens the ability of all municipalities to fully protect its citizens.”
