April 2019: The City undertook a traffic and parking study for these streets. Equipment collected parking, speed and volume data and consultants and staff walked and observed the neighborhood and conducted parking counts from early in the morning until late into the evening.
May 2019: Consultants entered, reviewed and analyzed the extensive data collected which documented on-street parking at various times of day, traffic volume, and traffic speed and distilled it into an understandable format.
June 2019: Planning, Economic Development and Police staff met with the parking and traffic consultants to discuss next steps and create a neighborhood survey to collect neighborhood perceptions about current conditions and possible solutions in advance of the neighborhood meeting. Gathering neighborhood insights will supplement the hard data and allow the team to make the neighborhood meeting more productive and meaningful.
August 2019: Surveys will be taken by neighborhood residents and a subsequent fall neighborhood meeting/workshop will be held to review the hard data, survey data and to discuss ways to address the issues. Residents of Grandview, Bellfield, Delaware, S. Overlook, Harcourt and some North Park neighbors are asked to take the 5-10 minute survey at ClevelandHeights.metroquest.com where including the residents’ address is required to complete the survey. The survey will close on August 31, 2019. A paper copy of the survey may be requested by contacting Kara Hamley O’Donnell, City Planner II, 216-291-4885 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
