Michael Deemer, President & CEO from The Downtown Cleveland Alliance spoke to Bill about Downtown Recovery - Giving Tuesday - Winterland Returns Saturday November 25th
- Downtown Cleveland leads the state in our recovery post pandemic.
- An updated study from the University of Toronto School of Cities and the Institute of Governmental Studies at the University of California, Berkeley reported that Cleveland is:
- #1 in Ohio
- #3 among U.S. cities in the Great Lakes Region
- Ahead of peer downtowns like Kansas City, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Detroit, St. Louis, and Minneapolis
- Ahead of larger downtowns like Philadelphia, New York, Seattle, Chicago, and Boston.
- Downtown Cleveland has 4 new businesses this month
- Mamilla in the Arcade
- Hype on Euclid Ave
- Shake and Slide in Tower City
- Choolaah on CSU’s campus
- This brings the total number of new businesses that have opened in Downtown Cleveland this year to 32!
- We look forward to welcoming our 33rd business, Apple Jax Toys, a local Cleveland business featuring vintage and modern toys, on Saturday, November 18, just in time for the holiday season! Tower City
- Save the Date - Giving Tuesday is November 28th.
- This year, we are raising money for our SEEDS program.
- SEEDS provides employment to those relying on shelters, through work enhancing the urban landscape Downtown.
- Participants learn professional landscaping skills that aid them in securing long-term employment and permanent housing. The goal is to transition individuals from the social services system altogether, all while beautifying Downtown Cleveland.
- Our Goal: raise $20,000.00 to provide the necessary resources for this program. Help us reach this goal today by donating on our website downtowncleveland.com
