CLEVELAND, OH - Cleveland's mayor now wants to focus on the city's neighborhoods. It comes only weeks after the announcement that Mayor Frank Jackson is running for an unprecedented fourth term.
Jackson will soon introduce a plan to "improve the overall quality of life in Cleveland". According to a news release, that plan includes demolishing vacant homes, getting retail shops to move in, rehab old homes and help homeowners with down payments and renovate some community rec centers.
The mayor says the initiative is aimed at moving Cleveland forward using resources from the $25 million neighborhood transformation fund and the enhanced budget made possible by Issue 32.
